Jason & Melissa Part II – The Wedding Stationery

You all know how much I loved capturing all the details on Jason & Melissa’s wedding, but what you didn’t know is that I wasn’t just their photographer.. I was also the one, who designed their wedding stationery and helped Melissa pick the theme that would go perfectly with their wedding venue.

The inspiration for their stationery were lavender flowers, which were also used for Melissa’s bouquet. Here are the photos of how everything came together. I couldn’t be happier!

The monogram I used on their invite was also on their seating chart and programme card.

the seating chart and programme card were placed on a beautiful easel..

I put the table numbers and wishing well sign in black frames to match the color palette, black and lavender.

And lastly, place cards were manila luggage tags with hand-written names of the guests tied around their personalized napkins with hemp string.


Jason & Melissa {Wedding}

When Cherie, Melissa’s sister, emailed me a few months ago asking if I was still available on Jason & Melissa’s wedding date, I was already secretly wishing they would hire me.

Why? Because I had already fallen in love with the photos of their wedding venue that I had seen online.. and when I saw it a few weeks later when we drove up to Wairarapa to meet with Melissa, it was even more beautiful than I had expected and I couldn’t wait for their wedding day to come.

On their wedding day, everything was just gorgeous. The flower arrangement was perfect for the rustic theme. Their wedding vows were heartfelt. The details were amazing, I could probably spend hours taking photos of every detail in that house and in the barn,I felt like a child in a candy store.. and Melissa, she would probably be the kind of bride everyone would wish to be, calm. Even the rain didn’t seem to worry her, why would it too? when she had the perfect footwear for the weather, her gum boots!

Jason and Melissa, thank you for letting us be part of your special day. You and your family made it so easy for us to be around you guys and Melissa thank you for the soap, my daughter wanted to eat it when she saw it on my desk the next day. She thought it was a cake!


Sometimes, we have to remind ourselves to take a moment and appreciate the beautiful things that surround us.

and these photographs show just that.. what I’m grateful for..

Enjoy your long weekend!
