Press & Mentions
Wiley and Morelli, who met on the set of Orange Is the New Black, made their March 2017 nuptials all about “celebration and funfetti cake,” but their breathtaking venue can’t be overlooked either, The Colony 29 resort in Palm Springs.
Colony 29, an historic artist colony of the 1930s, is the site of this year’s Cielo Vista Charter School Benefit. The event will offer a rare look behind the gates of this now privately owned venue, which has become a popular television production location and photo shoot.
In Palm Springs, Colony 29 reinvents an art compound.
Find an excuse to host something, anything, at this beloved 1920s artist colony few have ever seen.
Where artists thrived: follow the trail to discover the views that inspired the desert’s pioneers of creativity.
“[Colony is a] paradisiacal pool party meets Indian Canyon hideaway just a few hours outside the City of Angels. Meant for a bit of a larger group, this gorgeous and glam getaway spot is soiree-perfect for your life partners — all 40 or so of them. You’ll feel like you have the run of your own city.”
“This is the epitome of a private oasis with state of the art security, raised stage area and the best restaurants in town ready to cater.”
Two years and 150 rejected venues later, Port, 30, walked down a grass aisle at Colony 29, an estate in the Palm Springs, California, mountains, November 7th.
The wedding was just as fun and festive as the proposal. On September 6, 2014, the couple and their 140 guests ventured down to Palm Springs, California, for a destination wedding at Colony 29.
Tiered along the mountain’s gentle hillside, this one-of-a-kind getaway of seven freestanding homes takes your celebration on a historical, botanical, and utterly scenic journey. With the charming architecture of old Palm Springs, its six acres include intimate enclaves for exploration as well as multiple outdoor venue options that could seat a royal wedding.
