Exceptional Wedding Catering!

We had the pleasure of working with PEJ Events for our wedding catering and we had such a wonderful experience with the team. From start to finish, PEJ Events (facilitated by our amazing Event Specialist, Kristin Shrimplin) provided top-notch service that really elevated our wedding day!

The food was not only delicious but beautifully presented. We opted for culinary stations to allow more freedom for our guests to pick and choose which of the flavors of Texas they might like to experience. I rarely hear people comment on the food as a highlight at a wedding, but we heard from numerous guests that they wish they could’ve gone back to get more! The variety and quality of options certainly left an impression on everyone.

In addition to cuisine, PEJ facilitated the coordination of rental services provided by Premiere Events, which was an incredibly useful addition. Their team helped us in securing linens, glassware, and table settings that truly complemented our wedding theme and vision. By combining the services, it also helped streamline delivery and vendor coordination making the process as seamless and stress-free as possible for us.

What truly set PEJ Events apart was the remarkable customer service provided by our Event Specialist, Kristin Shrimplin. From our initial tasting consultation to the day of the event, Kristin was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was always available to answer any questions and offer guidance. Her professionalism, responsiveness, and dedication to ensuring we had a smooth, memorable event were immensely appreciated!

We cannot recommend PEJ Events and Kristin Shrimplin highly enough. The exceptional catering (and coordinated rental services) made our wedding day truly unforgettable!

PEJ catered my daughter's wedding. The food was awesome. The staff was very friendly and kept everything flowing flawlessly.

The food was wonderful. The staff did a great job of keeping everything flowing. Lori was very quick to respond to any and all questions. She helped me determine appropriate serving. They also catered to my vegan friends. The staff was very prompt and professional. They did a great job setting up, the presentation was lovely. At the end of the night they cleaned everything up and left the venue looking great.

Best Caterer, Raving Guest Reviews!

We absolutely loved PEJ! The brisket was amazing! All of the sides (we had the baked potato casserole, jalapeño corn bread casserole, green beans almandine, and the southwest salad) were delicious too! They were very professional and provided amazing service! All of the guests said how awesome the food was! We were extremely happy with their BBQ buffet option. They provided our cocktail hour appetizers as well, which were so good! The bacon wrapped quail legs and the meatballs were amazing. Everything was perfect, and we could not have asked for a better food option for our reception! We loved it so much that when we got home we had the leftovers for dinner the next day. They were also very quick to respond to my many emails.

PEJ's staff is excellent! As a wedding planner, I never have to worry about the food and service when they are in charge. They show up on time, set up, clean up, and the food is always wonderful. I have worked with them many times, and would not hesitate to recommend them to a bridal couple.
