Excellent food and service!

My husband and I used harvest moon for our wedding in July at king family vineyard. We worked with Kylie, who was amazing throughout the whole process from tasting to the wedding itself. The food and service were both wonderful, and the team worked seamlessly with KFV staff. Couldn’t recommend enough!

Great experience, great food

We were so impressed with Harvest Moon and Kylie's whole team! The table setups were beautiful and guests kept raving about how good the food was (which I feel is quite an accomplishment since generally my expectations for wedding food are low). I can't throw enough of an endorsement behind the mashed potatoes and mac n cheese! The tasting process was also fun. We also did an open bar package and the drinks were tasty (our specialty cocktails were a hit) and the bartenders kept the party going! All in all, it was a great experience!

100% recommend!

Harvest Moon was such a pleasure to work with! They were extremely responsive and communicative leading up to the wedding. They did a great job working with us and my wedding planner, and listened to our food preferences and dietary restrictions of our guests. We couldn't be more impressed with how smooth everything went on the actual day and how delicious the food was. 100% would recommend them to any future bride and groom!
