Rustic Vintage Hummingbird Nest Ranch Wedding Bride & Groom in Santa Susana Simi Valley

Here’s a Hummingbird Nest Ranch Wedding you’re probably going to fall in love with! If there’s a wedding venue that I absolutely adore…its definitely Hummingbird Nest Ranch.  Such a pleasure to be able to help Candice Benjamin shoot this wedding with some film. Thanks so much for having me Candice! This Hummingbird Nest Ranch wedding venue is nestled in the hills of Santa Susana, Simi Valley area. There are actually several locations to get married, but this one is a fave of mine… The Villa and the Courtyard to be exact and it actually has the feel of a Private Estate wedding. They also have other spots you’ll love too. Seriously, if you’re looking for a great place to get married, this one is a keeper on your list! And if you book this place, I’d love to shoot your wedding! Getting ready for this Hummingbird Nest Wedding was in the villa as well, and its my favorite spot for photos. The corridors have such texture and colors that make window light brighten everything. The colors, Spanish architecture and beautiful views at sunset… blew me away. And in case you haven’t noticed, I love bougainvillea! Elaina wore a stunningly detailed dress from BHLDN, that showcased a sexy and glamorous backless style.

These are all the rest of the fun and lovely images from Ben & Courtney’s wedding day at Rancho Del Cielo in Malibu! You can see the film images from the previous post here.

Marica of Crystal Clear Weddings & Occasions rocked the house and planned a wonderful party. The florals, food, and decor was from some of my favorite wedding professionals! It’s always a pleasure working with them. Check out these florals… Peony & Plum always dazzling as usual. And it’s especially sweet to witness every couple and their special connection with each other. Ben & Courtney have such a cute relationship and are really some of the sweetest people. This wedding was a relaxing and fun event. Instead of cocktail hour being after the ceremony, it happened as people arrived by shuttle to the venue. And how can I forget Courtney’s amazing flowing summery Alexander McQueen wedding dress. I just love her style and how she chose such a fun and stylish golden necklace to accent it. This location is definitely one of my favorites to shoot at. Every time I photograph a ceremony at Rancho Del Cielo, it’s such a breathtaking view. Heirloom LA catered the wedding, and when they are in charge of the food, no stomach goes hungry. One cannot help but salivate at the wonderful yummies they serve. Mmmm And you know what just made me do a happy dance? The Cool Haus Ice Cream Truck…. it’s the desert of my dreams. Every time I come across one at a wedding I die… of sweet tooth envy. Ahhh..

Take a look at some of my favorite highlights from the day. Delightfully colorful and sweet (literally!)

Pretty much this is yet another gorgeous wedding filled with fun people, sunsets, and smiling faces! This is Ben & Courtney’s Rancho Del Cielo Malibu wedding in a nutshell. All of these images were captured with my trusty film camera with Fuji 400H and processed by RPL. I love the colors and love the feel of them. Stay tuned for the next post that shares even more images from the day. Ben & Courtney are so adorably fun. It was a good day! Very unique ideas and elements to the day that made the entire experience very refreshing. Very much the way I would like to approach my own wedding day. Congrats you two!
