Ole Hanson Beach Club Grand Reopening

Ole Hanson Beach Club is a well-known coastal landmark that embodies the true Southern California beach experience with its panoramic ocean views and historic roots, Ole Hanson is an ideal event venue for a seaside wedding or special event.

Named after Ole Hanson, founder and developer of San Clemente’s “Spanish Village by the Sea”, the 1928 Spanish-Revival-style white stucco building features traditional arches, elaborate hand-painted tiles, ornate stain-glass windows, and original crafted wrought iron grillwork.

24 carrots catering and events opened the doors to our event industry peers, to welcome this quintessential California venue to the map. With sunset views and rooftop receptions, it’s hard to beat this picture perfect spot!

 

 

Many thanks to our gracious vendors who generously contributed their time and talents:

Like You a Waffle Lot

Our love for yummy breakfast carbs runs deep, even before Stranger Things make waffles a statement piece. Our kitchen played with some savory flavors of this favorite treat, which leads us to believe that waffles can be eaten at any time of the day, right? Whether you prefer sweet or savory, we’re strong believers in that! Because we sure like them a waffle lot!

 Cornbread Waffle + Bacon + Cheddar + Green Chile + Scallions + Burnt Honey Butter

Chorizo + Cotjia + Cilantro + Fried Egg

Potato Waffle + Smoked Salmon + Capers + Red Onion

 

PS If you’re looking for some brunch ideas, hop on over to our Love You a Brunch shoot featured in Ceremony Magazine in 2014! To this day it’s one of our favorites! We also have a full brunch menu, so don’t hesitate to reach out to us for menus and details. It’s the perfect menu for a shower or post-wedding celebration!
