We cannot say enough for Occasions! From day one they were amazing. We really picked them in the beginning because they were the easiest to communicate, and people gave rave reviews about their food. Let me just say that my husband and I have very difficult schedules, especially leading up to the wedding. I was working 80 hr/wk overnight and he was working similar hours but during the day. Let's just say we weren't the easiest people to communicate with -- but occasions was wonderful and really accommodated our schedule. Throughout the wedding process they were phenomenal, and working with the linen shop was a breeze. I changed my mind MULTIPLE times about the menu and they were very accommodating, and the week before was sending them changes in the tables and seating arrangements and guest number -- and guess what, it didn't phase them one bit. On the day of the wedding they were also wonderful when I accidentally forgot two guests, and they fit them and found meals for them with ease. With regards to the food, our guests have been raving about it. From the custom appetizer they made for me, to the stationary cheese table, to their prime rib, to their vegetarian quinoa cakes, to their roasted chicken -- people kept saying "this is not like regular wedding food -- this is way better!" Our guests are still talking about the food today. Occasions, thank you so much for all of your help and for making our wedding amazing. AND, thank you for putting up with our 80 hour a week night/day schedules!!! You are amazing and we would HIGHLY recommend you to anyone looking for a caterer!

We had extensive planning emails with Occasions and they were FABULOUS! They made great suggestions and they were careful to research each question or suggestion we had. They were honest and straightforward about prices and choices. When the wedding finally came, they were perfect, both for cocktails in a tent and reception indoors. Service was impeccable--they had what we had ordered, and everyone was served, all night, without delays or mistakes. They contributed a lot to what turned out to be a perfect event. DO use them!!

Occasions catering was a pleasure to work with and helped to make the most amazon night of my life happen. Everything was perfect, minus the fact, after telling them we had a heavy drinking crowd present, not enough alcohol was brought, and they ran out of liquor towards the beginning of the night..... Disappointing to us. Other than that and a few wrong meals given to guests because "they didn't have enough" everything else went well! I highly recommend them for anyone having a large event and needs assistance with a lot of set up and take down

The Occasions team were more than just caterers -- they helped make our day look beautiful and run smoothly. We were very impressed with how everything turned out (our guests loved the food) as well as the whole planning process. Paige and her team thought of every detail and were extremely accomodating to our vision for the day. They were also flexible down to the last minute -- literally, as it rained shortly before the cocktail hour was scheduled to begin. Overall, we couldn't have been more pleased with Occasions and would highly recommend them to other Vermont couples.

I cannot say enough about Paige, Hayley and the rest of the team at Occasions. We were married last weekend at the 1824 House. Occasions catered, coordinated and provided linens for both our rehearsal dinner and wedding.

Living in PA, and planning from a far, my mom encouraged me to get a wedding planner to help with everything, but after talking with Paige I realized that it wasn't needed. She kept me on track from day one. Finding a menu and linens that met our goals and our budget. She was always quick to respond to all of my questions and open to any ideas that I had. She also reminded me in advance when decisions needed to be made and funds were due. I joked with her that in the final days, she just took over when she realized that I had lost my ability to make decisions.

On the day of the wedding, it was Hayley who took charge. The team arrived and set up the tent, tables and chairs. The linens were beautiful and the design they created for our wedding cupcakes was amazing. They set up the wedding chairs and alter at the top of the hill behind 1824, all while the rest of us prepared for our day without a thought about all of these beautiful details. You know when you are sad to say goodbye that you loved your caterer, and I was very sad to say goodbye to these ladies. Brides do yourselves a favor and go with this team, you will not regret!!

We used the Linen Shop as they were the preferred vendor for our venue. Jodi was very hard to get in touch with--not returning messages or e-mails. When we got our first estimate we were charged more for both our table runners and napkins than we were quoted when we first met, and there was a non-refundable damage fee that we were never told about. Then, a week before our wedding we found out there was a back order on some of our linens and we had to change things; however, this was reflected in the final cost. Overall, I would not recommend the Linen Shop.

