Newport Beach. One of the very popular beach resort vacation spots on the California coast. And, naturally, a great place to have a beach wedding!
Particularly at the gorgeous (and fairly popular) Resort at Pelican Hill — “a marriage of Italian splendor and California ease.”
Come on, guys, you know it’s impossible for me to resist Italian splendor.
I remember seeing a picture of this place for the first time, the rotunda all decked out for a luxury wedding, fairly encrusted with flowers! I knew immediately that I wanted to photograph a bride in that very spot.
This is what they have to say of their own famed wedding locale: The Resort at Pelican Hill is “a magnificent blend of 16th century Palladian architecture and the beauty of the California coast. Ever present ocean views serve as a magnificent backdrop for all your gatherings; a rehearsal dinner alfresco, wedding ceremony on the lawn, and a lavish reception with panoramic Pacific views.”
They do have a couple of nice indoor spaces for weddings, including La Cappella — an intimate warm setting with a fireplace — and Mar Vista — with its exclusive ballroom and ready grandeur.
But of course, the crown jewel of Pelican Hill is still the rotunda. Reserved exclusively for weddings, this impressive feature can be decorated in endless ways to create the perfect mood for any wedding. I have seen some amazing designs for this spot! You almost can’t do it wrong. What would you do with it?
The Resort at Pelican Hill is tough to beat for a fine outdoor wedding. Definitely a winning combination.
