Indian Wedding Venue: Hummingbird Nest Ranch

{About Indian Weddings at Hummingbird Nest Ranch}

Beautiful, unique, all outdoor venue in Simi Valley, California. You can arrange a room block at a hotel near the venue and it’s common for couples to host their pre-wedding events there: haldi, saakat, mehndi etc.

One of the most attractive features at this venue is you can BYO beer, hard alcohol and French champagne without incurring a corkage fee. All wine has a $15/bottle corkage fee. Bringing your own alcohol presents savings of $3000-$5000; varies based on guest count.

Simi Valley is inland with the average high in August of 97° and the average low of 57°. During summer, think about tenting/covering the space for daytime events and including heaters in the evening as all of the events will be outdoors.
