  • We hired Harvest Moon for our Charlottesville wedding in January 2020, and it could not have been a better experience. Sally was a pleasure to work with, and the food was absolutely amazing! Many of our guests came up to us during the wedding to comment on how great the food was. Harvest Moon was also incredibly attentive to details, and made every effort to ensure allergies and food sensitivities would be taken care of. We couldn't have asked for better catering!

  • We hired HMC for our September 2020 wedding. Planning a wedding through a pandemic was so challenging, but the team at HMC was so flexible and accommodating to our rapidly changing guest list. Kristi and Mark were fantastic to work. The food was over the top amazing and the steps that they implemented to help keep our guests safe during the reception were fantastic. I wouldn't think twice about booking them again for any future events.

    Hi Meredith, Thank you for the awesome review. We cannot tell you how great it was to find the balance between guest and staff safety and still having an amazing time at your wedding. Together I think we both found how this can be done and allow the most important moments in life to go forward. We wish you and Brad the best and hope you continue to enjoy life so thoroughly.

  • Harvest Moon Catering is way more than just a caterer. Working with them was quite possibly one of the best decisions I made in the wedding planning process! Not only was the food beyond incredible, but they were extremely accommodating to my food allergies. Between our initial conversation with Cristina to our daily conversations with Allison, there was never a moment where I felt stressed or unsure of the catering part of the wedding. I did not lift a finger for the rehearsal dinner or the day of the wedding and I know it was because of the amazing staff and Allison as our coordinator. They worked with us and our budget, our suggestions for the bar and gave us the most incredible service for our reception. Thank you HMC for helping our wedding go off flawlessly and giving us the best coordinator ever, Allison!

  • Working with Harvest Moon was the best decision we made for our wedding. They were so incredibly easy to work with, responsive, and flexible--and the food was amazing. We had some difficulties with our primary wedding planner and made several last minute and major changes, including (two weeks before the wedding) deciding to have Harvest Moon provide alcohol rather than working with our wedding planner to purchase it ourselves. That required major changes on Harvest Moon's part, and they were quick, efficient, communicative, and professional throughout what could have been a chaotic time. Everything went off perfectly thanks to them. We thought about going with a slightly cheaper and less established company for our caterer. While I can't speak to what that experience would have been, I can say that we were so grateful to have Harvest Moon's expertise and incredible operation behind us for the wedding. We had total confidence in them and it was wonderful to be able to n... Read more

  • I was so impressed working with this team. Not only was their execution flawless, but Cristina and Alison were proactive and strategic in helping me accomplish my vision, while also being cognizant of my budget. It was always a 1+1=3 equation when I had a call with them. They understood what I wanted, and used their experience and expertise to provide ideas and solutions I never would have thought of. The food is AMAZING. I set my bar pretty low for wedding food, so assumed this was just overpriced wedding industry stuff. No - this food is AWESOME. My husband was being very frugal when doing menu selections. But when we did our tasting, he kept yessing things without asking the prices because we just wanted all our friends and family to share in the deliciousness we just got to taste! The bonus with HM is that they handle all the rentals - it's totally hassle free. Lastly, they are more than just caterers. They basically trumped my wedding planner in most instances. Cristina and A... Read more

  • The one thing you do not want to be known for is the wedding with the bad food. Well if you choose Harvest Moon, I promise you will not have to worry about that. They have many options for every diet and taste, and all of them are incredible. They are super helpful in choosing the menu and were very professional.

  • HMC is no-brainer pick for a wedding caterer. My mother and stepfather had used HMC for their wedding a couple years earlier as well, where they served only appetizers (tons of them). When it was my turn, my husband and I considered only 1 other caterer, but easily selected HMC as they were the easiest and most flexible to work with to make our vision come true. We also used HMC for our lunch at King Family Vineyards (as the wedding party were there a couple hours before cocktail hour started in order to take photos), to rent additional décor, create our custom bride/groom-only wedding cake, and our takeaway gifts (to-go cookies as the guests got back on the bus), as well as to provide the wedding day-of planner. Their expertise was extremely helpful. We worked mostly with Natalie who was the absolute best - she was so professional and so friendly that we felt like we had one of our closest friends working behind the scenes at our wedding to make our vision come to life perfect.

