Covid Effects on Wedding Planning in Orlando

Shannon and Michael

It was a pleasure to meet our newest clients and their beautiful children. Michael and Shannon were married here at the Secret Garden. They are local from South Florida and enjoyed a theme park weekend while they were here.
The weather was perfect for an outdoor wedding.

Their photos were ready before they even returned home. We always have the bride and grooms memories ready the day after the wedding if not sooner.

Vow renewals are also popular here at the Secret Garden especially for those that live locally in Florida.

We thank this wonderful couple for choosing our location and we always look forward to meeting new friends this way.

Perfect wedding location for your intimate ceremony

Thinking about the perfect wedding location for your intimate ceremony, look no further.

So here we are February 3, 2020. It’s a beautiful sunny 50° morning at the Secret Garden. The orchids and all of the flowers are in bloom and it’s a beautiful week ahead forecasted.

a beautiful sunny 50° morning at the Secret Garden.

So many people comment on the beautiful bamboo planted a mere eight years ago. It is now close to 50 feet tall and makes a beautiful backdrop for the main ceremony area. This is just one reason why we are the perfect wedding location for your intimate ceremony.

Statues adorn the garden throughout as well as the rustic architecture.

A favorite in the garden is definitely the Spanish hanging moss. Flowing gently in the year-round breeze like ornamental garland.

From hibiscus to poinsettias the garden is always beautiful and a perfect backdrop for photos.

We look forward to seeing you soon and answering any questions you may have. Our 2020 pricing and package options are unbeatable.

Inclement weather back up plan

Being located in Central Florida we are frequently asked if we have an inclement weather back up plan?

The answer to that is absolutely yes. It depends on the size of your event. First let me say that the weather in Florida is unlike a lot of regions around the country. Since we are a peninsula inserted between the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic ocean we experience rapidly changing weather patterns. That is not to say that we don’t know what’s coming. It is to say that when rain comes it usually comes and goes quickly.

Our back up plan is a screened in patio. It can easily accommodate 10 to 15 people for the elopement packages. It is also suitable for a larger group to duck out of a passing shower.

We offer something that not many venues will do. That is even if your event is canceled the day before we allow you to reschedule within one year from your original event date without losing any money.

Below you can see a couple of pictures of our screened in patio. It overlooks the garden and still has a very beautiful outdoor ambience.
