    Pelican Hill did so much for us, and all our guests commented on how it was the best wedding they've ever been to. The view was spectacular, and the food was perfect. Pelican helped us customize a cocktail hour of beer and wine tasting, with cheese and passed appetizers that were so popular. They did a great job finding all the specific beer and wine that we wanted. The bride (me) and the groom were very particular about the beer and the bride's parents were very selective about the wines. We also used the hotel's linens and tableware- which were great. They did a great job with dinner- we did a crab and corn soup for the appetizer and the main course was either filet with lobster risotto or vegetarian risotto. We also had a custom dessert table with a smaller cake to match our chevron ombre wedding invitations, along with champagne jello shots, cinnamon rolls on a stick, three different kinds of cake pops, smores tart, homemade marshmallows, and donuts. Overall- Pelican executed everything perfectly and the staff was nothing but professional and amazing. Our wedding butler Erin was the greatest!!! And of course, thank you to Fernanda the catering manager and Chef Jeff for his wonderful pastry expertise.

    I still get asked a ton of questions about our venue. This place is dreamy! We are so blessed to have amazing parents who made it possible for us to have our wedding here. We love this place. The service was exceptional. And the cake.. OMG to die for.
