About The Wilshire Caterers

The Wilshire Caterers, a hotel in the Northern New Jersey area, offers an elegantly classic location for a couple’s wedding. At this loft space, couples will find gorgeous spaces inside and out, from extravagant ballrooms to romantic gardens. This venue is located approximately 15 minutes from downtown Newark, New Jersey.

Facilities and Capacity
At The Wilshire Caterers, couples will find an on-site restaurant and hotel, as well as lovely indoor and outdoor locations for their wedding. These spaces welcome a maximum of 375 guests. Outside, couples will find a stunning white gazebo upon freshly cut green grasses where they can exchange their vows and start their life together. For a larger ceremony, couples can enjoy the splendor of a paved walkway to a white pergola under which they can marry. A backdrop of lush trees adds even more greenery to the mix for a naturally beautiful setting. In the Grand Ballroom inside the venue, couples will find an elegant and classic ballroom with a shining wooden dance floor, a dazzling overhead chandelier, and charming crown molding accents. In the Tuscany Ballroom, numerous gleaming chandeliers drop down from the ceiling to light up the room, while a bar — with black and mirror accents — stands like an island oasis offering drinks in the space. A light-up dance floor and two-step stage transforms this ballroom into a club as the night wears on. In the Loft at 350, a hardwood floor and industrial ceiling greets couples. A longer and more narrow space, this is the perfect location for an indoor ceremony, intimate reception, or after-party.

We had our wedding last month at the Wilshire, and everything on that day was above and beyond our expectations. John and his staff are amazing and did everything in their power to make sure our day was absolutely perfect. From the moment we booked our date, John was there with everything we needed and was always very helpful. We didn't know what to expect when we started planning, but everything came together beautifully. Our guests loved the venue, raved about the food, and had a blast at our wedding. We can't thank John enough for everything that he did to make our day so special!!
