"We decided right away that we wanted our wedding to be more fun and less formal. Michael and I both work in the entertainment industry and have the personalities to match. We wanted very much for our guests to have a great time above all else, and decided to throw out some of the conventional norms in favor of things we actually like. When we first visited The Saguaro Hotel in Palm Springs we knew right away that it would be the perfect venue. Stunning mountain views, funky design, and lots of color: just the vibe we wanted.
On the day of our wedding, we opted for a short outdoor ceremony. The majority of our guests came from cold states, Washington, New York, and New Jersey, and we were very happy to show off our California December weather. Palm Springs was nice for our local guests too, as its just far enough away from LA and OC to feel like an actual vacation get-away. After the ceremony, we moved inside to the Saguaro's ballroom for food, beverages, and dancing. We were very lucky in that the Saguaro has an excellent on site chef, who put together an amazing Cajun meal for our guests. Over the Rainbow Cupcakes created a beautiful cupcake spread along with a cake that perfectly matched our decor and tasted marvelous. I was also able to find the absolute perfect photographer, Ashley Durham, who was so fun to work with and so great at her job. Our photos were stunning and perfectly captured the feel of our wedding." -bride & groom
