Did you know that Palm Springs has one of the highest LGBT populations in the nation? And the mayor has been known to say that Palm Springs has had a long history of welcoming gays and lesbians. When California briefly legalized gay weddings in 2008, the city hosted over 600 marriage ceremonies in City Hall alone. Gay weddings in Palm Springs aren’t an add-on or an extra, they’re the norm.
Maybe that’s why our team of non denominational officiants has performed hundreds of gay weddings, vow renewals, and elopements – even before California gave the green light in 2013. That hands-on experience in the Palm Springs region has revealed to us which vendors are gay-friendly and which ones are, well, gay-enthusiastic. There is a noticeable difference in the end results!
Schedule a consultation to start planning your Palm Springs wedding!
When you’re planning your same-sex wedding, we can help find the florists, photographers, DJs, live musicians, singers, decor, transportation and rental companies, venues, bakeries, videographers, caterers, restaurants and entertainers who will be passionate about working with you to realize your special day dreams. And there are so many to choose from – as Lavender Magazine put it:
Palm Springs embraces its gayness fully, and locales like downtown’s world-class Palm Springs Art Museum and the 6,000-foot Palm Springs Aerial Tramway enthusiastically host same-sex weddings. The former desert homes of stars like Lucille Ball, Frank Sinatra, and Cher are all available as short-term rentals, making for a glamorous outdoor ceremony as well as a posh vacation home for you and/or your wedding posse. Many couples planning their destination wedding in Palm Springs often plan smaller ceremonies and host large parties poolside.
Although same-sex couples are finally being treated as equals under the law – especially here in California – there aren’t very many wedding planners who specialize in gay weddings. Our Palm Springs wedding coordinators may not have set out to become the gay wedding experts but after working with so many couples, it was almost inevitable. Let us handle the legal and social nuances of getting married in California. With us handling the details, you can relax and simply enjoy your wedding along with the beauty of Palm Springs.
