As a unique event venue that's new to the Palm Springs market, we collaborated with a renowned wedding planner from Northern California's bay area to create a beautiful wedding style shoot to help our many couples see the potential of this beautiful space.

Chanda Daniels of A Monique Affair came down for several days to create magic and inspiration.

Working under Chanda's guidance we assembled a team of wedding and event professionals to show what we can do. The day started with set-up under the competent leadership of Trish Gil and her team from AFR Furniture Rentals.

The idea was to assemble basic seating in our south parking area, creating a perfect space for outside ceremonies with our majestic San Jacinto Mountain range as the backdrop.

AFR Rentals supplied all the chairs, tables, and acrylic pedestals needed to showcase how TheBank can be transformed.

For the ceremony, we had a merry band of volunteers to come out and have fun with us. Chanda specializes in LGBTQ weddings and events; since Palm Springs in noted for it's strong inclusion for the LGBTQ community we asked two beautiful couples to be our models.

It was ethereal floating on the acrylic pedestal, add some elegant florals and you have a wow moment. We are fortunate to have amazing local designers like My Little Flower Shop who designed the florals for this fun shoot.

The lobby in this iconic modernism building still retains its original terrazzo floors and metal staircase leading to the mezzanine level for the reception. This is a great place for guests to gather prior to the big reveal!

And about that grand reveal, although our main room can accommodate up to 400 guests, when designed properly with event specialists it can showcase an intimate seating dinner for 60 just as easily. The beautiful custom linens showcased in the lobby and table linens are complements of BBJ Linens.
