Krave Catering was the MVP of our wedding day! They went above and beyond, and it’s clear their team loves doing what they do! Throughout the planning process, Kate was polite, professional, and easy to communicate with. She has many years of e...
xperience in the industry - she offered us valuable advice and helped us understand what our wedding day would look like. Kate was well-informed and kept us updated about the constantly changing COVID-19 guidelines. We felt very reassured and safe having our wedding during the pandemic.
Early in the process, we scheduled a tasting and we appreciated how accommodating they were of the fact that both of our families wanted to join in on the experience. They were receptive to our feedback and by the second tasting they had perfected our wedding day meal. They even created an appetizer and dessert especially for us inspired by our favorite foods. We ended up going with the family style service and it was a hit with our guests!
Krave Catering really shined on our wedding day. Kate and her team laid out our centerpieces for us and brought their own decorations for the catering/gift tables to complement ours. We told her we were looking for a modern farmhouse type feel and she definitely delivered! During the actual celebration, her team took very good care of our guests and we particularly loved that Kate made sure to know who my parents, my husband’s parents, and my grandmother were to ensure they had anything they needed. Their team was flexible to unexpected delays to our timeline and they worked really well alongside our other vendors to make our big day a success! At the end of the night, her team tore down all our decorations for us, packed them away for next day pick up, and sent us home with some food so we could enjoy our night as a newly married couple! We honestly couldn’t have asked for a better team! Definitely will be using their catering services again in the future!

She decorated our space exactly how we envisioned it and even added so many extra special details. Kate was right there whenever we needed her! Krave is hands down the best vendor we went with!!! I HIGHLY recommend them!!

ed at the Sussex County Conservatory, which is a gorgeous DIY type of venue. The Conservatory is partnered with 3 caterers, of which you have to choose from. I contacted Krave first and immediately felt comforted and confident they would make our wedding special. With DIY weddings, there is tons to do and remember. It is so fun creating your vision, but there is an extra element of stress added. Kate assured me she would fill in any gaps that I missed and it would be perfect. It was PERFECT, and I wouldn’t change a thing!
Kate was so incredibly sweet and flexible, especially during the crazy times with pandemic regulations and uncertainty. She kept me inspired and hopeful and kept me on track throughout the whole experience. She is more than just a business owner.. she puts her heart and soul into your event.
I am so happy Krave has a restaurant that we can visit from time to time, because their food is amazing. It’ll be great to reminisce about our perfect day on date nights. Thank you Kate and all the Krave team members for everything!!!! You guys do phenomenal work :-)

E CHECK. Kate and the entire team at Krave are not only wonderful to work with but they are truly extraordinary at what they do. Since the wedding we've received endless compliments about the food and service that Krave brought to the party and looking back I can't imagine working with another vendor. I don't believe there's anyone that cares so much about your tastes and interests and making your party go as smoothly as possible as Kate and her team.

day of coordination, planning and attention to detail it was a 5 star experience.......and I work in the hospitality industry! They are so professional and polished and they are INCREDIBLE and FLAWLESS at everything they do!!!!
Working with their entire team was a dream! I am a very detailed person and they were completely understanding and willing to work with me and hear out all of my ideas!! They were extremely supportive and easy to work with leading up to the wedding - which was much appreciated!!!
I cannot say this enough but THE FOOD was OUTRAGEOUS! I have been to 20+ weddings in the last 3 years, and honestly the way people were raving about the food brought tears to my eyes!!! The cocktail hour was so expansive (we added the New England Bar and Pub Bar tables) and their displays were beautiful!! One of my favorite things was that Kate matched her displays with our wedding style/decor, from the greenery and gold accents to the fonts of her table signs, talk about attention to detail - WOW!!!
Kerry our Maitre'd, was so attentive and helpful on the day of! She took care of my husband and I to ensure we had drinks in our hands, food, and that we were enjoying ourselves every minute of the wedding! Kerry's stand out moment was when the bottom of my dress was stained black from the mud and wet grass outside from taking pictures and she was quick to jump in and help with a cloth and club soda and was completely a LIFESAVER for me before I walked down the aisle!!!

I had a bit of a hard time getting responses from the office but Kerry was always on it and made sure I got whatever info I needed. The day of my wedding her and Kate were there making sure everything ran perfectly and it did. With all that aside let's talk about the FOOD! We're still getting praises from our guests about how delicious everything was. They let us customize our menu to fit exactly what we wanted and were still the most affordable of the caterers my venue offered. I'm so grateful we had Krave for our wedding day. I wouldn't have done it any other way!

Krave’s food was absolutely delicious, but unfortunately not all of our guests got to enjoy their dinner due to how long it took for them to serve. Dinner started at around 7:45 and it was still 9:30 and people had not been served yet.
was very responsive throughout the whole process, but unfortunately even with how organized she was there were at least 3 tables I know of where not enough chairs corresponded with how many people were seated at each table.
Our experience with Krave was decent throughout, but something I would highly consider is how long it takes for them to serve. Our wedding had 190 guests.

I know how many people I’ve talked to who said they didn’t eat at their own wedding and I was so pleased when Pamela had everything planned and set out for us so we actually got to eat our food we picked out! My guests were blown away by the food. I cannot even count how many compliments we received on how great the food was. The staff working my wedding were very polite and professional. Staff continually made sure my husband and I had everything we needed. Pamela and Krave Events staff truly made my wedding amazing. I would highly recommend over any other caterer and event staff. They made sure my wedding was a dream and I cannot thank them enough!

e. From the first phone call more than a year prior to our wedding to the weeks following our wedding, the Krave team proved to be not only a caterer but an event coordinator, a logistics manager, a therapist, and a friend.
We worked with Kate and her husband Rich, Kerry, and Pamela for our event. Kate and Kerry specifically spent countless hours ahead of our event conference calling over every minute detail of the event. Details that are not catering related but that is what sets Krave apart from other vendors. They are true professionals who understand that the comprehensive success of your event means success for their business, and personal and professional reward.
If you want a wedding that is luxurious but a team who will understand and accommodate your budget, Krave is your caterer. If you want a small army of experienced event coordinators to ensure all of your decor is staged to perfection, including decor that they brought on their own, Krave is your caterer. If you want a point of contact to call on a Sunday morning when you are panicking about incoming storms, Krave is your caterer. If you want to serve your guests food that they will talk about for weeks following your event, Krave is your caterer. If you found an impossibly gorgeous wedding venue with impossible challenges and you need a caterer to create a wedding out of thin air, Krave is your caterer. If you want your caterer to be so amazing that your father dedicates a portion of his wedding speech to thank them, then Krave is your caterer.
Trust me, you want Krave Caterers on your team and you will not regret it.
