I don’t even know where to begin. All of the staff at Florentine gardens made sure our night was absolutely perfect from start to finish. Jeff, our maître’d and Lila the bridal attendant was waiting for us as we pulled up to the beautiful venue. We were quickly escorted to the bridal suite after taking a couple pictures upon request. Lila helped escort me throughout the night. Between bustling and unbustling my dress countless times and making sure my train fell perfectly in every picture, to having a drink ready in hand at all times, she was absolutely amazing! She even took pictures on her personal phone of me and my bridal party. I’m still speechless about the service she provided.Sent on 11/05/2019
Sal and the band absolutely killed it! Music was on point the ENTIRE night. I couldn’t have imagined a better band!
The food was absolutely amazing. The presentation at the cocktail hour and viennese hour was beautifully displayed, in addition to decadent and delicious, like all food at Florentine. Guests are still talking about it!
Everything about my wedding night was absolutely perfect, thanks to Maria! I will never be able to thank her enough.
The food, band, amazing gardens and the all made this possible. BIG thank you again to Maria, Amanda, Tom, Ciro, Sal, Jeff and Lila for providing us with an unforgettable night.

The Estate at Florentine Gardens.
There’s absolutely no reason for anyone to have their wedding anywhere else but here. The food is outrageous and the reception was magical from the second we arrived. Our maitre d Jorge and bridal attendant Isabel we with us the entire time making sure we had everything we needed and made sure everything ran smoothly through out the entire night. Sal and his entire crew were absolutely incredible and made sure the party never stopped. Everything was literally magical through out the night. DJ Tony Gia was definitely the DJ you’d want to play your wedding if you want people up and having a great time through out the night. Jesse put together the perfect wrap up video to end the night which was one of our favorite parts. But none of this would have been possible without the help from our consultant Maria. She helped us out from the very beginning and was absolutely fantastic through out all of our planning.Sent on 11/08/2019