As a full service caterer goes, we could not have asked for more out of Occasions. The company was thorough, their service excellent and their hands on approach was incredibly confidence building while we prepared for our big day. The fact that they have close relationships with other companies in the area, including the tent company that we used on that day, allowed for us to plan completely and to execute flawlessly. On our big day, the food and service was amazing. Our bill was itemized and Connie was willing to work with us on every point, from food to alcohol to the colors of the table clothes and style of the place settings. Everything looked awesome, and at no time were we left wondering what happens next. If you are in the Vermont area, I would thoroughly recommend Occasions. They were truly amazing.

The Linen Shop really came to the rescue for us when our previous vendor fell through, the same week as our wedding! The rep we worked with was wonderful- she responded immediately, sent me prices, rental info, color swatches, and more, ASAP. Once we had decided on what we wanted (and it was certainly a long process!), she even dropped the linens off at our house for us! I highly recommend The Linen Shop to any bride that has concerns about getting quality, beautiful linens for her big day.

The professional waitstaff moved between courses seamlessly and the food was amazing, our guests couldn't stop talking about it!
They also provided our linens through the Linen Shop, which added the perfect touch to our beautiful day.

From the first moment that I began discussing my wedding with the lovely ladies at Occasions I knew that we were in the hands of caterers who could be trusted with making the day very special. Our guests raved about the food/drinks and presentation at the wedding, and I am still hearing about it long after!

As our wedding was set to take place just after Hurricane Irene it was true that flood devastation impacted the Occasions family, staff, and vendors, but everyone at Occasions remained level headed and on track, with a healthy dose of optimism and realism.

Against all odds, they created an elegant event that was most memorable.
Our sincerest thanks go to everyone at Occasions for ensuring that we ended up with the magical event we had hoped for.

We were blessed to work with Connie, Hallie and the whole team at Occasions Catering. They truly made our day as special and wonderful as possible. Connie's expertise and experience were clear from the very first meeting and she made us feel not only confident but excited! We worked together on a menu that truly fit our wedding day, as well as, our rehearsal dinner. The menu options were numerous and very, very flexible. They even went as far as to develop a new appetizer for us based on something we described and it was fantastic! Once we had a menu sketched out, Connie sat down with us and did an extensive tasting including wine pairing, that again got us really excited. Everything was delicious and beautiful! Leading up to the wedding, the whole team at Occasions was always available for any questions we had. They were also very proactive outlining the plan and organizing everything - they made it very, very easy for us to show up and enjoy our day without even knowing we were being lead through a very carefully executed time plan involving not only us and our guests, but vendors and their timelines as well! Everything ran so smoothly and our guests raved about the food. We highly recommend Occasions Catering and are so grateful they were a part of our wedding day!

The level of service provided by Hallie and Connie at Occasions is unparalleled. They went above and beyond in crafting a menu for us with A LOT of special and extraordinary requests. We cannot say enough good things about the professionalism and quality of their food (check out their charming restaurant The Porch if you have a chance!). For the quality of their service and willingness to accomodate all of our special needs, Occasions is surely one of the best catering options in all of Vermont.

Occasions Catering is the exclusive caterer for the wedding venue I chose, so - like it or not - we had to go with them. Lucky for us, not only did we like them, but I was very impressed by Hallie's professionalism and organization. I can't say how much I appreciated Hallie's attention to detail in a process (planning a wedding) that was new and overwhelming to me. As a direct result of her experience, she thought of things that this bride would not have even considered. It was great that, even though we didn't have the ability to pick a caterer per se, we still had many options to choose from otherwise. Occasions had lots of varieties of linens, utensils, serveware, glassware, everything. And as for the food, in addition to tasting fabulous, it was obvious that it was carefully prepared and professionally served. With respect to the value, again I equate the word "value" to the word "economical." The catering costs were not entirely economical, but I realized they faced additional preparation costs due to the layout of my venue. Having said that, you still get what you pay for - a high class operation. I have already recommended Occasions to another friend who decided to use them.

Connie and Hallie are wonderful to work with to plan our wedding. They are extremely professional and responsive. They helped us make the right decisions without pushing us to do more, even though we could have easily done more and possibly gone overboard with extras. Their Linen shop is just amazing and I think I had more fun with the decor options than picking the food. But the food is simply amazing. You should definitely take the opportunity to go to their restaurant to taste the food prior to hiring but you won't be disappointed. I was very happy with Occasions and wouldn't hesitate to use them again.
