Hi there everyone & thanks for checking out our blog!
If you have followed our company at all (you should be following us on Instagram-https://www.instagram.com/cseservices/), you know we work in the Palm Springs desert area quite frequently. Popular wedding months are March through May and October through November. During these months, the desert area has some of the most beautiful scenery and some of the coolest venues we have worked at! Here are a list of the top 5 wedding venues we like in the Palm Springs area, in no particular order:
1. La Chureya
This Spanish-style estate in the heart of The Movie Colony with a pool, grotto-style spa and tennis court is one of our favorites! The bridal party can stay onsite with 5 bedrooms which can sleep up to 10. The property features a front lawn where the ceremony often takes place, an adjacent courtyard perfect for cocktail hour, and a beautiful green backyard and pool area perfect for the reception! There are facilities in the house for catering, but the catering companies usually setup in the covered carport area! Visit their website:
2. The Lautner Compound
Located in the Desert Hot Springs area, this beautiful mid-century modern resort boasts vacation rentals and an incredible wedding or special event space. This space is adjacent to the living areas and has a dreamy open air feel. Appropriately called, “The Park”, this 10,000 sq. ft. area is located near the Ranch House which has been recently renovated to feature two distinctive bars. Catering has multiple entries and areas to set up and the architecture and design make The Lautner Compound a “must look” for desert wedding and event venues. Check them out on the web!
3. Cree Estate
Sprawled over two and a half acres of lush landscaping, the Cree Estate welcomes guests with a grand Spanish fountain and large circular driveway. Gorgeous orange and lemon trees are mixed in with palm trees all throughout the property. The house itself is an authentic Spanish style home, all adobe, with weathered wooden doors that could be a gorgeous photo backdrop. The property features several spaces for entertaining and can be used interchangeably as a ceremony or reception site. We love these multi-area properties as you can lead your guests through an experience as they celebrate your special day with you. You can stay onsite as well and with 6 bedrooms, it's easy to host guests the next day for a post wedding brunch. We definitely recommend checking out this one-of-a-kind property for your wedding or special event!
4. Casa De Monte Vista
Casa De Monte Vista is the perfect destination for weddings, parties, retreats, corporate events, or birthdays! This property enables full customization by allowing you to bring in your own vendors or choosing from their list of preferred vendors. As a completely walled and gated private estate, Casa De Monte Vista has a cater-ready kitchen, lush landscaping throughout, beautiful pool and incredible mountain views. The venue has an ideal location, being only 6 blocks from downtown Palm Springs for easy access to night life if you plan on having a wedding after party! Check out this venue at the link below!
5. Sand Acre Estate
Nestled in the heart of The Movie Colony neighborhood, Sand Acre is elegant, secluded, and stately with expansive lawns and high gates and walls for privacy. The property features fruit trees, a private tennis court, and a beautiful, picturesque, spanish style estate with 5 bedrooms. Incredible views of the San Jacinto Mountains rise in the background. The property allows you to bring in outside catering for the ultimate in a customized event experience. Click the link below for more information about this incredible venue!
Of course this list is not exhaustive, but if you're thinking of getting married in the desert, they are all worth checking out! Contact us if you have any questions about the venues, vendor referrals (catering) or to get a feel of our experience working there.
