    Hallie and crew ROCK!

    Suffice it to say, Occasions MADE our wedding. From planning to execution, it felt like we were working with family to organize the wedding of our dreams. Phone calls were easy and fun, Hallie helped keep us on schedule with all decisions, and the whole team made our food vision come to life. We had a lot of special requests because my husband is a foodie, and they rolled with all of them. They even figured out a way to serve home made ice cream sandwiches with my chocolate chip cookie recipe! Our guests LOVED the food (still raving!) and we loved how much care and attention the team paid to our requests. If you want to feel like you have a real say in what you serve on your wedding day, these are the people!

    The best!

    We are so happy we hired Occasions to cater our wedding! From start to finish, the team was responsive and communicated clearly. They offered great ideas, tips, and advice which came in handy since we started the process really not knowing what we wanted to serve, or any of the things that go into planning an event like this. We were even able to send them two recipes that we love and cook for ourselves regularly, and they happily recreated it for us so perfectly, making our wedding feel even more *us*. All of the food was phenomenal and we received rave reviews from our guests. They also handled our bar service and were able to get a keg of one of our favorite local beers, and created a signature cocktail that was delicious. At our venue we needed to arrange for our own rentals for kitchen equipment, tables, chairs, linens, etc. and Occasions took care of ALL of that for us, making the whole planning process far less stressful. Everything was just wonderful and we wish we could do it all over again!

    Wish I could redo the wedding just for the food!

    There are so many things to think about when planning a wedding. It is completely overwhelming to think about all the options out there and deciding which vendors to use. We knew food had to be the top priority. After looking at several venues and being underwhelmed by our options, Connie made the trip over to our house (an hour drive) and not only provided the best food, wine and liquor menu options, but also took the time to walk our family property and gave advice on what our VT August outside wedding could look like (my childhood dream). We chose our home as the venue based off of Connie's vision and support (what other caterer would also help map out your property for several hours?) This team goes above and beyond and was available for every question/concern we had throughout the entire planning process. After committing to the date based off of Occasions availability, the planning begins and I knew I wanted the farmhouse and round tables covered in an elegant linen. As there are millions of options out there and I once again was overwhelmed, Hallie immediately narrowed in on my vision and provided samples (along with comparisons) and made the linen choice effortless. By hiring Occasions Catering, you are investing in professional, caring, calming and passionate people. I had several unique menu requests (my mothers recipes) and Connie and the chef were happy to accommodate and recreated the recipes exactly as I had envisioned. There are so many things you have to worry about leading up to and on the big day, but Connie and her team navigated my family throughout the whole process and blew everyone away with their spectacular cheese board, chicken and waffles snack (the best thing I've ever eaten) and maple pork tenderloin (just to name a few). You will be making the smartest decision for your wedding by hiring Occasions Catering. Hoping they open a restaurant so I can enjoy their food whenever I am in their area :)
