Your wedding is a once-in-a lifetime event, and your exchange of ‘I do’ marks the start of your amazing journey as a couple that will be imparted to your loved ones for a long time to come. Thus, where you held your wedding should also be remarkable.
Pelican Hill is a deluxe and splendid wedding setting located on the Newport Coast. It is directly off the Pacific Coast Highway, which holds the record as one of the most noteworthy worldwide hospitality ratings by winning five stars in the 55th yearly ratings by Forbes Travel Guide.
You can enjoy the oceanfront wedding venue from the great classical Italian rotunda that showcases the magnificent view of the Pacific Ocean. Not only that, the impeccably designed Mediterranean landscapes, beautified by the rolling hills of the golf course, emanate the glorious beauty of nature.
Unlike any other resort, Pelican Hill Resort provides privacy for you and your guests on your wedding day. You can embrace the solemnity of your wedding celebration as it will be held in the Mar Vista part of the resort, separating you from other visitors, restaurants, and pools. Thus, you can ensure that there will be no tourists or unknown guests captured in your photos and videos.
