A Marvel(ous) Wedding

Ryan and Daniel worked with our John Michael Exquisite Weddings and Catering team for their Leu Gardens wedding, including both catering and wedding day coordination.

Their beautiful wedding was designed using a navy blue and charcoal color story.  It was truly beautiful and really reflected the personalities of the two grooms.

The grooms looked very handsome in navy blue long sleeve shirts with charcoal vests. They each wore a uniquely patterned bow tie and a boutonniere of white ranunculus.

The late afternoon outdoor wedding ceremony incorporated a wine ceremony and the grooms were surrounded with sixty family members and friends as they exchanged their wedding vows.

The ceremony was followed by a cocktail reception on the verandah that was dotted with bistro tables with navy linen. Guests enjoyed soft drinks, beer and wine along with a selection of butler passed hors d’oeuvres.

Mini Corn Muffins with Piped Honey Butter

Feta and Sundried Tomato Crisps

Bacon Wrapped Dates

Inside the Camelia Room, preparations were under way for the buffet dinner reception and an evening of dancing.

Guest tables were set with navy tablecloths and grey napkins in a cummerbund fold.  Tiles of wine corks held the Walt Disney World themed table names and were surrounded by flickering candles. Chairs covered with white covers and charcoal sashes completed the look.

After the couple’s first dance and a few toasts everyone enjoyed a dinner buffet that included:

Salad John Michael

Cheese Tortellini with Spinach Alfredo Cream Sauce

Lemon Chicken

Broccoli and Cheese Casserole

Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Chef Carved Flank Steak with Chimichurri Sauce, Pomerey Mustard and Horseradish Cream

With advance notice from the couple, our John Michael Exquisite Wedding and Catering culinary team also prepared a plated vegan dinner for one of their guests. They enjoyed a delicious entrée including Tempeh Steak Medallions topped with Roasted Vegetable Ratatouille.

After dinner, guests were treated to our John Michael Exquisite Weddings and Catering Popcorn Bar. The grooms chose Orange Cream, Mimosa and Blueberry Cheesecake for their flavor selections.  Our team handled all of the bags, scoops, popcorn display décor and set up.

One of our favorite details of the day was this adorable Marvel superhero inspired wedding cake in mandarin orange and guava amaretto flavors. The amazing three-tiered wedding cake featured six of the groom’s favorite characters.

Congratulations Daniel and Ryan!

Thank you to Giselle and Brian from our John Michael Exquisite Weddings and Catering team for wedding coordination.
