Elvis Honeymoon Hideaway in Palm Springs

Sure you can go to Vegas and be married by some Elvis impersonator. And, that's nice. But, why not go for something a little more authentic. Get married where Elvis and Priscilla Presley had their honeymoon! Get married at the Elvis Honeymoon Hideaway in Palm Springs!

The Hideaway is a private estate situated at the base of the beautiful San Jacinto mountains, once leased by Elvis Presley. And, it comes with a story. It seems Elvis and Priscilla were meant to be married around the pool at the estate, but their plans were thwarted by a gossip columnist, which brought hordes of media surrounding the estate. So, they slipped away and were married in Las Vegas, but came back to the estate for their honeymoon.

Now the estate is open for guided tours, as well as hosting events, such as your wedding and/or honeymoon!

Even if Elvis and Priscilla hadn't had their honeymoon at the estate, it would still be an absolutely fabulous place for a wedding. There's a diamond-shaped pool, with an area of stonework perfect for a wedding gazebo. The estate can accommodate about 180 guests around the pool.

You will also have use of the home itself if you desire an indoor wedding. And, for those of you wishing to stay for your honeymoon, you will be blessed with an awesome view of the Santa Rosa Mountains from the circular master bedroom suite, which includes a Jacuzzi.

Other amenities include a tennis court. Limousine services, a butler, cook and/or maid are available upon request.

Now, if you really want to have "The King's" honeymoon, take note. When they arrived back to the estate from getting married in Vegas, Elvis carried Priscilla over the threshold and up the stairs of the Honeymoon Hideaway singing "The Hawaiian Wedding Song". Better tell the prospective groom to start practicing.

They also provide tours of the estate Monday through Friday at 1PM for $25 per person. There are also annual events held throughout the year, including the upcoming Honeymoon Weekend May 2 through May 4th, with tours and concerts.

For more info about the Honeymoon Weekend, or having your wedding at the Elvis Honeymoon Hideaway, you can go to their website at ElvisHoneymoon.com or call 760-322-1192.
