It seems that God led my husband and I to Occasions at Stone River. This venue offers so much, such as themes, colors, DJ, Photobooth, their own professional chef. The food was amazing and they have tastings twice a year. Even though we had made arrangements for our own Wedding Cake, Photography, Florist...they have this to offer. Angela Johnson the Wedding Planner is right there for you at anytime when you have a question. I had a vintage theme wedding, they had all the centerpieces, old doors that were put at the front of the chapel. One of the most touching parts of this venue is they have a beautiful staircase that the bride walks down. It gives sucn an emotional experience for the groom and guest seeing the bride walk down these stairs.
They are such a caring Christian business, I would recommend this venue to anyone who loves the country and a golf course right next door. They will work with you closely on what you want to make your dream day come true.
Too, it's so convenient to have the wedding and reception in one location, you never lose a guest.
I just can't say enough about how wonderful and smoothly our wedding day went. It was perfect. Thank you Angela, Johnny, Betty, and Staff!!!

GO HERE, GET HERE !!!!!
This place is the perfect venue, services, and staff. Angela has such a easy way about her her calmness and coolness has a grip on everything you are worried about, when she says shes got it, just don't worry because believe me she does. Peter(MC/Dj) the man behind the scenes was fantastic,from meeting him at our food tasting, to the phone consult (which I cant express how helpful this was to us) he was a total support for us to lean on. The day of the ceremony he was working with our vendors and just ran the reception perfectly. For the reception man all I can say is Zach(chef) is the truth, that food was so good and those green beans oh man!!!. When you go and book you have to make it to a tasting this guy knows what hes doing and he does it well, extremely well its no joke. And lastly but far from the least was Micah(officiant), I saved him for last because as we said the day of our ceremony he was the icing on a perfect cake, he was so comforting and supportive to us he put us so at ease and handled or ceremony with such care, it brought us nothing but happiness.This whole place from the staff (who actually look like they like working there), the venue (we were sent about a million selfies of people in the gazebo), the food, just everything we had to put it frankly a perfect no hassles day.

Words cannot express how wonderful everything turned out at Occasions! My daughter, Re'Anna, was married on July 6,2014 at Occasions. We could not have planned it any better. April in the office has been wonderful handling all my crazy questions and dealing with payments. Angela was so great doing all the photos and directing rehearsal, all the waiting time and crazy nerves. The bridal photos were so beautiful, I can't wait to see the wedding/reception photos. Peter with all the bride/groom requests for the reception, you handled everything so well and the reception went so smooth and everyone had a great time. Chef at the reception, the food was great and everyone loved it. Everyone working the bar and food for the reception did such a good job packing up everything for us and serving us with a smile. I have gotten many emails from everyone that streamed it over the web and they loved being able to be a part of it and said it looked so good they felt like they were there. I don't know why I ever stressed over it because everyone at the venue was so helpful, professional, and relieved all my nerves. Job well done to everyone at Occasions!!! Julie Rowlett

I can simply go on and on about Occasions! Such a fabulous venue! My husband and I were on a very strict budget and had been looking everywhere before coming upon Occasions, only to find that other venues were super expensive and way out of our price range. Ms. Betty made it possible for us to get everything we wanted for our wedding. They have everything you would ever need for a wedding- ceremony, reception, food, cake- everything! They even had a pond with swans and also doves that you can symbolically release. Ms. Angela was incredible with the planning of the wedding and made sure that everything went so smoothly. She was also our photographer and took amazing pictures. Peter was a gem with the music selection- that man has a lot of patience! I never knew how hard it was to pick songs for a wedding! And, Chef Zach's food- the rancher selection- was such a hit! Everyone loved it! Mr. Crenshaw was the minister at the ceremony and was so thoughtful to get to know us and our love story. I am a very frugal person and I hate spending money, however, this place was just the right price and I have no regrets about my purchase. They have so many options, you can truly customize your wedding and your price. It was a wonderful deal! If you are looking for a beautiful, all-inclusive wedding venue on a small budget, check out Occasions! You will not be disappointed. :)

When planning my wedding at Occasions At Stone River, my main contacts were Betty (owner) and Angela (Wedding Coordinator and more). These ladies are AMAZING!! I am so appreciative of all that they did, starting with our first meeting, to ensure that we were able to have a wedding worth remembering. Their website is perfect! It clearly details all that is to be expected in reference to hosting a wedding at their venue, including prices.

