We adore the Secret Garden!
An amazing venue!
They were amazing from start to finish, showing so much attention to detail and making it such a fun experience throughout the whole wedding process! We are so grateful to have gotten married here!
Julie and Laura worked closely with us to create something truly unique and special. Kristina and Brian captured the feel and all of the emotions of our special day so we were able to relive it again!
Thank you so much for making our day even more perfect and special than we could have imagined!
The Secret Garden- a Truly Special Venue
The venue itself is spacious, but feels peaceful and intimate. We held our wedding ceremony in the garden, which was absolutely beautiful. Our guests also enjoyed exploring, taking photos, and playing lawn games on the grounds during cocktail hour. The indoor reception space is also ample and lovely, particularly once decorated and filled with loved ones. The fact that the Secret Garden has both an indoor and covered, outdoor patio on the property also provided reassurance that our wedding day wouldn't have to be compromised in the event of rainy weather.
The wedding package offered by the Secret Garden is pretty much all-inclusive and top notch in terms of quality and care. The caterer, photographer, DJ, bartender, service staff, as well as the wedding coordination team took time to understand our vision for our wedding day, offered thoughtful and creative ideas, and went above and beyond to make the planning process as well as our big day went off without a hitch. In the months leading up to our wedding, friends and family would often ask us if we were feeling stressed by the wedding preparations. Our answer was always a grateful "No- not at all!" because of how seamlessly the Secret Garden/Epic Events team managed the entire process.
The wedding package pricing was also very transparent and reasonable, given all of the services and event items (tables, chairs, decor, lighting...so much!) that are included. They also provided wonderful recommendations for vendors not included in the wedding package, such as florists, bakers, entertainers, etc.
A huge thanks to Christian, Julie, Laura, Bianca, Allie, DJ Shy, the Eco Caters Team, and Jerri Disney (florist extraordinaire!) for making our wedding day so joyful, stress-free, and meaningful! You are an amazing team and have created a truly special place at the Secret Garden.
