About Us


John Michael Weddings and Special Events has been creating perfect events for over 17 years.  John Michael is owned by Michael Thomas.  Michael personally meets and does all planning with our clients.  We limit the number of events we do in any one day to three.  This allows us to make sure we are giving you the best possible service and food quality.  We are a Green Caterer – using only organic foods in what we cook, using recyclable or bio-degradable disposables and implementing recycling and energy saving programs into our operations. 

John Michael has catered for such clients as:  AT & T, Channel 13 News, Donny Osmond, Jerry Seinfeld, Florida Power, Walt Disney World, Kraft Foods, Merrill Lynch and Saks Fifth Avenue.  John Michael is a preferred caterer at such facilities as:  Harry P. Leu Gardens, Haines City Lake Eva Banquet Hall, Buena Vista Water Sports and Orlando Museum of Art.

Our Executive Chef – Zach Steward, is a young and very inspirational culinary artist.  He is always on the cutting edge of the most recent food trends.  He has won several awards and accolades such as:  Taste of Winter Park, Taste of Thornton Park, Chef’s Annual Cookoff and is a ServSafe Certified Chef. 

Let your next event be a “John Michael Experience”.

We are a same sex couple and they made us and our guests feel so comfortable. They are a gay owned company, so this was no surprise. The food was amazing and our guests are still complimenting the food and saying "it was the best wedding food we ever ha
