Just a short note to thank you for being there all the time so attentive to every detail.  I just loved the way you guided all the guests downstairs with the Mariachi to say goodbye to the newly weds – and the wedding had a very happy ending!  You got everybody out at the same time.  You took great responsibility and were very gracious in every way. Definitely, I will give you a call to ask you for your great services on my daughter’s wedding. Thank you again, and wish you great success on every occasion!!

“We love working with all our clients, and are always committed to all their needs. I got married May 6, 2011, and Aurora was FANTASTIC! She kept everything organized, helped my parents pack up all my things after the reception and even kept my family from making embarrassing toasts. She was brilliant and did it all while never breaking a sweat. I couldn’t have had a better and smoother wedding day. I have recommended her to everyone I talk to because I know she can get the job done and make you feel completely carefree. Thanks Aurora & Occasio Productions.”

I just wanted to tell you how beautiful everything was last night! The table linens were absolutely gorgeous, especially in that gorgeous room. A lot of people commented on the table cloths, those are definitely show stoppers. Ben was wonderful, and I can’t wait to see the photos. Thank you for your help and for doing such a beautiful job!

“I can’t thank Occasio enough for their help with this project and the additional insight and advice. It is because of people like you all that the impossible is made possible and people’s lives are forever changed for the better.”
