The Estate at Florentine Gardens
Florentine Gardens and their whole team has my highest recommendation! The service, their work ethic, the atmosphere, everything went exactly how I wanted it too and planned for. Planning a wedding during COVID has many challenges, but the team at Florentine made sure to accommodate myself, my husband and my guests to the best of their ability. I personally planned with Jason and he seemed to be available 24/7 with all of my questions and made anything I wanted, happen. He was professional but kind and understanding. I hired Sal Travis entertainment for my video and worked very closely with Sal and Shar. Sal is definitely experienced and knew the lay of the land and what would work and what wouldn't, Shar was outstanding, she made us feel comfortable and we received our wrap up video before we woke up the next day. I am confident in her ability and know she captured the best moments. My bridal attending, Sheyla was our life savor!! She was with me every step of the day, my husband and I kept commenting how awesome she was, we were on the dance floor and she kept bringing us water. She sewed/fixed my bustle, she had hair spray and anything else I may have needed at the drop of a hat. She personally brought us food to the bridal suite.Sent on 11/03/2020
I wanted to get married at Florentine since I was 19 years old, covid threw a big wrench in my plan however I was still able to live out my dream wedding and I wouldn't have changed a thing!

The best wedding venue!
We can't thank Florentine enough for helping us have the wedding of our dreams!! We would recommend The Estate at Florentine Gardens to anyone! My husband and I were married on September 27, 2020. Denise and her team made sure our day was absolutely perfect. Our cocktail hour and reception were both outside under the gorgeous tent space. One of the main reasons we chose Florentine Gardens was for the beautiful outdoor space and elegant feel of the grounds. Our guests were able to enjoy the beauty of the estate from the cocktail hour all the way to the outdoor after-party. The food was amazing and very abundant!Sent on 10/11/2020
Denise was our wedding consultant and was by our side for the entire wedding process. She is seriously the best around! Denise was so informative and so easy to talk to. She answered all of our questions and eased all of our worries. She helped us with decisions big and small, from making our cocktail hour and dinner selections, to helping us through the difficult decision to postpone our wedding day (our original wedding day was July 4, 2020).
We used many of the Florentine recommended vendors, which were all amazing to work with. Sal Travis and his videographer Jesse created us the most amazing wrap up video and the House Band kept everyone dancing all night!
Our bridal attendant Kerry and maitre d Jeffrey were the best! Kerry was so attentive to both me and my husband. From making sure we always had a drink in hand, to helping me bustle my dress, to making sure we ate dinner, Kerry was awesome! Jeffery kept us on schedule and ensured our guests had a great night.
We thank the entire Florentine team for the most amazing and memorable day!

An Amazing Venue for the Wedding of Your Dreams
We recently had our daughter's wedding at The Estate at Florentine Gardens. We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful venue. From start to finish, everything was perfect. We are still receiving compliments from our guests as to how delicious the food was and what great service they received. Maria was wonderful throughout the planning. She was helpful and patient and took care of every detail. Sal arranged for the entertainment, and he was just wonderful to work with. DJ Tony Gia was great, and I would also highly recommend Shar, the videographer. My daughter's bridal attendant, Sheyla, was so helpful and attentive throughout the entire day. Perfection is the way I can describe Florentine Gardens!Sent on 11/18/2020
