Historic Cree Estate: An Outdoor Wedding Venue

historic cree estate

If you’re planning an outdoor wedding in Palm Springs, the Historic Cree Estate is an ideal venue. The hacienda-style home sits on two and half beautifully landscaped acres. It has a relaxed, private atmosphere. Even though it can accommodate up to 200 guests, it’s a great venue for a more intimate wedding as well.

Historic Cree Estate

Lush plants fill the grounds of Historic Cree Estate. A sprawling orange tree grows beside a stone fountain. Palm trees make it feel like an oasis, especially when you’re sitting beside the pristine blue pool. 

Ceremonies take place on the lawn. You could use florals and decor to cultivate a more personalized aesthetic, but this venue doesn’t require much beautification. The weathered wood gates and Spanish tile roof set the mood for a relaxed wedding with California charm.

Historic Cree Estate hosts weddings outdoors, but a two-night stay on site is included with the rental package. This is ideal if you want to get ready on site and enjoy the beautiful pool the next morning. I love venues like this because they make it easy to spend more time with your loved ones instead of rushing from place to place.

For wedding guests, this venue is an easy 15-minute drive from Downtown Palm Springs. They can stay in one of the city’s colorful hotels and enjoy everything the city has to offer on your wedding weekend. 

Planning for Your Outdoor Wedding 

Historic Cree Estate is ideal for an outdoor wedding in the Palm Springs area. Spring and fall are ideal times of year to get married here. By April, daytime temperatures reach the high 80s. The weather cools back down in October and November. Keep that in mind when you’re planning your Palm Springs wedding so you can enjoy the sunshine and beautiful views.
