We are one of the Premier waterfront wedding venues in Orlando, Florida. We are pleased to say we have been providing beautiful wedding memories at our Secret Garden outdoor garden location for over 18 years.

5 Star Review from Erikica below.

We just got back to Michigan from our elopement at The Secret Garden!!! Gary and his wife were so kind, welcoming, patient with the last minute time switches and we were running late and they helped me remain calm throughout!!! The place was absolutely magical, breathtaking and timeless. Our pictures came back almost immediately and she really out did herself, capturing us perfectly. We will treasure our wedding day forever and these beautiful pictures!! I can’ not say enough good things about our experience and Bruce the videographer they recommended!

Thank you Erikica. Gary and Marti

Signature Live Oak frames out new ceremony area

Our Signature Live Oak frames out our new remodel of our main ceremony area. With last years hurricane water damage we needed to repair our pergola or go for something new so we went with new. It actually has a more contemporary look as well as having the appearance of looking larger. In any case we are happy with the change and we hope you are as well.

Covid Effects on Wedding Planning in Orlando

The Covid Effects on Wedding Planning in Orlando have been noticeable however not terrible since we live in one of the best states for weather, destination weddings and some of the best stats for the public health. The biggest impact has been people not being allowed to travel by air and leave their own lockdown restriction locations. We are happy to say that since much of that has been lifted we have been providing engaged couples throughout the pandemic with the finest wedding services especially since our venue is an outside garden. We overlook a beautiful serene lake and we are the perfect location for an intimate or small private wedding or quick elopement. Our packages include the essential services of the minister and photographer. You will receive all of the high res digital images including the copyright within 24 to 48 hours after your event.
