Words cannot describe how happy we are with our Mission Inn wedding experience. All aspects of our celebration were beyond 5-star. During our initial visit, we met Mark Kingsdorf in the wedding sales department. We were extremely impressed with his professionalism, his knowledge of the property, and his low-pressure attitude. We were so impressed by what we saw and heard, it was easy for us to commit to having our wedding at Mission Inn. We feel truly lucky to have had Katie Jimenez as our wedding coordinator. Her friendly, personable attitude was immediately apparent. She was very willing to work within our vision of our perfect wedding and has a true “yes” mentality. She was willing to consider every request we had and in the end she didn’t have to tell us “no” on anything. She is a true professional, one who is organized, punctual, and well prepared. We were surprised that she could recall the details of our wedding without having to refer to her notes all the time. She was also very involved on the day of the wedding and made sure everything was perfect. It is quite clear she loves her job. Besides the wonderful people at Mission Inn (the entire staff was great!), we also fell in love with the ceremony location and the resort facilities. We chose the Plaza de la Fontana as our ceremony site. It was gorgeous! For our cocktail hour, we chose Plaza de las Palmas, which was charming and romantic. Our reception was in La Hacienda and we could not have been happier with the layout and beautiful details, such as the fireplace. The hotel is quaint and comfortable. Mission Inn is a small resort with all the amenities of a big resort. My husband was able to play golf on the El Champeon course with his groomsmen. He loved the course. It was beautiful and challenging. The pro shop staff also impressed him. They were very accommodating, especially with his untraditional group size. I was able to enjoy a full spa day with my bridal party. They went above and beyond in making sure we were relaxed and pampered. We got manicures, pedicures, and had full access to the spa facilities. We took advantage of the steam room, relaxation room (lounges with cucumbers for our eyes), and even had a light, healthy lunch catered by Mission Inn. Last but certainly not least was all of the delicious food available on property. We were blown away by the taste and quality of our wedding dinner. We chose to have filet mignon, spinach and boursin stuffed chicken, mushroom risotto, and a squash medley as our meal. The meal could not have been any more delicious or well prepared. My husband was even accommodated with a ribeye instead of a filet and is thrilled to say it’s the best one he’s ever had. One of the things that puts this resort above the rest is the fact that the food is prepared on site and a caterer does not have to transport pre-cooked meals. In addition to our wedding food, we also had a wonderful poolside rehearsal dinner. We chose the Americana Picnic package and the quality of food was impressive. The food quality really surprised us because we had a simple poolside BBQ in our mind, but the hamburgers, hot dogs, and fried chicken were top notch. We also ate at several other restaurants on property and never had a single complaint about service or food quality. Overall, we would rate our wedding way beyond 5-stars if we could. We were truly impressed by every experience we had at the resort and by every person we met while there. In addition to our own personal impressions, we have received tons of compliments about our beautiful wedding, gorgeous location, and the delightful food. It is definitely a first class property and well worth the value. We feel that a similar experience would have been close to double in price at another Orlando area resort.
