I cannot say enough amazing things about our wedding at the estate at florentine gardens and neither can all our guests! Our wedding coordinator Denise definitely made us feel right at home as if it was as much of a special day for her as it was for us she helped with everything and made us feel like we were her only clients! Jason the Maitre'D was so nice and made us feel like we were part of the family, he made sure everything was exactly the way we wanted and got every detail perfect! Lauren the bridal attendant was so amazing and sweet, everything little thing that I needed she was there to help - one of my bridesmaids shoes had some issues and she krazy glued them back together and resteamed my dress since it was a little wrinkly from the long car ride and when I got some mud on it while taking offsite pictures scrubbed all of it out - she was so incredible! Every single person on staff was spot on and was so attentive to everyone! The bartenders didn't even mind when 10 shots turned into 30-40 every half hour! They just kept them coming! The food was absolutely delicious every single thing I tasted was like heaven! My now husband finished off everything I didn't get to - and he is incredibly picky and he had nothing but amazing things to say about everything as well. Everyone warned me that something would be not just as I pictured it, but that was NOT the case for me - everything was better than I could've imagined! I'm so happy I had my wedding at the florentine gardens and was lucky enough to spend my special day surrounded by such caring and helpful people to make it everything I dreamed of!!!

My husband and I just recently had our wedding ceremony and reception at The Estate at Florentine Gardens on 3/29/15 and it was phenomenal! From day one, we had a great experience working with the staff. Maria, the General Manager, worked with us on every detail and made our lives so easy. She’s exceptional at her job. Maria made sure our wedding was exactly how we pictured it and had excellent recommendations from menu selections to vendors. Once we met Sal Travis, the Director of Entertainment and Services at Florentine, we knew from his warm and welcoming personality that he was the right choice for the music and entertainment portions of our wedding. Once again, with Sal, every detail was taken care of and we had nothing to worry about because he has so much experience. Our DJ was perfect and worked well with our music selections. He was really able to read the crowd and make sure all guests were having a great time. We used his videographer to create a wrap up video of the day’s events, which was shown to all of our guests in the ballroom on drop down projection screens at the end of the night. This was something very original that my guests had not seen before. Everyone was raving about how amazing it was to see a perfectly edited video of our wedding before the night was even done! There was so much delicious food during the cocktail hour and reception that no one leaves even slightly hungry. Thanks to Brooke, my bridal attendant for the day, my husband and I actually got to try everything! Jason, our maître d, oversaw the whole day and made sure everything went smoothly. He did a great job checking in on us throughout the night and keeping everyone smiling. I only have great things to say about Florentine. It’s beyond beautiful and all of our guests were blown away. It was the most magical night of our lives. Thanks so much to everyone at The Estate at Florentine Gardens!!!

My husband and I had our wedding reception at the Florentine Gardens on March 27, 2015. We, as well as our friends and family, cannot say enough wonderful things about our wedding and the estate. Our event coordinator, Michael, was amazing and made us feel extremely comfortable since day one. We knew that he would make our wedding vision come true and he did. He was extremely helpful with choosing vendors and the menu. He made sure the night went smoothly and we were all having an unforgettable time! We chose to work with Sal, the Entertainment Director, for music, videography, and lighting. Sal was incredible from the very beginning. He was extremely knowledgeable and knew exactly what to do to get the crowd up and dancing. We chose the House Band and they were absolutely INCREDIBLEEE!!!!!! The reaction on our guests faces as the singers came into the crowd was pricesless!!!!! Our maitre d, Jeff, and bridal attendant, Lauren, were outstanding. There was never a moment when Lauren wasn't there when I needed her, she was extremely attentive and did an amazing job making sure I was comfortable throughout the night. Jeff, did a wonderful job of making everything occurred the way it was supposed to happen. All our guests had such an incredible time and raved about the staff, food, and music. We showed our wrap up video at the end of the night, which was a last minute decision and Sal MADE it happen, it was such a wonderful experience and touching moment for us and all our guests to experience together. Especially for those who didn't make it to the ceremony earlier that day. The Florentine Gardens made my wedding dreams and hopes come to life and even more. I never thought anything could be so perfect or wonderful and I have the Florentine Gardens and their staff to thank for that!!!! We thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for making the most important day of our lives the BEST we could have ever wanted!!!

