    The absolute best!

    Planning a menu for a backyard wedding in rural Virginia is no easy feat, but Harvest Moon certainly makes it look easy. The food is so incredible, and tasted just as delicious and fresh on our wedding day as it did during our tasting nearly a year earlier. We loved all of the optionality in creating our menu, and their ability to cater to certain dietary restrictions. We still crave some of our wedding day menu, that's how good the food is. In close partnership with their beverage director, we loved picking out local beers and wines that paired perfectly with our menu.

    We also engaged Harvest Moon for day-of coordination services, which was the biggest relief in our day. Kylie is a lifesaver, and her tip-top organization and wonderful spirit made our pre-planning and day-of a total breeze. We always knew she had our backs. Especially in coordinating vendors to a rural area, which can come with its own challenges, Kylie and the whole Harvest Moon team never lost sight of a single detail. With curveballs like rain and last-minute tent calls, Kylie and the whole Harvest Moon crew were utterly professional and unflappable. We would have been lost without them! Our wedding day remains one of the happiest in our lives, in large part due to Harvest Moon's professionalism, care, and excellent service. If I had to do our wedding all over again, I would pick Harvest Moon again and again!

    Responsive, detail oriented and professional

    Anne and the HMC team were extremely responsive throughout the entire planning process. Editing and adjusting multiple proposals for us to select from which is what you need when planning such a massive event. We highly recommend opting for the menu tasting, it gave us the opportunity to adjust flavors and provide feedback on the food. It was clear from that one tasting Anne meticulously relayed our comments to her team and they were applied to our reception.

    When you hire HMC you are paying for a level of detail that other vendors will simply miss.

    A big thanks to Anne and her team at HMC!

    Harvest Moon were a joy to work with

    From the very beginning, Harvest Moon was extremely responsive and clear about pricing, packages, and flexible options. We worked with Brittany (BK) who was fantastic, and they even worked with us to incorporate some Middle Eastern options into our wedding day. Our tasting was incredibly fun, and a highlight of the wedding planning process for us. They made us feel special and cared for throughout. The food itself was fantastic. It was very impressive how well they captured the flavors of dishes they had not made before. The beverages were also a highlight and all of our guests loved the mixed drinks and mocktails. We had a significant number of people at our wedding who were not drinking, and Harvest Moon worked with us to make sure we had great options for everyone, including a sparking cider toast in place of a champagne toast. We served a combination of our own Middle Eastern deserts and Harvest Moon鈥檚 excellent deserts and they set them all up beautifully. We are still getting compliments on our wedding food months later. Harvest Moon was a pleasure to work with throughout and we would highly recommend them.
