Secret Garden is an outstanding wedding venue! I had my wedding at there in April of 2017 and I couldn’t be more impressed with the staff and the venue. Our guests loved the location and we thought it was absolutely beautiful. From the structure and the big tree, to the carriage house, to dinner under the stars and the elegant pavilion, we had amazing event; it was a true romantic, garden experience. We first met with Gina in December of 2015 and she showed us she was professional and cared about our wedding. The Secret Garden staff was very accommodating throughout the entire process and they were eager to build the experience we wanted for our wedding. We utilized the entire property to give our guests a unique taste for each part of the evening. The staff also worked with us on what we wanted to do for the ceremony and gave us new ideas. The meetings we had with them were personal and I truly felt like we were a priority. When we had our tasting with Creative Hands Cuisine, Doug blew us away with the food he presented. In addition, he was able to build some options for our menu that were personal to families’ heritages. I am so grateful to Gina and the Secret Garden team for contributing to our event and helping make it a success. The quality of service was incredible and I appreciate their flexibility with our event.
The Secret Garden and their entire staff , Maggie, Alexis their cooks and even their maintenance man , are very professional and helpful. My fiance and I picked the Secret Garden for our venue and planned a wedding for March 2017, however we found out we are expecting , so we moved our date to January ( so I can fit in my dress , which was already purchased ). And Alexis my coordinator was SUPER helpful in going over our options, and they have always gotten back to us in a timely manner. As for previous comments about the price and appearance of this venue. Our total is coming to just under 9 thousand, including everything except the photographer and florist. And if you do any REAL venue searching , you will find that for the price, and how cute this place is and accommodating they are, its a no brainer ,its a gorgeous venue with great landscape and a beautiful building, which will make for beautiful photos. I will update this review after our big day in January , I have no doubt with many more great things to say!
We had our wedding at the Secret Garden 3 weeks ago, and it was beyond anything we imagined. We loved the venue the first time we went to look at it, the outside garden is beautiful and the reception area is very well kept. The food was 5 star, and the service was amazing. Our event coordinator responded to very email, in a timely manner and was very helpful thru the whole process. The day of the wedding went very smoothly, and all of our guests were impressed with the cocktail hour food and dinner. I would definitely recommend venue, especially if youre looking for an outside/inside event. They also have a BEAUTIFUL bridal suite, and groom suite. Perfect for pictures. We have gotten many compliments at how beautiful our wedding was!
I had a horrible experience from the very beginning. I really love the look of the secret garden and was looking forward to having my special day there, but when the wedding consultant wont return your calls or emails, its impossible to book the venue. First she was a no show for my appointment which I drove 45 minutes to attend. In the end the consultant tried to make up for her faults, and that was appreciated. I still decided to go with a different venue.
I attended and event here and it was nice. The area we were in had an overall feeling of being of a much, much cheaper venue. Dont get me wrong, it was nice; but, I had a few issues with it. Part of the landscaping was unkempt while others where pristine. The parking lot was hard for disabled people to walk on. The the room itself was decorated nicely; but, felt oddly cheap. With that said, the most shocking part to me was the price.
Their start off package is $8500 and its only to rent the venue this DOES NOT include food, servers, etc.also its only if you want to rent the venue Mon-Thurs only. I get that its a very nice venue but really over 8k just to rent! Also unwilling to work with lower budgets these were her exact words.. "Oh sorry this isnt the place for you". Pfft give me a break!
Venue is absolutely gorgeous! On top of the staff being super friendly and extremely helpful. I am getting married here April of next year; Maggie and Alexis are great to work with! They answer all my questions and ALWAYS get back to me in a timely manner. I would recommend this venue to anyone and everyone!
If Im about to spend upwards of 12k+ to book at your venue, Id expect you to be actually at the open house when its listed on your site. Congratulations, not long did you make us upset because we drove all the way down there, there was many other couples looking to view it. You lost a potential customer.
This place is gorgeous beyond words. Perfect for any event including a maternity shoot out! Would highly recommend this place for any special reason. Hopefully I could capture it! Jamie Elizabeth Photography
This venue is very pretty and conveniently tucked into the South Phoenix area. You dont feel like youre in a busy city at all. Very nice venue for a wedding.
Attended a wedding here. The location is very nice, the grounds are well kept, and they did a great job with the overall setup of the wedding and reception.
Beautiful property. Food was amazing. Had a few small hiccups with the staff during the wedding but thats how it goes when it starts raining!
Very nice for a place to host an indoor or outdoor event. A little do all on the inside so dont expect to have too many people in there.
It is exquisite, for there food is fresh and properly cooked. Starting from the service to the meals I had a great experience.
Had a few issues, but were solved quickly. Great wedding for my son.
Crappy venue in a crappy side of town (south phx )
Cozy. Warm comfortable. Great venue for wedding.
