    Great venue and team!

    We had such a great experience with this venue. The outdoor/indoor spaces were beautiful and the food was tasty but the biggest thing that stood out about the Secret Garden was their team. The planning team tracked all of our details in an organized way, offered advice on experiences they had from prior weddings regarding what looked/worked best, and most importantly, they made the big day go off without any issues or unnecessary stress! The banquet leader helped make sure our guests with dietary restrictions were fed safely and many guests commented on how fast the food service was (we did plated meals). We went with the Elite package and loved having the photo booth and very personable bartender. The groom and I were so happy with how well the wedding, cocktail hour, dinner, and reception went. We couldn't think of a single detail that could have been better. I'm sure I'm forgetting some details but the moral of the story is that we would highly recommend this venue to any couple.

    Book Secret Garden as your wedding venue!


    I only have awesome things to say about the Secret Garden! The venue is beautiful but the staff is what makes the venue exceptional. The entire process was so smooth, we were guided through scheduled meetings and each meeting was extremely detailed to make sure they understood my vision and could make it come to life. They were extremely responsive and helpful to all of my questions. The venue is beautiful (especially at night) - I recommend the 'dining under the stars' option. The food was wonderful, all my guests mentioned it after the wedding. Thank you to the Secret Garden for making our wedding vision come true and making our day so special!

    Gorgeous place, amazing staff

    I’m so glad we had our wedding here, all of our guests agree that it was a gorgeous place to get married. The staff at the venue were all so kind and helpful, they really make you feel special and take the load off on your day. Planning was easier with them due to the all inclusive options at the venue, and on others by wedgewood.
