Our wedding at the Secret Garden was March 20, 2021 and it was absolutely perfect. Honestly, the entire "wedding planning" period wasn't stressful at all. I kept feeling like I wasn't doing something right because I wasn't stressed. Nope, they just make it that easy for you! The day of, we did not have to worry about LITERALLY one thing with the venue. I couldn't believe it. Sammy and the team took care of EVERYTHING. They set the venue up with my decorations exactly how I wanted it and it looked beautiful. They are a power house. It was the wedding of our dreams. All of our guests raved about the beautiful, unique venue and the AMAZING food. One guest came up to us and said "wow I totally get the name of this venue... It's truly a secret beautiful garden hidden right on Baseline road". It's seriously a magical place and we are so happy we chose it as our venue. Thank you guys for giving us the perfect day, we will cherish it foreverSent on 03/30/2021

HIRE THIS VENUE! This venue is great beyond measure. The staff is impeccable and everything in between. Stepheny was my main coordinator but she left in December 2020 and Samantha took over as my new coordinator. When I say the transition was smooth I mean it! It did not feel like I was getting a new wedding coordinator because Samantha new EVERY SINGLE DETAIL. The communication and professionalism of the venue and its staff is top notch. Stepheny and Samantha were there every step of the way answering all my emails, calls, texts and whatever else I needed. They made sure we had our day despite having to postpone due to covid. Our 12/20/2020 wedding was everything I could ask for and more. So many thank you's to every single person who made our day special at the Secret garden Event Center. The venue is absolutely breath taking and the picture perfect place to make wonderful memories of any kind. DEFINITELY RECOMMEND SECRET GARDEN EVENT CENTER THEY ARE AWESOME!!!!!!Sent on 12/21/2020

Like a Dream
The Secret Garden Event Center was both the easiest and best decision I made when choosing our venue. Who knew 1 month after signing our contract the world would turn upside down and face this awful, ongoing pandemic. However, Secret Garden Event staff did not skip a beat. They did everything possible to ensure my vision was met. They were patient and addressed all of my concerns in order to meet my vision. Both Stepheny and Sammy the event coordinators were AMAZING.
Sammy, a former bride herself understood all the fears/concerns I was going through.
Stepheny was incredible the day of the wedding. She was happy and upbeat and helped me to have a beautiful and memorable day.
Chef Doug and his wife Camille went over and beyond for me as a bride and our families. They were supportive and encouraging along the way. The food was delicious and presentation was incredible.
They helped to fulfill the wedding of my dreams amidst a pandemic.
All of there health measures helped to ensure the safety of my guests.
The grounds are well maintained and it made for a beautiful garden lush wedding.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for making this day possible!
