From Moonmilk Event Studio... Upon meeting with Dana and Edaan, we knew that we wanted to design a wedding that was reflective of their fun and youthful energy. We decided on a summer wedding with the beautiful Hummingbird Nest Ranch as the backdrop for the nuptials. Taking cues from the surrounding landscape, we opted to include an abundance of bougainvillea throughout the wedding to compliment the various event spaces and add to the color palette. After entering the ranch, guests sipped on jalepeño margaritas and pomegranate mojitos as they surrounded the outdoor pool which was decorated with rose petals in bright hues and candles placed in floating bamboo trays.

Dana and Edaan are both self-confessed foodies so we curated a menu that included fun elements like a braised taco station and a sashimi station to keep guests intrigued during the cocktail hour. For the reception, we came up with the idea of incorporating wood arbors above the dining tables to create a more intimate space for guests to enjoy dinner al fresco. Each wood arbor was adorned with climbing roses, flowering jasmine, and bougainvillea to give guests the impression that the arbors were permanent structures on the lawn. 

Guests danced the night away on a seamless dark burgundy dance floor as the custom D and E marquee sign glowed in the background. The festivities continued until the wee hours of the night and concluded with a late night visit by an In-N-Out Truck to make sure guests had the perfect ending to this memorable event under the stars.
