    We would hire them again!

    They catered our daughter's wedding and it was perfect. Everyone raved about the food - appetizers, salad, entrees and desserts. The service was attentive and gracious. We worked with Katie Quinn who was fabulous.; she was our point person. The salmon was delicious and the filet was cooked to perfection and so delicious. The mini trio of desserts were a big hit (the mini creme brulee was amazing!). The appetizers - tomato soup with grilled cheese, poached pear with sangria & blue cheese and a brie tart with lingoberry on top were so good. Thank you for a memorable evening for our daughter's wedding!

    AMAZING! Couldn’t have asked for a better experience!

    Getting married during a pandemic is stressful, changing your wedding plans 2.5 weeks before the big day is stressful, but finding Katie at Occasions Catering made the process so smooth and amazing! Not only was she responding to emails at ALL hours of the day and night, the menu came together beautifully, the presentation of the food was beautiful, and the food was even better than I could’ve dreamed! All of the staff at the wedding were so kind and helpful. I couldn’t imagine having anyone else catering our wedding at this point! I would highly recommend using them if you’re looking for a great reliable, friendly, and delicious catering company for your big day!

    Amazing!!!

    Our experience with Occasions could not have been better. We worked with Victoria Spizzirri, Elri Nieuwenhuizen, and Katie Quinn, and all three were so helpful and wonderful (especially during COVID-19). They provided dinner and dessert at our wedding; it was so delicious and beautifully served. Our guests were raving! I highly recommend using Occasions to cater all the important events in your life. :)

    Above and beyond!

    Occasions couldn't have been a more perfect caterer for our wedding. Katie was our contact throughout the planning process, which was quite a roller coaster during COVID-19. Katie and the team at Occasions were there for us every step of the way, which can not be said for some of our other originally-planned vendors. They were flexible & willing to work with us when we had to change our venue, alter our timeline, and reduce our guest count. They sent a service staff of all team leaders for our wedding reception, which made for amazing, above-and-beyond service. And the FOOD! The passed hors d'oeuvres, salads, and entree selections were all so delicious and memorable. Chef D and her team prepared us a truly excellent wedding day meal. Occasions was everything we could have asked for and more. We can't thank them enough for providing us the meal of our dreams on our special day.

    Best Catering Company Ever!

    Occasions made my wedding the most memorable and unique wedding ever! They customized everything for me and they were able to accommodate the millions of allergies me and my guests had.

    Amazing Experience and Delicious Food - Katie is great!!

    Katie and Occasions were amazing! We did not select them for our event but in the initial process, Katie was extremely responsive and helpful. The tasting was amazing. I have never been so full. I would highly recommend them!! Definitely worth reaching out and seeing if they would be the right fit for your event!

    Outstanding Caterer - We could not be more impressed!

    Occasions provided the catering and beverage service for our wedding earlier this month, and we were incredibly impressed by the professionalism, care, and communication of the staff all throughout the planning process. From our tasting to the last minute details, Katie and Letty were helpful in answering all of our questions and offering suggestions to work within our budget while accommodating our requests for meals that every guest could enjoy. During our wedding, the team worked behind the scenes to make everything run smoothly, and I couldn't be more appreciative of how pleasant the staff members were. Occasions' pricing was very competitive, and our guests loved the food! We would highly recommend them.

    Delicious BBQ for Wedding

    Occasions did the catering for our July wedding, and I would highly recommend them for anyone looking for a wedding caterer! We wanted our wedding to feel like more of a laid-back, outdoor affair so we went with the BBQ buffet, and LOVED it – especially the mac n cheese :) Katie and Letty were super responsive during the planning process, and they were SO accommodating with all of the strict dietary restrictions and allergies that we had in our group. Thank you for everything!

