An iconic property, the Resort at Pelican Hill wedding venue holds its place as a show-stopping location for an Orange County event.

By choosing a space this gorgeous, you’ll guarantee that every single guest will have an unforgettable experience at your wedding. If you’re considering hosting your event at Pelican Hill, read on for more information.
Event Lawn and Rotunda
Most popular for ceremonies, the Mar Vista Event Lawn features an open grassy area that faces West toward the Rotunda and the Pacific Ocean. The lawn holds about 500 guests, though you can certainly host smaller ceremonies or receptions there. The Rotunda itself provides couples with the most gorgeous ceremony backdrop. It can be decorated with draping, flowers, and additional chandeliers to suit your tastes.
While most couples opt for the Ballroom for their reception, you can also have your reception on the lawn if you prefer being outdoors. It makes an exquisite venue for evening events.
Mar Vista Lower Patio
The Mar Vista Lower Patio typically serves as a space for cocktail hour, as it is located on the walk from the Event Lawn to the Ballroom. It can hold up to 500 guests for a reception or 300 guests at round tables. From the Patio, you can see the Rotunda and the ocean, making it a very enticing option for your cocktail hour or even your reception.
Mar Vista Ballroom
Most couples getting married at Pelican Hill opt for the Mar Vista Ballroom for their reception. When fully draped, this space transforms into an intimate luxury venue that will make guests feel as though they’re stepping into another world. With a dance floor, I would say that you can comfortably fit anywhere from 50 (using part of the space) to 300 guests (using the entire ballroom) for a seated reception depending on whether you use long or round tables and how large of a dance floor you desire.
