It is hard to put into words, I've been speechless all day. This venue is PERFECT and anyone looking for a small intimate ceremony stop your search here. We wanted something more elegant than the court house but more affordable than other venues we had priced. Gary and Marti made our day more than magical. I thought we would leave with only 20-30 pics but ending with over 100 & got them back same day before bedtime. I brought my "shot list" but didn't even need it because Marti KNOWS all of the perfect shots. They were fun, caring, and although they had ideas they always asked for our input and what we wanted. Wish I could live today over and over again. Thank you!!!!Sent on 08/28/2019

We wanted a small, very intimate wedding, but we wanted to have beautiful pictures with which to remember our day. When we discovered The Secret Garden online, we knew we had found a hidden treasure. We felt even better after meeting with Gary ahead of time to confirm our choice. I hear so much about brides who stress terribly before their weddings, but this was perfect - all I needed to arrange was the cake and the bouquet/boutonniere. Everything else was included for our sweet and tiny ceremony, which was Gary was happy to modify as we requested.Sent on 12/09/2018
The day went off perfectly, with little stress. Gary and Marti were wonderful and patient through all of the pictures, even when the groom's best friend and wife ran late and we needed to reshoot the group pics. The garden is lush and green and the lake makes a wonderful backdrop.
Within days we received the link to our fabulous pictures! I couldn't have asked for better! Those who have seen them have been amazed at the value for the money.
I have already recommended The Secret Garden to others in search of a small intimate wedding.

Having been together for 30 years, we thought that we could get married in Florida whilst on holiday. There were so many venues and packages available for extortionate prices and far too flamboyant for a couple who do not enjoy being the centre of attention.Sent on 08/28/2017
After much searching,it didn't seem like we would find a small and intimate venue, until we came across the website for the Secret Garden in Longwood,Florida.
Following the information on the website, we contacted Reverend Gary, via email, 3 months before our holiday. Almost instantly, we received a response and provisionally reserved a date for our elopement marriage. Email correspondence was swiftly answered,often within minutes, with clear guidance, even receiving a reminder email a couple of days before the planned date.
On the day, we encountered endless traffic delays and arrived at the house in a slightly flustered state. Both Gary and his wife Marti welcomed us into their home, made us and our sons feel at ease before explaining how the ceremony would be conducted.
The photographs on the website do not give the location the justice required. The area where the ceremony is conducted in the garden is set on the boundaries of the truly tranquil and idilic location of Lake Ruth.
The ceremony by Gary was followed by photographs (also during the ceremony) being taken by Gary's wife, Marti. At all times, we were made to feel at ease.
Waiting for us on return from our holiday were the wedding license/certificate and over 60 photographs which can be shared with family members and friends.
Giving a rating of 5 stars seem inadequate and would be more than happy to double it . Highly recommended.
Thank you, both!
