    Breathtaking venue with the best staff!

    If you are looking for a spectacular venue with a breathtaking view—this is it!! We had our wedding and reception at Desert Willow on 11/30/19 and could not be happier!

    Leading up to the wedding, working with the staff was a breeze. Robbie Lomes became the new director shortly after we signed our contract for the venue, and after seeing so many great reviews about Ashley, we were initially bummed she wouldn’t be in charge. However, we could not have been luckier to have Robbie come on board and help us through the planning process. She is so sweet, helpful, and responsive, and she had years of experience from another venue. She always answered even our smallest questions promptly and thoughtfully, and we could not be more grateful to Robbie for how smoothly the planning process and the day of went. She even drove the golf cart around for us after the ceremony so we could get photos around the beautiful golf course! Additionally, all of the other Desert Willow staff were phenomenal, and we had absolutely no complaints.

    The venue and the golf course/mountain view are truly stunning. We had our ceremony and cocktail hour on the terrace (one of the only venues we looked at that didn’t require an outdoor ceremony take place on grass—huge plus for high heels). All of our guests were in awe of how spectacular the location was. The reception we had indoors and it was the perfect size for a 75 person wedding.

    Last, but not least, the Desert Willow has the BEST food we’ve ever had at any wedding venue. We were blown away at our tasting, and all of our guests were just as impressed at our reception.

    In terms of price, this venue was actually much cheaper than others we had looked at in the Palm Springs area or compared to any of the resorts we looked into. There were no venue fees besides the cost per person for food and drink. They provided the chairs, tables, arch, etc. and did all of the set up for us.

    We expected planning a wedding to be a difficult task, but working with Robbie and the Desert Willow staff truly made it a breeze. We couldn’t be luckier to have such a breathtaking venue and wonderful experience. I can not recommend this venue highly enough.

    Our wedding was AMAZING!!!

    We had a wedding about 2 weeks ago on October 11,2019. We were the first wedding of the season and it was perfect. We could not have asked for a better day, weather, venue, views, and staff. Guests are still talking about the venue and the food!!! It was so delicious! Overall experience was a 10 out of 10.
