The BEST owners & staff/stunning venue - You'll feel like family from the very start
The Secret Garden / Epic Events staff was absolutely amazing to work with. They truly made us feel like a part of their family from the moment we met. They allowed us to make our wedding dreams come true, within a very reasonable budget. Their entire business model was created to give couples the wedding of their dreams, without ripping them off with inflated prices. They were so responsive throughout the entire process that we didn't end up hiring a wedding planner. This is the group of people you NEED surrounding you during what can be an incredibly stressful time. The Secret Garden itself is so charming and unique, our photos are absolutely stunning. Cant say enough positive things! Even if you are curious, contact their staff for a tour and introduction! You will immediately feel the care and heart they pour into each couple they work with. After touring more than 10 other venues in San Diego I am so happy we chose to work with The Secret Garden!!!Sent on 10/03/2019

Look no further this is the best place to be for a wedding. Any bride would love the outcome of their wedding here. The most important thing if you read this review is to trust the team there they are excellent they are remarkable they know what they are doing a big will execute whatever your heart desires. Jerri the florist is a magnificent! Daniel is wonderful! If you don’t have a vision if you don’t know what to do just talk to them they are very friendly they feel like family once you’re done talking with them they sit down and just get to know you and it’s just an amazing feeling and I wish that I had let go some of my anxiety because they took it all away and the day was just perfect I recommend this place 1 million times.Sent on 09/17/2020

BEST day and experience!!
From the first meeting to our actual wedding day, my husband and I absolutely loved our experience with epic events and would do it all over again just the same! We recommend this venue and team to anyone who is looking for a smooth and organized wedding planning process. The venue is beautiful and has great indoor and outdoor space. Also, it isn't too shabby having one of the biggest dance floors I've seen. The owners, Julie and Christian love what they do and it shows in the way they treat their clients and invest in getting to know you. Like all other reviews they truly make you feel like family from the moment you meet. That only then bleeds out to the rest of the staff as all the different teams brought such great energy and became instant friends. We had a specific budget and they were very clear and honest with prices. The package is amazing and we were able to choose alternative catering. Don't hesitate to ask any questions! They never pressured us and only supported and got excited about our vision and needs! Also, the florist, Jerri went above and beyond with the flowers and design. I was able to bring in my own decorative items to personalize it and never felt stuck in a box. All the teams (coordination, florist, DJ, and photography) work towards the same goal of creating the best day of your life. Their experience, friendship with one another, and epic forms and google docs (which my husband, who is the master of excel really appreciated) made it no question that every part of the wedding ran smoothly. I could go on and on about each staff member we worked with and couldn't be more thankful for this team and the work they do!Sent on 04/01/2020