Both ladies kept an open line of communication with me, and all that was promised was delivered. The chapel and reception decor was PERFECT; The food and service during the reception were OUTSTANDING...hats off to the chef!!; The cakes were AWESOME, (exactly what I asked for); Everything seemed to run so smoothly; ..and on the day of my wedding Angela ensured that all of my request were filled, down to the smallest detail.

I truly enjoyed myself, and can say that I definitely had the wedding of my dreams. Occasions at Stone River ROCKS!! Thank you, and your other staff members, for doing all that you did to ensure that I had a wedding that was worth remembering.

My husband and I are very happy and we would recommend this venue to anyone! Thanks again, and best wishes to all of you in 2014.

Occasions at Stone River was the first (and only) venue we looked at when trying to find the location for our ceremony.
Their flexibility and willingness to do whatever it takes allowed us to be worry free and enjoy our wedding day. Our guests loved the food (we chose the Rancher) and Peter and Micah kept our guests entertained throughout the afternoon.
I highly recommend Occasions at Stone River if you are looking for a venue with a staff that treats you like family and goes above and beyond to make sure your day is perfect. We are so thankful to have found them!

We are so glad we chose to have our wedding at Occasions, they have such a great set-up. Everyone practically bent over backwards to make it perfect for us. Betty and Johnny were both great and a joy to get to know. Angela was great at communicating with me throughout the process and Diane had to fill in for Angela and checked up on me numerous times the day of the wedding. She was fabulous and everyone thought she did a great job. Everyone loved Peter the DJ and he got people out there dancing, the food was awesome and everyone should try those scalloped potatoes!! We had such great time and even though we had ice on our wedding day everyone still did what they needed to do and our wedding was everything we wanted. Thanks to the entire staff that made our wedding day awesome.
Thanks again,

Angela,

Teresa and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and the staff at Occasions at Stone River. From the very beginning we were impressed with the venue and the professional guidance we received from yourself and Peter. I can't say enough about how accommodating you and the staff were to meet all of our needs. The week prior to the wedding, I was on the phone with Peter several times talking about the live music for the ceremony, and the band for the reception. I really appreciate his flexibility on some changes that Melissa made one day before the wedding. I have nothing but high praises for the entire staff. The day of the wedding went off without one glitch and I can't tell you how many folks raved about the venue, how great the food was, the professional staff, and what a great job Peter did interacting with the guest and keeping the
flow of the reception going. Thanks again for making Andrea's and Melissa's wedding a day they will cherish forever.

God Bless,
Mike Waters

Our wedding was on 4/27/13 at Occasions at Stone River. I was so very happy with everything from the very 1st detail to the very last minute of our wedding and reception. Our wedding Coordinator Angela Johnson went out of her way to make sure we were all taken care and that everything was exactly how I wanted it. Our DJ Peter Silander made sure our music was exactly how we wanted and was so caring about everything. I had read good reviews about Occasions and that is why we had our wedding there, but I never thought that it would as perfect as it was. At the end of the night we left there feeling totally happy with it all. On our way to our honeymoon destination we were coming up with our next special occasion so that we could go back, LOL! I would totally recommend Occasions to anyone that is looking for a special place that will see to it that you are taking care of in every way possible and that everything is perfect. AWESOME JOB! Thank you so much Angela and Peter. We Love ya'll!!

I would recommend Ocassions at Stone River to anyone that wants to have an amazing wedding & reception. The wedding coordinator Angela made our whole experience outstanding. The Chef Zach was very accommodating to our special request & the food was great! The staff was very friendly and helpful. We could not have asked for a more beautiful wedding experience!

We had our wedding here almost a month ago and it was wonderful! We were able to bring in our own decorations and use some of theirs as well. They accommodated a lot of our needs and adjusted to me changing my "vision" every week (thank you Pinterest) with no issues at all!
The food was amazing and all the guest kept coming up to tell us this. Everyone loved the photobooth that they have! It was a big hit!
Angela is awesome and heaven sent!!! She made my stress level drop everytime we talked! The DJ, the owners, and the staff are beyond nice and very professional as well! I loved every moment of our wedding and I'm so glad we picked Occasions as our venue! It was the Best Day Ever! :)

Occasions at Stone River is the place to go if you want an elegant atmosphere at a reasonable price! Our wedding was less than a week ago (Saturday, June 23, 2012), and I could not wait to return from my honeymoon and write a great review!

Although my husband and I live in the Grand Prairie area (about an hour away from the venue), we knew that Occasions at Stone River was the our wedding venue as soon as we saw it! Our wedding theme was "country elegance", and Occasions at Stone River delivered!

