AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING! Growing up in the family catering/venue business and knowing how an operation like this works, I naturally had very high standards. It was, without a doubt, truly the best night of our lives, and everything FG did EXCEEDED our expectations. From the very first minute we met with Maria, I knew this place was "the one." Not only was she extremely attentive throughout the entire process, but she was professional, sweet, flexible and just really amazing at what she does. The grounds and venue speak for itself...absolutely gorgeous...especially at night when the ballroom is lit up and the LED lights on the trees outside make for a stunning backdrop . The food, amount of food and service is cannot compare to any of the other venues in the area. (let's keep in mind that the other venues I shopped around at and have been guests at are also known for their food and service, but this just trumped it by a long shot- no comparison!!!). Another major factor that sets this place apart from it's competition is that there is only one wedding at a time. The attention to detail and how special they make you feel goes unmatched. I also need to make a special shout-out and give a HUGE THANKS to my Bridal Attendant, Laila , our Maitre D', Jeffery and the Director of Entertainment, Mr. Sal Travis. They were all AMAZING in every way and did EVERYTHING in their power to make the night go as flawless as possible, and IT WAS! 2 fun facts to note that also set this place apart from anywhere else: 1) They offered a 2nd round of all 3 entrees to all guests! No other wedding venue I've been to does that. 2) The day after my BM told me she asked the Maitre D' for diet iced tea...he actually sent someone out to go get her favorite flavor of Diet Snapple. Enough said!! THANK YOU TO THE MOON AND BACK: MARIA & TOM DAIDONE, LAILA, JEFFERY, SAL TRAVIS & THE REST OF THE FG STAFF for making this the best night of our lives and for making us feel like royalty. !!! <3

The Estate at the Florentine Gardens is is above and beyond, out of this world. The #1 venue! My wife and I were just married there last night and we had an excellent time. The entire staff is amazing, service was flawless, attention to detail on every aspect was outstanding! But above all such professionalism and pride in how they serve our guests is remarkable.
The Estate at the Florentine Gardens is where you need to be !

Maria Daidone (GM) was our point of contact, and she was sensational through out our entire journey! She always answered every single question, gave us great ideas, suggestions & would offer us everything under the sun to make us feel as we were family and not conducting business. Maria does her job with such passion that what you envision will become reality.

Sal Travis (Entertainment & Music) was another outstanding point of contact! He too would answer all questions, made sure that we were happy with song selections, lighting, montage, wrap up - you name it he has it ! INCLUDING A DRONE!!!!!!!

The House Band was fantastic and then some! They would even take turns to come down to the dance floor and sing in front of our guests and even us. Everyone was on the floor dancing all night - Every guest til this very minute is talking about this band.

The Videographer Evan, under Sal was phenomenal! Toward the end of the night, we had a wrap up video of the special highlights of the day, from my Bride getting ready with her bridesmaids, to myself tying my shoes and fixing my tie, with the groomsmen, Evan and team captured the vows in an incredible way - the emotions were so real that only this establishment could capture.

To wrap up, The Estate at the Florentine Gardens is truly a magical place and should be "THE ONLY VENUE" you choose!

If there were 100 stars they would receive all 100 of them!

Everything was amazing from start to finish. The hectic world of wedding planning was made so much easier knowing we were in great hands at The Estate at Florentine Gardens. Our coordinator, Michael Huxtable, was always there to answer any question we had and always took the time to make sure we were not in need of anything during our planning. Dealing with the venue during wedding preparations was super easy and even better on the day of our wedding. They were amazing! Our bridal attendant, Lila, was phenomenal! She made sure we were not in need of anything all day and absorbed any and all wedding day "to-dos". She made me feel comfortable and not stressed at all on my wedding day, I could tell we were in great hands and was so relieved to have such help if needed. The wedding itself is run very smoothly, The Estate at Florentine Gardens knows how to execute a perfect wedding! Everything from the food to the music was great and we have gotten so many compliments on our wedding! We could not have asked for a better experience!

