  • From the initial mimosas to the spectacular view, I fell in love before even getting there. The photography doesn't give this place justice. I am excited to work with these wonderful and generous staff as I continue planning my special day.

  • Secret Gardens lives up to its name in the best way possible-- stepping foot onto the venue, you instantly feel like you're in a private oasis. It feels luxurious and refined, but with a tropical Miami flair. Beautifully manicured foliage, waterfalls, coral walking bridges...there are so many little coves and walkways that wedding guests can enjoy (especially during cocktail hour). What the photos *don't* show you is how incredible the team is at Secret Gardens. From our first visit, Joe and Blanca have made us feel like family. They're seasoned pros, transparent and reasonable with their pricing, and very responsive to any questions. During this COVID-19 crisis, we unfortunately had to reschedule our wedding. Without question, Joe and Blanca offered flexible date changes and were so patient with my incessant calls (lol). After extensive research online and in-person, choosing Secret Gardens Miami was a no-brainer. We're so happy with our decision!!

You are a remarkable couple and we are honored that you let us be a small part of your special day. Your wedding will be spectacular. Stay SAFE. Joe & Blanca

  • From the moment we walking into this venue we fell in love! The location is absolutely STUNNING with its many rock waterfalls, koi ponds, outstanding ceremony deck, and natural beauty all around! We knew instantly this was where we wanted to get married! This venue choice was solidified the moment we met and spoke with Blanca. She is one of the kindest, most genuine people we have ever met! In just a short while she made you feel like you were her own daughter and that she genuinely cared for your well being and happiness. Her husband Joe was also a pleasure to work with! They both were so fantastic, attentive, friendly and accommodating to us for every special request that we had! We rented the honeymoon villa the night before and had our rehearsal dinner on property! It was truly a delight & our guests were blown away! The decor and lights around the whole property as well as the elegant tent accompanied with chandeliers gave such a magical, whimsical and romantic ambiance to... Read more

  • Where do I begin? Ladies this venue, the staff (my new friends lol), the atmosphere, and everything in between was way more than we could've ever imagined. Not only were we amazed by everything but so were our guest (and everyone on social media). I could not even imagine that our wedding would turn out to be so magical. It was truly a wedding that was beyond our expectations. We want to say thank you times infinity Blanca (and staff) for making our day and memories a beautiful occasion. We truly appreciate you from the bottom of hearts. Note: We will definitely be back for our future pregnancy shoot.

    Sheneque, don't forget about your maternity photo session :) I can't wait to see you both again! Blanca & Joe

  • Wow! I’ll start with wow because that was the first word that came out of me and my now wife’s mouth when we first entered The Secret Gardens. I’ve always believed that excellence has a head and tail to its work. As long as the is HEAD operates in excellence, then so will everything else in between the TAIL on down. Joe and Blanca were nothing less of excellence from the first time we met up until our wedding day. Our day was made that much more special because of the excellence The Secret Gardens of Miami provided. We love and appreciate everyone that is apart of their team and things will only get better alas time moves forward. I mean even from when we first saw the place there were upgrades and new amenities that we were able to take part in, so The Secret Gardens of Miami wont be much of a secret for long as long as excellence continues to be their priority.

  • Definitely the most amazing venue with a great staff! Any issues I had they worked with me to find solutions, I felt honored that the owners care about you and your event. The venue is absolutely breath taking! All my guest complimented everything. I ended up renting the smaller area with a house we could use overnight. The night of my wedding I actually caught the flu and didn’t stay overnight. The owners called me the next day and still offered to give me a one night stay when I felt better. How amazing are they! I would definitely recommend this venue to everyone even out of state guest as myself. I would say the only thing I would have done differently is research some of the recommended vendors they offer, I was very unsatisfied with the catering company I ended up with. But really has nothing to do with this amazing venue! Thank you Secret Gardens if Miami for a magical beautiful night!

    Cathie, thank you for the FIVE STAR review. Sorry that you were not happy with the catering company, but when you come back to stay in the Villa, a gourmet dinner will be on us! It was an honor to be part of your special day. Wishing you and Marcelo a lifetime of LOVE and HAPPINESS! Blanca & Joe

  • Just had my wedding at Secret Gardens it was everything I hoped for and more! Even though they don’t offer all inclusive packages Joe and Blanca recommended great vendors that they have worked with many times and everything seemed easy extremely smooth. I didn’t have a wedding planner so I dealt with it then directly and planned everything in about 4 months! They were extremely helpful and flexible! Joe was always available for questions and suggestions! Couldn’t think of a better venue!

    Rebeca, thank you for allowing us to be a small part of your special day. May your love be strong and bright, May your life be filled with light, May all your dreams come true, Wishing all the best things in life for you and Alex! Please remember you are part of the Secret Gardens Miami Family now, so come back and see us soon :) Blanca & Joe

  • When we got engaged in July 2018, we knew we needed to book a venue quickly in order to fit our Winter 2019 timeline. Living in Miami, it's hard to find a venue with gorgeous outdoor space on a budget, so we extended our search a little further south to Homestead. We had two venue visits lined up on a Saturday morning, first the Secret Garden and then another venue in Miami Beach. The Gardens blew us away, so much that we booked them the same day. We knew as soon as we walked in to the second venue visit that we wanted to have our wedding at the Secret Gardens of Miami, and the owners, Joe and Blanca Doyle have been amazing to work with over the past year and a half. They are great help for organization, vendor recommendations, and general wedding planning. For every visit, there is also a tasting organized with some of their recommended caterers (which is how we got ours!) and the fact that the venue and vendors already know each other cuts out a big portion of the planning.

  • First off, Blanca and Joe are incredible. They really know how to make you feel special. They have a great team working for them. The venue is stunning, all of our guests were mesmerized with the location and everything about it. Compared to other venues we looked at, the Secret Gardens is truly affordable and my husband and I think it was worth every single cent. We loved the flexibility to have our cocktail hour and reception anywhere around the venue. There’s not really a “set place” for anything and that is truly unique. The only feedback is we wished the man cave was a little more updated. However, the bridal suite was under construction so maybe that is all coming soon! I was blessed with the opportunity to get ready in the beautiful cottage on their sister property. It was just stunning and so spacious for a bride, bridesmaids, and a whole team of make up artists to set up. Again, I’m very grateful Blanca and Joe accommodated me in that way. Thank you!

    Ivana, thank you for letting us share in your special day. We wish you all the best as you embark on this wonderful union. You and Santiago are the "perfect" couple and we were honored to be a part of your wedding day! Thank you Blanca & Joe PS - the "man-cave" IS being redesigned and COMING SOON!

  • Our wedding was so beautiful! We received so many compliments. My favorite: "This was truly the most magical wedding I have ever been to". It really was. Spend a little more and get the tent. I can't imagine it without it. It was perfect.

  • Unable to accurately rate this venue. Our wedding had to be postponed due to COVID 19. Owner was unwilling to return our down payment or even 1/2-despite national pandemic! Word of advice-don’t put down a lot of $ on vendors-if something unforeseen occurs-because of a contract you signed-you won’t get your $ back!

  • The Secret Gardens was the perfect venue; I absolutely loved it! The owners Joe and Blanca were very helpful, however, I would not recommend all their preferred vendors, make sure to do your research. Everything about this day was perfect and I’m glad I chose this venue. I didn’t get the brightest photos, to the venues potential, because it rained, but on a perfect sunny day, the photos are just amazing! Make sure to take advantage of their free mimosa and food tasting tour of the venue!
