Hummingbird Nest Ranch Wedding

Speechless. The couple, the venue, the vendors – it was all perfect. We looked at quite a few locations for Jana and Michaels big day, and they just could not pass up the sprawling property tucked up against the back hills of Santa Susana. The couple wanted their wedding to be a weekend celebration of love, family, friends and FUN! Mission Accomplished. How fun are those gift bags?! The bride made them herself and included things like pistachios, home made cookies and a “bloody mary in a bag”.

The venue itself is stunning, and has multiple locations for different events. Jana and Michael were able to host daily events throughout the weekend, each one at a different site, take a peek at their rehearsal dinner the night before.

Hummingbird Nest Ranch Rehearsal Dinner

Jana and Michaels wedding weekend was amazing. They wanted to host a welcome dinner that would be so different from their wedding the next day. Since their wedding was going to be soft and romantic, they wanted the rehearsal dinner to be vibrant and striking. We went with a long “floral runner” down the center of the tables accented with metal lanterns and candles for a warm glow. The rehearsal dinner is such a perfect opportunity to just relax and enjoy your closest family and friends before the big day, so something special with it. This gorgeous dinner was featured over on Grey Likes Weddings, so head over there to see even more eye candy!