Venue: The venue looks exactly like the pictures! We were stunned when we saw it for the first time. It's really beautiful. I loved the ceremony area because it was an intimate setting. Sometimes, large spaces make it seem like there is a small number of guests. Our guests kept raving about the wedding! They loved the laid back, country atmosphere outside. They also loved the setting inside the ceremony building and the elegance of the reception space. We had our wedding inside, but everyone loved seeing the swans and the gazebo.

Food: Everyone loooooved the food! Our families know good food, and several people thanked us for choosing good food. We chose the Ranchers Menu, which included smoked pork, beef, and turkey along with a roll. We chose mashed potatoes and green bean almondine for the sides. We added a special punch that Occasions makes. People kept saying how much they loved it. It was really good. The food was great.

Music: Peter the Motivator DJ was a joy to work with during our wedding. He had some problems finding some songs that we really wanted, but he fixed the issue and joined up with Micah, the DJ. Micah added the other songs and kept that going while Peter kept the party going! Peter was very organized and contacted me many times before the wedding. He was personable, fun, and happy... which was a joy. His great ideas such as the money dance and the anniversary dance as well as the special entrance really kept the party going. Some people were worried that the wedding would not be as exciting because our ceremony was at 11:30am, but it was quite the opposite... thanks to Peter! When I had no idea of what to do, Peter filled it in and made great choices. Peter and Micah worked it out at our wedding!

Service: I can't say enough about Ms. Angela and Ms. Betty! They were so nice and accommodating from the very start! They were awesome. They had ideas and were in control and laid back even when I was a worried bride. Our cake caterer had an accident and left us with no wedding cake caterer less than two months before our wedding. Ms.Angela called one of her contacts in Royse City (Simply Everything),
and we were able to do a tasting that same day. The cake was delicious, creative, and less expensive than the other cake! Ms. Angela and Ms. Betty went above and beyond my expectations! Also, the servers at the wedding were very courteous and professional.

My husband and I had the wedding of our DREAMS! Our wedding day was so much MORE than we could have imagined. I don't know how they did it, but they "wowed" me ... and I'm the bride! lol. I felt like we had a wedding that costs twice as much as it really did. I would suggest Occasions at Stone River to any and every bride! Don't worry about it being far. We had a packed ceremony and reception. Everyone made it. Don't worry about having an early wedding (if you choose that option), it can still be just as fun if not more fun than an evening one!

I'm so happy I picked Occasion's for my wedding. The place looked fabulous and the food was amazing! Angela is very helpful and knows the in and outs of wedding planning. I wish I would have trusted her and Occasions more from start and it would have saved me lots of $. I brought in way too many little decorations and such which were not needed, when she says they have candles, ashtrays, and other items believe her! Also paid for outside florist, which really isn't needed with all the centerpieces they provide. Great place to get married!

She was very helpful and was easy to contact. The venue and the reception was so beautiful. The food they served was so delious. I couldn't have planned a better wedding for the money and time I had to plan.

Occasions was the first place my husband and I looked at for our wedding ceremony/reception and we booked it that day. I love the all inclusive feel of occasions but the wedding party still has control of the day and what they want. The catering occasions provides is top of the line, big shout out to Chef Zach and his amazing team. Everyone raved about the food. Angela our wedding day coordinator is the best at what she does. She is so calm and level headed, exactly what I needed the day of. This venue is gorgeous!

Occasions at Stone River was such a wonderful venue for both a reception and a wedding. My wife and I fell absolutely in love with them the moment we walked through the door to preview the site. They have many great services available. They have an in-house DJ and Caterer that are known throughout the DFW area as the best. Throughout the reception and afterward people kept commenting on how great the food and the DJ was. You cannot do better if you are looking for one place to take care of all the loose ends for you. They will do as much or as little as you would like them to do. Our only complaint is that we were unable to have the actual ceremony there, There chapel holds around 200 and we needed a little more than 250. Other than that we still used the bridal suite and the reception area! It was the wedding of our dreams!!!

I couldn't have had my wedding at a better place. The weather was horrible that day and they accomidated the wedding party and guests surprisingly well. They even escorted our guests from the chapel to the reception hall with huge umbrellas due to the rain. The food was excellent and the DJ was absolutely wonderful. Everything was decorated in a way that matched the exact colors of my wedding with no extra charge. We were allowed to bring in our own alcohol which cut down the cost of the wedding. Betty, her husband, and our wedding planner (which was included in the low cost of our wedding) were the best! I had no worries the day of my wedding (except the rain) because Darby, our planner, made everything go so smoothly. She was so sweet and even put up with some of my bridezilla moments without ever taking a smile off her face. I was a little upset when I walked into the reception and they had the meat set out to be put on rolls but Darby quickly changed that and within a few minutes, those pesky rolls were gone and they were slicing the meat on the cutting board. Everyone told me this was the best wedding they had ever attended from the awesome officiant to the smallest little thing like the perfect lighting. Everything was AMAZING!!!!!

