My ceremony was held at the Mission in San Miguel and we hosted our reception at the Mission San Miguel Parish Center. The Mission is absolutely beautiful and has a lot of history. No decor needed! The Parish Hall is a new building and it is stunning! Susan, who arranges the events at the Parish Hall, was absolutely amazing. She went above and beyond to make our day special.Sent on 08/06/2012

Susan was a pleasure to work with. She meet with me on a couple of occasions to go over details and layouts of the facility. She informed me that the price included the use of all equipment on site and flatware and dinnerware. They also had wine barrels on site that we used as cocktail tables.Sent on 08/31/2012
We used the outside patio as our main reception site since the weather was nice and warm (high 80's at it's highest).

We had our wedding ceremony here. We wanted a unique catholic ceremony location and was given just that. The mission was beautiful, unique and provided an atmosphere that we had looked for. Our guests were in awe at the ambiance and overall feeling of the location. We got our catholic service but the unique location gave us the ceremony desired. Everyone at the mission was a pleasure to work with.Sent on 11/09/2012

It was incredibly convenient to have our ceremony and reception in the same place and thus avoiding the "catholic gap." The hall itself was a fantastic deal compared to many other venues we had researched. We opted for the 6-10 hour rental package which was $1250 and included access to chairs, tables, wine barrels, silverware, glassware, etc. We immediately fell in love with the exterior of the hall, especially the patio is gorgeous! We opted to have reception in the patio which was more than enough space for our 20 tables and 150 guests. Having access to a fully stocked commercial kitchen with large refrigerators was awesome for prep we had to do before the wedding and I know that our caterers were also very impressed by it. We booked the venue very early on (more than a year out) and unfortunately there were so many changes with who was in charge. Susan was incredibly responsive and helpful. However, as our date got closer and we needed to start hammering out some details, issues with communication started. A month out before my wedding I found out that Susan was out on leave indefinitely but no one bothered to let me know who I should be following up with instead. I had to call the mission to find out that Maria P. would now be in charge. Maria P was incredibly sweet but she was essentially just thrown into coordinating the hall in Susan's absence. Maybe 2-3 weeks before our wedding, another coordinator Maria G, was brought on and she became point person. She was quick to respond and very helpful, even letting us set up the Friday before. However there were some issues that came about such as a discrepancy in pricing for security guards than what was stated in contract. We were also strongly advised against using the fountain in the patio (because of the drought), which I felt was kind of weird. Getting back our deposit also took longer than expected even though we left the space cleaner than we found it. Nevertheless, I am so happy we had our reception here!Sent on 11/24/2016

Mission San Miguel holds a special place in our hearts. When we decided to get married, doing so at the mission was the first thing we knew we wanted. Everything else was planned and centered around it.Sent on 06/16/2016
We worked with the mission’s coordinator Maria. She was very slow to respond. However, all paperwork was eventually worked out. The night before at the rehearsal she was not very friendly or helpful. Please note, that my husband confirmed that night that there were no other events following our wedding until 5pm.
Our big day came and my husband’s uncle, a monsignor from another mission married us. It was a beautiful ceremony. However, when we walked back in the mission to take our pictures only moments after the ceremony all our decor was removed and people we didn’t know were filling the church for a funeral! They were all just staring at us as we desperately tried to take two pictures in the church we had just gotten married in a few moments ago. It was one of the most uncomfortable moments of my life and this is how my new husband and I got to spend our first moments of marriage together. I also overheard Maira questioning the monsignor. He had mentioned that the mission had been restored, which it has. She challenged him to this. It was quite distasteful.
In the signed contract… it states we have 30min following our ceremony to take pictures. They didn’t give us a single minute. I found Maria and told her how upset we were. My husband also reminded her that she had confirmed the night before with her that nothing was happening until 5pm. She said, well things changed and walked away. I still love this mission, but I wouldn’t recommend getting married here because this coordinator was terrible to work with and really put a damper to our wedding day that we can never get back. Maria should be ashamed of her poor behavior and lack of planning… which is in fact her whole job purpose.
