The ideal wedding venue

If you are searching for a Palm Springs wedding venue that captures the eclectic, glamorous, historic, old Hollywood vibes of the town, then the Riviera is your place! We simply cannot recommend the Riviera highly enough. Here are a few reasons why:

1) Magical venue spaces: The public spaces on the Riviera's large campus were a big draw for us, and they still exceeded our expectations. We had all aspects of our wedding on site (ceremony, cocktail hour, reception) -- all of which were gorgeous and private. Our wedding was on New Year's Eve, and so we had our evening ceremony in a smaller ballroom with chandeliers overhead. However, if the weather's warmer, the outdoor Wexler Garden is a gorgeous ceremony site -- very similar to the much pricier Parker site down the road. We had our cocktail hour under the chandeliers of the ballroom entryway, but also considered holding it in one of the Riviera's two, very cool restaurants with outdoor patios near the pool with rattan lamps overhead.

2) Ideal hotel for bringing people together: The majority of our wedding guests stayed at the Riviera, and it couldn't have been better. There are of course a million places to stay in the surrounding area, but there was something especially fun about having all our family and friends descend upon one place for the weekend. We scoured Palm Springs for hotel/rental options for our guests, and the Riviera was also the best value in the valley. Fun and affordable - win-win!

3) The incredible staff: The most professional, organized, thoughtful, kind group imaginable. Darin Sturgill is the Riviera's wedding manager, and blew us away with his dedication, vision, and flexibility. Long story short, you want Darin involved in your wedding! The entire management staff was equally impressive — responsive, gracious, and accommodating throughout the entire process.

4) The food was legitimately AWESOME: Seriously. And not just by wedding food standards. Our guests are still talking about how good the food was. From the passed apps all the way to late night sliders, the chef and the kitchen knocked it out of the park.

Couldn't have asked for a better venue!

The Riviera was amazing. We fell in love with the hotel's vibe right away, and once we saw where the wedding would be, it was a done deal. Darin Sturgill, the Senior Catering Sales Manager, was our main contact throughout the process, and he was so great to work with. He was not only very responsive, but also kind, thoughtful, and really listened to what we were envisioning for our day. Our guests absolutely loved the hotel, the food at the reception was great, and we can't wait to go back for vacation!

Getting married in June in Palm Springs seems like a hot, crazy idea but we did it! The Rivera was the perfect place that we wanted and when we met Darin and saw the beautiful venue we knew! Not only is Darin highly responsive, he walked the venue with us giving us ideas and really helped us realize and see our vision. Darin is one amazing person as is everyone at this hotel. We received nothing but excellent service from the manager that we met one random weekend with our dog at the bar, to the exceptional chef and his food, to Tasha that helped manage our guest stays, to the wonderful buses, servers ans support folks during our reception, to Darin that helped the day go smoothly! Our suite was perfection and did I mention they are dog friendly?! We are so grateful they are so our dog could be part of our day! Truly magical venue with some of the nicest people you’ll ever met. I’m so happy we had our special day at this special historical hotel.