Occasions at Stone River was my venue for my ceremony and reception. I LOVE the chapel!!! It was absolutely PERFECT in EVERY WAY!! If the night time reservation was still available when we went to visit, we would have chosen that. Occasions has dramatic chandeliers and several different lighting options which obviously can be seen better at night. Needless to say...I still picked Occasions and changed my wedding from night time to day time Just Because I loved it so much!! I searched and searched for venues and never really liked any others. The first day we visited Occasions at Stone River...we booked it. Angela was my coordinator and she is wonderful! We felt like she was one of our friends and she understood my vision and was so easy to work with. The day of my wedding I didn't have to worry about what anything looked like besides myself. I knew from getting to know Angela and knowing that we were on the same page with the look and feel of the wedding that if any 'glitches' happened, she would fix it exactly how I wanted it. THATS a great feeling!!!! The better news is....everything went perfectly and all of our guests commented on how smooth and beautiful the wedding was. Everyone we talked to said that it was the best wedding they had ever been to. I would definitly recomment Occasions at Stone River. They really care about you and your guests and it shows.

Occasions at Stone River hosted my wedding reception. Everything was absolutely perfect. The room was beautiful and the food was delicious. Peter, the DJ, was incredible. He took charge of the reception events and guided us along the way. Angela, the hostess from Occasions, was ever present to make sure all went as planned. I chose the pasta dishes and they were outstanding. All of my guests have commented on how delicious the dinner was. I did upgrade my salad choice to include walnuts and oranges. It was well worth it. I felt no stress and worry on my wedding day. I recommend Occasions At Stone River to all brides.

A friend of mine got married at Occasions in May of 2010 and I liked the place quite a bit , but what really was the deciding factor for me was her DJ Peter, so I booked my October Wedding here as well. I didn't have one person complain about anything everyone who attened out wedding said "it was the best wedding they'd ever been to". How often do you find that people have nothing to complain about?? Its RARE. Everyone complimented on the personal touches of our wedding, how good the food was, how well put together everything was....everything was just as I had always hoped it would be....perfect. I have to go back to Peter the DJ, this man is one of the most wonderful people I've ever met. His work truely speaks to the good person he is and lives to be. When Peter did our "Love Story" (A MUST if you have your wedding here) he spent over 16 hours working with us to record our story perfectly. He came to our house 2 different times to make sure everything would be perfect. He was patient while we recorded some things over and over and over. While all of this was alot of work it was truely worth it in the end. Our reception is what made the wedding "the best wedding anyone had ever been to". My day couldn't have turned out any better and I owe most of that to Occasions Staff, and to Peter Silander.....thank you so very much.

I'm not sure if all of the ratings for this place are so high because I got married there when they first opened, but my experience there was horrible. The only good thing about the place was that the food was delicious. After we signed the contract they began to tell us that everything was an extra fee. The coordinator that I was assigned had another job and was almost impossible to get a hold of. I was not allowed to pick out my own table center pieces. The DJ did not like my choice of music and continuously tried to talk me out of it. They day of they had bows on the chairs in the chapel. I saw them taking them off and asked why. They said they were for the wedding before mine and that if I wanted them it would be an extra charge...which I was never informed of. They were going to charge us to put cushions on the chairs in the reception area. During our reception our coordinator kept rushing us from one thing to the next. At 10 pm she told us that she was going to go get the bubbles ready for us to leave even though we were not ready. I told her that we werent, but she went ahead and told us to say goodbye to everyone and went to get the bubbles ready. We had the space until 12 pm. All in all my experience here was terrible and I DO NOT RECOMMEND this place to anyone!!!!!

Occasions at Stone River responded with the following comments:

Four years later, I'm saddened to learn that you were not happy. Since your wedding we have had hundreds of weddings and have always had good reviews. We try extremely hard to make each bride have a wonderful experience. To respond to your comments: When a bride books her wedding, the choices she makes are what she pays for. There are no additional fees unless she makes additional choices. Regarding bows in the chapel, the sashes on the chairs are part of the package and there is no extra charge for them, they are included. Brides have always had their choice of centerpieces. There are nine centerpiece choices for the bride and she may choose any that she likes, or she may bring her own. It is our desire for every bride to have the experience that she has always dreamed of. We have and will continue to do everything that is within our control to make each bride's experience a good one.
