Welcome to Paradise, Love Birds!

MAX AND POPPY

Closer than the Caribbean and equally romantic, the warm desert oasis of Palm Springs remains a well-kept secret despite its piping hot popularity as a prime wedding destination.

Couples who drop in for a much-needed weekend getaway often spend a lazy afternoon by the pool agreeing they’ll soon return to exchange vows (and celebrate many anniversaries in style).

Stretching back to balmy evenings when the Rat Pack rolled into town, the ageless, timeless Coachella Valley has been a hideout for couples looking to host a picture-perfect outdoor wedding or a classic weekend celebration filled with golf, tennis, shopping, and spa time.

Days begin with the warm sun on your shoulders and wind down with stars that twinkle in a clear, open sky framed by silhouettes of the rugged San Jacinto and Santa Rosa mountains. Pools glow a translucent aquamarine, palm fronds rustle in the light breeze, and glasses clink filled with fresh, citrus-infused cocktails made with fruit pulled from a tree right next to the bar. A scenic drive in any direction offers big, blue skies and inspiring mountain views. Slow down, hold hands, and take it all in.

As a reasonably sized region where it’s easy to get around, the Palm Springs area abounds with an incredible variety of venues for weddings, receptions, and honeymoons. Get together with friends and family at a plush resort, and then move to a boutique hotel for a private honeymoon. Ride a trail on horseback, coast on cruiser bikes through the back streets, see houses built at the height of the midcentury modern architecture boom, shop designer boutiques, unwind at a spa, play golf, soar in a hot air balloon, taste world-class fare, or lounge for hours in a hammock made for two.

Welcome to paradise. Get cozy and stay a while!
