DIY California Ranch wedding: Lianne + Jeong

categories Ceremony & Reception, Details + Decor, DIY Wedding, Neat Venues, Pretty Paper, Real Weddings

Another adorable wedding today! Major DIY explosion courtesy of Lianne, the lovely bride, and sent to us by the excellent photographer team Janet & Lisa of JL Photografia.

There’s not a ton of explaining to do here. Just know that Lianne had her hand in every single detail of her wedding. She worked really closely with Marky from Vingette to create the vision she had for a vintage ranch wedding.

She even made all the wooden signs, baked all the cookies and cupcakes, made the jams, collected the wood and vintage fabrics herself… pretty much just went to town in the DIY department.

And here’s a super sweet part of the story: Lianne’s dress is vintage and Jeong is the one who actually won it for her on ebay. Awwww. See, it’s okay if groomy sees the dress before the big day! Whatever works for you is perfect.



These invites = delicious. Sooooo cute. Lianne worked with her friend Erin of Indigo Bunting to design and print them. Awesome work girls!

  1. oh dear. I love this. It is perfect.

  2. I have long been a follower of JL Photografia’s work – so happy to see them being featured here.

  3. This is beautiful! One of my blog readers brought this to my attention as I designed the fabric on the jars. Would you mind if I posted the pictures on my site?

  4. Having read every single 100 Layer Cake post, I think it’s safe to say that this is my favourite real wedding yet. The invitations are to die for. I can’t stop scrolling through all these pictures. :3

  5. I can’t get enough of the cute cupcake and erlenmeyer flask! Such cute illustrations.

  6. love everything about this wedding, from the bride’s dress to the guest book to the menu and table settings, and i cant forget the invites and favors…so great! and the colors are fabulous!

  7. this wedding is sooo perfect. especially like the concept of decorating the altar with individual/identical(-ish) bouquets. so simple but a really powerful statement. same can be said for fabric-covered jam jars. love. thoughtful details make ALL the difference here!!!

  8. This is really quaint and just simply superb. I adore sunflowers! Such an underused wedding flower and so stunning.

  9. charming wedding

  10. Love seeing the trend to full color invitations for weddings, so many more design possibilities.. even for the diy bride, just would need to stock up on ink!

  11. i am DYING! those are the most adorable illustrations ever!

  13. can’t get enough of it!

  15. what lovely details {per usual}. thanks for sharing! :)

  16. wonderful couple, stunning wedding! everything is matching and it really looks like they did what they really want to do!

  17. These homemade invitations were really creative. That seems to be a big trend these days. I operate http://www/impressinprint.com, and we constantly get requests for custom invitations for weddings. With digital printing, it is a very viable option nowadays to get highly personalized wedding invitations. Couples like these who want a very personal touch with their invitations can easily reach out to invitation vendors and get a unique momento for their wedding guests.

  18. I adore those invites!

  19. I’m having my wedding here next year in October, and it is SO comforting to see such beautiful photos here on 100LC. Hats off to the bride & groom… I’ll be so lucky if our wedding comes even close in originality and charm!

  20. i love this wedding. so many great details from the ceremony arch to the escorts cards, venue and the favors it all goes together so well.

  21. I love the sunflowers as part of the decorations! they’re such festive flowers!

  22. I simply love the wooden menu beside the crate of green apples, very unique. I simply adore the lil’ cupcakes, the big sunflowers, the jams, the long wooden table and more…..all of it perfected the look of a country ranch wedding. What I love the most is the wooden arch with the yellow flowers on it and the bride and groom saying their I do’s…all so natural and fresh. Great ideas, you guys!

  23. What an amazingly styled wedding. So simple yet so effective! I think it’s the quirkiness of some of the smaller details that I love the most. The paper birds on pegs, the apples, the table numbers and definitely the homemade jams and cookies = uniqueness. Fantastic all round!


  24. I love all these pictures so much. The wedding was so simple and quaint.. I can’t wait to get married! I think I may use some of your ideas.. They are so beautiful.
