Fun, Delicious, and Professional Catering!
Gerard’s catering services—food and staff—were a perfect 10 for our wedding! We gave Gerard a budget and asked for a fun, somewhat non-traditional wedding dinner and he delivered perfectly. We had stations with brisket, amazing mac & cheese, and green beans plus another station with tacos and other Mexican dishes. Our guests loved the fun approach to the food and Gerard nailed the balance of making it delicious but still wedding appropriate. The guests also RAVED about the appetizers during the cocktail hour. The buffalo chicken meatball (with celery stick), mini quesadillas, and Asian beef shortrib were an ideal mix of easy to eat plus delicious and substantive (our dinner wasn’t until 8p, so guests were hungry).Sent on 01/06/2020
A special and well deserved shoutout to Gerard’s wait staff that worked our wedding. They. Were. Amazing. They read us as a couple and the crowd, and could tell everyone was ready to have fun, so they made sure we did—all while providing excellent and professional service. There wasn’t an ounce of stuffiness to them and they made us feel like they were really having fun serving the crowd, as opposed to watching the clock waiting for the night to be over. For weeks after the wedding people were raving about the food—and staff!—provided by Gerard and his team.

Going with Occasions Catering was the best decision that we made. Gerard was so responsive to every question that we had and so accommodating to all of our requests, concerns, etc. Marshelle was also wonderful and helpful in the weeks leading up the wedding to ensure everything was ready to go. We originally picked them because of how affordable the food was, but I’m so happy we went with them because of how many of our guests RAVED about the food. Both my husband and I both loved our food as well and were so grateful for the wonderful service we received to make sure we ate and had drinks in our hands. The bartenders were also a favorite and kept up with everyone’s requests. All in all absolutely amazing!Sent on 09/09/2018

Gerard and his entire team was fabulous! We are so glad we went with Occasions Catering. From the initial call to the tasting to the final walk through, Gerard was professional and worked with us through it all. The food is incredible! We received so many compliments on our food. My husband wanted to include a craft beer tasting, and Gerard offered ideas to help bring it to life and with the logistics. We had a few guests with dietary restrictions and he didn't hesitate to accommodate. The staff was friendly and attentive during the reception. Gerard and the entire Occasions Catering team delivers a service that is top notch.Sent on 04/30/2017

This was the best wedding food I've ever had, and all of our guests said the same. Many commented how they felt as if they were out to dinner at an upscale restaurant vs a wedding. In addition to providing linens, tableware, bartenders, and a skilled wait staff, we also received the service of their event coordinator who managed deliveries from other vendors and decoration set up. I didn't have to do anything but show up to my wedding.Sent on 04/20/2011

We used Occasions for our wedding at Salvage One, and we had a wonderful experience with them. Gerard and Marshelle were great to work with, and helped us tremendously with the planning of the event. On the wedding day, our guests raved about the food and the service provided by the Occasions staff. We were so lucky to have found Occasions and would use them again in a heartbeat.Sent on 10/29/2017

Occasions was great to work with. Gerard was very responsive and helpful throughout the entire process. He was very flexible allowing me to add a bride/groom drink and supplement the bar package with our favorite beers.Sent on 04/14/2015
My sister used Occasions for her wedding so I knew what to expect. Great service and great food! Highly recommend.
