Our wedding 3/9/2019
From the moment we came to Florentine to view the venue for our wedding we felt at home. When we met with Maria she was soo incredibly helpful, knowledgeable, full of ideas and recommendations and we immediately knew this was where we were going to get married. But we also would like to mention how amazing Our wrap up video was (thank you shar) and how helpful Sal was in explaining our video and lighting package (I would definitely recommend both to future brides).
Now for the big day. I can’t express how grateful we were to the entire team especially Jorge our maitre d and Maria who worked above and beyond to make sure everything was absolutely perfect! Jorge was extremely professional, and on top of all the details to ensure our perfect evening. Lastly I have to give a special thank you to Layla my bridal attendant and complete savior for the night. She was soo incredibly sweet, attentive, helpful and made the night go soo smoothly for me. Thank you again to the entire team at Florentine!!
Love Jessica Dunski

Amazing, phenomenal, accommodating, dream-vision-miracle workers!! Absolutely the best day of our lives all thanks to the incredible staff at the Estate! Us and our guests cannot say enough wonderful things about them! They take pride and passion in what they do and pay attention to literally every detail you ask and more! Denise- our coordinater/planner was flawless and answered every and any question in speedy response and helped create our perfect fairy tale wedding- she can make it all happen!!!!! Sal- our Entertainment coordinator (MC, Music, video, lighting) was such a pleasure to work with. It was so comforting that we were in great hands with him and he does not disappoint! Made all of our visions come to life!! DJ Rob knocked it out of the park!!!!! Our guests never left the dance floor which is exactly what we wanted. Our guests kept telling us the DJ was the best they’ve ever heard at a wedding and played such a great mix and listened to all of our requests! Evan- our videographer captured every single important, fun and loving moment of the night! Super nice and talented! Jorge- our Matre D was our right hand man that day and made sure EVERYTHING ran smoothly (which of course it did because when you’re at the Estate... it’s just perfection). He was great with our bridal party and making sure we were happy with how the night was going. Layla- my bridal attendant is the sweetest and was so helpful! She knew what I was thinking or needed Without even having to ask and was so quick to attend and help me— I couldn’t have had the memorable time I did without her :) And the food—come hungry and you will leave full and happy!
