Jason was the coordinator, he was helpful and responsive. We used the in house entertainment of sal and DJ tony. They were wonderful and kind. The bridal assistant Sheyla did everything that I did not have to think about anything. The wedding was wonderful and days later people cannot stop talking about it.Sent on 10/14/2019

Beyond perfection! A true fairytale!
Ciro, Tom, Maria and the entire team at the Florentine Gardens (including Sal, George and Lila) are truly amazing and made us feel like familiy from day one. The wedding was everything that we could have imagined and more. The food, the band, the bridal suite, and the attention to detail were immaculate. I always dreamed of a fairytale wedding, and the Florentine Gardens made that dream a true reality. A huge shout to Ciro for taking us under his wing and helping us create this beyond perfect event. Thank you so much!!!Sent on 09/26/2019

Tom, Denise, Sheyla and the whole team at the Florentine Gardens are truly exceptional people! From the moment we stepped in to the venue and met with Tom to do the tour of the venue he treated myself, my husband and my parents like family. He then introduced us to Denise who took over from there. She was simply amazing throughout the whole entire experience! Our wedding was everything we imagined and more! It truly was a magical night! Our guest are still raving how phenomenal all the food was, the service from each and everyone of the staff and how every little detail was beautifully done! A month later and my guest are still saying by far one of the BEST weddings they’ve been too! You don’t understand how happy that makes me feel! From the cocktail hour, the dinner that was served and Venetian hour it was all outstanding! They made our guest feel so welcomed and made sure they were taken care of in every way! My 4 year old niece (our flower girl ) must of asked for 5 different plates of food (Haha )during cocktail hour including ice cream and they got it with no hesitation! Our wrap up video done by the Florentine Gardens was incredible!! Sheyla my bridal assistant was a true gem! She followed me around from morning to night catering to all of our needs and making sure we were a 100% throughout the whole day and night!!! The Bridal Suite is gorgeous!! The Florentine Gardens is absolutely a stunning establishment and we couldn’t of asked for anything more!! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!!Sent on 10/14/2019
