A Korakia Pensione Palm Springs Wedding

If you were thinking of checking out the Korakia Pensione for your wedding, here is a spectacular example of what it would feel like. This Mediterranean-style oasis blends the silhouette of Tangier with a whisper of the Mediterranean. Lanterns and fire-pits flicker, illuminating the heated pools at night. Classic and foreign films glimmer on a nearby screen. It makes for a magical destination spot. This little gem in the desert has event space for up to 130 people.

Enjoy Cari & Jared’s charming desert wedding. Overflowing with succulent details from our very own The Vine’s Leaf and captured by another Wedding Chick favorite, Joy Marie Photography. Styled and planned by Kristen Daniel Schrock of Mindy Weiss Party Consultants, we are excited to share this Palm Springs wedding!

Are you loving the succulent escort cards above that The Vine’s Leaf made? If you are interested we have an incredibly easy tutorial on how to make these. Check out our Eco Friendly Succulent Place Cards Here! We got our DIY idea and succulents from The Vine’s Leaf!

Both The Vine’s Leaf and Joy Marie Photography are preferred members and proud sponsors of The Wedding Chicks.
