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

After looking at several different wedding venues and being tired of the corporate, cookie cutter style venues, my fiancé and I were starting to feel defeated. I had received a recommendation to check out the secret garden. Upon arrival we both were taken back by the beautiful garden and whimsical feel. My fiancé was sold on the dance floor. It’s far larger than any others we looked at and that was his selling point lol. We met with Julie and she was amazing! So kind and helpful. She really wanted to get to know us and provided a no pressure sales pitch, which was truly a breath of fresh air! It didn’t take long for us to decided this was the place for us. The package is all inclusive (photography, florist, DJ, catering, and a wedding coordinator!!!) we have met them all and they are all beyond kind! We had the pleasure of doing our engagement photos with Jennifer. I’ve never had a photoshoot and was unsure what to expect. She wanted to get to know our style before, so I shared a board with her on Pinterest. She duplicated all of my favorite poses, plus several additional. She truly has amazing talent and the pictures turned out far better than we ever imagined! I cannot wait to see how our wedding turns out!Sent on 08/31/2018

Want a magical wedding ? Look no further !
Omg where do I start! My husband and I got married here on October 6th in a wedding that exceeded our expectations. Christian, Julie, Haley, Jerri, Jane, Dan- you guys are the perfect team. We couldn't have asked for more. Everyone on the event planning team listened to my every wish and created the most perfect day for us and for all our friends and family.Sent on 10/20/2018
Christian, Julie and Haley are the ultimate planning team! Quick to respond, always ready to help and super generous with throwing in extras for us to make our dream come true.
Jerri is a wizard with florals. She looked at my Pinterest board and created centerpieces, bouquets and altar flowers exactly how I wanted. It was perfect !!!!!
Jane is the best photographer ever. She makes you feel so comfortable and I cannot wait to see the photos she's got of our special day.
Dan - the DJ and MC is great at listening to you, suggesting music if you don't have set choices and he kept our guests dancing all night long.
Epic Events- we are so glad we found you, if we could do it all over we would pick you a 100 times. The Secret Garden is perfect for anyone and if you are thinking about having your wedding here I 100% recommend it. You will not regret it!
