Palm Springs has long been a favorite wedding destination. Gorgeous weather, plenty of venues and old Hollywood charm put it high on the lists of couples who want an immersive wedding experience for their guests.
But not all venues are created equal. Some are large resorts with little personality and a lost-amongst-the-weeds feel, while others lack the true mid-century modern vibe that makes Palm Springs famous.
We’ve photographed plenty of Palm Springs weddings, but our favorite venue by far is the Colony Palms Hotel. Read on for why it’s our favorite Palm Springs wedding venue!
Since 1936, the Colony Palms Hotel has been known as one of Palm Springs’ most iconic and luxurious downtown hotels. The property is surrounded by lush vegetation, Spanish-inspired architecture and, of course, amazing views of the surrounding mountains.
The hotel features 57 guest rooms, suites and casitas, brilliantly colored with original mosaic tiles and fabrics, rich woods, and black-and-white vintage photos. Most guest rooms open to a lush central courtyard and lively pool. Each room offers luxurious linens and modern amenities to enhance your stay.
When it comes to dining, the Purple Palm has it all. The Purple Palm's approachable menu of California fare and their cleverly crafted cocktail list serve as reminders of the Colony Palms' colorful and rambunctious past.
Located one block off the city’s main design district, the Colony Palms Hotel just steps from shopping, dining and wandering.
Palm Springs is a relatively short drive from every major metropolitan area in Southern California. What’s more, the hotel is a 10-minute drive from Palm Springs airport—perfect if you’re expecting guests flying in from out of town.
With 57 guest rooms, suites and casitas, the Colony Palms Hotel is the perfect size for most weddings!
The hotel also offers a full buyout option! So if you’re planning a wedding weekend extravaganza, the Colonly Palms Hotel is the perfect option!
