We purchased a wedding package through Weddings, Inc. which was recently acquired by John Michael Weddings (referring to as JM from here on to save space). While there were many other vendors in the package, JM provided the catering for our event. Prior to the wedding, we worked closely with Michael Thomas -- the owner and founder of JM. We are a lesbian couple and it was important for us to work with an LGBT-friendly company. When we found out that Michael is a married gay man, we were just elated! It was easy and fun working out the details with Michael. JM provided catering, linens, chairs, plates, silverware, and glassware. There was a great selection of colors and styles to choose from, and we worked with Michael in the showroom neighboring their main office, so we were able to see how everything would look set up. Katie was our day-of coordinator and she was very attentive and sweet, and we were amazed with her efficiency. She was always one step ahead, and always working very hard to make everything perfect. Our guests (and us!) absolutely loved the staff, especially Mary who was our bartender. She is so sweet and funny and she seemed to really be enjoying herself. Some of our guests were hoping to dance with her! Dinner service was super quick. The food was absolutely excellent, of course. Our guests loved all of the offerings and we got great comments across the board. JM has tastings (I believe twice a year) at no additional cost to clients, to help with choices. You can also do a paid tasting if you miss the event. Standout offerings include their flounder, corn casserole, stuffed mushroom caps, and the best Caesar salad ever. The one non-positive comment we have is Sasha, one of the waitstaff, seemed super uninterested and in a bad mood. It did not have an adverse effect on the event, but several people noticed, myself included. It was not enough to dock even half a point from this wonderful company, so I rated 5 stars across the board!

We were very happy and glad that we had John Michaels cater for our wedding. Charlene was so amazing to work with, very friendly, answered all the questions I had, guided me along through the process, and super professional. I know they have a lot of clients, but she made me felt like I was the only client they have. They have free food tasting once every quarter of the year. I felt that their pricing are very reasonable! We went with the Silver package with a lot of add ons like full liquor bar setups that included bartenders, real glassware, iced tea service, mixed match china, bar fronts, charger upgrade, soup course, chimichurri upgrade, and additional one hour of service. Charlene was very helpful with the changes through out the planing and provided us with very straightforward pricing. They allowed us to provide our own alcohol and that is absolutely amazing! Not only that we save money, but we also able to provided quality brand without breaking the bank! They were also very flexible with our guest count changes and event last minutes food options changes. Thank you John Michael! Thank you Charlene!

On March 19, 2016 my husband and I received a fairy-tale, dream come true, exquisite GIFTED wedding at Celebration Gardens in Winter Park - owned and gifted in part largely by John Michael Events. This gift was a generous act of kindness that my husband and I will never forget. We could not have imagined the perfection in catering we were about to receive by John Michael Exquisite Weddings and Catering. John Michael and his team provided us with highly professional guidance and support during our planning stage. When you have so many decisions to make from vegetarians to meat eaters to linens and layout of their gorgeous outdoor venue (Celebration Gardens), things can get stressful. I was amazed at the response time when I had questions or concerns - not to mention gently being put at ease - . I honestly never felt so well cared for by any type of business. John Michael and team have an approach with customers that leaves you feeling like your wedding is the most important event in the world - that is how we felt. As catering goes, our hope was for everyone to simply eat well but instead we were all RAVING about the Food! At our wedding the food was even more delicious then we already thought it was during the 2 taste testing events we were invited to stunning Leu Gardens. My husband, 9 year old daughter and I couldn't have been happier when our meals were served. Yes, we actually ate at our own wedding! We did not want to miss out on that! Fiesta Chicken, Carved Flank Steak, fresh Seasonal Vegetables (we requested)...and much much more! A diverse menu to design your wedding (or any event for that matter) from and every item we chose was scrumptious! Our guests showered the catering with compliments during and after our wedding. I cannot tell you how many guests commented that this was the most fun they had at a wedding in a long time! This is what we hoped for. We wanted everyone to have a great time and we all did! No disappointment whatsoever - just incredible! As for the service during our wedding, the staff were nothing but smiles! They were organized, upbeat, fully engaged with us and our guests, friendly and accommodating - this holds true for the wait staff and the bartender! All very hard working and well experienced from our point of view. A very smooth operation without any glitches and the best service ever! I love all of the staff at John Michael's. They are all extremely fine people and professionals. We had a gorgeous, sweet, romantic, amazing wedding made possible by this generous gift! Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts to John Michael for his generosity and giving to Dale and Gary...a couple whom the Winter Park community chose to gift this surprise wedding to. To all of the Celebration Garden partners, Power Entertainment and Art Faulkner Photography a heartfelt thank you for all that you did for us. Go to Gary Lambert Salon, Winter Park Florist and Cakes By Design for more reviews on our gifted wedding in the upcoming days. My husband and I Highly Recommend - John Michael Exquisite Weddings and Catering - to anyone planning an event. We had a wedding to remember and pictures to prove it. We plan on sharing those pics with John Michael and Celebration Gardens and allowing them to post any of their choosing to showcase their venue. Best Wishes Everyone, Dale and Gary's Gifted Wedding

