I have a sort of venue-crush (read: obsession) with Holman Ranch. It has set the scene for romance time after time. Today’s charmer from Jasmine Lee Photography done up DIY style is earthy, cozy and oh-so-lovely and it blends right in with the laid-back vibe, those gorgeously distressed stone walls and ah-mazing views.

Rustic Venue

From the beautiful Bride… Our wedding was almost entirely handmade, we had our families help out with creating many of the creative touches for the wedding. We wanted our wedding to reflect our personalities and create a truly memorable day for our guests. We began with a beautiful outdoor location for the ceremony at the Holman Ranch in Carmel Valley, CA and had our reception in the Ocean Avenue Room at the IL Fornaio Restaurant. Our venues set the mood for the wedding and we simply filled it with beautiful handmade accents.

My wedding dress was my own design and was handmade by a family friend. I also carved out the anchor stamp for the favor bags that were made by my mom with help from other family members. My favorite project for the wedding was creating the flower bouquets and the centerpieces, my dad made the flower boxes and then the rest of the family helped out making the flower arrangements. Aside from that, my brother made the cake signs and the chair signs, I painted the seating sign, and my parents helped collect decorative items to display at our reception.
