Delicious Food! Wonderful People! Great Value!
Southern Harvest catered our wedding last weekend, and it was wonderful!Sent on 05/25/2021
I started working with Rachelle in 2019 and she was organized and responsive. During covid, it was so easy to work with her to change plans (probably 100 times!). The month leading up to my wedding she contacted me on her own volition once a week to make sure I didn’t have any questions! The day of the wedding, we didn’t have to lift a finger.
The food was delicious and there were so many options! We definitely recommend them!

Wonderful, Wonderful, Wonderful!
Before I met Rachelle, I was nervous about booking a bartender. We were on a tight wedding budget and I had no idea how the bar was supposed to work. Rachelle explained everything on the phone and over emails, outlining all our options. I'm so grateful she was patient with me because my future mother in law had about as many questions as I did!Sent on 07/24/2020
We figured out an arrangement that worked for our guest list, then COVID hit and we downsized from 100 to 8 people. That definitely changed our bar budget and Rachelle was quick to contact me and make different arrangements. When I felt most overwhelmed by the state of the world and the upheaval of all our wedding plans, she made it feel easy to adjust what we'd need for our new guest list.
It ended up being one of the most budget-friendly parts of our wedding planning experience! I was also super impressed by the beer and wine selections they had for the reception. My father in law is preferential to IPAs, while my father is a strict Sam Adams Boston Lager guy. She provided both and then some, plus wine options that were the perfect mix of dry/middle ground selections. Their picks were so on point, my mom even had a drink or two and I've only ever seen her enjoy a few sips of champagne on New Year's Eve!
Rachelle was wonderful to work with and completely understanding of all the changes we had to make nearly last-minute. We're so glad we connected with her and any bride who does the same in the future will as well!

So thankful we had Southern Harvest!
I don't know how if words can even describe how thankful I am for Tom and his team at Southern Harvest. Tom was so beyond personable and organized, I was so appreciative of him every time we spoke. Not only were they flexible with my wedding date being rescheduled TWICE, but also jumped in to help 4 weeks before our wedding for our rehearsal dinner when our original plans had to change. Then, 2 weeks after that I found out I had to be gluten free, and they made me my own personal plates! On wedding weekend, Lisa went above and beyond. She was not only so so kind and welcoming, but also so very helpful. We will never need another catering company as long as we live in the Raleigh area!Sent on 05/17/2021
