Perched upon 504 acres of some of the most exquisite land anywhere, 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. Abundant olive trees, generous open spaces and a delicate balance of architecture and landscape create a sense of unequaled privacy.

Space Capacities


La Cappella La Cappella

La Cappella

La Cappella captures the drama of its setting with two picture windows that look onto the Pacific Ocean. The fireplace and wood-beam ceiling sets the tone of warmth and intimacy in the room and offers the couple a flexible, indoor space to create a moment they will cherish forever. In addition, the Bridal Lounge allows the bride a quiet space to prepare before the ceremony. La Cappella is steps away from all of the Resort’s selection of event space and features a private entrance from the main hotel.

Mar Vista Mar Vista

Mar Vista

Though you have all the amenities of our world-class Resort, Mar Vista is designed to offer total privacy, standing separate from the hotel and its guests. Ideally located, it consists of the elegant Mar Vista Ballroom, La Cappella and the Event Lawn with a Palladian-inspired rotunda. A separate entrance and dedicated valet staff ensure complete exclusivity.

Event Lawn Event Lawn

Event Lawn

The majesty of the natural surroundings, gentle ocean breezes and the feeling that the whole world has taken pause for this special moment — this is the outdoor space that every bride dreams of for her special day. A manicured oval lawn spills out to the end of the ridge, where a timeless, iconic Italian rotunda is perched 300 feet above the ocean.
