Food Truck Weddings $$

So you've heard that food truck weddings are the way to go, but not quite sure how it works...

One of the best parts about a food truck wedding is that you don't need to book an expensive venue. We cater just about anywhere in the food truck and this can help reduce costs as well. Fully licensed and insured bar service is still available when booking the food through our food truck as well. We even offer special discounts when booking an open bar and the food truck for your event!

Some people worry about using a food truck for a wedding because of the potential for a line to form while waiting for food. We typically use the food truck as our on site kitchen but most often we still serve the food in a buffet style setup under a tent or other covered area to make sure guests don't run into a line for dinner. We have lots of street inspired cuisine and custom menus available. Also ask about having the food truck stick around for some late night treats while the party is going on!

Drop Off Catering For Weddings $

Keeping things super casual? Catering By Luna can provide drop off service providing a great meal for your guests and still keeping your budget tight. Please reach out to us to discuss options and remember that we never increase our posted pricing beacuse we happen to be catering your wedding!

    Absolutely loved working with Kelly Starr!

    I absolutely loved working with Kelly Starr for our wedding at Ithaca Yacht Club, and highly recommend any event that you can hold with her!

    I’m a detail-oriented person myself, so I deeply appreciated Kelly’s professional, highly organized, and calming presence throughout our wedding process. Kelly handled so many components of our wedding - from the menu, to specialty cocktails, to table and tent rentals, to the layout for the ceremony and reception, to the event timeline. Thanks to her, my husband and I were confident that each aspect of our wedding would be covered seamlessly.

    Originally, we were holding our Friday night welcome party at Ithaca Yacht Club. But due to COVID issues at our original location, with just a few weeks before our event, we had to change our plans to hold our full wedding at Ithaca Yacht Club.

    That required so many new components of our wedding (an entirely different plan for our ceremony and reception, last minute rentals, a new menu, etc.). Kelly was incredibly organized and was our support system throughout all of these changes. She was on top of everything while also being very warm, sincere, and assuring - exactly what we needed!

    Thanks so much Kelly for everything you did to make our wedding possible, you’re the best!

    Go luna!

    Racquel and the Luna team are some of the best people I've ever worked with in my life and my career is in restaurants. I would recommend them to ANYONE, but specifically anyone who appreciates unique foods or has dietary restrictions. We had GLUTEN FREE arancini and my wife has never been so happy. Please tell your friends and family this is the place to go for amazing foods of any kind and the staff once again is hands down the best I've ever seen. GO LUNA!!

    Catering By Luna's reply:

    It was a pleasure to work with you in building a custom menu that worked for Jess and the guests. I’m elated to hear it was so well received! We appreciate your kind words dearly. Best wishes to you both!

    Highly Satisfied!!!!

    When Covid-19 canceled our original wedding, we had to downsize to an intimate wedding. I instantly reached out to Luna Catering because the food is always amazing and I figured it would be suitable for the casual event! I instantly loved that they have both a casual and formal catering menu and I was very satisfied by their quick communication and flexibility.

    Everything was done via email and the food drop off was contactless which was comforting during this crazy time.

    I highly recommend Luna for both your events and just for your everyday eating!!!