    Delicious, Creative Food

    Food was one of our biggest highlights on our wedding day. Katie and her team worked with us to create a menu that represented our favorite foods! We opted to doing a stations model AND a late night menu, which allowed all of our guests to eat plenty of food without the long wait. The team was friendly, responsive, and kind. We couldn't have found a better caterer (and we researched at least 4 or 5). Occasions' tasting experience exceeded all of our expectations. Loved working with them!

    Occasions Catering was AMAZING! Katie and her team truly brought the wedding of our dreams to life!
    The food was wonderful! We got to do a private tasting before we chose the final menu and they made it very personalized to us. We got to try every item on our menu. They even did a second mini-tasting when we decided we wanted to change to Mac & Cheese!
    Occasions Catering truly bent over backwards to make sure everything was perfect, organized and ready for the big day. And when it came to the wedding, I didn’t have to worry about anything as they had it covered.
    The staff was very friendly, bar tenders were great, and everything went off flawlessly!
    I would recommend Occasions Catering for any wedding or other event needs!

    We had the pleasure of working with Occasions Catering as our food and dessert vendor for our wedding. Occasions stepped in when our original caterer backed out and proved why we should have gone with Occasions in the first place! The food was divine, the professionalism was on-point and our contact, and they exceeded our expectations. We worked directly with Katie and she was AMAZING to work with. She even helped to coordinate our rentals, which took tremendous pressure off. I would recommend Occasions to any bride in Colorado!

    We worked with Occasions Catering for our September 2016 wedding at Hudson Gardens and couldn’t have been more pleased with them! From the initial meeting to the tasting to the walk through to the night of, they were professional, friendly, and efficient. Lynn Hubert, who was our event coordinator, is simply fabulous – She has years of experience, is well prepared and is just so much fun to work with. Victoria Spizzirri was our night of coordinator and was fantastic – She made sure we were taken care of, food and drink wise, and made sure everything ran smoothly with her staff and the venue.
    Occasions has tons of menu options, and we really enjoyed working with them to create a unique menu for our event with some French nods and fun options, like mini desserts in lieu of a traditional cake. Most importantly, all of their food is delicious! So many of our guests told us it was the best “wedding” food they’d ever eaten. They are competitively priced and will work with you on sticking to your budget. They also help with any and all rentals you may need (linens, easels, etc).
    We highly recommend working with Occasions Catering – You won’t be disappointed.

    Wow. There are no words. Jeremy Bronson at Occasions is the man behind the magic, and he is amazing. He had us at hello, and the goat-cheese chive potatoes and macaroni and cheese bar sealed the deal. Jeremy and his staff are exceptional; they made us our own special plates of passed cocktail snacks and dinner fare so that my now-husband and I could be sure to eat during the reception. Not only was the food beyond compare (and people just can't stop talking about the macaroni and cheese with pernod!), Jeremy and his staff really care about you and your day. They listen to your vision and plan their plating and presentation around that. For example, we had a lot of rustic decor and sunflowers, so Occasions used birch or aspen risers and re-used our sunflower sprays from the ceremony on the stations to echo that detail.

    More than that, Jeremy actually saved the day. There was a snafu with one of our other vendors two weeks before the wedding and, at the final walk through, it looked like there was no way to fix the problem. All of the sudden, Jeremy piped up that he had been texting with a good friend of his, who was available the day of the wedding. Jeremy put us in touch with his friend - and we had a new vendor lined up that afternoon. He helped us avert a potential catastrophe, and I am so grateful for his kindness, emotional intelligence, and ability to problem solve on the fly.

    Occasions is unparalleled - the food is delicious; the staff is excellent and kind; and the company (and Jeremy in particular!) goes out of its way to make you feel special, important, and loved. So look no more - Occasions is the best choice out there!

    The food was one of our favorite parts of our wedding! We worked with Holly and I can't sing her praises enough. She was amazing to work with throughout the whole process and worked with our budget while coming up with innovative ideas to solve problems that came up. On the wedding day, everything went perfectly and if there were any problems, I didn't know about them. I would recommend Occasions to everyone, especially brides that are on a budget but don't want any of their guests to realize they are!