We just got married here this past Saturday 3/21/15 and Omg we are so on cloud nine still as well as smiling ear to ear. We had such an amazing time thank you so so much. I don't even think I could actually put into words how thankful I really am. Maria, Sal, the DJ, Evan (videographer) as well as Jeff (maitre'd) and Lauren (bridal attendant) and the rest of the staff did an exquisite job on our wedding day. We could not have asked for anything better. You guys went above and beyond and we are just so freaking happy with how the day went! Thank you so much for making the wedding planning such an easy and joyful experience! This venue is by far the BEST place to get married in the entire state of New Jersey. Everything was superb! We used the in house vendors for DJ, montage, wrap up video, and videograpy and all I can say is WOW!! Our guests are like speechless with how everything went we have received only the best compliments about of venue and the service! Our guests never even sat down unless it was to eat. That is how you know it was an AMAZING time. Not only was the entertainment wonderful but the food was out of this world! Did I mention the staff? Because they were simply the best!! Everyone treated us as if we were family it was incredible. I'm so sad our wedding day is over but I definitely look forward to having other occasions at the Florentine Gardens. It literally was the BEST experience of our entire lives! We wanna thank everyone at the Florentine Gardens for everything you all did it was the MOST AMAZING TIME EVER! We wish we could do it all over again because it was such a pleasant experience.

Love you all,
Mr. and Mrs. Nevin

Where do I begin? We had looked at several venues before we went to Florentine Gardens but once we viewed the venue and met Denise we knew this was the place for us. From the first day we met Denise and ever since she made sure she was there for us every step of the way. Any time we needed something she was available. Anything we were unsure of something she guided us in the right direction. It was easy to tell the we weren't just another wedding and she truly cared and wanted to make sure our dreams came true on our special night. Lauren was our bridal attendant and she was truly incredible. Everything we needed throughout the night we got right away. My bustle broke and she jumped right in, grabbed stuff out of her pocket and pieced it back together. The videographer Evan was amazing, got great video all night and kept us laughing. We would highly recommend Florentine Gardens to everyone we know. If you want your dream wedding to come true call Denise

If you’re looking for a venue that is completely accommodating and welcoming, The Estate at Florentine Gardens is your place. My husband and I came to this venue after hearing recommendations from friends and relatives. From the balcony that overlooks the main ballroom, to the beautiful gardens around the property, to the natural light that the ballroom is exposed to, everything about this venue is absolutely gorgeous and the staff was so professional and amazing.

During our search for a wedding venue, we came across other venues with similar features and amenities. What separated The Estate at Florentine Gardens from the other venues was Denise Downing. Working with Denise was such a smooth and relaxing experience. When going to other venues, it felt more strict, business-oriented, and non-flexible. At one place, the manager just threw us food, left, and came back to us 15 minutes later and asked us “Do we have a deal?” Denise was very warm, friendly, and made us feel very at ease when it came to making such a big decision. From when we booked Florentine Gardens in January 2014 to our wedding day on March 15, 2015, although it was still stressful experience, Denise did EVERYTHING in her power to make it clear that we were not alone. Denise and her staff made us feel so at home and it just felt so right.

We love you Denise, and the rest of the amazing staff at Florentine Gardens!!!

All Our Love, Mr & Mrs. Deegan

There are not enough kind words in any language to express my feelings about Florentine Gardens and the remarkable staff, especially Denise. After visiting many venues, I made the right choice after meeting Denise. She really listened to what I wanted and made every moment of my wedding planning so incredibly easy and pressure free. You can not find anyone better than her anywhere. Sal took care of my lighting, photobooth, and other added details. He is kind, experienced and also very easy to work with. My wedding day was an ice storm. The wonderful staff at Florentine Gardens went out of there way to accommodate late arrivals, mine included! The food is amazing, the venue is by far the most gorgeous and well maintained location that I visited, and really and truly there is a staff, including Jason and Lauren (the most attentive bridal attendant you will find!), that you really believe care about you and want your wedding day to be the most special day of your life. My wedding was beautiful and I have everyone at Florentine Gardens to thank for that. If you are considering booking your wedding there, please do. You will not regret it.

