The most amazing wedding!
Our daughter was married at The Estate at Florentine Gardens are April 6th. It was PERFECT! The year of planning was made seamless with the help of Jason Gentile. He helped guide us through all of the issues with planning a wedding. Nothing was too much trouble for Jason.Sent on 05/16/2019
The day of the wedding was so wonderful. They had the ceremony at Florentine, as well. We were a little nervous as there was an event prior to the wedding. However, Florentine's staff is so incredible that they made the turnover with ease.
Our bridal attendant, Kerry, was fantastic. She anticipated every need and was on top of everything.
The cocktail hour was over the top. The food was tremendous, plentiful and available. No one had to hunt down the passed hors d'oeuvres. My only regret is that it was only an hour.
The maître d', George, kept everything running smoothly. We had several guests in the event industry. They were blown away by the efficiency of the staff at Florentine.
Everyone's dinner arrived hot and in a timely manner. One guest mentioned that she was gluten free to one of the servers. The dish was whisked away and replaced with an appropriate meal in minutes.
The Venetian hour was ridiculous. So many delicious treats.
More than a few of our guests remarked about how happy the staff were. They interacted with our guests with high fives and jokes and seemed like one of the party, while still doing their jobs to perfection.
We've been to a couple other weddings since our daughter's. At those weddings, people are still telling us that her wedding was the best they've ever been to. Our only regret is that it went by so fast. So, if anyone is having a wedding at Florentine and needs a couple additional guests, we're in!

This place is hands down the absolute BEST decision i made while planning my wedding!! The entire staff was amazing! The contact person we had, Jason Gentile, was so helpful with EVERYTHING!!! Definitely worth every. single. penny. The bridal attendant I had knew what I wanted before I wanted it and Jason was with us every step of the way the day of. He made sure my entire bridal party was organized for entrances and directed them so my entrance with my husband was perfectly executed! I couldn't have asked for a better day even if I tried! Florentine Gardens is the way to go!!!! Sal Travis, the in house entertainment, is FANTASTIC! he accommodated us in every way possible. I definitely threw some curve balls his way and he handled like a champ! The music, lighting, wrap up video, everything was absolutely amazing!!!Sent on 04/02/2019
