  • Our wedding consultant was Oliver Leoni, the guy is straight up money. He's enthusiastic, knows his stuff and makes you feel totally relaxed. While most places cater to just the bride I found this venue made us men feel welcome and took care of us all the way through. Sal Travis is the director of entertainment, and he too is a class act. Took care of everything from video to lighting to music and MC. Superb! If you decide to use the in-house entertainment package, highly recommended! My wife surprised me with Mr. Met at our wedding and they were totally cool with it and seamlessly integrated him into the celebration. In short, excellent food, excellent service, excellent staff and gorgeous grounds/rooms. Everyone who attended could not stop gushing about this place and the night overall!

  • Why choose the Florentine Gardens? Because my guests are still raving about the amazing food and the beautiful grounds. Because the staff provided not only lavish service, but because they went above and beyond, helping a guest clean and dry a child's dress that became soiled. Because every idea I brought to Denise Downing was met with the phrase "We can make that happen," and they did.

  • I can't say enough about this place...just look at the ballroom and you'll know what I mean. This place is magnificent. The ballroom has high ceilings, and windows everywhere, looking out into gardens and trees wrapped in lights. The bridal suite is humongous.. Cocktail hour is fabulous, lavish, delicious... And the people who work here...AMAZING. We had the privilege of working with Denise Downing...who is on top of everything. She is prompt, gets back to your emails and phone calls... She is fun, and has a great energy about her that is contagious... My husband and I will miss meeting with her to go over wedding details. And the entertainment crew is amazing as well...headed by Sal Travis.. We did a wrap-up video which is a 4 minute video of our day that was provided to us at the end of the night.. Call far in advance, as it books quickly. Theres a wedding day here for every bride's budget...

  • I really have to start at the beginning, one year ago, when we and our son in law's parents first came to see FG.. Denise's warmth, enthusiasm & confident explanation of all FG could offer us, coupled with the beautiful grounds, the cocktail hour room with TABLES & CHAIRS (yeah!), the beautiful ball room, the ability to transform a daytime affair into what felt like a nighttime one by lowering the shades, etc quickly sealed the deal. Your unbridled endorsement of Petals Premier's talents, of Sal's house band's renown, of Milton Gil's photographic skills all served to simplify what would become our long distance maneuvering. Each time we met with you, each time I e-mailed you, my "leap of faith" seemed less daunting. As the date drew nearer, and the floral decisions, cake selection, hotel reservations, etc were all finalized, I realized that I was able to orchestrate a wedding from 2 1/2 hours away because we had YOU as our fulcrum, keeping everything in balance. And then... Read more

  • The Estate at Florentine Gardens made my wedding day dreams come true and more! From the moment I walked into the building when I booked my wedding I knew that the venue was exceptional. The hall itself speaks volumes about the quality of service you will receive here. Everything is very well maintained and the decor works beautifully with any style choice. The staff is willing to cater to your every need! Whatever you want they will either get it for you or help arrange it with you. The entertainment services offered here are also exceptional. The day of the wedding I could not have asked for more. The quality and professionalism was outstanding and can not be duplicated. The staff and attendants were there to assist with everything my guests or I might need at a moments notice. I did not worry about one thing the entire day because they took care of every last detail. The ceremony, cocktail hour and reception ran so smoothly due to all of their hard work. The food is magn... Read more

  • I am so happy my husband and I chose this place for our wedding. As soon as I walked into the Florentine Gardens I immediately knew that was the place where I wanted to get married. Compared to other places and taking into account the quality of the service, food and the beautiful venue, this place is very affordable and having the entire venue to yourself is priceless. We worked with Noelle from day one and she was wonderful, very responsive and extremely helpful. I am a control freak and as soon as I arrived at the Florentine Gardens on my wedding day I started asking questions about all the details, but soon realized that these people had everything under control so I was able to let go and simply enjoy what has been the best day of my life. People are still talking about my wedding, the beautiful venue and how good the food was. The presentation of the food was exquisite from the cocktail hour to the vienese hour. We got the entertainment package: lights, DJ, video, wrap up... Read more

  • What can I say about the Florentine that has not already been said?? This, in my opinion, is the NUMBER 1 place to have your wedding - not just because the decor is amazing...not just because the food is amazing.....but the staff is a step above and it is all led by Noelle Gisonde - she certainly made this night THE best for my Friends and I - we never wanted for anything - she was right there making sure everyone was happy & fed very very well - she was even right there for us with things we did not even know we wanted - truly a top notch professional!! Make sure to ask for her when you book your affair - you will be relaxed all night, not have to think of one thing and have the time of your life - I guarantee it!!!

  • This place is beautiful and well worth the money. All our guests are still talking about how great the wedding was and its been almost a year. The service was great. The only thing is I think they should drop the amount of people you have to guarantee down a little so more people could have there wedding here or make sure you try to negotiate that before you sign the contract. We had to gurantee 175 and ended up only having about 150 guests. A lot of money was wasted there but they wouldn't budge after I explained our situation. They did let me bring some dinners and food home but it def did not equal the value we spent for the 25 guests. Our maitre was just excellent. She was there any and everytime you needed her. The lighting is also a must for the room. It totally makes the whole place look even better than it already does.

