    Out of This World!

    Not only did Harvest Moon create the most unique and fun menu for our October Fest themed palette, but the staff went above and beyond on our wedding day! The attention to detail, hospitality, and service was superb! They even made my husband's grandmother's signature dish that tasted just like hers! The communication for the year of planning could not have gone smoother! Trust is so important when hiring your caterer and Harvest Moon went above and beyond to make our special day perfect. I never had any hesitation when it came to Sally, Charlee and their team. Our guests still are speaking of how amazing the presentation and food was! You cannot go wrong with Harvest Moon!

    Simply the best!

    Hiring Harvest Moon was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. From our first tasting to the wedding itself, they were fabulous to work with every step of the way. Their professionalism and kindness made a stressful planning process a whole lot easier, and on top of it all their food is DELICIOUS. Our guests still are saying that the food was some of the best they’ve ever had at a wedding!! My parents are also big into wine, so Harvest Moon connected us directly with their wine provider, who worked with my dad to select bottles that they were both excited about. Above and beyond!!

    In addition to wonderful food, Harvest Moon was just spectacular to work with as well. When my husband and I had to postpone our wedding due to COVID concerns, the Harvest Moon team was so kind and understanding that it almost made me cry from gratitude (instead of from panic, which was a nice change of pace at that moment in time). And Mia in particular deserves a huge shout out. At our 30-day walkthrough she asked all sorts of questions I never would have thought of, and projected such confidence that she put me immediately at ease. On the wedding day itself she made sure my husband and I both got to eat plenty (a miracle!) and that our champagne glasses were always topped off. The HMC staff also sent us home with extra servings of each appetizer, entrée, and cake in the trunk of our getaway car.

    We are so, so happy with our decision to hire Harvest Moon. And you should 100% hire them as well! They are, quite simply, the best.

    * Update 2022 - We had the pleasure of working with Harvest Moon again for our large reception (thanks, Covid) and were once again beyond impressed. Anne was our day-of coordinator and handled everything with poise and expertise. The food was once again amazing, the drinks were wonderful, and our day was simply perfect. I would not hesitate to hire Harvest Moon again in the future!!
