  • Florentine Gardens and their whole team has my highest recommendation! The service, their work ethic, the atmosphere, everything went exactly how I wanted it too and planned for. Planning a wedding during COVID has many challenges, but the team at Florentine made sure to accommodate myself, my husband and my guests to the best of their ability. I personally planned with Jason and he seemed to be available 24/7 with all of my questions and made anything I wanted, happen. He was professional but kind and understanding. I hired Sal Travis entertainment for my video and worked very closely with Sal and Shar. Sal is definitely experienced and knew the lay of the land and what would work and what wouldn't, Shar was outstanding, she made us feel comfortable and we received our wrap up video before we woke up the next day. I am confident in her ability and know she captured the best moments. My bridal attending, Sheyla was our life savor!! She was with me every step of the day, my husband and ... Read more

  • We can't thank Florentine enough for helping us have the wedding of our dreams!! We would recommend The Estate at Florentine Gardens to anyone! My husband and I were married on September 27, 2020. Denise and her team made sure our day was absolutely perfect. Our cocktail hour and reception were both outside under the gorgeous tent space. One of the main reasons we chose Florentine Gardens was for the beautiful outdoor space and elegant feel of the grounds. Our guests were able to enjoy the beauty of the estate from the cocktail hour all the way to the outdoor after-party. The food was amazing and very abundant! Denise was our wedding consultant and was by our side for the entire wedding process. She is seriously the best around! Denise was so informative and so easy to talk to. She answered all of our questions and eased all of our worries. She helped us with decisions big and small, from making our cocktail hour and dinner selections, to helping us through the difficult...

  • We recently had our daughter's wedding at The Estate at Florentine Gardens. We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful venue. From start to finish, everything was perfect. We are still receiving compliments from our guests as to how delicious the food was and what great service they received. Maria was wonderful throughout the planning. She was helpful and patient and took care of every detail. Sal arranged for the entertainment, and he was just wonderful to work with. DJ Tony Gia was great, and I would also highly recommend Shar, the videographer. My daughter's bridal attendant, Sheyla, was so helpful and attentive throughout the entire day. Perfection is the way I can describe Florentine Gardens!

  • All I can say is AMAZING!!!!! My husband and I unfortunately had to navigate planning a wedding during COVID which left us with many changes and uncertainty. Going through this process solidified and made me even happier that I chose to get married at Florentine. We booked our June 2020 date two years ago with Maria, and she didn't ever leave our side throughout the process - ups and downs. Emotions were definitely at their high in the beginning of COVID on all ends, but that never interfered with them doing anything and everything that they could to make our dream wedding possible. After a few different date changes, we finally had our wedding this past Saturday 10/17. The whole day from beginning to end was more than I could have ever asked or hoped for. Our guests are still calling and texting myself, my husband, and our parents to tell us that it was the best wedding they ever been to. Florentine went above and beyond with all of the health and safety measures needed to take place ... Read more

  • Florentine did an amazing job with our wedding, the staff and especially the bridal attendant Kerry worked above and beyond for us to make our day so special. Florentine Gardens is so beautiful, the food is delicious and staff is so professional. I want to shout to to Sal Travis for making the entertainment out of this world, our guest are still talking about how it was the best wedding they have been to. We had to postpone our wedding and they worked with us and they have turned a sour situation into such a beautiful, safe wedding. We definitely recommend Florentine Gardens, they are the best, luxurious venue!

  • My wedding day was an absolute dream thanks to all of the staff at the Florentine Gardens. First off I will say that the venue it self is absolutely breathtaking, pictures do it no justice - if you’re considering the gardens for your wedding, please go see the enormous chandeliers, floor to ceiling windows and beautiful gardens for yourself, you will not be disappointed! Secondly, the food is phenomenal. Our guests raved about the abundance and quality of food at the cocktail hour. I was told by numerous guests that is was the best food they had ever had at a wedding. The staff even went around after dinner and asked if anyone wanted seconds! The lights and ceremony music provided by Sal Travis brought our party to life. I couldn’t imagine having our wedding without those two components. To say the least, the staff was extremely accommodating, professional and committed to making our day as perfect and stress free as possible. The months leading up to the wedding were as every b...

