We used Occasions Catering as our Bar Caterer. I worked with Connie at Occasions Catering and was impressed with her from my first phone call to the end of the day at my daughter's wedding. She assisted me in planning for 136 guests. Her experience was invaluable and she relieved me of many anxieties in planning a barn wedding by helping me understand what was needed.
Connie and her assistant's hard work during the wedding reception made it look seamless. I had many compliments about them. Thank you for helping to make my daughter's wedding such a huge success.

I dare you to find more delicious food and delightful people to cater your wedding than Occasions! My husband I could not be happier with the services, support, and friendliness provided by all of the folks at Occasions Catering and The Linen Shop all along the way. Hallie, Paige, and Connie were responsive, efficient, and so easy to work with. Our guests spent the day (and days after!) raving about the food (which we already knew was going to be out of this world), the gorgeous venue (highly recommend 1824 House too!), the friendly and accommodating staff, and the all around feel of welcoming and fun these guys emit. The special touches they added -- like a special plate of cucumbers with my 10 year old step-son's name on them (because he LOVES cucumbers!) at the hors d'oeuvres display -- made it feel like ours was the only wedding the folks at Occasions had been thinking about for the past year. These guys are both experts in their field and just really great people. Highly highly recommend!

Connie, Hallie, and Paige of Occasions Catering are an exceptionally stellar team and we cannot thank them enough for everything they did leading up to, during, and after our wedding. Occasions catering does much more than prepare an exceptionally delicious meal; they provide guidance on timing, seating, tablescapes, room flow, the ceremony, and more! They held our hands through every step of the planning process, working within our budget, providing accurate estimates, and answering each of our questions promptly and honestly. They are the reason our wedding ran smoothly and as scheduled.

In addition to their catering business, Occasions also provides linens, and ours were beautiful. Hallie not only walked me through her entire inventory, but when I realized that it did not include anything with navy and white stripes, Hallie ordered new fabric to create incredible table runners that absolutely made our reception pop. I loved all of our linens and truly appreciated that Hallie was willing and able to add to their inventory.

Ok, let’s talk about the food. It. Was. Delicious. Our guests raved about our rehearsal dinner (with several options including pork tenderloin, hanger steak, and butternut squash ravioli), and many told us our reception dinner was the best they’d ever had (with vegetable pot pies, herbed chicken, family style mac and cheese, and a beautiful watermelon and feta salad) – we absolutely agreed! Paige also secured the Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream cart for us, instead of a cake. Amazing! Their mini chicken and waffles are one of the best things I’ve ever eaten, the mini pulled pork sliders were tender and juicy, the crab cakes can definitely stand up to what we’ve been eating in Maryland, and the cheese table selection was fantastic. We are so grateful to Occasions Catering and cannot thank them enough for ensuring that our wedding was fun, delectable, and that my husband and I were able to actually eat during our reception.

My spouse and I planned our Vermont wedding from California, and The Linen Shop made it so easy to get exactly what we wanted! Hallie was easy to work with, prompt with her communications, and delivered on exactly what we envisioned for our reception. The Linen Shop has an extensive selection of linens for every taste. Everything we ordered was delivered and set up according to our specifications, and we had absolutely no problems. Hallie even communicated with our florist to get a clear sense of our vision, prior to making recommendations to fit our needs. We could not be happier!

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!!