Florentine Gardens is a wonderful venue for a wedding. One of its best features is that you are the only wedding taking place at one time. I worked with Jason Gentile, who I highly recommend for his professionalism and suggestions to make the wedding day of my dreams a reality. Many people have been calling to say how wonderful the food was and the variety at the cocktail hour as well as the Viennese table, what exceptional service they received, and the attentiveness given to all the guests. By having the entire estate to ourselves, people had the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful outdoor gardens. As the guests arrived, we were told they were greeted with a champagne toast with berries. From there, they were escorted to a room for the cocktail hour with an array of stations and passed hor devours. After the cocktail hour, our guests were invited to the ballroom where they had a choice of three exceptional entrees to choose from. The choices were very gluten friendly for some of our gluten-free guests. They felt they also had many options to choose from. The guests were even offered seconds! The ultimate ending to our wedding was the Viennese Table that had something for everyone. The leftovers were packed up for us to enjoy the next day. The bridal attendant was very sweet and attentive as well. We visited 13 venues and I am so happy that we chose the Florentine Gardens. I highly recommend this venue to future brides and grooms.

Florentine Gardens was above and beyond what we expected. From working with Michael from the beginning, to taking on Sal Travis and the House Band, we couldn't have been more satisfied. Our bridal attendant Kerry was amazing and there for anything that we needed on the day of. The food was phenominal from the cocktail hour to the deserts. Michael and Sal never missed a beat from the second we started working with them. Any question that we had was answered in a day. We have been told over and over again that our wedding was the best people have been to. I would highly recommend visiting Florentine Gardens as your wedding venue.

If we could give them more stars WE WOULD! There arent enough words to describe how absolutely AMAZING Florentine Gardens is! Not only was the place BEAUTIFUL, but this was an incredible place for us was because of the STAFF!As soon as we met MICHAEL, we knew this was our place! He gave us the utmost attention anyone could give a couple throughout their wedding planning time. He was always available to answer our questions. He is so down to earth &makes you feel so comfortable and relaxed. He is professional &has a great sense of humor. He offered us great suggestions &was not afraid to be honest with us! I remember standing on the dance floor with my husband and looking up at the balcony; there was Michael smiling down on us, giving us a head nod like “look at you guys,we did it,its perfect!”Literally brings me to tears thinking about that night. He was our angel!
Our entertainment, SAL is the happiest man I know, always has a smile on his face. He was so helpful from day one of meeting with him. Always available and accommodating to us. He can truly work MAGIC and is the heart of Florentine Gardens. He always made sure all eyes were on us that night…cake cutting, first dance, etc. We received so many compliments that night; our guests were blown away!“We have never been to a wedding like this; it was out of this world!”
DJ Alex was astounding! I have never seen so many people on the dance floor all night at a wedding. REMARKABLE entertainment team! Our videographer Evan is so talented! Our guests were BLOWN AWAY by the wrap up video; how is it possible to get such a high quality video put together so quickly with perfect moments picked out. My bridal attendant was there every step of the way. I literally would be taking pics outside & she would be behind me holding my drink so I could sip on it because it was so hot out. It was a day we will never forget, with people we will never be able to repay for such a great, magical, and once in a lifetime night

If we could give them more stars WE WOULD! There arent enough words to describe how absolutely AMAZING Florentine Gardens is! Not only was the place BEAUTIFUL, but this was an incredible place for us was because of the STAFF!As soon as we met MICHAEL, we knew this was our place! He gave us the utmost attention anyone could give a couple throughout their wedding planning time. He was always available to answer our questions. He is so down to earth &makes you feel so comfortable and relaxed. He is professional &has a great sense of humor. He offered us great suggestions &was not afraid to be honest with us! I remember standing on the dance floor with my husband and looking up at the balcony; there was Michael smiling down on us, giving us a head nod like “look at you guys,we did it,its perfect!”Literally brings me to tears thinking about that night. He was our angel!
Our entertainment, SAL is the happiest man I know, always has a smile on his face. He was so helpful from day one of meeting with him. Always available and accommodating to us. He can truly work MAGIC and is the heart of Florentine Gardens. He always made sure all eyes were on us that night…cake cutting, first dance, etc. We received so many compliments that night; our guests were blown away!“We have never been to a wedding like this; it was out of this world!”

