Spectacular Wedding for my daughter and son-in-law

The Estate at Florentine Gardens delivered an absolutely stunning and spectacular affair for our daughter's and son-in-law's wedding. The attention to detail was "over the top". From 7:00AM, Friday, September 22, 2023 to 12:00AM, Saturday, September 23, 2024 we were treated like royalty. The Bridal attendant, Legia, was terrific and she was by our daughter's side the entire day while helping all of the women who are important to the bride prepare for the day as well. Christopher was serving the groom and all of the men who are important to the groom all day. Christopher also made sure that the people close to the bride and groom had everything they needed all day. The Bride & Groom hired Sal Travis to create their wedding video and he did an amazing job producing a most fabulous "wrap-up" video at the end of the night that is incredibly good quality and captured all of the beautiful details and love of the wedding day. This video was displayed at the end of the night for the bride and groom to share with all of their guests. Denise Downing made sure the bride's and groom's wishes were fulfilled. I highly recommend The Estate at Florentine Gardens to anyone interested in having a wedding in north New Jersey.

The BEST day of our lives!!!

Our wedding was last night at the Florentine Gardens. We were completely blown away with how amazing it was. Sal, Tony the DJ, and Jesse made our reception one that our guests CANNOT stop talking about. Kerry our bridal attendant was such a huge help and was unbelievably attentive. Our maitre鈥檇 George was so awesome at making sure everything was on schedule. Jesse the videographer made our video that I have watched at least 10 times already. Denise the coordinator made us feel like family from the very first minute we walked through the doors for a tour. She has been pivotal in making our dreams come true and helping us along the way.

We had the most beautiful time, the venue is breathtaking, and we are so incredibly thankful for the Florentine Gardens and all their staff who helped make our day as perfect as it was.

The most amazing venue in NJ!!!

I can't begin to describe how this venue was everything and more. My words would certainly fail me. From the first phone call with Ciro, to the venue tour...I was awed by the absolute, stunning beauty of Florentine. Ciro was THE BEST to my fiance and I and by the end of our tour, he made us never want to look at any other venue. We just had to book. Sal was so warm and inviting and offers the most unique and unbelieveable entertainment package that leaves your wedding as your talk of the town. OF YOU ARE READING THIS, THE RECAP VIDEO IS WHAT YOU NEED!!! It's been two days and I've already watched it hundreds of times! Thank you Shar for the most amazing videos and being so fun to work with!! Such wonderful work. Samantha my event coordinator was just a dream to work with. Answering emails and messages and ensuring that everything went smoothly was the icing on the cake for me. Upon my arrival...Leegia, the bridal attendant, was the friend I never knew I needed. She was just awesome and professional and maintained this for the entire day. Even if she had to run back and forth one hundred times, she was just so sweet and reassuring. She even has a bridal survival kit! Such a beautiful soul. And then came George, the maitre d, who simply perfected all the details of the night. Very responsive and attentive and kept our wedding in order. The servers and kitchen staff were just top tier in their service. The entire staff at Florentine Gardens made our wedding an absolute dream come true. My guests were certainly floored by how beautiful the venue was. We love you all at Florentine so very much. You've made us truly happy and we couldn't ask more. If you've made it this far in reading my review....MAKE THAT CALL!!!
