Being born and raised in Southern California has always made me partial to beach weddings. However, after spending all of last week baking (with sunblock!) in the desert heat I may have changed my mind. I find desert landscapes equally as beautiful yet so much more unique and unexpected than the typical beach destination. Palm Desert and its surrounding cities are less than two hours from Los Angeles and Orange County and offer a huge variety of venues to choose from, ranging from country clubs and hotels to gorgeous private estates. Its proximity makes it a perfect mini-destination that is still affordable for your guests to get to. The weather is warm year-round, but really heats up from June through August. Perfect for a Spring or Autumn wedding! Plus, the wedding photography I’ve seen from desert shoots is absolutely amazing. Check it out for yourself and see if you agree.
What about you? Where would your dream destination wedding be?