  • I just recently had my wedding at the Florentine on Sept 2nd and I truly can say it was absolutly PERFECT I wouldn't of changed a single thing! The Florentine is 100% the best place to have a wedding, or any party! The service and production that was put on was absolutely mind blowing! Everyone is STILL talking about it and saying it was the best wedding that they have EVER been to!! I watch the video wrap up everyday and I still cant believe how perfect everything turned out. Everyone wants to go back ASAP because the food and service, the music and entertainment was just AWESOME! I really can't express how EXCELLENT the service was, especially for both my husband and I. I felt like a movie star for sure! The service and attention the Florentine gives not only the bride and groom but the guests is just amazing. I could go on and on about how perfect everything was, but I wont! You HAVE HAVE HAVE to have your wedding, or any event here! You will NOT be sorry!

  • We just had our wedding at Florentine Gardens this past Sunday, August 7th, and it was the absolute best experience of our lives from beginning to end. Everyone was friendly and helpful during planning and during our actual wedding day. Our guests have called and commented on how beautifully everything was put together, how organized everything was, how professional the staff was, and how DELICIOUS the food was! I could not and would not change one aspect of that day. The staff puts care into every detail, and you can tell they truly aim to make it an amazing experience for you on your wedding day. Little girls dream of how perfect their wedding day should be, and I'm so happy that mine came true in every way.

  • I would like to say that I had the wedding of my dreams at the Florentine Gardens on 7/30/11. Everything was perfect and flawless, it was one amazing party :). Noelle was our sales agent and she was wonderful! She helped us pick the perfect menu. All of our guests are still talking about the short rib mushroom risotto! The cocktail hour was spectacular. We also went with the House band, DJ, lighting, and video, which was done by Sal Travis. All were beyond our expectations. The band was amazing their range was unbelievable, they could play anything and make it sound great. I have to say my husband and I danced all night. My bridal attendant was spectacular. I actually got the front of my dress dirty during pictures before the wedding. I had a big red streak across the front and I was mortified. My bridal attendant got the stain out in two minutes and saved the day. She also fixed my bustle three times after I ripped it out dancing. She was simply amazing. Overall, I cannot even expre...

  • I am the bride's father and am considered by most as a very demanding person. I was completely blown away by our daughter's wedding on 7/30/2011. Our coordinator Noelle was fantastic. She catered to every whim that we asked for. But talk is cheap and most do not deliver as described. There was a wedding in the afternoon and we were worried that it would effect our evening affair. Richard promised that it would be ok and it was. From the time we arrived till one am when the affair was over; nothing but perfection occured. The outdoor sevice perfect, the coctail hour, the dinner,the venetian table all were beyond our expectations. The food quality was superb giving people vast choices.The meats were prime the fish fresh. The alcohol served was top shelf The staff was over accommodating. Our server Nancy was fantastic. She read my mind before I even knew I wanted something. My wife's shoe came apart and Richard sent out someone to buy glue and they repaired her shoe. We used the house ba... Read more

  • Our wedding was this past July 29, 2011 and the Florentine Gardens was by far the best venue to have your event at. Our wedding was beyond incredible and we have Sal and the entire team at the Florentine Gardens to thank for it. Every detail was so perfect and the staff was amazing and attentive. We loved they way Richard/Sal would tell Mike and I what the next steps were in the course of the evening. Although it rained and we could not have our ceremony outside, the staff went above and beyond to make the ballroom just as beautiful as the garden. Our ceremony ended up being my favorite part of the evening. Everyone made us feel so comfortable at all times and Nancy our bridal attendant was fabulous. All of our friends and family are raving that it was the best wedding they have ever been to and the service/food was out of this world!!! The Executive Chef did such an amazing job and our DJ was a big hit! I can not stop watching the wrap up video, I love it!!! If you decide to... Read more

  • As Mother of the Groom I must say that the Florentine Gardens was the best venue for my son and daughter-in-law's wedding. From the on-site ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner and venetian hour everything was flawless. Our coordinator Denise was the most amazing person, Denise and the staff were professional and made sure everyone was taken care of. The food was just unbelievable, the cocktail hour food was truly the best with wonderful presentation, dinner was unbelievable, then when you think it just does not get better the venetian hour comes along and becomes a WOW moment. Denise was there every step of the way from the beginning to the end. The theatrical show that Sal did along with the montage just took everyones breath away. I cannot thank Denise, Sal and the staff at the Florentine Gardens for making the most beautiful wedding that anyone can have. Our guests are still talking about how wonderful the food was and how attentive and professional the staff was to everyone's needs. ... Read more

  • The good things: these guys know what theyr'e doing and put on an AWESOME show, and from what i hear, the food at my wedding was amazing. The bad things: as the bride, i was treated like crap; assigned a "bridal attendant" who i only saw ONCE during the reception and was MIA the whole day, AND didnt know how to do a bustle. Wehn I asked her for food during the cocktail hour, she came back with ten skewers of meat, and NOT what I asked her for. When I expressed my complaint to Richard, he blew me off. Overall, my wedding was a very special day, but it was NO THANKS to the florentine gardens.
