From the moment I contacted Occasions At Stone River in Royse City, Texas, I knew my wedding day would be a complete joy with no worries and concerns. Everything was beautiful using the colors and decorations I selected! All of my guests enjoyed the absolutely delicious food. We had selected the pasta dishes and the upgraded salad with greens, walnuts and oranges. Every dish had its unique flavor and presentation. Our DJ Peter Silander was amazing! He kept the reception party alive and even taught some line dances to our guests. His energy was never-ending! Angela Johnson, the hostess for Occasions At Stone River, welcomed the wedding party and directed us to our places. She was ever present to make sure everyone was well taken care of and that our wedding reception was a delightful event. I know that Occasions At Stone River hosts wedding after wedding, but I still felt that my wedding day was very special to everyone that works at Occasions. If I had to repeat my wedding day, I would certainly do it again at Occasions At Stone River. This is the place for a stress-free event of any kind.

The first time my now husband and I visited this place we knew it was the one! The venue is beautifully set up and was perfect for what we were looking for. It was great for us because we are busy professionals and they are a one stop shop. I had very little time to plan and they make it so easy. It was stress free! We had a beautiful indoor ceremony on a Sunday afternoon all of our guests commented on how beautiful it was. Can't say enough wonderful things about the entire Occasions team and all who they are associated with. I could give kudos for pages!
Oh BTW the Mac and cheese was to die for!!! :)
Wedding was Sunday September 1, 2013

My wedding at OSR was more than anything I could've possibly imagined for myself. From the location to the reception, OSR was perfect. My special day flowed so smoothly and was low-stress because of the wonderful staff! The best part- Angela Johnson. This woman was my guardian angel from beginning to end. Anything I needed, she made happen. You want to work with this woman! We brought in a few things for the reception (cake, alcohol, DJ), but OSR took care of practically everything else! For the price, it's worth it! My wedding was beautiful and is still talked about! THANK you Occasions at Stone River!

Occasions at Stone River was ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS! They definitely had the best place for the best price. I could not have asked for better service. Angela, the photographer and coordinator, was AMAZING! The pictures captured all of the fun we had. Everyone at our wedding complimented us on how great the food was. My wedding reception was better than I ever imagined. I never had to stress about anything, it was all handled by the staff at Occasions at Stone River!

I would like to take this opportunity to recommend
Occasions at Stone River to anyone seeking a venue. From the very beginning we were impressed with the venue and the professional guidance we received from Angela and the rest of the staff. I can't say enough about how accommodating they were to meet all of our needs. The week prior to the wedding, I was on the phone with the DJ Peter several times talking about the musicians we were bringing in for the ceremony, and the live band we intended to use 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.

After seeing my brother and his wife get married at this venue, we were definitely interested in using the venue as well. We booked close to two years in advance, and they honored the prices from when we booked, even though they did go up some. The coordinator and owners are great!

The Occasions staff was the most helpful staff of any place we used for our venue. Angela was not only there the day of to assist with anything we might need but throughout the process of wedding planning she made herself readily available for anything that might come along. The staff at occasions made payment arrangements with me when times were hard. The musical director, Peter, made my dreams come to life and truly is a master at his craft. We were able to afford everything we wanted and more!

If you are looking for a beautiful location with excellent staff that won't bust your budget, then Occasions at Stone River is the place for you! From our first trip out there, my husband & I knew this was the place for us. The venue is beautiful and Angela, the coordinator, goes above & beyond to ensure a perfect day. It's a wonderful one stop shopping experience. We were able to chose our table linens, centerpieces, and menu items so that we had a customized day. We also took advantage of the DJ service (which was amazing!) and the photo booth (which was a HUGE hit with our guests!). There is both an indoor and outdoor ceremony area. This was one of the selling points for us, as we were hoping for an outdoor ceremony. The weather had other plans, but Angela didn't skip a beat in having the indoor area ready for our ceremony. Both the ceremony and reception areas were beautifully decorated, we are still getting compliments from our guests about it! The food was delicious and the staff was wonderful. On the day of our wedding, Angela was on top of everything. She made sure that things were on schedule, everything that we needed was taken care of, and did it all with a smile and wonderful attitude. My husband & I couldn't be happier with our experience at Occasions! I wish we could have another wedding there because we had such a wonderful experience! Thank you Angela & all of the Occasions staff for making our dream come true!!!

Our wedding at Occasions was everything I ever imagined and MORE! If you are looking for a beautiful and fun venue that takes the stress completely out of wedding planning, Occasions is IT!!! I looked so many places in search of the perfect reception venue and when I got to Occasions I knew it was the place for us. I love the pond with swans swimming and the gazebo next to it- it's a beautiful venue inside and out. The staff was incredible and every person I spoke with went above and beyond to make our wedding exactly the way I wanted whether it was the owners, the coordinator, the DJ, or the wait staff. The food and drinks were delicious, the whole place looked beautiful when we arrived, and the music was awesome! Angela (the coordinator) was so accommodating and I can't believe how perfectly she planned every detail- she thinks of everything! Even our guests could not stop complimenting our choice of venue- the groomsmen enjoyed the party so much that they paid to add an extra 30 minutes to the reception which Angela was very flexible about and made it go so smoothly. Thank you Occasions for providing me with my dream wedding!

I knew what I had in mind for my wedding, and with the help of Angela and the staff at Occasions, my dream wedding came true. They were helpful with all the details, handled the stress and final touches; as well as, gave me ideas I had never even thought of during planning. The colors and centerpieces (half down by me and my mom and the finishing touches by Angela) were exquisite. The Dj Peter kept the mood upbeat and gave suggestions during our phone interview (without being pushy). my groom and I raved about how much fun we had with his help. All of our guests had an amazing time and the day was worry free, all smiles... a dream come true! The food was exceptional as well!! I can not tell you how great everyone at Occasions at Stone RIver truly was on our big day. My groom and I met with Johnny, owner and our officiant, before the wedding and he only increased our love for the venue we chose. THe location and place our beautiful! I adore the swans, Angel and Marshmallow, floating in the pond right outside. You have to visit this place to truly see how the specialness of it. I have no negative comments. The entire day was wonderful! Thank you to everyone at Occasions for making our day so special!!

I had an indoor wedding here. They are so helpful with everything and make your day the best that they can. I loved how it had a chapel and reception area. It is also has a very intimate setting.

This venue was amazing because it was all there in one place! I was planning my wedding from Arizona so I wasn't able to constantly make trips out there before the wedding! Any questions I had were promptly answered and my worries were gone! The venue had their own DJ if you wanted to use him, own caterer, and own officiant! This definitely made it helpful because I wasn't having to go all over the place and try to find one! All the help was great the night of the wedding and I had no worries all night! Angela (the coordinator at Occasions) takes care of you and she is AMAZING! They let you use all their decorations or they let you customize it to your wedding! There is also a hotel that works with the venue and provides a free shuttle to and from the wedding for guests who don't want to drive or have been drinking! A great place overall and I am so glad I went with Occasions at Stone River!!
