  • Florentine Gardens is not only an absolutely gorgeous venue, it is especially a great place to have your event because of its people and the quality of their service. We worked with Jason Gentile who was excellent!! George and Lailah took care of every detail to ensure every ran smoothly and our day was as memorable.

  • The Florentine Gardens was the first venue we visited on our long list of venues we thought we’d go see— and quickly became the easiest decision to make. We met with Maria, the general manager, and her enthusiasm and sweet personality won us over immediately. Unlike other venues we visited after visiting the Florentine, Maria took her time helping us to envision what our wedding day would look like from top to bottom, from the minute our guests arrived to the minute they would leave. She showed us exactly what they and us would experience. This may seem like a no brainer - but other venues just didn’t give us the same experience. We walked out of the venue, both immediately feeling like it was where we were meant to get married.... and after visiting a few others, nothing compared. Throughout the wedding process, Maria continued to be attentive to our questions and requests. We truly felt like we were planning a wedding with a family member. Sal Travis, of Sal Travis enterta...

  • My husband and I had the best day of our lives on our wedding day (July, 19, 2019) and we owe it all to The Estate at Florentine Gardens. It truly felt like a magical, royal day! If you are looking for high class and elegance, we highly recommend hosting any type of event at Florentine Gardens, especially a wedding! We still have people raving that it was the best wedding they have ever been to and how amazingly delicious the food was and of course how much food there was. It was never ending! We couldn’t stop talking about how professional and magnificent the staff was. My husband and I worked side by side with Maria planning our entire wedding. She was so helpful and completely made us feel like we were family. She was one of the nicest people we have ever worked with! I can also say the same for Sal Travis of Sal Travis Entertainment. Sal was so down to earth and always available to answer all of our questions right away! The House Band was phenomenal and so was the videogra... Read more

  • From start to finish, working with The Florentine Gardens has been a dream! Every single person on their staff is super professional, kind and and the best at what they do. ALL of my guests said it was the best wedding they have ever been to! Working with Ciro for the year was amazing. I know they service many couples and clients, but he always treated us like our wedding was the most important thing going on. His suggestions for food selection and input on vendors was a huge help. Every interaction we had with him felt like working with a great friend and a true professional. He was crucial in making our wedding spectacular. Sal Travis and his entertainment team made my wedding so much fun! Transitions and flow of events were great and my guests were on the dance floor having fun immediately. His videographer, Evan, captured the best parts of our day and impressed guests by showing our wrap up video of our wedding at the end of the night. George, the Director of Operati... Read more

  • We don’t know where to begin! Our wedding at The Estate at Florentine Gardens was more perfect than we ever could have imagined. Working with Ciro for the year leading up to the wedding was so helpful, fun, personal and nothing short of amazing. He truly made us feel like our wedding was the only wedding he had on his mind when we talked with him in person, on the phone, or via email. Every question we asked, he not only answered but also went above and beyond to make sure our wedding was the greatest night of our lives. Everything we asked for was perfectly set up and we enjoyed having him be such a presence during our wedding night, even signing our guest book! Not only did he make sure to be such a presence, but every member of the team did, too. Sal Travis Entertainment kept our entire party on the dance floor the entire night, even when they took a break! Sal was so amazing to work with and it felt like we were talking to someone we knew for many years. Again, every question and... Read more

  • I already wrote a review for our wedding at the estate at Florentine Gardens but I want to write a special review the Sal Travis entertainment and the house band for putting together a well entertained and amazing wedding for us! If you decide to have your wedding at the Estate you must also book Sal Travis entertainment and his house band for your wedding entertainment because you will have a wedding like no other! What other weddings do you go to now that have bands instead of djs? Well Sal Travis Entertainment gives you both! But he’s not just a band and DJ he controls what they call it at the Estate, the theatrical package for the evening with lighting built into the walls and screens that come down from the ceilings! Who can forget the dancing in the clouds he created for our first dance as husband and wife! Our wedding was very unique, we wanted a mix of both cultures Italian and Spanish and Sal Travis was able to do this for us! Weeks and days leading up to the wedding Sal we... Read more

  • There are not enough words to describe how amazing this venue truly is. I get chills thinking out it!!! The grounds and venue are gorgeous, the food is like no other wedding I’ve ever been to in my life, the staff is wonderful, Jason, Jorge and Laila are AMAZING!!!! Laila made me so calm on my wedding day. There is not enough love and praise I could give her! She really is an angel on earth and I say that from the bottom of my heart!!! If you don’t believe me go to a showcase, you will truly be blown away!!! My family still talks about how amazing our wedding was from start to finish. It was the best date ever, it really was!!!!! PS- A family friend got engaged a few weeks before our wedding and her father was asking for brochures and information on the venue during our cocktail hour!!! He couldn’t wait!! That’s how amazing Florentine is!!!!