    We worked with Lynn at Occasions and she was wonderful! Very helpful, worked with us on last minute decision making and I never felt like I was out of the loop. On the day of the wedding everything seemed to run seamlessly. The food was to die for and the staff was incredibly helpful. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for catering and would without a doubt use them again in the future!

    I would recommend Occasions to anyone planning an event or wedding! We used them for our wedding. Great price (under budget) and we picked their backyard BBQ menu which was fantastic! We had a small country wedding with 100 people and the food was amazing. They served my husband and I all night. They made sure we had anything we needed. They even gave us a "Togo" box for the hotel. If you choose them- you have to try their Mac n Cheese! It's to die for!!!! Thanks Occasions!

    Our caterer was the real star at our wedding. Everyone was so impressed with the quality of the food, the hustle of the staff, and the over-all service that they provided. I was a hard sell on the cost of a catering company and paying for all of the services, but by the end of my experience with Occasions, I wish I had let them plan the entire thing. Jeremy, one of the owners, is one of the most professional and straight forward people that we dealt with in this whole process. He really knew what he was doing, let us have our crazy ideas but explained the reality of the situation, and always answered our questions. I can only expect that the people who work for him are held to the same expectations.

    We really appreciated occasions and the wonderful event they threw for us. We couldn't be happier.

    Occasions was an amazing caterer to work with for our wedding. We worked with Brandi who was probably my favorite vendor. She was very helpful--listened to us throughout the process (took into account our price limits, our dietary restrictions, etc.) and made it very easy to make sure everything was perfect. Then there is the food-it was amazing! We got endless compliments on everything--the tasty little grilled cheese and tomato soup in mini mugs for appetizers, the best macaroni and cheese we've ever had for dinner, and all the delicious dessert shooters. We were hoping for left overs the next day but our guests seriously dug in. Brandi also took care of our linens and a few cocktail table orders for us. She made everything really easy and in the end it was really everything would could have imagined!

    Occasions Catering was incredible to work with. Brandi walked us through ever step of the planning process and provided helpful tips to make our day special while staying in budget. The food was devine (our guests said it was some of the best they have ever had at a wedding) and the staff was super nice and helpful.

    The staff at Occasions were delightful to work with. Katie Seno was an incredible event designer, and her experience and advice made for easy and confident decisions. She responded to emails and calls promptly, and was very hospitable during the tasting. The food was DELICIOUS! The presentation and quality of food was outstanding. I would definitely recommend Occasions Catering to anyone who enjoys working with fun people, salivating over a spread of colorful food, and a variety of amazing tastes!

    This is the best food I've ever had at a wedding, and I'm so glad we had Occasions cater our big day. We worked directly with Dana to arrange everything. She provided us with some sample menus to get an idea of what was possible, then set up a tasting...the fun part. We had a sampling of items we liked from their sample menu, and a couple things they made for us that were not on the menu. Everything tasted delicious. We loved the flavor of the flatiron steak but ended upgrading to a more tender cut since we love steak so much. We also had a delicious salmon dish and a few sides to go along.

    Working with Dana made the process very easy. Once we had the menu set, she took care of everything else. On our wedding day, their staff brought us appetizers so we wouldn't miss out on cocktail hour as we got a few photos with our family. My husband and I made it a point to set aside some time to actually eat our meal...and we were not disappointed. Their setup was beautiful as well- we did a seated salad, then served the entrees buffet-style. I have never seen such an elegant buffet before- it is not your traditional burners-below the chafing dish kind of display. We received so many compliments on our food. They even packed up the leftovers for us and we are still enjoying it! Everything was unbelievably delicious.

    The staff was also wonderful during the event. They set up everything perfectly and were very friendly to our guests. They worked great with our venue and other vendors, and had a seamless execution. We cannot say enough wonderful things about Occasions Catering!
