Timeless… breathtaking… exquisite. These are just a few words we use to describe The Resort at Pelican Hill. Perched upon the coastline in Newport Coast, and boasting one of the most magnificent views in the world, Pelican Hill is the ultimate location to host your wedding celebration. You and your guests will be captivated by the panoramic ocean views, romantic Tuscan architecture, and sense of complete privacy. The resort vows to only host one wedding per day at their exclusive Mar Vista Wedding Estate which gives you the all of the undivided attention you deserve on your special day.


Located just 300 feet above the ocean, the outdoor Mar Vista Event Lawn — with its oval-shaped lawn and timeless, iconic Italian rotunda — is truly a spectacular location to host your wedding ceremony.  The elegant Mar Vista Ballroom is complete with floor-to-ceiling windows that frame the ocean vistas and includes a spacious patio and outdoor terrace.  Indoor and outdoor fireplaces give the space a cozy feel.  The ballroom is also completely separate from the resort and includes a private entrance, ensuring complete exclusivity.  For more intimate affairs, the indoor La Capella is a fabulous location for a ceremony or reception with natural light, wood-beam ceiling, views of the ocean, and a fireplace.
