Meet Our Team

Michelle D’Anna


Michelle grew up in the restaurant industry, and both her parents and grandparents owned and operated their own establishments. Going to college in Massachusetts and working in the hospitality industry, she became a maitre d’ in a wedding venue. It was there that she fell in love with coordinating the details of special events. In 1994, she launched her own company where she offers culinary delights, event planning, and creative design and décor. With many years of experience in all aspects of customer service, Michelle exceeds the expectations of her clients as she creates memorable experiences for weddings, corporate events, parties, and social occasions.

Anthony D’Anna


Anthony is the Executive Chef at Michelle’s Catering and Venue 622. He started his culinary expressions at a very young age under the mindful watch of his Sicilian grandparents. Here is where he learned his humble approach to creating magnificent culinary concepts. Grandma always said… “fresh and simple tastes the best!”. Anthony is often heard saying, “we all have and work with the freshest ingredients, but it’s most important what you do with them.” Although Anthony would describe himself as a self-taught home chef, his critics would completely disagree.
