"Several people have already said it, but let me assure you, Shelly is amazing! Her venue is perfect for big and small weddings. My husband and I got married November 2022 and it was perfect. Hidden Gardens was exactly what we were looking for! We had gone to see several other venues before checking out Hidden Gardens, and as we drove to see Shelly and her beautiful venue we actually talked about eloping instead. As soon as we pulled up, everything changed! Shelly was so friendly, her property and all of its decorations and amenities were exactly what we were looking for. My husband and I wanted a really intimate affair, and all my decorations went well with the décor and it all looked seamless. We made our decision that day to book with her! We got married on a Thursday and Shelly helped make it perfect! She worked well with my wedding coordinator / florist and helped ease some of the confusion with some of my less than perfect vendors. Shelly really helped make our wedding a day to remember she coordinated with our DJ, our caterer and made sure everything was exactly the way we wanted. She requests that you use her bartender, and let me tell you Jimmy is super responsive to phone calls and text messages and everything with him was breeze! Throughout our whole wedding planning process Shelly answered my questions and text messages and offered us lots of advice! If I could do my wedding over again, I would most definitely choose Shelly again and again! Although ,I did not choose to use Shelly as my florist or coordinator those are two services she offers. I do however, wish that I had used her husband as my caterer. If I could offer any advice to any of you on the fence, please go and visit Shelly and her venue. It truly is a special place in the middle of nowhere! Shelly, If you're reading this, Thank you again for helping to make our wedding the dream it was! <3"

"Hidden Gardens is a stunning venue and Shelly is so wonderful to work with. Our wedding day was beyond beautiful and everything we dreamed of and more-- intimate, full of nature, cozy, classic, and absolutely gorgeous. Shelly was such a huge part of making this happen. She is very communicative, accommodating, and supportive. The house itself is amazing, but the grounds are out of this world! There's nothing else like it. Thank you so, so much Shelly and team! Y'all are the best and I will forever look back at our pictures and our day and be grateful that it was at Hidden Gardens."

"I knew from my first tour that this was the venue I had to have, it was naturally beautiful, authentic, vintage, full of character and most of all affordable. I love the huge bar, the adorable dressing room, the large restrooms and my groomsmen loved the grooms suite! It also felt good to go with a family owned site because you can really tell the difference in the customer service and caring in comparison to a corporate chain. I had a lot of out of town guests and everyone I have talked to after the ceremony and reception has raved about Hidden Gardens. Michelle and her family really love this house and what they do and it shows. I will forever suggest this place for any special occasion."

"Do you want your wedding day to be the perfect day with no issues? Get married here. Shelly at the Hidden Gardens is an absolute gem!! She helped me with the entire process. We found our DJ on her preferred vendor list and he was amazing. The venue itself was gorgeous - luscious gardens and perfect landscaping. I got so many compliments at my wedding about how beautiful the venue was. And the best part is the gorgeous antique decor that Shelly already has at the venue means you don’t have to add a lot of decor for it to be a beautiful event. The bride/groom rooms upstairs were so lovely the day of to relax and get ready in. I had the perfect wedding day - no hiccups, nothing went wrong, it was everything I dreamed of and more, and it’s all because of this venue and Shelly!!"

This was so important especially navigating through a covid wedding that had to be rescheduled and all the unknowns and questions of how things might work out!"

"The owner, Shelly, was fantastic to work with. We used her venue for the wedding and reception. Her shop (Lake Worth Florist) did our flowers. The building is beautiful, has a lot of character. Decorated with antiques and many nice touches that really enhance the candid shots of everyone. We had some really strong storms and cold front blow through the night before. She reached out to me the morning of the wedding to go over a contingency plan for rain at what was supposed to be an outdoor wedding. She had great ideas for a plan B and it was all running smoothly when we arrived to get dressed etc. Speaking of getting dressed. Make sure you check out her gallery. The bride's dressing room is SO pretty. I definitely recommend Shelly and her lovely venue."

"When we started searching for a wedding venue, we knew that we wanted something different and down to earth. Hidden Gardens exceeded all of our expectations and didn't break our bank to do so! My favorite part about this place is that it basically becomes your home for the day which is what makes it so special. The upstairs has plenty of room for the family and bridal party to relax and hangout, not to mention the decor and arrangements are spectacular! The vanity room that the bride and bridesmaids are able to get ready in is something out of a movie and truly made our pre-ceremony pictures one of a kind. I also loved all of the corky history stories that the house has with it(ask Shelly about them!)- it truly makes your day feel like its part of something much bigger. Shelly and her family went above and beyond for us every step of the way. They work so hard to make your vision become a reality! She has several options of decorations and signs for you to use on sight if you wish but the great part about this place is that the house already has so much character you don't need to add very much. The large farmhouse tables are beautiful and helped create the 'family-style' atmosphere that we wanted. They even have heaters available to rent if your day gets a little chilly like ours did! I highly recommend this beautiful venue to anyone looking for something that's Fort Worth local but makes you feel like you're in another world!"
