Here at Mission Inn Resort, each couple is assigned their own Wedding Catering Manager to assist with orchestrating all of your wedding details here at the resort.
We wanted to take some time to introduce you to our wedding team here at Mission Inn and some of their interests beyond weddings to get to know them just a little better.
First up, our newest team member, Nadine Haines. She joined our team this past April and is a 2017 graduate of SUNY Empire State College with a major in Business Management and Economics with a concentration in Management.

Mission Inn Resort: What is your favorite thing/part about weddings?
Nadine: I love absolutely everything about weddings but if I had to choose just one thing, I would say that maybe my top pick would be the first dance or the personalization of each individual wedding.
Mission Inn Resort: Three things that make you happy?
Nadine: Spending time with my husband, watching movies, especially Harry Potter and Disney Movies, and puppies!
Mission Inn Resort: What did you want to be when you grew up?
Nadine: From the time that I was a little girl, I always wanted to be a Fashion Designer because I grew up flipping through fashion magazines like Vogue and Elle loving every aspect of it. I even used to draw my own fashion designs through high school. At one point, I even planned on majoring in fashion design in college.
Mission Inn Resort: What is your favorite cake flavor?
Nadine: Marble Cake with Chocolate Frosting
Mission Inn Resort: Where are you from?
Nadine: Syracuse, New York, gotta love the Syracuse University basketball team.
Mission Inn Resort: What is your favorite thing to do in your free time?
Nadine: I love to go to Disney! Any day is a good day when you a plummeting down in the Tower of Terror at Hollywood Studios.
Mission Inn Resort: What is your favorite social media app?
Nadine: Instagram or Pinterest
Mission Inn Resort: What’s your favorite holiday?
Nadine: Christmas. My favorite color is red, so I totally love all of the ornaments and decorations and twinkling lights. This year will be my first time ever seeing Disney done up for Christmas and I seriously cannot wait!
Mission Inn Resort: If you didn’t have to sleep, what would you do with the extra time?
Nadine: That’s not fair, I love sleeping! If I wasn’t allowed to sleep, I’d use it to do fun stuff like go to Walt Disney World or go shopping at the Millenia Mall.
Mission Inn Resort: What are some small things that make your day better?
Nadine: Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups (currently a bag of the miniature ones sitting on my desk and they are great), Vanilla Coca-Cola but I’ll live with Pepsi if it’s all that’s available, that feeling of accomplishment when my entire inbox is cleaned out, my desk is clear and everything is where it is supposed to be.
Thanks so very much, Nadine, for sharing a little bit about you with the rest of us. Welcome to the Mission Inn Resort family!
