Harvest Moon is hands down the best wedding caterer in town. I knew from the moment I started working with them that they were true professionals. They were so accommodating to our suggestions for the menu and the special needs of our guests (we had several allergies and grandparents with special needs, and they were 100% on top of it the whole time). Not to mention the food is INCREDIBLE- I had guests coming up to me all night saying it was the best wedding food they have ever had. Everything went off without a hitch, and it is their attention to detail that makes Harvest Moon so special. My husband and I were so well attended to all night, they even packed us a late night snack on our way out! They went above and beyond both in flavor and personal attention, and you will not regret using them!

Cristina Webster, my event planner, was AMAZING. After our first phone call, I took a huge sigh of relief because I knew everything would be okay as long as she was there. From the first moment we spoke, we hit the ground running with food planning and table setup. At our first face-to-face meeting, she was warm and professional, and had everything planned out. She was extremely flexible and willing to work with me on small changes as the big day grew closer. The food she selected was absolutely phenomenal, and the wait staff was extremely professional and attentive to all our needs. I cannot say enough about Cristina or the company, and I've recommended them to a number of people. My big day was perfect, in large part to Cristina and her team. Thank you all so much for making this a memorable, wonderful, amazing experience. <3

It was so easy to work with Harvest Moon in the planning stages and day-of. The team readily accommodated our requests for seasonal, local and sustainable food and a feature a few Indian recipes; and to have a zero-waste event. They were meticulous in tracking all the moving parts needed for the set-up and execution of the night.
The appetizers and dinner were great --- we heard a lot of talk about the pork in particular! The staff were fantastic; they kept everything running like clockwork and were helpful and friendly. Bartender got several shout-outs for the Cider Smash sig cocktail and anticipating people's requests after their first order.

Harvest Moon was fantastic. We asked for non-traditional stations that were executed perfectly, and they even used a couple of family recipes! Cristina was also great to work with and was definitely a saving grace during the few weeks before the event.

Our wedding was a semi-formal event for 200 persons. Harvest Moon was SUPERB. The organization and planning leading into our event covered every contingency. Menu's allowed flexibility to our taste and style. Presentation was gorgeous and the attention to detail was 5 star. The most impressive aspect of Harvest Moon is their people. The staff has a 100% customer oriented mentality and is willing to do whatever is needed, even in the middle of the party. The reception was a success largely in part due to our choice of caterer and we were able to enjoy it (with no need to micromanage anything) because we had hired a caterer that had our full trust. A week later, as the compliments come streaming in, it is clear that our trust was clearly well placed.

We could not be happier with Harvest Moon Catering - they worked with us to create a vision for our wedding within our budget and were largely responsible for expertly executing that vision. The food was phenomenal, their help with coordination and decor was key to the event's success, and their attention to detail was impressive. They went the extra mile to make sure everything went as planned and provided a lot of lovely little extras that made us feel pampered. They were by far the best vendor we used in our wedding and I would recommend them in a heartbeat.

Harvest Moon was absolutely flawless at our wedding. The food was beyond amazing, it was simply on another level. They treated my guests like their own family members, and made everyone feel wonderful during the event. They were one of the best parts of our wedding, and I can't even imagine having selected a different caterer. We would highly recommend them to anyone that wants the best food possible at their wedding!

I originally picked Harvest Moon based on how easy they were to communicate with over phone/email and how efficient they were in converting my ideas into a proposal, complete with personalized estimate and Menu. That easy going, helpful, pleasant, efficient nature carried through with everyone I worked with over the last year and with everyone I met on the actual day. All of the servers and bartenders and kitchen staff and just EVERYONE were excellent. We had so many compliments at just how great and how friendly the Harvest Moon staff was and how phenomenal the food was. I really can't thank them enough! They are really just the best and went far above and beyond for us!!!
