    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!

    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!
