In 2001, Shannon and Anita Davidson moved from Switzerland to an empty cornfield in the middle of the beautiful Missouri countryside.

Anita, who is originally from Switzerland, had been to France and England at a young age and loved the beauty of Provence and Camargue. The French lavender fields with their romantic, enchanted stone cottages inspired her to replicate the ambiance and bring Central Europe to Central Missouri.


Stone paths along with purple lilacs and flower spikes make this wedding venue one of the most romantic and enchanted secret places you can find in Missouri. We have poured many hours of labor manicuring and tending to it with the vision for A Secret Place to be a little paradise to celebrate the bond between a man and a woman in the beauty of God’s creation. 

Different kinds of events were hosted on the property for many years, with the first wedding being celebrated there in 2014. We invite you to schedule a tour and see the place for yourself! 

Be enchanted by the beauty and serenity of our
French-inspired gardens.
