See what’s new with John Michael

The Night It Snowed In Orlando

Not too long ago Rene and Robert worked with our John Michael Exquisite Events and Catering team for both the planning and catering for their wedding at the Orange County Regional History Center.

This unique downtown Orlando wedding venue, a Smithsonian affiliate, is the collector and curator of Central Florida’s history, including an historic 1927 courtroom where Rene and Robert hosted their wedding ceremony.

Rene and Robert’s Diamond package included Snap Out Loud Photography and Perfect Sky Productions videography to document their beautiful day.

Prior to exchanging vows, Rene and Robert had their First Look on the History Center’s beautiful grand staircase and later spent some time together wandering through the historic exhibits.


Rene and Robert included fun, interesting details into their wedding: custom buttons, a sign-in board, and guide map for guests were designed in a winter theme with a snowy custom illustration of the couple.

The couple carried the snowy winter theme throughout the wedding in shades of purple, soft snowy up lighting, winter themed centerpieces, and continued it into their crystalline wedding cake and cupcakes.

Guests enjoyed a reception that began with the couple’s first dance, a plated John Michael House Salad made of organic spring mix, caramelized walnuts and a raspberry vinaigrette, along with fresh baked Rosemary garlic, honey wheat and plain yeast rolls.

The first course was followed by a delicious buffet featuring Pan Seared Chicken Breast  with a Mushroom Marsala Sauce; Cheese Tortellini with a Florentine Alfredo Sauce, and Pernil, our  Latin-inspired pork shoulder rubbed with a citrus adobo seasoning and baked to perfection.  The entrées were served with sides of sweet BBQ sauce, pomerey mustard and jalapeno lime butter and were paired with garlic mashed potatoes and honey glazed carrots with basil and pine nuts.

The evening continued with Rene surprising Robert with a trip to New York City. A jam-packed dance floor, delicious wedding cake and a very unique and interesting lip sync competition topped off the evening’s events.

Congratulations Rene and Robert We wish you continued happiness and are thrilled you trusted John Michael Exquisite Events and Catering for your big day!
