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

I'm not sure there's enough space for my thoughts on the best day of my life... jason, my planner from day one, answered all my bridezilla emails for a year and a half and made me feel totally sane in every response, he was comforting and put my mind at ease that the night would go flawless... and it absolutely did...
Sal, was so kind and calming and promised an amazing video for my night, a beautiful picture montage for my entrance and that I'd leave with hours of footage and all of that plus more happened...Evan Soloffs same day edit was perfection, I think I've watched it 20 times in 2 days.!!!! Kerry my bridal attendant was the absolute sweetest and most patient person ever and I was so lucky to have her with me all night! Jeff was my maitre d, he was helpful, funny, quick and to the point and made sure we had fun With every section of the parties responsibilities..! I was really blessed to work this crew on my special day. Besides the facility being stunning the people working it make the night go on without a beat skipped. The DJ was part of the grooms family and they even commented the next day on well they were treated and how beautiful florentine is. The amount of food they sent us home with is INSANE.. I could go on and on... but I'll leave the review with this... it was the most perfect night of my life, and the team and Florentine made that happen.! Thank you all so much ?

My husband and I got married at Florentine on New Year's Eve 2016 and it was the best day of our lives! From the day we walked into this venue we fell in love! Aside from a beautiful place, the staff is amazing and truly treats you like family. We worked with Denise for about a year and a half and she honestly helped make our dream wedding come true. We must of sent Denise hundreds of emails over the year and a half and she would answer us immediately and always willing to help! She gave us so many great ideas and recommendations that we were able to use for our wedding day! Closer to our wedding we also had help from Maria who was just as amazing as Denise! Our wedding was perfect and the wonderful staff helped make it run smoothly ! Jeffrey, our maitrd, was incredible and made sure our night ran perfect. He was absolutely the biggest help to us! Kerry my bridal attendant was by mine and my husbands side, making sure we had food and drinks! My dress was even stepped on by a guest at cocktail hour and the bustle broke right off - Kerry pinned my dress up perfectly without hesitation for me ! The food was so INCREDIBLE - we had guests raving about it the whole week after, especially the mac n cheese! We had many guests also raving about the kind and attentive wait staff too! I'm also so happy we used Sal Travis for our entrance entertainment and for our NYE ball drop coverage of Times Square. It was the perfect touch to add to our wedding and made it so memorable! I would highly recommend Florentine Gardens without hesitation!

I can't say enough great things about the Florentine Gardens! The wedding was a dream come true in every way possible. The food was amazingly delicious and endless. People are still talking about how great the food was a month later. The grounds are so beautiful. The room is breathtaking at night. The trees outside the venue are lit up at night and make the room even more beautiful. Sal Travis and the entertain team were amazing as well. So easy to work with. They made every request come to life. The in house dj picked songs that made everyone want to dance. I was skeptical about doing a video but I have to admit it was the best thing I did. The videographer was amazing. I've watched it over and over and over. You will not be disappointed. Ian and I continue to get feedback on how amazing everything was.

There are no real words we can put together to describe our experience we had at The Estate at Florentine Gardens. Best decision of our lives to get married here, and we truly mean that. It was incredible from start to finish, blew our guests out of the water! The vision I had for my wedding was taken by Denise Downing and delivered tenfold. We can't thank her enough for everything she did for us. We were astonished that everything we dreamed our wedding to be was even better thanks to The Dream Team at Florentine! This is the wedding of the year everyone in the family is still talking about!!!

We met with Sal Travis and knew immediately we were in the best hands in the business. Music, MC, Lights, anything entertainment they had THE BEST in house. Sal was phenomenal point blank. Organized, professional, experienced, and most important... fun! He really knew how to get the party going, and keep it going all night long! DJ James was awesome! He played all our songs we requested and had the best combination to make guests of all ages happy! We still have people raving about the giant projectors, flashing lights, and well spoken MC Sal as our bridal party (and parent) enterances were the biggest hit! The flow of the night was perfect too. There was never a dull moment and everything was timed out perfectly!

We had a huge surprise for our guests at the end of the night when everyone turned to the screens and saw our wrap up video. Which by the way, was so spectacular it made almost everyone tear up. It was just perfect and really impressed everyone. Videographer Evan was amazing and extremely talented!

The entire team at Florentine really impressed everyone because the service was LUXURY, the place LUXURY, everything was 5 star service. Kerry our bridal attendant, Jason our Maitre D both were above and beyond their job. Kerry truly blew my mind with her professionalism and care. She was so amazing my bridesmaids were raving about her all night.

It was just perfect and really impressed everyone. Videographer Evan was amazing and extremely talented!

The entire team at Florentine really impressed everyone because the service was LUXURY, the place LUXURY, everything was 5 star service. Kerry our bridal attendant, Jason our Maitre D both were above and beyond their job. Kerry truly blew my mind with her professionalism and care. She was so amazing my bridesmaids were raving about her all night. Read less