After visiting many venues, I made the right choice after meeting Denise. She really listened to what I wanted and made every moment of my wedding planning so incredibly easy and pressure free. You can not find anyone better than her anywhere. Sal took care of my lighting, photobooth, and other added details. He is kind, experienced and also very easy to work with. My wedding day was an ice storm. The wonderful staff at Florentine Gardens went out of there way to accommodate late arrivals, mine included! The food is amazing, the venue is by far the most gorgeous and well maintained location that I visited, and really and truly there is a staff, including Jason and Lauren (the most attentive bridal attendant you will find!), that you really believe care about you and want your wedding day to be the most special day of your life. My wedding was beautiful and I have everyone at Florentine Gardens to thank for that. If you are considering booking your wedding there, please do. You will not regret it. Read less

I wish I could do it all over again. From the beautiful venue, to the food, staff, and our coordinator, Michael Huxtable, I can’t imagine a better place to get married. Michael was amazing throughout our planning process. He was so helpful, informative, and always available; whether by phone, email, or if we simply popped in bc we were in the neighborhood. He answered any question ranging from the venue to the RSVP date on our invitations, and was extremely accommodating – the word “no” never left his mouth. With Michael, it felt more like a friendship than a business relationship, and it makes me sad I won’t have a reason to speak with him regularly! The staff at FG is also outstanding. We hired the in-house entertainment mgr, Sal Travis, to MC the reception & manage the entertainment in the ball room. Sal is so much fun! We were always excited to see him & trusted him immediately to put on a great show - he absolutely did! He was willing to help us with anything, provided guidance and even offered to make calls. And he didn’t flinch when we changed our first dance song 3x the week of the wedding! We also used one of FG’s recommended florists and wedding officiant. FG is simply professional & we knew we could trust any vendor they recommended. On our wedding day we didn’t have to worry about a thing. My bridesmaids and I got ready in a tremendous bridal suite with yummy food/drinks, and my bridal attendant, Lauren, was there any time I had a question. Everything was coordinated perfectly by the staff and maître d, and the night went off without a hitch. The cocktail hour food was so delicious & plentiful; guests were shocked dinner would be served afterwards. At the reception, I never had to ask for a drink because it was on the table waiting for me. I was truly able to enjoy my own wedding, and our guests had a fantastic time, too. If I had to rewind, I wouldn’t do a single thing differently. Saying thank you is simply not enough!!

My husband and I are truly living off the high of our wedding yesterday. Everything could not have been more perfect and that is truly thanks to the amazing staff at the Estate at Florentine Gardens. Maria was so wonderful to work with over the past year. She was always so pleasant, professional and fun! We had a great time feeding off of each other for ideas that would make our wedding special. I cannot imagine there being anyone better in the business. Sal Travis Entertainment provided our beautiful ceremony music, which included a pianist and violinist. Their lovely music brought so many to tears. We also used them for our special entrances, speeches and first dances. Our videographer, Brian, was so fun to work with! We, along with our guests, are still amazed by how quickly he was able to make our wrap up video. We are so in love with our video! My bridal attendant, Lauren, was so sweet and attentive all day long (and it was a long day). Our guests raved about our delicious cocktail hour and how great the service was. I think that this will be a wedding our guests remember for a while! Thank you FG for giving us the wedding of our dream! :)

My husband and I were beyond impressed with everyone at the Florentine Gardens. From the beginning Michael and Sal were there to help us with every step of the planning process. I expected to be worried about the day of but everything went so smoothly with all of their help, nothing was left to chance or forgotten. The venue was beautiful and the food was amazing, our guest are still talking about it! Especially the after party!! The food was amazing, the dj we used through the venue kept the guests on the dance floor the entire evening, and the videographer (also through the venue) created the most amazing wrap up video (which we received the same night!). There are not enough words to explain what an amazing wedding we had and how easy it was to work with everyone there!! Thank you again Florentine Gardens!!
