About

On WeddingWire since 2016

San Clemente, California, is home to Ole Hanson Beach Club, a historic wedding and event venue. Nestled near the Dana Point Harbor, this white stucco manor offers both a lush lawn setting and tranquil waterfront views for couples and their guests to enjoy. The stunning grounds and various in-house services will ensure that you and your guests have an unforgettable celebration.

Facilities and Capacity

Ole Hanson Beach Club sports 1928 Spanish Revival architecture, giving your big day a classically elegant aesthetic. The rich details allow up to 175 guests to travel back in time with 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 while also complementing the greenery of the surrounding landscape. The main event space, the Great Room, features polished hardwood floors and dark wooden beams running along the cathedral ceiling, adding a luxurious finish to your celebration. If you prefer an outdoor ceremony, the Grand Lawn is a lush setting with surrounding palm trees and sweeping ocean views to complete your altar setting. Couples are also welcome to use the two open-air terraces to enjoy the stunning views of the land and sea. Parking is available onsite, with wheelchair accessibility to help everyone arrives at the venue safely.

Services Offered

Ole Hanson Beach Club is owned and operated by the event planning company 24 Carrots. The team will work closely with you to make sure each detail, from your catering menu to your table linens, matches your vision. Chairs and tables are available in-house, along with a dance floor, lighting option, and various decor rentals. The property also features a get-ready suite, where you and your entourage can prepare for the altar in style and comfort. In addition to the big day, the venue can host wedding showers and engagement parties.

Best day ever!

We just want to say a huge thank you to 24 Carrots for making our day incredible! We got married at Ole Hanson Beach Club in August 2022 and are so thankful to have had 24 Carrots as our Caterer. Special thank you to Nasime who was our main point of contact throughout the planning process, Amanda who was the lead event manager on our big day, and Sarah who answered our many many questions prior to signing! 24 Carrots has a professional, experienced team who guided us through the entire process – making us feel comfortable and answering our many questions. We knew we were in good hands, and our experience on our big day proved it so!

At every step along the way, we felt reassured by the responsiveness and professionalism that we experienced with 24 Carrots. Things went to the next level when we went for our tasting. The entire experience had been customized for us – from the signs welcoming us once we walked through the front door, to the room where our tasting was held. This made us feel so special! And the food was SO GOOD! The tasting was easily one of our favorite parts of wedding planning.

It was wonderful to work with Nasime throughout the planning process! She was responsive, on top of all of the details, and answered all of our many many questions (trust me, there were a lot) with patience and clarity.

Amanda took such good care of us on our big day! She was professional, very clearly experienced, and a joy to interact with! We know there was a lot of work going on behind the scenes, but everything was smooth and seamless for us! If there was a problem, we sure didn’t know about it!

The food was incredible! We enjoyed it so much and many of our guests commented on how delicious the food was! I (the bride) am gluten-free and I was so pleased by all of the options they had available to me in their offerings. We were able to craft a full menu where I could eat everything at our wedding - amazing! They also had vegetarian and vegan options available, which we and our guests greatly appreciated. The 24 Carrots team made sure that we (the bride and the groom) were well fed the entire evening from placing a plate of hors d'oeuvres and our drinks of choice in our bridal suite so we could eat & drink immediately after the ceremony, to placing another full plate of hors d’oeuvres on our sweetheart table so we’d have food immediately after our grand entrance, to bringing our dinner plates directly to us so we didn’t have to go to the buffet, to sending us home with to-go boxes of food! Amanda checked in often to make sure we were doing well & that we had enough food. They also took care of our bridal party and had drinks waiting for them as they exited the ceremony. They even took care of my grandmother by bringing her dinner directly to her - talk about care & class! The entire day-of staff provided such wonderful customer service to us and our guests!

That was the best wedding we’ve ever been to and, while we’re biased, we don’t think that’s an overstatement. It was phenomenal to work with you all — thanks for making our big day so special!

Amazing Venue!

Ole Hanson is incredible! As a wedding planner, it’s so important to have a wedding day team that compliments each other and the venue and it’s staff us arguably the most important part of that. The venue itself is stunning, but the staff that work at Ole Hanson make my job so easy. It’s always such a joy to be on site. Thank you Ole Hanson team for making my job easy!

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.
