Our landmark grand fountain is the centerpiece of the outdoor courtyard, creating a dramatic entrance for couples on wedding day.  The flexible layout of Plaza de la Fontana allows couples creative options when deciding how to setup the ceremony on wedding day.

For couples that time their wedding date just right, there is nothing more stunning then the pink hibiscus trees in full bloom that line the stairway just below Plaza de la Fontana.  These trees create a gorgeous frame for both portraits and stunning images of trains and veils.

For weddings with large wedding parties or for cultural weddings that require Chuppahs or Mandaps, saying “I Do” in front of the balcony ensures that you and your wedding party have plenty of room and do not feel crowded during your ceremony.

For weddings with smaller wedding parties, couples will often turn the ceremony so that vows are exchanged in front of the fountain.  This lends to a more intimate feel.

Using the fountain for a backdrop is also a great option for those couples that want a garden ceremony but also want the symbolism of getting married at a church.

Oftentimes, we get requests for intimate ceremony options at Mission Inn.  For weddings with less than 20 guests, the front gardens of Plaza de la Fontana are beautiful for guest seating.

On occasion, couples will use Plaza de la Fontana as an outdoor reception location.  For those couples, their ceremony is held on the back lawn of Plaza de la Fontana.
