    The Mission Inn is a dream to work with!!

    The best choice we made while planning our wedding was choosing to have it at the Mission Inn. My mother suggested we have a look at the venue, as it was nearby another one we were touring. We really weren't thinking we'd end up choosing a golf resort as our venue, but they blew everyone else out of the water. They had many venue locations for us to look at and ended up falling in love with the Courtyard area at Legends. We were blown away by their packages and offers; it was the best of what we had seen offered out of all the other venues in Central FL we had looked at. We had also gone in December and were given a Black Friday deal where they provided the DJ. We booked in December 2019 for a March 2021 wedding. Of course, Covid had other plans, and we ended up deciding to push back our date to 2022. They were extremely helpful in getting us rebooked, it was fairly painless.

    We mainly worked with Helen R. She was fantastic! She saw to all of our needs and she made sure all of our questions and concerns were addressed. She was very communicative with us and gave us brilliant suggestions of vendors when we ended up having to move the date (as some of our previously selected vendors were not available on the new date). Helen really spent a lot of time going over the details of our wedding and making sure we were happy with the arrangements.

    We were hesitant to book a place that was going to provide the catering without having tried some of the food. We looked up other reviews about the Mission Inn and in nearly all of them; I mentioned that the food was great, so that won us over. So here's another review to attest to that! THE FOOD WAS AMAZING! We absolutely loved the food for our rehearsal dinner and for our reception! I am looking forward to being able to eat there for our future anniversaries!

    We enjoyed our honeymoon suite and our wedding guests said they liked their rooms. We really enjoyed relaxing by the pool. Our stay was overall really pleasant. My advice would be if you end up booking, have your guest book rooms EARLY for your wedding date!


    Each vendor we booked made comments about how they enjoyed working with the Mission Inn; almost like it was a relief to them we had booked Mission Inn for our venue. So that was comforting to know that as we were planning everything. Sure enough, there were no issues between the Mission Inn and our other vendors. The Mission Inn is -very- good at managing their weddings. While checking in the day before our wedding, I overheard a conversation where one of the staff informed a guest that there were SEVEN weddings happening that weekend. I was a little worried when I heard that, but really it was all fine; I saw hints that other weddings were going on, but never did I feel like I was sharing space with another bride, nor did our parties overlap at all.

    I can confidently say based on our experience, that booking with the Mission Inn is a solid decision. It's going to make your planning so much easier and you will have a fantastic day. We loved our wedding! We wish we could do it all over again. We loved it so much! Thank you to all the Mission Inn staff for making it a truly amazing day for us!!!

    They were hands down the BEST and always have been!

    We held our wedding at Mission Inn Resort on Friday March 25th, 2022 at their “Plaza de la Fontana and La Hacienda restaurant” and we just want to relive our wedding over & over again! The best part is that we had a wedding WEEKEND with all of our family and friends from out of town because everyone was able to stay right on the property, it was absolutely amazing. During our stay, we were able to utilize the resort to its fullest, between the two
    Golf courses, the spa, multiple restaurants, billiards and arcade room, and pools / hot tub. Our wedding was not only eventful, but a relaxing vacation. When we started wedding planning, we were in contact with Jessica who was extremely knowledgeable, eager to help, and easy to get ahold of. She immediately made me feel that I could trust their staff with such an important day in my life. They offer an “All inclusive” package where Mission Inn provides you with a list of all of their preferred vendors, you can book an officiant through the venue or opt to provide your own, catering and linens are provided by the venue and the food has NEVER disappointed. Once you pick your vendors, Mission Inn’s staff handles the rest! In charge of the food and day of is wedding coordinator, Helen, she was amazing and accommodated all of our wants and needs professionally and within a timely manner. She invited us for a tasting and set up the table in options for the reception which was perfect because I’m a very visual person. Helen was also extremely helpful because she was able to schedule extra activities during our wedding stay. Fast forward to wedding rehearsal - my month of wedding planner, Heather, was hired from “For the Love of Events” and she was all around wonderful. She is the one who conducted our rehearsal while it was RAINING right next to our ceremony site in a covered walk path so we would not get wet but still could see where we were all going to be. She kept everyone focused and on task to get the rehearsal done correctly and allow us to move on to our dinner. Wedding DAY!! Heather from For the Love of Events was working with us all day and knew exactly what she needed to do; she took all of our wedding decorations and set them up exactly the way I wanted them, she made sure all the other vendors were showing up on time and had what they needed, she even helped my fiancé remove blood stains out of his white collared shirt before the wedding!! Everything for our wedding went so smooth, ceremony was beautiful, Mission Inn has many beautiful spots to take pictures afterwards, and my new husband and I even got to take a few minutes alone to walk into our reception and see it all set up before any of our guests went inside. Everyone raved about their dual plated dinner and we all danced the night away, ending in a beautiful sparkler exit! We were so sad when we realized the night was over… but the party was NOT, we all had a blast for the rest of the weekend! If you want a wedding where you hardly have to lift a finger or even worry about anything… go to Mission Inn and take advantage of all of their amazing options and activities that they offer with it!
