We had our wedding at the Secret Garden on September 3rd. From the day that we went to the first open house and decided to book with them through the wedding day itself was a fantastic experience. They were quick to respond anytime we reached out with questions, especially as we got much closer to the wedding day which helped ease our stress. The entire team is so friendly and accommodating, I couldn't have asked for a better group to be there for us during planning. My husband and I are incredibly grateful for Monica and all of that she did for us throughout this process. We highly recommend this beautiful location for any event!

Amazing venue, staff, and catering service!
We had such a wonderful wedding at this venue! 65 guests in total, had it on a Sunday, with ceremony and cocktail hour outdoors and reception indoors in the hall. Everyone loved the food (plated dinner with filet mignon and salmon), service, and bartenders. The entire staff was so attentive on the day of and made sure my wife and I were taken care of and that any request we made was handled within seconds. Carina was our venue coordinator and she did a great job! We hired an outside wedding coordinator both the coordinator and Carina worked well with each other! The DJ company they work with are fantastic and they have so many great wedding packages to choose from. The venue itself is gorgeous and does not feel like one of those cookie cutter venues or plain venues that requires a ton of decorations. You can choose to let the venue shine on its own or add your own touches here and there without breaking the bank. We definitely recommend this venue for anyone looking for a small or medium-large wedding!

Carina was everything we could have hoped for in a wedding coordinator!
Carina was absolutely indispensable. We were so fortunate to have her at the helm for the months leading up to the wedding and of course for the rehearsal and day of! My husband and I were in the somewhat unique position of booking Secret Garden years before for a wedding that fell through due to family circumstances, so we've been familiar with this venue for a long time (and thankful for the owner's flexibility in allowing us to rebook). Our eventual wedding date finally arrived and after years of anticipation and months of frenzied preparation and planning, everything went off without a hitch. We credit Carina with ensuring so many small details were attended to with precision and that everyone was relaxed and enjoying themselves. We received so many compliments from our guests as well as other wedding vendors about how organized the operation was and how smoothly everything was handled at every level. Having spent so long fantasizing about our "perfect" wedding (we've been together for over ten years) and all the personalized touches we hoped to incorporate, it was a joy to see our dream realized and to be surrounded by loved ones on the best day of our lives, knowing everything was under control. The experience was meaningful, intimate, fun and we never felt stressed out or overburdened. Guests loved being able to circulate between the patio, bar and fireplace area and the noisier ballroom over the course of the night. There was just the right amount of space for us to interact with everyone without feeling hemmed in. Above all, we cannot say enough nice things about Carina. She worked so hard and we are endlessly grateful for her efforts! You can really tell when you go through the process of planning a wedding who is actually invested in your event going well, and Carina was such a pro from start to finish -- radiating calm, quick to respond to questions and just a joy to work with every step of the way. She set my nerves at ease immediately and that sense of encouragement and support never wavered. All our friends and relatives who interacted with her adored her. Thank you for everything!
Many of our brides, including one of our stylists, have gotten married there and LOVED them!
