About

Up to 150 guests

Couples can host their wedding at the Ole Hanson Beach Club, a historic wedding venue in the Orange County, California area. This white stucco building in a 1928 Spanish-Revival style features gorgeous details inside and sunny lawns outside with ocean views. Approximately ten minutes away from the Dana Point Harbor, this venue overlooks the bright blue waves of the Pacific Ocean.

Facilities and Capacity
Up to 175 guests can travel back in time at this historic landmark. The building itself features traditional arched doorways, hand-painted tiles, elaborate stained-glass windows and original wrought-iron grillwork. Red clay roof tiles add a pop of color to the white stucco of the building's exterior, and compliments the greenery of the surrounding landscape. The main room, called the Great Room, inside the venue features polished hardwood floors and dark wooden beams running along the cathedral ceiling. Couples may also use the terraces for their wedding event. Two open-air terraces connect to the Great Room and provide views of the Grand Lawn and Pacific Ocean. The Grand Lawn is the venue's outdoor space. Perfect for oceanside ceremonies, couples can set up an arbor or arch in the grass, framed by palm trees, with ocean waves in the background to exchange their vows and begin their lives together.

Services Offered
Couples are invited to host their ceremony and reception jointly at the Ole Hanson Beach Club. In addition, couples can also host their bridal shower and engagement party at the venue. There, they will find services such as event rentals, parking and valet, lighting and sound services, and help with set up on their big day.

    The most gorgeous San Clemente spot!

    I'm the owner of Tayler Ashley Photography and I've had the pleasure of working at Ole Hanson Beach Club. If you're looking for the perfect mix of spanish and coastal style, this is your spot! The views are incredible and I truly enjoyed shooting here.

    Ole Hanson- Stunning Views and Great Food

    My husband and I got engaged February of 2020 right before everything shut down due to COVID, but luckily we were able to see Ole Hanson. As soon as we saw the ocean views and the flexibility of the space we fell in love. The team at 24 Carrots was so helpful with any questions we had especially with our constantly changing guest count and actually helped us to find our Coordinator with their recommendations. It was so easy to pick out all the decor and rentals through them so we didn’t have to find a rental company, and we were able to do everything we wanted. The food was absolutely phenomenal and I still crave the tuna on wonton spoons. If you love a calm beach town, ocean views and amazing food I would highly recommend.

    Spanish Style with an Ocean Backdrop

    This is such a hidden gem, but I don’t think it will stay hidden for long. That’s because Ole Hanson is amazing in itself. The view overlooking the water, the Spanish style with details that make for beautiful photography backdrops, and the amazing staff! We looked at 4 venues, two of which were run by 24 Carrots Catering. Both venues by 24K had staff that were informative, friendly, and creative with different ideas to help you envision your day. We ultimately decided on Ole Hanson because it would offer our guests, which were majority east coasters, a great opportunity for a California beach vacation. What more could you ask for than getting married with the beach as your backdrop, brunching rooftop near the beach, dancing inside with beautiful wood details? This venue makes it EASY if you want to keep it simple. It offers so many details already that there’s no need to splurge on additional decor and details. The best part is they make it so simple to connect with the best vendors. Communication is always on point and quick.
