    The Perfect Wedding Caterer

    Reasons DJ's California Catering are the perfect wedding caterer & you should hire them immediately (per us & our guests):

    - Doug is a professional who responds quickly & honestly. He is so easy to get along with and super accommodating of various dietary restrictions.

    - Pricing is very upfront and detailed, with the quality of the food & rentals surpassing the quantity of money you would spend on it.

    - The food was INCREDIBLE! One of our guests even told us they had a literal dream of the risotto from our wedding.

    - The servers were kind, attentive, & wonderful.

    - The bar tenders made strong drinks and excellent conversation.

    - They were able to accomodate our COVID protocol! Our event was not a super spreader event.

    There was a bit of a hiccup for a last-minute rental and a bit of a miscommunication (I think?) between one of our family members and a server, but still 10/10 stars. Because life happens and what more (than above) could a couple ask for?

    Pro tip: Order more appetizers than you would think. Why? Because guests will be very hungry & want more. Why? Because they are delicious & some guests *cough best friends* will eat more than they were supposed to.

    Great service and tasty food

    DJ's provided catering and rentals for the cocktail hour and dinner reception for our outdoor wedding in Santa Barbara. They were great to work with--friendly, responsive, and made tasty food. The team was even able to accommodate last minute additions when the weather changed on us.

    They provided a seamless experience for our wedding that required complex coordination with multiple locations. I highly recommend Doug and the DJ’s Catering team!
