So everyone knows how much CLD loves our Los Angeles office and everything SoCal has to offer, but lately we’ve noticed more and more interest in one amazing location that just a mere 2 hours away from our offices on the coast… Palm Springs! While many people equate Palm Springs as being a winter destination for those who live out of state (or as that crazy-hipster locale for Coachella), we can tell you that this valley has so much to offer! For anyone determined to have an outdoor wedding with a high guarantee of “perfect weather,” Palm Springs and the Coachella Valley is picture perfect for nearly 9 months out of the year (it’s just too hot out there in the summer… sorry!) Here is a cute little map to give you an idea of how much space there actually is out in “the desert”:

The most popular locale out here is definitely Palm Springs, but Rancho Mirage, Palm Desert, Indian Wells and La Quinta also offer a wide variety of venues for the perfect outdoor wedding. From golf courses, boutique hotels, casinos, luxury resorts, cute little B&Bs, this area can accommodate almost any type of wedding. So without further ado, here is an introduction to a few fantastic venues to give you a taste of what we are talking about! The Parker Palm Springs, a fabulous hotel! Popular with celebrities seeking a retreat from the big city.