  • We had a wonderful experience working with Harvest Moon! Everyone on their staff is SO kind and SO helpful. Want to especially thank Mark and Kristi who took care of us the whole way through. They were so fun to work with! From initial conversations to the tasting to the big day - they made it all seamless. They were able to take our ideas and turn them into reality - and honestly it all turned out way better than we could have even imagined! They thought about every single detail and they were so organized throughout the entire process. And everyone raved about our food as well! I would work with them again in a heartbeat!!!!

  • A review will follow, so if you are just scanning through reviews, know that you should stop your search for a caterer and hire Harvest moon. They are absolutely the best. Living in Charlottesville, I had been to many events that had been catered by Harvest Moon such as the CBIC Gala. When it came time to choose a caterer for our wedding, our wedding planner suggested Harvest Moon. Fortunately, that same day, I was at a Cville Climate Council meeting and sat next to Mark Hahn, President of Harvest Moon. It was a great first impression, seeing that they are passionate about better climate practices. We briefly chatted about how I would like to include traditional Persian dishes at my wedding, an option that many Charlottesville caterers would be unable to provide. Mark directed me to planner, Cristina and chef, Bryan, two of the most wonderful people you will ever meet. Cristina knew everything about everything and Bryan is not only a chef, but also a wizard. They held multiple tasti... Read more

  • Harvest Moon was recommended through my venue my then fiancé and I decided to make an appointment for a tasting. The service at the tasting was beyond excellent. The portions were large, the food delicious, and Sally sat with us the whole time taking notes on what we liked and did not like. We went to a couple of other tastings at other places and the service was nothing compared to Harvest Moon's service! Sally was very accommodating and let us do a second tasting while we were trying to refine our menu more. Once again the attention to detail and service were excellent! So far we have received excellent reviews from our wedding guests on the quality of the food! Everyone has said the food was really good! I am very happy we went with Harvest Moon!

  • We LOVED Natalie and the Harvest Moon catering team we worked with! They were such an integral part of our wedding day. Right after our tasting, we knew they were the ones. Their tasting was so professional, and even then they went above and beyond by recreating my favorite dessert from a D.C. bakery. Throughout the planning process, they made everything so EASY - the menu options they presented were already amazing, plus they were super flexible to try anything not on their menu. Best examples: late night breakfast tacos and honey butter chicken biscuits (some staples from my hometown in Texas), a boozy milkshake cocktail in lieu of a groom's cake. We liked that they had their rentals in-house (one less vendor to hire!). The bar service was also incredible - they absolutely nailed our signature cocktails (they were so good they were dangerous). Service was really professional and we felt like VIPs all night. Prices seemed to be on par with other caterers in the area, and we defini... Read more

  • We found Harvest Moon in the middle of the pandemic when we had to reschedule and downsize our wedding. I worked with Allison from the beginning and she was amazing - she was responsive, flexible, offered a ton of suggestions and worked with their Chef to create a personalized menu based on food selections that we loved. Harvest Moon allowed us to have a complimentary tasting BEFORE we booked them, which a lot of other caterers don't do. The tasting was amazing and helped to solidify our choice that they were going to be a perfect choice for our wedding. Allison helped us with equipment as well - which made our rentals so easy. They do tables, chairs, linens, plates and silverware. It was truly a one-stop-shop!!! On our wedding day, the staff all showed up on time, they were so professional and kind to our guests, and the service was perfectly on time. We were so happy with Harvest Moon and so happy that we found them for our wedding!!

  • My wife and I were extremely happy with Harvest Moon! The food was totally delicious, which was confirmed by countless compliments from guests. Every step of the way Harvest Moon was responsive, flexible, and detail-oriented at the level of detail we wanted (which, at times, was a very high level of detail!). They also worked well with us on some slightly unusual dietary requests we had. They are on the pricier side, but of course with catering you very much get what you pay for. We were impressed by how well the quality taste we enjoyed at our tasting carried over to a feast for 150 people. And on the day of our wedding, the staff were wonderful and highly accommodating. We felt completely taken care of and we could see how happy our guests were with the food and drinks. Overall: amazing food, extremely professional staff before, during, and after the event, and more than worth the price if this is the price range for you.
