Like many others in 2020, Jennifer and James’ wedding has also been postponed for 2 years due to the pandemic. In the meantime they got married with a civil ceremony and a beautiful baby girl was born.
And so, this event was not just a wedding party, but an opportunity to celebrate their love together with friends and families, remember and honor their origins (Bride and Groom‘s families have Korean heritage and James grew up in Hawaii – this explains the “lei” garlands) and also to thank everyone for being close to them in these two years.
The wedding location was in Simi Valley, about an hour’s drive north of the city of Los Angeles. It’s surrounded by burnt sienna rocky hills and cactus plants with strong reminiscent of the sets of many Hollywood old wild west movies. The wedding venue is Hummingbird Nest Ranch, an old Spanish-style racehorse ranch. Truly an out of this world and peaceful place.
The wedding design by the wedding planner Ashley Sun of CCL WEDDINGS is minimal and elegant. For the ceremony place and the dinner tables the main decoration were candles (I would say hundreds of candles!) in glass jars that create a warm, magical and intimate environment. On the Bride and Groom’s table a cascade of magnificent red roses.
For the wedding party there was no lack of food and drink: open bars, ice cream and boba (bubble tea) kiosk, even the IN & OUT truck that provided its famous delicious burgers. What could I say more…Filming a wedding in South California is always a great pleasure. The mild weather, friendly vendors and colleagues, customers and guests always respectful, cheerful and willing to party. What’s better for a destination wedding videographer? 🙂 Can’t wait to see you again California!