My guests are still talking about how delicious the food from John Michael was! We had a buffet style and attended 2 different tastings to choose the best items for our menu. They were very helpful with gluten free and vegetarian options during planning. The staff was very friendly throughout the planning process and at the reception. I highly recommend this company!

We are so happy we chose JM to work with. Their food was phenomenal and there were so many choices! We got rave reviews from a number of our wedding guests and would DEFINITELY work with them again if there are any catering needs. The staff was so helpful and wonderful every step of the way, made things very easy for me. They were very accommodating in adjusting the contract to fit my needs and were very prompt in communicating. They are fabulous!!!

John Michael's Catering was the best thing we did for our wedding day!! Michael's team allowed us to have the incredible, flawless, stress free wedding we were dreaming about. Our guests could not say enough about how good the food and service were! No matter what questions we had leading up to the big day, Michael was always a quick email or phone call away and usually responded within 10 minutes. If you want the best of the best at a price you can afford call John Michael's!!

I find myself to be quite particular when it comes to service having worked in hotels for many years now. Everyone was extremely friendly and accommodating during the planning process and the tasting. The service at the wedding exceeded my every expectation by every single person working!!! It was as if they were all there with the very intention to make your day perfect. There were many compliments on the food from all of the guests! They made us a to-go box so when I finally tasted the food several hours after the wedding, it was still so delicious! I would recommend this company to anyone planning any kind of event!

John Michael catered our wedding. Everything was great, the staff was very accommodating. We are sad that we missed the cocktail hour as we only got to try one hors doeuvre but the staff packed us a to go plate of them. They also packaged left over plates and all the cake that was left. I was really impressed, they were very polite and helpful, even helping us put the left over liquor in our cars.

We are so glad that we chose John Michael and his team to cater our wedding. You can expect top of the line service, friendly staff, delicious food, in a word... perfection. From the minute that we received our initial quote to the night of our reception, John Michael and his team went the extra mile to make sure our wedding was an event that we will never forget. The food was absolutely delicious, our guests loved it. Absolutely recommended! :) Sandra and Wade Spires.

John Michael Wedding and Events were the perfect caterers for our wedding day. Their selections from appetizers through sweets offered something for everyone. The food was delicious and the service was great. If you experience one of their tastings and/or decide to book them as your caterer, please please please try the mashed potato bar - you won't regret it. It was a winner at our cocktail hour!

All service businesses should run like John Michael Weddings & Special Events. They helped coordinate and catered my ceremony, and I honestly can't think of a single bad thing to say. The service was perfect - every single person, from the coordinator to the staff at the reception, was amazingly polite and helpful. Beyond that, the food was excellent, unlike so much wedding food. All in all, I can't recommend John Michael highly enough.