The staff and facilities at Florentine Gardens is top notch. Very responsive customer service, and very flexible to meet our needs and schedule. Michael Huxtable was our venue coordinator, and we opted to have Sal Travis for our MC, along with DJ Alex. We did not use a wedding coordinator, and did not need to because Michael and the staff helped us stay very organized and on track. Sal was great at getting our guests on the dance floor, and everyone was raving about DJ Alex. They also made sure the music was quiet and calm between dancing segments so people could eat and have conversations. We had our ceremony in their outdoor area, which was beautiful and their gardens had many flowers blooming. Food is also excellent - most of our guests said it was the best cocktail hour and wedding food they have had. We cannot recommend Florentine Gardens enough.

Florentine Gardens made our special day even more amazing.
-Our event consultant was Mike Huxtable; great personality, flexible, & super easy to work with. He was always available to answer any questions we had regarding table seating, special requests, last-minute changes, etc. Mike made the planning process run smooth and added humor to settle our wedding jitters.
-Our bridal attendant was Leila. I would call her more of a magician, she would be there for you & get whatever you need in the blink of an eye; your signature drink, food, dress accessories, etc. She honestly knew what you needed before you even asked.
-Our entertainment was Sal Travis. Another great person part of the Florentine Family. Always greeted us with a smile! Sal was very accepting to my particular song list, even by the second I wanted songs to be played.Both him & DJ Alex collaborate great music sets to get the crowd going on the dance floor. He also helped with the lighting in the room that helped match my navy and yellow theme. Looked great in pictures with my centerpieces.
-Our videographer was Evan; another Florentine Magician. For someone to edit a video the same day, & play it after ten minutes of their last recording is unreal. The guests could not believe the quickness & quality of the wrap-up video. Evan was also very friendly!
-Our Maitre D was Jeff. Crucial Florentine member who made the night smooth as possible. Very pleasant to work with.
-Other staff members, Maria, Amanda and Denise, would pop in just to say hello & just make you feel even more comfortable for picking this amazing venue. All the staff at the Florentine Gardens were very personable & got to know us in the process which made the day more fun and special. If any future Bride and Groom were to ask me about Florentine Gardens, I wouldn't know where to start. The grounds are absolutely beautiful, the food is delicious, the ballroom is dream-like, and the entire staff is wonderful!

We just had our wedding reception at Florentine Gardens last month and had an unbelievable experience working with them! We were so impressed with the way they hosted our "Fairytale" wedding. From the beautiful chandeliers, high ceilings, and floor to ceiling windows, the venue itself was exactly what I was looking for in terms of that grand ballroom feel. Denise was our Event Consultant and she really went above and beyond in every way. From our first visit with her, I immediately felt comfortable putting our day in her hands -- she was such a sweet and friendly person, overly accommodating, professional, experienced, beyond amazing at her job and always put our interests first in making sure we were happy with every decision. She anticipated our questions and thought of absolutely everything - truly a pleasure to work with! She made sure we got what we wanted, even if it wasn't on the menu. At the last minute after not meeting our minimum guest count she threw in a custom mac & cheese bar for the cocktail hour that our guests are still raving about! She worked closely with us through the entire process -- helping to customize our menu, signature drinks and even our ice sculpture! She allowed us to create our dream wedding and we're so grateful for it! We received so many compliments about the service, the beautiful space and the quality & quantity of food -- our guests couldn't believe the amount of options and how delicious everything was! The wait staff and Maitre D' Jeff were incredible as well, making sure everything went seamlessly on the day of our wedding. Our wonderful Bridal Attendant Laila was a sweetheart and even knew how to bustle my very complicated dress within 5 minutes. She made sure I enjoyed the day and handled running around while I spent my time with family and friends. The entire team anticipated what we would need before we even had to ask. Sal Travis, Director of Entertainment was also very professional and great to work with!
