Elegant Nuptials & Cocktail Hour at Pelican Hill

November 3rd, 2017

One of the most dreamt about wedding location is The Resort at Pelican Hill and not only because of its breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean, but it is truly the definition of luxury and elegance. Just tucked off the coast of Newport Beach, with the peaceful setting of olive trees, lavender and the iconic rotunda this is one of most sought after locations to wed. And this is where Paris and Alex decided on for their nuptials and reception.

After the initial design walk through it was decided that the Rotunda Lawn would be used for ceremony and cocktail hour for their 300 guests. Paris had a very clear vision about the design and colors for her event and wanted something very European and to exude understated elegance. With much deliberation, she decided to go with ivory chiffon fabric to cover the columns of the imposing Rotunda structure and keep the cream, white and ivory for her flower palette.


Three beautiful crystal chandeliers in different sizes and shapes embellished the inside of Rotunda while two large urns with gorgeous flowers graced the outside of Rotunda. Flowers lined the aisle for our lovely bride to walk down. Chivari chairs dressed in ivory chiffon was another testament to Paris’s timeless classic taste.



An eight piece string orchestra was ready to start as guests arrived. The other half of the lawn decor was a perfect compliment to the ceremony area with ivory lounge furniture in Classic French Regency style and the cocktail tables dressed with the same chiffon linen as the chairs completed the cohesive look. The end result was ethereal, romantic and elegant.

The two mothers looked fabulous in their gowns along with the entire bridal party. Our radiant bride walked down the aisle in her Vera Wang gown with her Dad to meet her handsome groom in Ralph Lauren. While the string music was playing. Weather could not have been more perfect with sun not being intense, clear ocean view and slight breeze, it was a magical set up. Bishop performed the beautiful ceremony and the air was filled with romance and magic. Once the bridal party and couple walked at the recessional it was all about cheers, joy and laughter. Guests transitioned to the cocktail area where servers were ready to pass champagne and delicious hors deouvers. The bars were open on both sides which became busy quickly. A table was dedicated for the guest book where guests could write warm wishes for the couple. A large mirror bearing seating chart for the guests further added to the ambiance. With lovely music, delicious food and drinks, amazing setting and most importantly our good looking couple and their families and friends, it certainly was a night to remember.







Stay tuned for our reception and after party next week!
