Palm Springs and the surrounding area is a mecca for golf, hiking, tennis, mid-century modern architecture, pool parties, unique hotels & fashionable resorts, festivals, and dining. The area is also a mecca for weddings and every year thousands of couples from throughout America and the world come to Palm Springs to exchange their wedding vows.
Despite the overwhelming circumstances brought on by the Coronavirus, weddings are still taking place and many adjustments can be made to keep people safe. The nice weather and lack of precipitation in the Palm Springs area make this lovely desert community an ideal place for outdoor weddings.
During these uncertain times, smaller weddings of just a few to up to fifty people are very popular. A great and increasingly popular way for friends and family who cannot attend the wedding to witness it is to broadcast the ceremony virtually on such streaming services as Zoom, Facetime, Facebook Live, Instagram, Skype, Team, Vimeo, InEventor, and others.

He can also suggest top-notch caterers, florists, and officiants.
For decades, the greater Palm Springs area has been one of the most gay-friendly towns in America.