Words cannot describe the amazing, perfect experience we had getting married at the Florentine Gardens! The day we walked in to look at the venue, we met with Maria and immediately fell in love with everything the Florentine offered! We cancelled our other appointments and booked the Florentine Gardens that DAY. BEST DECISION EVER. The Florentine Gardens delivers a 5-star, First Class wedding experience from day 1. The service is impeccable. Special THANK YOU to our bridal attendant Hallie and maître d' Jeffrey for impeccable service. The food is UNBELIEVABLE and I'm Italian and know good food! Maria was our point of contact through the whole process and she honestly felt like someone we knew for years and part of the family! Even my Mom said the same thing! We also booked the in-house DJ and Sal Travis Entertainment. They were amazing and kept our wedding guests dancing the WHOLE time. We were blown away by the "Same Day Edit" video they provided which is an edited, professional video about 5 minutes long that captures your entire wedding day. It came out beautiful and everyone was in disbelief that it was ready for us SO SOON! We had several of our guests tell us it was the best wedding they had been to. The cocktail hour food is SO delicious and grand, and the best cocktail hour I've ever been to. PLUS, they provide small tables for the bride and groom and our parents and BRING US cocktail hour food plates to make sure we get to try everything while there. And then during dinner time, we were literally offered seconds and a taste of every entree if we wanted (for the bride/groom and our VIP tables). I highly recommend using the accent lighting too. We did a purple/pink/blue tone, and the room was so unbelievably beautiful especially with the large windows and trees with white lights on them, and tea light candles on the window sills. The room looked magical. The entire night was magical. I could not have dreamed of a more perfect wedding! THANK YOU!

We cannot say enough good things about our experience at Florentine Gardens this past Friday! We began our journey with them last November and after considering them and 2 other venues, we knew before we left our initial meeting with Denise that this was the place for us. Not only is it beautiful and the food amazing, but Denise was warm, personable, professional, and made us feel at ease. You can tell from her bubbly personality that she loves what she does and wants you to have the best experience possible. Our next meeting there was with Sal Travis, who was also warm, friendly and professional, and helped us through all the decisions as to music, video, DJ and the theatrical packages that they offer at Florentine Gardens. His guidance with these things really helped us add a personal focus for our wedding, the photo montage to start off our reception and the beautiful wrap up video by there videographer Eric was wonderful to share with our guests and capture our memories.. The DJ James was amazing and the dance floor was full all night. The staff at Florentine made sure everything ran smoothly throughout the night, and our best man commented how efficient they were and how they were prepared for every scenario. There was not an ounce of stress after stepping off the party bus, where we were met by big hugs and smiles from Denise and the staff. Our attendant, Kerry, was by our side all night and so helpful with helping us enjoy our night. I can't rave enough about how the staff at Florentine made our night the best of our lives, and how our guests were raving about the venue, food, and all the little touches that are unique to Florentine. We had over 300 people there and not one left with an empty stomach, many commented about the abundance of cocktail hour as well as the how great the food was. If you want a venue that is elegant and unforgettable but where you can also relax and have fun on your day, this is your place.

My husband and I had our wedding at The Florentine Gardens on Friday November 25, 2016. I do not know where to begin to praise how amazing the staff and our wedding at the Florentine Gardens were. I would first like to start with Michael Huxtable. I met Michael back in 2013 when my sister got engaged and was shopping around for wedding venues. The Florentine Gardens was the first venue we went to go see and we all absolutely fell in love thanks to Michael who helped us envision exactly what the wedding would look like. We went to several other venues and nothing (as well as no one) compared to Michael and The Estate. My sisters wedding went off without a hitch and it was then I knew, when it was my time, there is no place that I'd rather get married but there. I contacted Michael a few months after our engagement, he sat down with us again and we were hooked. Michael was there with every step of the way, every question was answered immediately and he helped us make our wedding exactly what we imagined it to be, a fairy tale. Sal Travis also played a huge part of our special day. We opted for the theatrical package with Sal as well as the wrap up video and open air photo booth. Sal was absolutely phenomenal when it came to answering questions and making sure that every I was dotted and t was crossed. I would email Sal with a question and within seconds I would get a response back with an answer! Our videographer Evan supplied us with an outstanding wrap up video that we will cherish forever! Lastly, I would like to praise Jason, Kerry (our bridal attendant), and the amazing Florentine staff for helping make our day run so smoothly and making sure our guests and families had an amazing time. Jason and Kerry were constantly making sure that we had everything we needed. We received nothing but compliments from ALL of our guests the entire night who were floored by how friendly the staff were, the amazing food and the overall atmosphere of the Florentine!

Florentine Gardens (FG) hosted our wedding on 11/12/16. Our entire experience at FG, from beginning to end was phenomenal! We have nothing but good things to say.
VENUE/GROUNDS - Classic Georgian style estate setting. Inside feels like you own a mansion for the day; plenty of space in all key areas (entrance, cocktail hour, main reception hall) and gorgeous décor throughout. Outside consists of various gardens and terraces with plenty of foliage, which make for a beautiful setting and nice pictures. We did the ceremony inside due to weather, but the option for outside is there, and we recommend it weather permitting.
COCKTAIL HOUR/FOOD – Outstanding. Come hungry. Cocktail: Large variety of both attendee and non-attendee station choices, including on alcohol as well. Key favorite was the Peter Luger Steak Station and the Raw Bar. It was so good, we want to go back just to have a cocktail hour party alone. Reception: Variety of types of beef, chicken, fish, veggie plates, plus sides. Quality throughout. They served guests seconds, which was awesome.
Service – Absolutely terrific. The entire staff was phenomenal, worked their tails off, and was actively checking in throughout. Guests also later told us how attentive and pro-active the staff was. Carrie (Bridal Attendant) and Jorge, who worked closely with my wife and I throughout the day, were remarkable, and we’ll always appreciate their contributions.
ENTERTAINMENT – We used their in-house DJ and entertainment (Sal Travis). They put on an excellent show. The audience was engaged without being overburdened. We paid extra for optional lighting, videography, montage videos including an excellent wedding recap video edited the day of the wedding, and played for all to see at the end. Well worth it.
PLANNING - The staff was organized and collaborative. We worked with Michael mainly; he provided close, personalized attention to detail. He was responsive to our calls and emails, and reasonable during negotiations.
