Intimate Home Garden Wedding

Welcome to the home page of “The Secret Garden” in Longwood, Florida. We invite you to consider having your marriage ceremony at this beautiful and intimate home garden site only 20 minutes from downtown Orlando. Close to hotels, restaurants and attractions. A great alternative to a courthouse wedding.

Our “private” outdoor garden as shown in the photos is situated on a private 14 acre lake and is surrounded by natural beauty and landscapes. The house on this property was built originally in 1963 and has been renovated in 2000 and decorated with an antique charm. For a bit of history, Sky King used to come to the local fish fry’s here on the lake in the 1960’s and Ronald Reagan Blvd used to be a one lane dirt road and was called the Sanford to Tampa Highway. Well things have certainly changed here since then. We are just one mile from the historic downtown Longwood shops and the new Sun Rail station. The Secret Garden is the best secret in Longwood.

I must admit….Most folks only get married once. I had my reservations about attempting a feat such as this, but after a few conversations with Gary, he made the process very simple and easy for an out-of-towner. My wedding was exactly the way I wanted it, super simple! It turned out amazing! And I’m in love with my photos. I’d like to thank Rev Davids and his wife Marti for opening their home to me and my guests, and I’d recommend this to anyone interested in doing an elopement of small intimate wedding. Carla and Chip
