A new entrance makeover at the Secret Garden was in order now that the vine needed cutting back. A clean new start with a pergola appeal. We also took advantage of the summer heat to clean each and every rock in the stream water feature near the bridge. After cleaning out the pond liner and pond basin we sat above it all on the back deck and enjoyed one of our beautiful mid summer evening sunsets and watched the baby ducks exploring the lake shore. We hope you enjoy your visit with us at The Secret Garden for your destination wedding or elopement in Central Florida just minutes from the Disney area and attraction theme parks.
Would you like to add some mingling time and dinner to your elopement package?
Although we do not provide kitchen use or indoor dining, we do however have a large beautiful screened patio that overlooks the garden and lake view. We have several great restaurants close by that either accommodate delivery service or have take out cuisine that you can pick up. By extending your time at The Secret Garden you can now dine at the same location that you said your wedding vows.
Here are some restaurants nearby that we personally LOVE. Feel free to contact them and see if they appeal to you.

Thailicious – Thai
Bonefish Grill – Seafood
Chianti’s Pizza and Pasta – Italian

Congratulations to LaMarcus and Denise married today at the Secret Garden. You two are a blessing to us as are so many of the guests that find us on the web. We hope to see you again if you ever pass through town in the future. God bless you always and thank you for asking to include a prayer blessing over your marriage prior to your union as husband and wife.
Just Perfect! We were welcomed here by Gary and Marti on 4th Feb for our wedding and we will always treasure our happy memories. The location is just beautiful and we were made to feel like old friends in this wonderful venue. We cried happy tears throughout the meaningful ceremony then giggled like kids all the way through the photographs! It was just so much better than I ever imagined and the photographs are wonderful. We are forever grateful that we chose the Secret Garden to elope during our holiday in Florida. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a small intimate wedding and once again our sincere thanks and best wishes to Gary and Marti. xx
These shoes tell a story. Irregular Choice shoes are expressive and fun and are made of intricate design and lavish fabrics. Caroline and Michael made their destination wedding in Orlando at Disney and tied the knot at The Secret Garden in Orlando. “What a wonderful and fun couple that we had the pleasure of meeting and providing our wedding services for”.
We talked about their lives back home in the UK before the ceremony and we look forward to seeing them return just to catch up on their next visit to Florida.
Congratulations and we wish you many more years of wedded bliss.

The staff is friendly & fun. All of my expectations were exceeded. Thank you so much for your hospitality! Read our blog by clicking this link.
This place was wonderful. I can’t say enough how happy I was with the beautiful photos and this couple is the sweetest! We weren’t rushed through. They were so kind and we were all alone and they made the whole day so special. Everything was exactly how I hoped it would be and more ! I would recommend this place to anyone. Beautiful location, wonderful people, lovely photos !! Can’t say enough wonderful things.
My husband Paul and I knew early on in our engagement we did not want a big wedding. We did not want all the attention. We did not want all the stress. We did not want to spend all the money. We wanted a marriage. With that said, I still kind of wanted to wear a dress and have photos, so finding The Secret Garden was a blessing. We had the perfect ceremony and love all the photos. Whenever friends get engaged, I show them the photos and tell them how perfect it was, encouraging them not to spend their entire life savings on one day, when they can instead have the perfect day for the perfect price, at The Secret Garden.

Wow!!! We can not be more happier with this venue, their pricing, friendly owners, beautiful grounds. Bill and I were looking for a beautiful place to elope to with our small family in tow. We sure did find it here. The location and grounds are beautiful and such a beautiful back drop to be married at with the water in the background and the moss hanging from the trees. A true picture of the south. I would have not done anything different with our choice of wedding venue. We loved the calm, relaxed atmosphere of our wedding and officiant. They made us laugh and cry and the vows that they have for you to choose from will connect with you and your spouse. My husband and I had a moment in the middle of the service and it was so wonderful that they stopped and allowed us to live in that moment. Thank you for such a wonderful and memorable wedding.
