a diy travel theme wedding | jenny + yoongu

diy wedding

From the moment I met Jenny, I knew we would click.  She is the DIY queen!  She basically DIY’ed her entire wedding… from Korea!  She did ALL the flowers herself.  I love the little “mom”, “dad”, “brother”, and “husband” charms she put on the boutonnieres.

That amazing bouquet was also DIY’ed by her!  And all the beading on her dress and that adorable bow.

Jenny & Yoongu had a traditional Korean ceremony in Korea and brought back photos to share with her guest here.

Since they both have traveled A LOT, their entire wedding was travel themed!  She even DIY’ed the cute cake topper!  Every guest had the opportunity to win the centerpiece by guessing how many total miles they have flown together.  Take a guess… how many miles do you think they’ve traveled?  …I’ll reveal it at the end of this post.

She used vintage suitcases as decor, and had one cut out as the card box.  The escort cards looked like plane tickets!  And check out the detailed work she did on their cake topper!

Instead of a traditional guest sign in book, they had vintage looking postcards for guest to sign.

I LOVE the cake topper!!  Look at the cute little details!

I Loved watching how sweet the are together…

Jenny bought a plain white dress and reconstructed it herself!  She added on the lace detailing, the beading, the bow, and the sleeves herself!

Her invitations looked like passports!  She even sewed them together like real passports.  She gave out lucky bamboos as favors.  And the favor tags were decorated with compasses and little buckles.

Gorgeous centerpieces, right?  Yes, she made them herself too!

And I just love how happy they are here.  So how many miles did they travel together?  …75,000 miles!  …Confession… I actually have no concept of what 75,000 miles is…  can anyone make that connection for me please?

oh my god. she is seriously one talented bride. her invites and favors are way too cute. awesome images as always. i love the detail shots!

and i think 75k miles is like going back and forth from la to korea 6 times. that’s a lot of traveling.
