Wow... Just, wow! How can I even begin to describe how incredibly wonderful it was to work with April Muniz and the whole Harvest Moon Catering crew? Planning a wedding from overseas with no professional wedding planner was difficult, to say the least. But, April was the perfect one for the job. From first email contact, to tasting day, to a million questions via email and Skype, to the day-of goddess with a crew of super heroes and out-of-this-world food, we couldn't have asked for more and Read More

April with Harvest Moon is a magician. She took my decor supplies, ideas, and appetite and turned it into the wedding of my dreams. We first met her at our tasting with Harvest Moon, where she helped put together a menu for us. Harvest Moon was really accommodating for people's allergies and tastes, and at the end of the day the food tasted amazing. Almost all of our guests commented on how much they loved the food. We decided to have Harvest Moon do a dessert table instead of a cake, and Read More

Harvest Moon was the epitome of professional while remaining flexible to my fiance and my requests and ideas. The food was delicious and the catering staff were so kind and helpful. Working with Kelly from Harvest Moon was great. She had insightful suggestions and her organization blew me away. She helped tie everything from our ceremony chair arrangement down to the napkins and the itinerary for the night.

Harvest Moon was great to work with. We had total say over what we wanted and everything was delicious. Many people said it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding. They also will make fantastic meals for kids, vegetarians, and vegans and for people who are gluten free or have allergies which was great because sometimes those meals seem like an after thought but these were delicious! They set everything up beautifully and did a lot more than what I expected! I would (and have to many Read More

Harvest Moon is simply wonderful! From the phenomenal food to the seamless planning and beautiful reception set-up, we could not have asked for more from a caterer. Kelly Mahanes, our event coordinator, walked us through each step of the process with great attention to detail—she was always helpful, friendly, and quick to respond to questions, even up to the last minute. HM matched our style perfectly, creating a simple, delicious menu focused on local, seasonal food with a slightly Southern Read More
