Krug Catering at Orange Lawn Tennis Club hosted my wedding on 7/1/17 and it was nothing short of spectacular. Mimi and Mary were amazing to work with and made sure everything we wanted was executed to perfection. We had planned to have our ceremony outside, but due to the impending rain we had to bring it inside. Mary and Mimi made sure to make it look absolutely beautiful, and with the large windows in the ballroom it was as if we were outside anyway. The food was BEYOND INCREDIBLE- our guests are still raving about the food pairings and how delicious everything was. Chef Krug is truly a genius! Our bartender, Nick made us an awesome signature cocktail that was a huge hit as well. Our maître d', Khizer and my bridal attendant, Marjorie were amazing as well and could not have been more attentive and helpful! Together this extraordinary team truly made it the best day of our lives.Sent on 07/11/2017

My husband and I had the most amazing wedding day thanks to Chef Krug, Mimi and Mary! The entire experience was wonderful from start to finish. This venue is very elegant but also has a very personal feel. I would split our experience into three categories: 1) logistics, 2) food and 3) wedding reception.Sent on 10/03/2016
1) Mimi and Mary were so organized and such a pleasure to work with for the wedding day logistics. Both are so kind, personable, and were very understanding even when we had last minute changes the week leading up to the wedding. They are truly a great pair to work with!
2) Chef Krug did a fantastic job with the food! This is not your run of the mill wedding food- this is gourmet, seasonal and delicious. He was very helpful and spoke with us during the tasting as we decided exactly food options we would choose. People were raving about the high quality of all the food served. We couldn't have been happier with this!!
3) On the day of the wedding everything ran seamlessly. We had over 200 guests and all went off without a hitch. The staff was very professional and attentive. Orange Lawn is the most beautiful venue and I wouldn't have changed a single thing about our wedding day!!

WOW wow wow!! Mimi and the Krug Catering team at Orange Lawn Tennis Club were absolutely amazing. Mimi is an incredibly talented florist, decorator and event planner. I have worked with her in the past, but she blew us away and exceeded my already high expectations with what she was able to deliver for our wedding. Our bouquets were beautiful, the decor was flawless, and everything went off without a hitch from start to finish. Mimi took personal care to ensure that not only the day, but the entire planning process, was perfect. She has an eye for design, impeccable taste, and more creativity and artistry than any other event coordinator/manager I have come across. It is amazing that she is able to manage so many logistics AND provide impeccable flowers and decor with such ease. She sources the most incredible flowers, and you can be sure that your bouquet will be both gorgeous and UNIQUE. Also, the food and service that Krug Catering provided was phenomenal. This is not your typical NJ wedding caterer. Chef is just that, a CHEF. His farm-to-table approach makes such a difference in the quality and originality of his dishes. From cocktail hour down to the very last bite of dessert, my guests could not stop raving about not only the taste of the food, but the variety and creativity of the menu. I still have guests calling me about the brisket at cocktail hour. The options are plentiful and the quality is unmatched. The extra add-ons are well worth the money spent (we did the vintage ice cream truck and the grab-and-go sliders/grilled cheese/fries at the end of the night)... such a huge hit with our guests! Our only disappointment in the night is how quickly it went! We would do it all over again in a heartbeat, and we wouldn't change a single thing! If you are looking for a truly unique wedding in the midst of all the over-used and over-done NJ venues, one that will provide an experience so completely personalized to you, please visit the team at OTLC!Sent on 06/23/2016
