Why do couples choose El Conquistador for their reception?
The View – Located on the second level of Mission Inn Resort, El Conquistador features breathtaking views of the El Campeon golf course and the Plaza de la Fontana ceremony space and gardens.
The Intimacy – Perfect for a brunch wedding, this space is smaller than some of our other spaces and allows for intimacy and togetherness with loved ones on wedding day.
Patio del Sol – El Conquistador features the private Patio del Sol, perfect for hosting a brunch pre-reception or allowing guests to move around both inside and out to take in the gorgeous Florida sunshine.
Maximum Occupancy – El Conquistador can accommodate up to 50 guests. For larger brunches, the doors of El Conquistador can be opened to allow for an additional 30 guests in La Margarita Lounge.
Table Layout – Existing tables and chairs are utilized for weddings in El Conquistador. Four top square tables are pushed together to accommodate more guests at one table. The knight in El Conquistador cannot be removed.
Dance Floor – A small dance floor can be placed in El Conquistador, however if the weather is nice, many couples opt to dance out on Patio del Sol without a dance floor to maximize space in the room.
Plated or Buffet – Pre-Reception is served on Patio del Sol and the private brunch buffet can be set in either El Conquistador or La Margarita depending on the size of the wedding. All brunches are served buffet style.
Cocktail Hour and Ceremony Space – Wedding brunches feature a 30 minute pre-reception in lieu of a cocktail hour. Your wedding ceremony will take place on the gorgeous Plaza de la Fontana followed by pre-reception on Patio del Sol.
We loved every minute of our wedding. From the moment we chose the location, we were taken care of. Bri was very helpful with getting what we wanted as far as the packages and rooms. Our catering manager was so very helpful with getting our menu and upgrades in place. We were clueless as to how weddings worked. I had heard horror stories about how stressful wedding planning was. I kept waiting for the stress and it never came, primarily because of Mission Inn staff. The hotel and dining staff were very helpful and super friendly!!
We had such an amazing and unforgettable experience with the entire Mission Inn Resort and especially the wonderful wedding team. We knew from the beginning it was our dream venue. From the most informative tour to help us visualize our big day to the formal food tasting, the accommodating team, and right up until the day of. The team, especially our wedding coordinator was so helpful. During on ceremony all of the staff was ready and there was never an empty glass of water. They even remembered a lot of the guests by name! It was an unforgettable wedding day and venue.
My husband Steve & I selected the Mission Inn & Resort for our vow renewal. The decision was clear after my initial meeting with Bri. She created a vision and executed with a very professional and creative team of wedding vendors and Mission Inn staff. The Spanish style architecture provided a romantic back drop to our intimate ceremony & celebration. We would like to thank the Mission Inn for making our vow renewal amazing. We could not have asked for a more beautiful event and venue ... executed by a fun & professional team. Thank you again!
