Share It On Your Social Media!

Hello again! I’m back for yet another installment of The Best Orange County Wedding Venues & this month we’ll be covering San Clemente Shores by Wedgewood! If you missed part one, part, two, or part three, but sure to check them out once you’re finished reading this installment! 


San Clemente Shores by Wedgewood is a gorgeous outdoor/indoor venue with a stunning garden and reception area. Located within the confines of a scenic country club, the grounds are perfectly manicured and more expansive than you’d expect! The Spanish architecture and vaulted ceilings in the grand ballroom truly transport you to Europe, making your wedding day feel even more extravagant and special. Enough about the grounds–let’s dive into the details!


The Bridal Suite

While the San Clemente Shores by Wedgewood doesn’t offer a private bridal suite, it is directly across the street from a Hampton Inn & it is about a ten minute drive from several other beachside accommodations. Consequently, if you’d like for all of your bridesmaids to get ready in the same place, you’re 100% able to rent a hotel room or air bnb with even better views very nearby! While it can be stressful to have to transport necessities from bridal suite to wedding venue after getting ready, the proximity of accommodations nearby should make it a total breeze!


The Ceremony Area


San Clemente Shores by Wedgewood is best known for their gorgeous outdoor garden area for Wedding ceremonies. Being located within a beach-adjacent country club, their outdoor ceremony area is perfectly maintained and absolutely gorgeous. The aisle is absolutely beautiful, surrounded by greenspace and with a view of the gorgeous beach houses behind it. At the end of the aisle, there is plenty of space on either side for as many chairs as you could need, a raised platform underneath an arbor for your “I do’s” and a paved platform underneath for the wedding party. Words can’t quite do it justice, so I’ve included some photos below!


The Reception Area

The San Clemente Shores reception area is absolutely to die for. It is an indoor space with Spanish architecture & an expansive dancefloor that will have your guests dancing all night long. The reception area also includes a small outdoor patio for guests to spend time on during gorgeous sunny summer days or cool fall nights. I also can’t forget to mention that this wedding venue offers several different packages ranging from DIY to all inclusive. So, if you don’t want to have to lift a single finger, you have the option to purchase an all inclusive package that will allow the venue to take care of everything for you–from bartending services to food and exit sparklers! You truly can’t go wrong with the San Clemente Shores by Wedgewood wedding venue!


Overall, the San Clements Shores by Wedgewood venue is the perfect wedding venue for couples looking for an elevated, outdoor/indoor wedding day experience! It’s especially amazing for spring, summer and fall weddings when the weather is mild and the gorgeous views are able to be fully taken in and enjoyed.
