A limited number of celebrations will be hosted each year ensuring an entire weekend is dedicated to the lavish festivities of just one couple.

NEWPORT BEACH, CA (Oct. 27, 2022) – The Resort at Pelican Hill, the only Five-Star, Five-Diamond resort in Newport Beach, returns to hosting weddings with the new Grand Wedding Weekends, celebrations of extraordinary style, cuisine and craftsmanship devoted exclusively to the nuptials of one couple over the course of a full weekend.

Each Grand Wedding Weekend is crafted for the couple by a team of artisans, incorporating the bride and groom’s tastes and dreams into a custom celebration unlike any other. Each couple will collaborate with their hand-picked team to design their personal brand of wedding experiences. Menu creation begins as a conversation with our culinary team and evolves into a flawless presentation of theme, flavor and creativity woven into every gathering from the arrival aperitivo and rehearsal dinner to the dazzling reception and farewell brunch finale. 

“The Resort at Pelican Hill is devoted to creating once-in-a-lifetime experiences, and a Grand Wedding Weekend is a truly spectacular way for a couple to celebrate their love,” says Gerard Widder, Managing Director. 

Pelican Hill is the ideal destination to delight every guest gathered for the celebration. The Spa is transformed into a Roman retreat that includes energizing fitness, customized treatments, and luxurious beauty appointments all centered around time relaxing in the Acqua Colonnades. Forecaddies elevate your golf game on two pristine courses that boast ocean views from every hole. The possibilities are endless.

A Mediterranean-inspired village set across 504 spectacular acres along the Southern California coast, The Resort at Pelican Hill will host a limited number of Grand Wedding Weekends each year, ensuring the time and space to exclusively honor each couple in an extraordinary fashion.
