San Clemente Wedding Venue
150 East Avenida Magdalena
San Clemente, California 92672
Wedgewood San Clemente offers a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere less than a mile from the beach, and its brand new ceremony site boasts fairway vistas, ocean breezes and peeks of the Pacific. The property’s California Spanish architecture and inviting reception area will no doubt appeal to brides, but they’ll really appreciate all the extras that add value to this golf course venue.
Since the pre-wedding experience often sets the tone for the whole day, you’ll be delighted to learn that there are a couple of nearby options at your disposal. A short walk away, the Hampton Inn and Suites has put aside a spacious room for your preparations. This arrangement is also convenient, since guests—and the bridal party!—often opt to stay here. Alternatively, you might choose to primp at an incredibly charming B&B adjacent to the greens. This intimate cottage has plenty of spots for you to pose for photos, too, such as a sitting room with French doors, a tiled staircase and a balcony. Right outside, the award-winning European gardens are an enchanting locale for capturing shots of that “first look” between you and your groom before you tie the knot.
Your guests, meanwhile, await your arrival on the club’s ceremony lawn. Designed with both historic and modern touches, it features a curving walkway of traditional San Clemente tile that leads to a raised stage with clean-lined columns and a wood-beam canopy. A waterfall gently spills over rocks below the platform, and three soaring Eucalyptus trees frame the scene. This area is completely wired, so you can amplify any musical accompaniment and add lights in the evening.
From here it’s just a short walk to the clubhouse for cocktails on the wide, stone-floored Patio that wraps around the building. In the main section of this space, multiple conversation groupings with comfy seating and shade umbrellas, along with a brick fire pit, encourage mingling. From the rear of the Patio, you can catch nice sunset views off to the west. (Be sure to have your photographer snap some “magic hour” couple shots on the golf course, with the sun setting over the ocean behind you.)
When you’re ready for dinner, two sets of French doors open to the Banquet Room. Spacious and airy, it showcases a beamed cathedral ceiling, lovely iron chandeliers and a soft, neutral palette. There’s a built-in dance floor, and large windows that let in natural light during the day. If you’re hosting a large group, you can double your space by folding back the dividing doors and accessing the adjoining Restaurant and bar. And, of course, the Patio is always available for savoring the cool, night air and starry sky.
At the end of the evening, your out-of-town friends and relatives will be happy to know that they can stay overnight within walking distance of this beautiful setting. Thanks to Wedgewood’s affiliation with a local hotel, you and your guests will receive a discount on the guest rooms you book.
The staff at Wedgewood San Clemente go out of their way to make everything easy and convenient, with packages to suit virtually every couple and suggestions on how to personalize your celebration. They can also help you schedule a golf party or San Clemente tour to make your special event even more memorable.
