Oceanfront Weddings are Pelican Brewing Company’s Specialty
Have you always dreamed of starting your story at the beach? Pounding surf. Soaring dunes. The dramatic Haystack Rock and Cape Kiwanda in the distance. Spectacular sunsets with award-winning beer and cuisine. For the most memorable oceanfront wedding and reception, there’s no backdrop more beautiful than Pelican Brewing Company’s beachfront location in Pacific City, Oregon.
The Pelican Brewing Company story started over two decades ago—right there on the same stunning stretch of beach. And Team Pelican wants to share its spectacular home with couples who are starting their own new story together.
Pelican not only offers the best beach access on the Oregon Coast, but the brewery staff excels at planning all the details for a private, intimate ceremony and celebration. Pelican offers a spacious oceanfront banquet room, private beachfront for outdoor ceremonies, award-winning beer and unique local cuisine.
As a part of the Kiwanda Hospitality Group, Pelican also offers a number of different lodging options for event guests—from luxury oceanfront rooms at the new Headlands Coastal Lodge & Spa to the boutique oceanview rooms at Inn at Cape Kiwanda and private houses for rent through Shorepine Rentals. Guests can even rent luxury Airstream travel trailers at Hart’s Camp—an offbeat lodging option right across from Pelican.
The floor-to-ceiling windows in Pelican‘s wood-trimmed banquet room showcase stunning views of the ocean, Pacific City’s own Haystack Rock, and Cape Kiwanda, with ample space for 40 to 90 reception guests. While the Pelican vibe leans toward casual, event staff know how to dress the space up for the most elegant of wedding events.
Because Pelican offers access to a privately-owned beach area directly in front of the brewpub, wedding planners don’t need to bother with additional licenses or permits—Pelican event staff has it handled. They’ll even rope off the special area to keep the celebration private and open only to event guests.
The Perfect Pairings
The brewery is internationally known for award-winning craft beers and innovative food and beer pairings that enhance the flavors in every dish and brew. The venue offers a range of simple to extravagant menus, each designed by Pelican’s classically-trained chef using locally sourced ingredients. Six house beers are always available on tap, along with rotating seasonal and specialty selections. Pelican also serves a wide variety of house wines and champagne and allows event planners to bring their own. Liquor can be purchased on a per-drink basis.
“One of the most majestic places I have been to and to be able to get married here was a dream. All the staff was absolutely amazing and they made sure I was taken care of all night. But Mariah, the event planner from the Pelican, made my wedding perfect,” says Morgan who posted about her June 2018 wedding on www.WeddingWire.com. “We are from out of town and needed help with planning our big day. Mariah answered my million emails, sent pictures for ideas from past weddings, and helped with recommendations. I honestly don’t know how I would have managed without her. All of our guests were blown away with our wedding day, and how perfect it went. If you want a beautiful beach wedding, great food and beer, choose the Pelican!”
