I had the pleasure of creating invitations for Amy and Ryan who were married in February in Lake Macquarie, a beautiful part of the world just south of Newcastle.

Take a look at their beautiful wedding day with pictures courtesy of photographer, Gemma Clarke.

Amy and Ryan chose to announce their day with our Eat, Drink, Be Married wedding invitation in a gorgeous shade of Blue.

Thank you for letting us play a small part in your big day!!

We all dream our wedding will be an absolute fairy tale, but Sean Parker, inspired by a love of old growth forests/ the Lord of the Rings / Game of Thrones , has made it happen for his big day.

Sean Parker Wedding

Sean Parker (Founder of Napster and Facebook millionaire) married singer songwriter Alexandra Lenas in a gorgeous and completely lavish ceremony in Old Sur, California under 500 year old towering redwoods.

Photographed by Christian Oth and Mark Seliger,  Dedicated to their love of old-growth forests, the celebration—which included Tolkien-ized costumes for all 364 guests by Lord of the Rings costume designer Ngila Dickson—cost Parker $4.5 million for the wooded site alone.

Lots of big names were in attendance; Sting, actress Emma Watson, Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich, California power brokers Gavin Newsom and Kamala Harris, MTV founder Bob Pittman, Wikipedia’s Jimmy Wales, Zynga’s Mark Pincus, Charity Water’s Scott Harrison, Seagram’s scion Ben Bronfman, comedian Olivia Munn, and Facebook co-founders Dustin Moskovitz and Chris Hughes. (Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg, though invited, sent regrets.)




The amazing  wedding cake had six tiers and was nine foot tall!
