We have booked this beautiful venue for our upcoming wedding. From the moment you arrive you feel like you have been transported to this magical place that has come alive from a Shakespearean novel. It truly is gorgeous and Hildie is absolutely wonderful! I cant wait to get married under there huge tree and have our dinner in there open plan garden. It really is breathtaking!Sent on 01/16/2015

Waldo's Secret Garden is truly a magical place!! Can I live there?! It's so unique and filled with such wonderful surprises that I can't imagine getting married anywhere else. Our photographers were so enchanted by the place that they said they had never seen anything like it. They want to come back for a style shoot!Sent on 05/01/2015
Charlotte, Hildy and Mark were all so kind to us.
I was so pleased with how they allowed us to use our own vendors - but also gave suggestions. We actually ended up finding our caterer through them, which we LOVED.
It was pretty warm the day we married but they have fans placed all over the reception area, which was well planned.
There were a lot of items that were already available at the location, like signs, the arbor for our ceremony and the gorgeous mahogany tables and chairs. Those tables! <3333
Since the location is a private residence you do need to ensure you make appointments with the owners and give them a few days to respond to e-mail. I also encouraged my guests to wear flats, sandals or wedges on our wedding website and in person as much as possible. It made the difference as many of my guests would have worn heels on grassy ground - no bueno.
If you're tired of the same old banquet hall, country club cookie-cutter wedding - GO HERE! It's everything about old Florida that you love.

Waldo's Secret Garden is a beautiful, magical venue! It feels like you are stepping into a different world when you are there, something that made my wedding feel special and unique. Guests love looking around and experiencing the venue! I love the old Florida feel with all of the natural greenery and rustic/antique elements that are around the venue. The Tripsons are a kind, helpful, and laid back family. Also, the ability to get ready, have the ceremony, and have the reception all at the same place is so nice and easy! Waldo's Secret Garden will forever have my heart!Sent on 06/16/2014
