One Venue, Six Ways: The Parker Palm Springs

Wedding Style & Decor

Today, we're starting a new blog series where we'll feature a favorite wedding venue along with photographs from six different weddings that took place there. The goal is to help demonstrate how versatile these wedding venues can be and how, with the right décor elements, the space can take on a dramatically different vibe. First: The Jonathan Adler-designed Parker Palm Springs hotel, where most couples exchange vows on the lush Croquet Lawn.

Ceremony #1: Colorful and Casual (above)
This couple wanted their ceremony to feel more relaxed, like an epic backyard party. To create that look, they included both ceremony chairs as well as picnic-style seating with Mexican blankets and throw pillows, and lined the aisle with tiny trinkets and bells hung from bright-pink string.

Ceremony #2: Romantic and Vintage
For a romantic look, this couple decorated the ceremony space with wooden embroidery hoops featuring swatches of vintage lace.

Ceremony #3: Retro
If your wedding aesthetic is more Palm Springs-mod, line the ceremony aisle with graphic, glossy-white cubes topped with florals and suspend vintage-inspired lampshades from the trees to serve as a backdrop.

Ceremony #4: Classic
By incorporating Chiavari chairs, pillars topped with lush arrangements of hydrangeas, and suspended lanterns, the venue's croquet lawn takes on a more classic and traditional feel.
