Hummingbird Nest Ranch Wedding | Karen & Joshua

Welcome to an elegant wedding of Karen and Joshua at the Hummingbird Nest Ranch in Simi Valley, California. The affection for each other began back in 2008 UC Berkeley as they both were college students at that time. The couple like to tell people that they met at the library. However, the truth is that Joshua and Karen met at the college party. Initially, Josh thought that Karen is a cute but weird girl. Karen saw Joshua as nerdy but sweet and kind-hearted. However, after walking Karen home that night and taking her to Costco the other they, this is when their love story began.Hummingbird Nest Ranch Wedding - Karen about to kiss Joshua in the golf cart during sunset
Eight years later, after they finished their studies, Karen and Joshua were ready to take their relationship to the next level.
The couple got engaged in France during their vocation in Europe. After having so much stress by losing their luggage in Italy and having to deal with a broken car on a busy street of Genoa, under his sleeves, Josh had a big surprise for his beloved one. When they were enjoying the lush gardens and surreal beauty of Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild in South of France, Josh led Karen to a balcony with a spectacular view of the French Riviera. While Karen was looking over the water, Josh set up his GoPro camera and asked her turn around. The time stopped, and Joshua dropped on his knee to propose to Karen and presented a gorgeous ring, which Joshua designed with his jeweler friend Neil Dahl.

Not long, after the proposal, Karen and Joshua started to plan their Hummingbird Nest Ranch wedding. Hummingbird Nest Ranch venue reminded them of Europe because it has the vibe warmth and luxury. With a picture perfect lush backgrounds and regal Spanish architecture and decor, this site was an ideal choice for Karen and Joshua's elegant and romantic wedding. Thank's to a fantastic event planner Michelle from Aquafuzion events the couple's wedding planning process was very smooth and pleasant. It was such a beautiful fairytale love story with green, cream and accent rose gold colors, surrounded by stunning views of Hummingbird Nest Ranch.
