A Wonderful Tea Party

This past week our John Michael Exquisite Weddings and Catering team went down the rabbit hole and got to be part of an Alice In Wonderland themed event at Celebration Gardens in Winter Park.

The beautiful Celebration Gardens was the perfect location to host this event for the Central Florida Wedding Guild. Wedding professionals from across the region had an awesome time at this uniquely themed event.

Fun, unique decorations that crisscrossed the property really set the stage and our John Michael Exquisite Weddings and Catering  team members jumped in and played their part.

Our servers dressed in cute costumes to greet guests and serve butler passed hors d’oeuvres and our catering team selected foods that worked perfectly with the party’s theme.
