In case you missed the entertainment news from this past weekend, Chance the Rapper and his longtime girlfriend Kirsten Corley got married at The Resort at Pelican Hill in Newport Beach, California on Saturday, March 9th in an exclusive seaside ceremony overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The pair exchanged vows before 150 guests, including family and celebrity friends with famous faces such as Kim Kardashian, Kanye West and Dave Chappelle in attendance.

With its whimsical ceremony venues and the finest five-star personalized service, it’s no wonder that the famed couple chose to tie the knot there. Selecting the perfect location for one’s special day is one of life’s most memorable decisions and The Resort at Pelican Hill transforms every day of one’s stay into an unforgettable experience.

Upon arrival to Pelican Hill, guests are immediately greeted with breathtaking panoramic views of the Pacific set next to stunning terra cotta Italian architecture. Nestled along one of the most pristine and protected coastal enclaves remaining in Southern California, this sprawling resort is scattered amidst hundreds of ancient olive trees bringing a love of all-things Tuscan to the chic town of Newport Beach.

The sprawling cliffside resort offers 300-plus accommodations in all. There are several room categories to choose from including bungalow guest rooms and suites and larger-sized villas. The former provides apartment-style lodging, all of which feature terraces, fireplaces, lavish bathrooms and décor that highlights soft neutrals and natural textures. The resort’s villas are larger in size and particularly attractive to brides and grooms and their guests. These 2-, 3- and 4-bedroom villas are the most luxurious option with their own dedicated staff and around-the-clock butler service. Each villa includes the typical upscale features – a fireplace, walk-in shower and 500 thread-count linens to name a few of the offerings – in addition to a well-equipped kitchen and private garage for each villa. Guests staying in the villas are also granted private access to the 10,000-square-foot clubhouse, which provides a more intimate environment, as well as a villa-only restaurant, fitness center and private pool and cabanas.

The world-renowned spa includes 22 private treatment rooms and separate men’s and women’s locker rooms with steam/sauna facilities and saltwater Roman soaking tubs.
