DRJ Catering has been catering weddings in New Jersey and beyond since our inception in 1993. There is almost no wedding arrangement or venue that we have not seen. From the back yard BBQ wedding to the white gloved wedding, we have seen and can do it all.
One of the most important days in a family’s life, is the wedding celebration. The time, energy and resources involved are often unrivaled. It has to be managed in a way that everyone is treated with great respect and care. Choosing an experienced caterer that can adapt to whatever the venue the wedding party chooses is critical. No two weddings are the same and DRJ Catering will always customize our services to suit your needs. If you are looking for a fun, casual, laid back wedding that you will always remember then we are for you. If you are looking for a white gloved, table side service with servers in tuxedos we are also happy to accomodate. Looking for something inbetween? You have found the right caterer. Whatever the event style, venue, taste and surrounding environment, we are here to accommodate you. We have done hundreds of weddings with hundreds more to do.
We are a one stop shop for all your wedding needs. If all you need is the food and the servers we can provide that for you but if you would also like us to take care of arranging rental items, photographers, florists, DJ’s, Bands, Photo booths etc we will be glad to take care of this for you.

When you book a party with DRJ, you are booking your event with our family. David gives his personal cell phone to every client and he makes himself available to his customers any time. This is a huge benefit and leaves very little room for errors due to miscommunication. Have a question? Simply give Dave a call directly!

We Have portable refrigeration we can also bring on site to accommodate those really hot days and those buttercream, wedding cakes. We can handle any special request from Kosher meals to gluten free to Vegetarian, just ask and we will take care of you.
No off premise caterer in New Jersey can provide alcohol as liquor licenses are not portable in the Garden State. However, we will gladly provide bartenders and advise you as to what you may need for bar setup.
LAST MINUTE BOOKINGS
We will try and accommodate any last minute parties you may have. You may have to be flexible with the day or the time but we can generally work something out for you last minute needs.
We will stay as long as you want us to but generally we serve an hour of appetizers, an hour and a half of the main meal and then dessert. Most parties last on average 6-10 hours depending on service required.
DEPOSITS & CANCELLATION FEES
We do have a booking fee which is 15% of the food and the tax in order to secure the date. When you give us the final number 10 days prior to the event we will send you an invoice and the balance is due 7 days prior if using a check or credit card or the day of the event if you want to pay cash before we setup. Unfortunately since we only do a maximum of 2 events per day and we are generally completely booked, we cannot offer any rain dates. Just note that we are prepared to cook rain or shine. In the event of a cancellation prior to the final number being given you will unfortunately forfeit your booking fee.
