A quick walk across the lawn and a jump over the train tracks will find you with your feet in the sand and ocean breeze in your face within minutes. With its stunning ocean front views and historic Spanish-revival architecture, Ole Hanson Beach Club is the ideal beach-side wedding venue located in San Clemente.
The on-site bridal suite with a view of the Grand Lawn is a comfortable spot for bridal parties to relax and nibble on treats while having their hair and makeup done.
The bridal suite also hosts a full length mirror and countless stuffed chairs for the ultimate getting ready room.
The ocean is always within sight at an Ole Hanson Beach Club wedding. From the balcony overlooking the pool, to the open patio for your reception, you will find many gorgeous spots for a first look or couple’s portraits.
The founder of the city of San Clemente, Ole Hanson, was an American politician who established the public beach club in 1928. Called the “Spanish Village by the Sea,” the club underwent a massive renovation in 2014 to preserve the architecture and integrity of the building, and reopened to the public in 2016.
Wedding ceremonies are held on the Grand Lawn, which is a beautifully manicured lawn framed by classic palm trees, and, of course, an ocean view.
With the beach only minutes away, steal away for some alone time with your new spouse and capture gorgeous photos at the same time. Ocean shots by the beach are a must, and with the SoCal sunset framing each photo, you’re sure to capture some stunning moments.
We love capturing small details like this Polaroid guest book! Creativity is always in abundance at Ole Hanson and unique decor such as these pictured below blend in flawlessly with the wooden accents and natural lighting.
The West Terrace is the place to be when the reception begins. Entertain your guests with the incredible meals prepared by 24 Carrots’ award-winning chefs and team of experienced events staff there to assist.
The Main Room, an indoor space on the second floor of the venue, is the perfect place to dance the night away with your guests. Also great for cocktail hour or even your dinner reception, this enclosed space features original windows, detailed stained glass, and exposed wooden beams.
Conclude your Ole Hanson Beach Club wedding with a romantic sendoff, featuring lanterns, flowers, and the striking silhouette of palm trees in the distance.
