We narrowed down our caterer between John Michael's and one other caterer. We ended up going with the other caterer although my experience with John Michael's was positive and the price was comparable there ended up just being slightly more value in going with someone else otherwise I am confident this company would have done a great job.

We decided to book John Michael after going to one of the tastings - it was so delicious!!! On our wedding day the staff was SO great - they made sure my husband and I were hydrated and had plenty of snacks as we were taking pictures. As we thanked each table for attending, every single guest kept raving about the delicious food! The staff was also nice enough to make sure we had plenty of leftovers to take home with us! The entire staff was so professional and the weeks leading up to the wedding, everyone was so responsive by email/telephone with the last minute questions and changes we had. Top notch service - thank you so much!!!

I could write a novel about how great John Michael was for my wedding, but I will keep it very simple-I couldn't have pulled off my wedding without them!!!! I had 60 days to plan my wedding, so I needed someone like John Michael on my side. They more than delivered! I used their all inclusive Diamond Package, and it was the best choice I've ever made. It made planning and coordinating so easy. Not to mention the price was unbeatable!!! They were so professional and organized. They made planning my wedding a breeze. Also, the food was AMAZING!!! Every guest was on a hunt for more food once they got their first plates. It was delicious. I couldn't wait to eat my to-go plate the day after my wedding. If I could, I would have a wedding every year and have John Michael plan it all. Don't choose anyone else to plan your wedding!!!

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!

I am writing this because of the excellent job “John Michael Wedding & Special Events” did on my Daughter’s Wedding Ceremony & Wedding Reception which was held October 2016. The Wedding Ceremony and Reception was beautiful thanks to Charlene of John Michael Wedding & Special Events. As I write this I am still receiving calls from Family and Friends on what a wonderful time they had, how elegant the reception was and the excellent food. Everyone stayed on the dance floor. All this was possible due to Charlene and her execution of John Michael’s “Diamond Wedding Package”. The “Diamond Wedding Package” took care of the wedding planning, wedding rehearsal coordination, coordination day of wedding, catering services, cake, DJ, lighting, flowers, photography, video and limo. All the Bride & Groom had to do was show up and let Charlene do what she does best of which she did an EXCELLENT job. The wedding ceremony went smooth and flawless. I know this was due to Charlene’s expertise in coordinating the ceremony rehearsal which showed the day of the wedding ceremony. Charlene tended to the Bride & Groom from the planning stage, coordinating the wedding rehearsal, coordinating the wedding ceremony, overseeing the wedding reception and simultaneously giving the Bride & Groom her undivided attention.

During the Reception Joel came around several times to make sure everything was okay. Thank you Joel. The waiters & waitresses were exceptional. A special thanks to one of the waiters Julio. Julio went the extra step tending to my Daughter’s Grandmother. Several family members informed me on Julio’s attentiveness and kindness during the cocktail hour & during dinner. The team of John Michael Wedding & Special Events was responsive, professional, patient, kind and fun. I highly recommend John Michael Wedding & Special Events.

Michael rescued our wedding after my wedding planner shut up shop! Being a uk bride it was a daunting experience as I'd never been to the places we booked or met any vendors. Michael responded promptly and expertly to all my e mails no matter how many questions I asked! He did a fab job of organising everything exactly the way I wanted it to be, everything was smooth, relaxed and timed without being rushed. On the day I was shocked by just how beautiful everything was, even my flowers and cake. Michael was there running the show and along with our dj, the photographer and the reverend Glynn it made the day all the more fun and enjoyable. I honestly can't thank or recommend them enough, in fact I'm sad I don't need to communicate with them anymore! Thanks again, best wishes Gemma & James Redford xx
