    Always Occasions is superb

    I was a vendor at the "LoveAlbertaLocal" art gala hosted by Cassidy from "Albertalocal," and "Always Occasions" did an impeccable job of making sure everything went ahead without a hitch.
    Quite an accomplishment considering new covid regulations had just come into affect a couple days prior.
    It wasn't hard to see all the care and planning that went into making sure everyone was happy and that everything was perfect.
    The venue is absolutely beautiful.
    Anna and her staff are diligent, welcoming, and friendly and they made the evening even that much more special.
    It was an unforgettable night made possible in no small part by "Always Occasions."
    I would definitely recommend them to anyone wanting to experience their own unforgettable night.
    Thanks so much, Anna!

    Always Occasions's reply:

    Oh Darlene! Thank you so much for such kind words! This really was an unforgettable night and I could not be more thankful for it! Your talent and passion just spilled out throughout the night and it was radiating and beautiful!
    It was an absolute pleasure and we look forward to many more incredible nights like this!

    Super friendly and helpful

    Anna was fantastic and went out of her way to make the day perfect, she even steamed my veil and helped me take down my up-do into a half up half down style. Venue is beautiful and unique, I’m recommending it to everyone.

    Always Occasions's reply:

    Awe love! It was such a pleasure to celebrate your day with you both and your beautiful family! With Alfie just stealing my heart! We were all so honoured to be a part of such a perfect evening. 🤍

    Exceeded all expectations!

    Trying to plan and pull of a wedding during a pandemic is hard enough as it… yet 2 weeks before our wedding, more restrictions were announced. I was a wreck to say the least! Anna’s kindness, compassion, organization, reassurance, and diligence completely blew me away. We were fortunate enough to be able to move forward with our wedding and Anna and her team were completely amazing. Anna was incredibly receptive to my vision and exceeding my expectations. She is definitely in the right of line of work because she is incredible at what she does and pours her heart into it! Anna and her team brought all of the decor, set everything up, took everything down the night of, and Anna even dropped off the keys to my vehicle at the hotel we were staying at so she could make sure everything got loaded into my car. Anna was also available to me the entire time at the wedding and surprised my husband and I work a beautiful heartfelt video of all of the big moments at our wedding. After the wedding a number of people and family members commented about her and her work ethic. She made our day feel that much more special and everything ran smoothly. I honestly can’t say enough good things about Anna and her team. I’m super grateful she was there on my special day!!

    Oh my heart! Thank you Megan, Your day was so special to us and your review has filled my heart with so much joy. Wishing you both so much love! Thank you for including us in what was an absolutely perfect day!

    Amazing Art Event to remember

    Always Occassions was such a pleasure to work with! Not only do they have the coolest venue in the trendy Manchester Square which is the perfect backdrop for photos! The service was second to none..I did not have to worry about a thing. They planned the food truck, the band , catering and had a full staffed bar that were so amazing with our guests!
    I highly recommend Always Occasions for your event or wedding!

    Always Occasions's reply:

    Thank you so much for trusting us with your vision for this night Cassidy.
    I could not be more thankful for the incredible experience to meet so many talented Alberta Artists and share that with our community. Your passion for your project is unparalled and we were all so honoured to help make this dream come true!
