    Cannot recommend enough!

    So happy we decided to go with The Florentine for our reception vendor—I cannot recommend them enough! The Florentine was always my dream venue, but I thought they'd be way out of my price range. Luckily, I was very wrong! Having the florist, bakery, and catering all combined actually made everything so much easier since I didn't have a wedding planner. And I cannot say enough about the food—INCREDIBLE! We had tacos as our main and churros for our "groom's cake" and both were some of the best I've ever had. We've had so many people tell us the last few weeks what an amazing time they had and how amazing the food was. I would choose The Florentine over and over again!

    The Florentine is the perfect reception venue. Caroline, the Event Coordinator, is a God send. She was a pleasure to work with, was incredibly knowledgeable and responsive, and completely understood my vision and brought it to life. The food was delicious, the cake was amazing, and every detail of the night was exactly as I planned it. Michael, the florist is an artist and one of the most kindhearted vendors we worked with. I cannot say enough good things about this whole experience. We had a seated dinner and there were enough servers that it never felt like anyone was waiting too long to get their food. The bartenders were great as well. We opted for valet service for our guests, which I would recommend. I did not have to worry about a single aspect of the night. Caroline worked with our DJ to keep the night on track and with our parents to get our gifts and decorations sent home with them at the end of the night, so I could just relax and enjoy the reception. We loved it!

    The Florentine is an absolutely classicaly beautiful venue. The historic building has been renovated exquisitely. The Florentine is great for one stop shopping, they offer catering, rentals, floral, and cakes in house. They also have an in house coordinator Caroline who is great at keeping the event organized and running smoothly. They do allow outside vendors for a few if you wish to go outside of their in house vendors. I would definitely recommend the Florentine Building for anyone looking for a classic but unique wedding venue.