  • The Estate at Florentine Gardens in River Vale NJ ‘knocked it out of the park’ for our 10.22.20 Wedding. Firstly, A big Thank You to the Owner, Tom Daidone, for meeting with us two years ago & showing us his beautiful venue, himself. The Estate speaks for itself as always, everything from the chandeliers to the bridal suites.. but Tom’s family values & the amount of pure kindness when inviting us to the ‘vendor showcase’ the following day.. paired together in a way that we could not find hospitality close to his anywhere else, if we tried. Thank you Tom, for supplying NJ with The Best Wedding Venue a Newlywed Couple could dream to have. I also want to thank Tom for introducing us to the most monumental of human-beings on this planet, our Wedding Coordinator, Denise Downing. Denise, we are over-the-moon. You my dear, are a true queen. Chris & I are so lucky to have met you, because our wedding would not have been complete without your attention to detail, disney/fairytale know... Read more

  • Amazing is all I have to say! There is not even one bad thing that I have to say about Florentine Gardens. From the beginning, Maria was so helpful with everything and answered any questions that I had. Our original wedding date was supposed to be May 16th, but unfortunately 2020 had other plans. Luckily, we were able to reschedule for September 19th and they put so much work into making it absolutely beautiful for us! Because we were afraid our guests might not be comfortable being inside, we had our reception in their beautiful tent outside. For entertainment we decided to use Sal Travis, who was a pleasure to work with. He made us feel very comfortable that everything would be perfect. We ended up getting our DJ, photobooth, and video through him for a very reasonable price. DJ Tony Gia was great, he really knows how to get the party started! The photobooth was so much fun for my guests ( I wish I had more time in there as well!). The videographers were phenomenal, they captured ... Read more

  • My husband and I got married at the Florentine Gardens last Saturday and we are still on cloud nine! We really could not be any happier with our wedding day and the process leading up to it. Ever since our first visit at the estate, we knew we were going to be in good hands and that it was going to be very special. We were not wrong! First, I just want to say how SPECTACULAR the Florentine Gardens looks. When we booked our date we knew that they were going to be doing some renovations and that we would be one of the first weddings in the new ballroom. Maria and Ciro made us feel very confident that the room would be finished in time and Ciro even took the time to talk to my dad who works in construction! Of course, we knew that it would be beautiful, but it was beyond anything we had imagined. Our guests are still telling us how gorgeous and elegant it was. Next, I have to mention how professional, attentive, and kind all the staff were. Maria, Ciro, Samantha, and Jorge were gre... Read more

  • The Estate at Florentine Gardens- 5 out of 5 stars! The venue’s beauty speaks for itself. The grounds are immaculate and the ballroom is literally breathtaking. Being a covid bride I had to deal with many setbacks, disappointments, and rules constantly changing. I worked with Denise at Florentine and she made the process so much more bearable. She kept us updated on the ever changing guidelines and how Florentine was going above and beyond. Our original early summer date was cancelled due to Covid, but we chose to reschedule for early Fall. Luckily we had the most perfect weather and our pictures on the grounds are simply perfect. I had access to the bridal suite all day and they took care of my entire bridal party. The family at Florentine makes your day go forth without a hiccup- a few days before the wedding I dropped off all of my “day of details” with labels of where I wanted them- they were perfectly placed and then perfectly packed up for us at the end of the evening,...

  • 10 years ago, I attended my cousin's wedding at Florentine Gardens and always wished that someday I would be able to have my special day here, at this AMAZING venue. Well now, 10 years later, that wish finally came true! From the food and service to atmosphere and ambience, Florentine has it all! They really treat every couple they work with like family! Our consultant, Jason, was the sweetest to work with. Although we hit a couple of bumpy roads to get to our dream day during this pandemic, Jason was with us every step of the way with help, comfort and support to get us through this tough year. For videography, look no further! Sal Travis, Shar and the team were absolutely amazing! Our guests were raving about our wrap up video for days! Their work is truly spectacular! My bridal attendant, Layla, was phenomenal and did not leave my side the entire day! She literally did everything possible to make our day perfect! I've attended many wedding venues in the past throughout NJ and none e... Read more

  • Maria (and the whole team at Florentine) When we first found out we would need to postpone our wedding that we booked TWENTY SEVEN months ago, I’m not gonna lie I was pretty depressed. This day we had planned in our heads for over two years was gone. For me it was way longer than the 27 months. I knew in 2015 at my cousins wedding at Florentine that this would be my wedding venue. When we got engaged 2 years later, Tom asked me “what venues do you want to look at?” I looked at him and said “venue and Florentine gardens. We’re booking there no matter what.” You were the only venue we looked at. We didn’t need to look anywhere else. Tom being Tom didn’t really remember the venue like I did but once we met with Maria we knew this would be the place we would celebrate and start our marriage. As everyone knows, this did not go as we had planned. However, after meeting with you and your dad today and booking our new date, we are just as happy and excited as we were... Read more

  • The Estate at Florentine Gardens was completely beautiful, from the moment we arrived to every inch of the estate was just simply beautiful. I love that the venue only host one wedding at a time to give you complete privacy, with plenty of time and space to enjoy your special day. If your are looking to book this venue, your best bet is to do so as early as possible. We were so in awe of this beautiful venue, but completely let down because they didn't have any of our dates available.