  • I am so glad that my husband and I had our wedding at the Estate at Florentine Gardens. My guests also loved their time there and raved about how this was probably the best venue they've ever been to! The staff, the food, the scenery are all so amazing. I barely had to decorate anything because the gardens are absolutely stunning. The flowers really do speak for themselves. The food is exquisite and the guests could not stop talking about it! Most importantly, the staff at The Estate at Florentine Gardens were exceptional! They were absolutely amazing. Maria made everything really easy for my husband and I. She was always responsive to any questions we had and she explained everything for every step of the way. Sal was so friendly and was probably the best MC for the wedding. The services provided for music and ambiance were also great. Jason was an excellent maitre d during the wedding day. The wedding day is such a hectic day for all to-be-wed couples but Jason made sure everything w... Read more

  • My husband and I visited 15 different wedding venues within the Northern NJ area and the moment we walked into Florentine Gardens (which was the last one) we were confident we had found the perfect place! The venue itself had everything we were looking for - indoor/outdoor cocktail hour complimented by a spacious and bright ballroom and gorgeous onsite gardens for pictures! Beyond the beautiful venue, we felt we were welcomed into a family and they were going to take care of every detail with their years of experience! Florentine Gardens did not disappoint! Working with Maria and Ciro during the planning process was effortless. Ciro guided us through their extensive menu options and was even able to help us build custom cocktail hour stations to fit with our cultures! The maitre d’, Jeff was attentive the entire night and ensured that everything ran smoothly between the band, our speeches, dances, etc. we also can’t forget our bridal attendant, Sheyla, who was there for us ...

  • My husband, Justin, and I looked at EVERY SINGLE wedding venue in Westchester and the surrounding areas. We were happy with a lot of them and kept saying we were maybe not picky enough. Everyone kept telling us that's because we hadn't found the right venue yet, we just figured it was because we would be happy anywhere. The LAST stop on our list was Florentine Gardens. My Dad had recommended it based on me saying that we were looking for a home-y place, versus a catering hall/wedding factory, and knowing my love of flowers! He had been there years ago for a retirement party. We knew our ceremony was going to be in the Bronx, so New Jersey seemed to be a stretch, in case of traffic, but we looked anyway. The MOMENT we walked in the door I knew I was done looking. Justin & I smiled ear to ear at each other every time we caught eyes, as Maria took us on a tour. I could tell by his face that he was done looking too! Maria was absolutely incredible from the first second she shook our ha... Read more

  • My wedding was a Sunday in June. This place is amazing, the staff over exceeded our expectations. All my guest raved about the service and how beautiful everything was. I am so glad I chose this place, everything felt so personalized. Maria is the absolute best!!! She is very quick to respond, and on top of everything, no detail will slip her mind. Laila was my Bridal attendant, she made sure everything was perfect, Extremely helpful, I could not thank her enough for making sure everything went smooth for me. Laila was everywhere at once, I don't how she does it, but I am forever grateful to the Estates Florentine Team!

  • Simply amazing. We looked at several venues around North Jersey and the Florentine took my breath away as soon as I saw it. Also, the staff is was the BEST OF THE BEST, and I TRULY mean that. The venue always has events and weddings happening, but they treat you as if your event is the only event of the year. Jason and Sal were simply phenomenal from day one of the planning process to after the wedding was finished. My bridal assistant, Sheyla, let’s just say I couldn’t have got through the reception without her. I forgot sandals..she got me a pair, I forgot an iPhone adapter that I was suppose to give to the band.. she found one, my hair started to fall out.. she fixed it!! I can not say enough great things about Sheyla! Finally, our video photographer, Evan— so talented and patient. He captured everything and the footage was absolutely beautiful. My husband and I couldn’t have been happier with everything!!!

  • I truly cannot express how amazing the Florentine Gardens is from the venue itself to the staff on the day. From the first call I had with Maria to the moment I left my wedding, they make you feel part of the family. I worked with Denise throughout my event and we couldn't have worked better as a team. She understood my vision perfectly and helped so much during the planning! I did not have an outside coordinator and she was so kind to help me with things I didn't know throughout planning. On the day of my wedding I worked with Jorge and Laila and they are the dream team. We also had the honor of meeting the chef! We hired Sal Travis and his team as well. Char put together the most perfect wrap up video and James had my guests dancing all night. I attended their vendor events and hired most of their recommended vendors and I am so glad they did. The Florentine Gardens staff are true professionals and they know the best in the business. My guests are still raving about the food, drinks ... Read more

  • Our July wedding at Florentine was wonderful. Reminiscent of old school weddings filled with tons of food and fun. Denise worked her hardest to make us happy, with both price and any other aspect you could ask for. Sal Travis entertainment was wonderful. a A TRUE PROFESSIONAL in every way. Sal will not stop working with or without, and for you, until you are happy. If we could do it all over again we'd 100% choose to return to Florentine and use Sal Travis Entertainment.
