The Rotunda

The Rotunda at Pelican Hill is the perfect blend of classical design and modern California style. Its Italian Renaissance roots are evident in the soaring dome and precisely tapered columns while the glazed terra cotta tiles and stunning ocean and sky views are pure Pelican Hill. Set on a picturesque rise slightly apart from the rest of the Resort, its drama and simplicity have made it an unforgettable backdrop for one of life’s most important celebrations.

The unparalleled beauty of the Resort, combined with the talent and creativity of your personal wedding experts, allows for customization without limits.

A Modern Tradition

Every space at The Resort at Pelican Hill allows for a wealth of creative uses. One couple combined the epic Rotunda, the Pacific Ballroom and the Event Lawn to set the scene for a stunning Indian wedding. With the help of the Pelican Hill team, they created a vibrant, multi-day celebration complete with a traditional Sangeet on the Pacific Terrace, as well as a grand entrance on horseback. Our dedicated culinary team developed menus featuring traditional Indian cuisine, immersing the guests in the bride and groom’s rich heritage throughout the entire celebration.

Her Treat

It’s almost impossible not to be inspired by the sheer beauty and distinctive personality of the Resort. One bride’s mother, who makes the Resort her home-away-from-home while traveling to Orange County, recognized the perfect opportunity to plan something she knew her daughter would love: an Italian-themed bridal shower. She worked with the Pelican Hill events team to include the essential elements of her daughter’s favorite country, including an olive oil tasting, harvest-inspired oral arrangements, and even a signature cocktail called the Italian Flag. It was the ideal way to gift her daughter with a unique, tailored experience.

The Resort at Pelican Hill, with its breathtaking beauty and unmatched level of service, provides an extraordinary backdrop for activities that are unique to the newlyweds and their families. Working in tandem with your expert wedding professionals, our dedicated team is wholly committed to creating a personalized, meaningful mix of cuisine, décor and events that will captivate your guests.

Uniquely You

Let the Pelican Hill team transform every moment of your wedding into an unforgettable event you can truly call your own. Whether your dream wedding includes late-night bites reminiscent of your first date, a heartfelt goodbye brunch for guests with a bloody mary bar, or even a contemporary Opera performance during your reception, our creative staff will bring it to life.

The Resort at Pelican Hill and its surrounding areas boast an endless array of attractions to explore. Before you walk down the aisle, set aside an afternoon of pampering at The Spa or an invigorating round of ocean view golf. After the ceremony, invite your guests to explore upscale shopping, miles of beaches and other activities that neighbor the grounds. Pelican Hill’s prime, coastal location makes it the ideal place to make the most of every precious moment.


Wedding planning at The Resort at Pelican Hill begins with a minimum $250,000 food & beverage commitment over the celebratory weekend.
