Harvest Moon is simply amazing. We could not have had a better caterer for our wedding. Throughout the whole process their whole team was more than accommodating. Arie, Shane, Bennett and everybody else went way above and beyond their call of duty, helping with menu planning,... Read More logistics, and decisions. They got to know my fiance and I along the way and made sure our experience on our wedding day was personalized. Not only was the service impeccable, the food itself was to die for! People are still raving about it from our wedding on September 16th. We chose to do buffet style for dinner at the wedding. We had appetizers like lobster mac and cheese bites and goat cheese crostinis. Everything was fresh and delicious. We had multiple salads including a kale caesar. Our entrees were Atlantic Cod and New York strip steak. Both were cooked perfectly, juicy, and full of flavor. The people at Harvest Moon brought all of the food we ordered plus much more! They brought their fresh vegetables and any other foods that they had that complimented everything we ordered. The day of the wedding Arie helped to coordinate and even helped me to set up stuff on the tables that I was unable to get to. She found my husband and I to give us plates of appetizers while we were taking pictures. She really made sure we ate throughout the day and night and actually got to enjoy the food. I know I've already said it but people are still raving about how awesome the food was. I can't say enough that Harvest Moon exceeded all of our expectations for both food and service as our wedding caterer. I would recommend them to anyone planning a wedding in Maine!

AMAZING!! My husband and I used Harvest Moon for our wedding in Southwest Harbor, ME and could not recommend them enough. From beginning to end the entire staff was a pleasure to work with and helped us to make our day exactly how we had envisioned it. They food was absolutely...

We still get compliments from our guests saying that it was the best food and service they had ever had at a wedding and fun to get to watch the food being cooked on their grill. It brought a whole new layer of entertainment to the day! Thank you all so very much!

Every single thing about working with Harvest Moon was perfect. The staff are insanely helpful and knowledgeable. The food is well though out, delicious, and presented beautifully. We knew we wanted to serve local and organic food, and the menu had so many fabulous options. Same... Read More goes for the bar. It was great to have local Maine beer at our reception, and they worked with us to get our favorites. Our reception was untraditional in that it was a year after our wedding. And with that, we wanted something a little different for food. Something that worked with our vision for our party. Harvest Moon was recommended to me by a friend/former co-worker, and I’ll thank her forever for suggesting one of the best things about our reception!

Harvest Moon catered our wedding in September, and they were an awesome choice! The whole team was so helpful throughout the whole process - Arie and Shane were great with our initial discussions and planning. Shane spent over an hour on the phone with me on a weeknight just... Read More discussing menu options and explaining how they source and prepare their food. These guys are really passionate about their food and it shows! For our wedding day, Bennett and Christa headed up our team. They both worked so hard, but I have to shout out Christa especially who exchanged countless emails with me in the months leading up to our wedding and made sure every detail was perfect. On top of everything, the food was great! Our guests loved it, and it was so cool to have the grills and "open kitchen" added to our reception vibe. If you're looking for a hardworking team with some awesome, unique, and locally sourced food then Harvest Moon won't disappoint!
