What people are saying about Occasions Catering and Special Events!
“I just wanted to thank your “day of” staff. The people who worked the day of our wedding were absolutely OUTSTANDING! They were professional, helpful, nice, just down right incredible! Our day was absolutely perfect in large part because of them. Thank you for all your help with the big things and little things. From cleaning up, to setting up, to bringing a wet rag to us after we smashed cake. Nothing went unnoticed or un-appreciated! Thank you for everything! Your staff is one of a kind! Don’t lose them! Thanks again!” – Laura, Bride (137 guests at Sanders Mansion)
“We have used Occasions Catering for events from 8 persons to seated dinners for 250. In every instance, the professionalism of the staff, quality of the food in the various menus we selected, the efficiency in set-up & clean-up, and the beautiful place settings have been very well received. Occasions’ ability to shine have been demonstrated in being flexible with our changing requirements and occasional last minute challenges that have contributed to flawless events.” - Steve Klein; Ramtha’s School of Enlightenment, Yelm
“When my daughter got married we were not sure where to turn for a caterer. The venue we were using gave us several different business cards for caterers in the area. When he handed us the one for Occasions Catering, he stated that this caterer is here almost every weekend so they must be doing something right. After working with Occasions I can see why they are in such high demand. My daughter had a large wedding and Occasions came to the rescue with their excellent food and friendly, capable staff. Their insight into what needed to be done to host a large event and how to keep things running smoothly meant I was able to relax and enjoy the evening. I will always cherish the memories I have of my daughter’s wedding and I can’t thank Occasions enough for all they did to help make her wedding special.” – Laurel, Mother of the Bride; 300 guests

“I wanted to send you a personal note to say thank you for all the work you put into making our event at the Port of Olympia so fantastic! In my usual panicked state, I created some confusion during the set up and you were so gracious and very helpful with it all. Also, we received so many compliments on how wonderful the food was. This is the largest event I have had to plan and you took the stress right out of it!
“Thank you for all of your assistance with our reception! I am somewhat new to the event planning world and you guys were extremely helpful to me and made it all so easy.

I will be sure to use your services again and I’ll be more than happy to refer my friends and family to you.” – Mandy Lill, Washington Public Ports Association; Corporate Reception for 300

We loved everything about “Occasions Catering”!” -Gordon and Patty
“Our wedding reception was fabulous!!! It was everything I envisioned and so much more. You and your team did a wonderful job. I didn’t interact with the staff much, but when I needed something or asked for something they were polite and friendly and saw to it immediately. The food was amazing and that is what I’ve heard from guests as well. The decorations were so gorgeous and it was so perfect. I can’t even describe….I had an amazing day and time. Thank you so so much! I don’t have pictures yet, but as soon as I get them, I will send them to you. Once again, thank you for everything Marie, you made my fairytale come true!” - Michelle
“The wedding was perfection. We all had too much fun, the staff was wonderful, everything went really smoothly, the room was gorgeous, the food was fantastic… We are still having people call us with praises and raves about everything!”
“Thank you for the prompt and comprehensive response, Ashley. Sometimes when evaluating various suppliers and vendors (regardless of the event type), the differences among them are subtle. In the case of our catering services exploration for this wedding, Occasions has been a standout in terms of customer service and professionalism.”
“The room was beautiful and great set up to accommodate both wedding and reception. Kathy was fabulous for keeping us organized and knowing when to come through the big doors. Staff were very attentive and well organized- ready for all details, e.g. cupcakes arriving and needing set up. Food was fabulous, everyone complimented the choice and how good it was. The whole evening went so smoothly-that seems to be the common comment: ‘that was the best wedding I have attended, it went so smooth, so fun and relaxing.’ For me, the whole evening was very fun, no stress, only one time of panic when we didn’t have enough places for everyone to sit-our food count was accurate but the additional babies & little ones on chairs took at least 10-12 more spots. But staff quickly put up another table and it went smoothly. We will highly recommend the venue and your staff to many others as I know our guests will as well. The Bride and Groom commented: “It was a perfect night.” It doesn’t get much better than that!!!. Thanks again for all of your help and making it so special. “
