Had my wedding here 12.13.15 and it was absolutely amazing. The setting couldn’t be more beautiful and the photographs came out amazing. The large porch was a perfect place to relax and enjoy my reception with my guests. I had about 40 guests and there was ample room. The porch swing on the covered porch was a nice touch, too! The website does not give this venue justice….when you see it in person, it is a million times more beautiful! The lake was a beautiful backdrop for our pics and ceremony! Gary gave us a beautiful ceremony with his sweet laid back demeanor! I loved that he was smiling in all of our photographs and you can really tell that he loves what he does. My husband and I had the best day of our life getting married at the secret garden and I would highly recommend it ! Tina


  * My officiant and photography services are available at others locations. Additional fees may be required depending on the location. *Some restrictions apply – call for details.

 The wedding couple is required to present a valid Florida marriage license prior the the ceremony by Florida state law.

These wedding packages are similar to a courthouse marriage except these are exclusively performed by Rev. Gary Davids at “The Secret Garden” in Longwood with it’s beautiful outdoor garden setting. The Secret Garden is perfect for *up to 40 people. We offer these great deals for those who use our exclusive officiating and photography services.

Here are some pie charts that will help give you a good idea of time flow for each package you may be considering.

These times are only approximates and may differ based upon the number of guests attending and actual arrival times. You may opt to use more or less time for each event but from experience they are very realistic. Please call if you have any questions.

Setup and Decorations

The garden is beautiful as is but we realize that sometimes our guests like to personalize the event with decorations and catering, cake, etc.. Please check with us to see what is allowable and keep in mind that any set up or breakdown time must be figured into the time you contract.

Thank you.
