April 1, 2021

When it comes to Southern California wedding venues, nothing beats the iconic shot of happy newlyweds beneath the Rotunda at The Resort at Pelican Hill! Expansive green lawns and views of the coastline can be seen surrounding the Rotunda; if you haven’t seen it yet, you’re missing out on a really magical and inspiring shot. Pelican Hill is located on the coast in Newport Beach and is a go-to destination for both Orange County locals and travelers visiting the golden state from afar. With tons of luxurious accommodations available on site, a world-class golf course, and beautiful event spaces, The Resort at Pelican Hill should be on your “must-see” list for potential wedding venue options in Orange County! 

Pelican Hill covers over 500 acres of pristine coastline in Newport Beach and is known for its amazing hospitality and stunning Italian architecture. With both outdoor and indoor event locations available, couples can take advantage of both the perfectly manicured grounds and the immaculately decorated interior spaces, or a combination of both for an unforgettable celebration. The Italian Rotunda on the lawn sets a dramatic scene for a ceremony location and has become an iconic location for weddings at The Resort at Pelican Hill. Dress up the Rotunda with elegant draping or a chandelier dropped in the center, or leave it bare in all its beautiful glory! So many options to customize the location that will support a couple’s unique wedding style. For the reception, there are stunning outdoor locations for an alfresco celebration beneath a starry night sky or elegant ballroom settings where guests can dine and dance indoors.

The culinary staff will also work with couples on a customized menu for their event and there’s even a full-service pastry kitchen on-site to create the perfect wedding cake or dessert station that’ll end the wedding night on a sweet note!
