The mission was the perfect ceremony for our wedding. It is absolutely breathtaking inside and out. Liz was wonderful to work with and was helpful throughout the entire process. Everything was perfect, the only thing that made our planning challenging was being from out of town but we were able to communicate well and got everything done. They remained flexible with us and got things done even when we dropped the ball, being inexperienced wedding planners :)Sent on 01/18/2016
We also didn't need to do any decorating which was a huge plus, the mission is already perfect as is. It was definitely an expensive venue for us since it isn't our home parish, and we did opt to use the cantor and organist- but it was worth it. We were married by Fr. Miguel and he was also a hit with our guests by being so natural and friendly, and interacting with everyone. Getting married here was a dream.

The Carmel Mission is THE BEST place to have your wedding. The venue just made that day more special than I could have imagined. I had my even my non-Catholic friends tell me that the ceremony was one of the best they have seen. Father John was really great as well.Sent on 05/05/2009

I could not imagine a more beautiful, historic and special place to have our marriage sacrament ceremony.Sent on 08/31/2014
Liz Tana was delightful to work with leading up to the ceremony and was quick to respond to any questions I had.
Father Fredy was wonderful and they both made the rehearsal and ceremony perfect for us. The music and vocals were as beautiful as the Mission.
We truly feel honored and blessed to have started our Marriage at such an amazing church.
