Hey NJ Bees!
I’m on the hunt for a caterer! I’m a vegetarian, and I have several vegan guests, but both families are heavy meat eaters. So, I’m wondering if anyone has a recommendation for a caterer who could do the following:
1. A buffet-style dinner for about 200 people
2. Vegan and vegetarian options as well as meat dishes
3. Organic or local ingredients
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

I know I’m two years late on this but hopefully someone else will pick up the thread in a search and benefit.
I wanted a 100% vegan wedding in NJ, and couldn’t find anyone. People thought that “vegan” meant kosher or said they had to charge me more to “teach our cooks to cook vegan.” (That last one was from Ocean Place down on the shore.)
I finally found a place – really out of pure luck – that wanted to expand into vegan food. I am their first and helped create the menu, which they will presumably reuse and offer to other brides. They hired a vegan chef and the wedding is in September. It’s gorgeous and glamorous and everything you would want in a wedding….plus all the options for vegan food.

I’d be interested to hear how your wedding turned out and if any other bees need vegan wedding help, messge me! xox
