There’s obvious eye candy in Palm Springs. From the homes, to the hotels and even the visitor’s center, all the architecture here has that modernist touch. Never before have we been to a place where there is attention to detail on such a scale. It’s like everywhere we look there’s a great wedding picture waiting to be taken!

In Palm Springs, it’s not just what’s on the outside that matters, it’s the inside too! Each of these beautiful places is decorated to the nines. Stepping inside any of the boutique hotels or touring the incredible residences is like walking into the 1950’s with original Saarinen and Eames pieces beautifully lit under starburst chandeliers.

Established as a hollywood retreat with fashionable resorts and rat-pack favorite hang outs, Palm Springs has always been a place for fun and leisure. To this day, that laissez-faire attitude still permeates. It’s no wonder that couples come here to celebrate their love with each other and with their family and friends!

With all of the lounging around to do, you’ll want to pack your favorite leisure outfits. Between the heat and the sunshine,  we find that bright bikinis and light kaftans work best. Here’s what’s inspiring our Palm Springs wardrobe.

If there’s one thing that Palm Springs has, it’s character. With it’s brightly colored facades and beautifully streamlined architecture set against the San Jacinto mountains, it is as picturesque and unique as they come. With the lively parties and dreamy weddings that have been taking place for years, we’re starting to think there’s something magical in the desert air!
