Getting Ready for a Romantic Christmas Wedding

Hannah wore a classic gown with lace details on the bodice and a tulle skirt.  The dress featured a discrete sparkle which looked like snow when the light hit it.  Hannah’s pumps acted as her something blue.  Delicate diamond jewelry and a dramatic veil completed the bride’s look.

Hannah’s bouquet was the perfect Christmas combo.  Red and white roses were complimented by evergreens and pine cones.  The bridesmaids wore crimson red, floor length gowns, the groomsmen, classic black tuxedos.  Vito wore a black tux with a wood-like bow tie, complete with a hidden Mickey, for the couple’s love of Disney.

The Christmas Wedding Ceremony in Central Florida

The ceremony was held at Mission Inn Resort’s Plaza de la Fontana.  Vito shared a moment with his family and groomsmen before heading down the aisle to await his bride.  The ceremony looked beautiful with poinsettias filling the gardens.  The ceremony chairs adorned by silver dusted pinecones hung with ribbon.  Vito stood at the altar eagerly as the flower girl stopped for a moment to splash in the fountain before making her way down the aisle.  When Hannah turned the corner with her dad, she looked stunning.  Tears of happiness rolled down Vito’s face as he took Hannah’s hands from her dad’s.  Lon Tosi of Sensational Ceremonies presided over the ceremony.  The vows were simple and heartfelt.  Hannah and Vito giggled as they kissed for the first time as husband and wife before making their way down the aisle.

Central Florida Christmas Wedding Reception

The Christmas wedding theme continued into reception.  Reception tables were draped in snow white linen and red napkins with mahogany chiavari chairs.  Arrangements of evergreens and pine sat at the center of tables, alternating with lanterns.  The couple skipped the traditional guest book and instead had each guest sign a wooden tree ornament.  Hannah and Vito opened the dance floor with formal dances.  The couple shared a father / daughter dance, mother / son dance and a first dance.  After the first dance, Vito’s sister, who is wheelchair bound, surprised the couple by rising from her wheelchair long enough to share in a dance with the couple.  Gasps were heard and tears filled the room.

A Moment Alone

As the party went on, the couple stopped for a moment alone on Plaza de las Palmas.  Vito spun his new bride under a sea of market lights as they danced under the stars.

Party Time

Following Hannah & Vito’s alone time, the couple returned to the party.  The couple cut the cake and opened the sweets table filled with Christmas cookies.  Hannah threw her bouquet and Vito, Hannah’s garter.  As the night when on, both the music and the party picked up the tempo.  Hannah and Vito, both lovers of electronic / house music, wanted the party to be fun.  The groomsmen appeared on the dancefloor in inflatable dinosaur costumes and family and friends raged through the night.

From the Mother of the Groom:

It was by far the perfect wedding!!  Working with Bri to book the wedding was great. She made the entire process so easy to understand and helped us decide on exactly what we wanted. The wedding coordinator was incredible to work with. We are a very detail orientated family and she helped us figure out every detail making the wedding just perfect. So many guests told us that this was the best wedding they have ever been to.

The ceremony in the Plaza de la Fontana was just picture perfect. The cocktail hour and reception was also just wonderful.  The setting was just perfect. Having a wedding at The Mission Inn when many of your guests will be coming from out of town was just wonderful. We had almost 70 guests staying there and everyone loved it especially those who play golf!!! If you are looking at having a wedding in Central Florida I would highly recommend the Mission Inn!!!!

Cara & Jared’s Black and White Winter Wedding

Ceremony: Plaza de la Fontana

Reception: La Hacienda

Cara and Jared had a beautiful winter wedding at Plaza de la Fontana here at the Mission Inn Resort. Their outdoor wedding ceremony was classic and romantic from start to finish.  Jared was a character from start to finish, making both us and the guests laugh and smile the entire day! The couple wanted the focus of the day to be on their union and the importance of each of their families.  Jared made his first kiss with Cara a moment to remember with a dramatic dip that caught the audience by surprise. After ceremony, Jared whisked Cara away for a private bride and groom moment with his new wife prior to the reception beginning. The couple chose to keep the colors classic and elegant with a black and white wedding reception.  The couple chose a three tiered white fondant cake with a simple crystal monogram. The cake kept the elegant feel the couple wanted and added a modern touch as well. After spending time with family and friends they had a dramatic sparkler exit in then drove off in a retro convertible as husband and wife.

Ceremony: Plaza de la Fontana
Reception: La Hacienda

Whitney and Brandon had a beautiful garden wedding starting with an afternoon ceremony in our Plaza de la Fontana. The couple wanted a color palette that subtly hinted at the Groom’s deep love of the Miami Dolphins.   The couple decided on black, white and tiffany blue with bold yellow sunflowers throughout both the ceremony and reception space. Sunflowers lined the aisle where Brandon waited, looking over the water eagerly anticipating his bride.  The reception was held in La Hacienda, which featured white linen with classic white chair covers and with pops of tiffany blue in the napkins and chair ties.  Each table was topped off by a breathtaking bouquet of sunflowers! The wedding cake continued the look with a three tier white wedding cake with tiffany blue ribbons and sunflower sugar flowers.  Brandon was so surprised and in love with his Miami Dolphins Helmet groom’s cake. As the sun set in the distance, they ate, drank and celebrated with family and friends.

Romantic White and Light Blue Wedding

Monica and Albert chose Mission Inn Resort’s Plaza de la Fontana for a beautiful springtime garden ceremony.  The day started out overcast but when ceremony started the sky cleared way to a beautiful Florida sunshine. The couple chose a color palette of light blue and white to create a light romantic feel. The three tier cake with a monogram cake topper made by Iva’s Cake Place was almost too beautiful to cut but all of the guests enjoyed the mouthwatering flavors.  The couple’s true love was apparent during every moment of the evening.

Words from the bride:

I cannot express enough how perfect everything was at our wedding ceremony and reception. Our catering manager was incredible, and the whole Mission Inn team was so professional. We thoroughly enjoyed every element of the evening, from the beautiful ceremony location to being chauffeured across scenic golf courses to delicious meals and being able to share the beauty of La Hacienda with our family and friends. We were so proud of how well everything was executed and so thankful that everyone took such good care of us. Thank you to Mission Inn for making our wedding day perfect. It was an absolute pleasure working with such a professional staff!
