Anthony & Rachel first met at another wedding – Dave & Li’s wedding here. It was also the first time I met Rachel. Since then, we’ve become friends through a love of japanese stationery, graphic design & minimalism.

When Anthony & Rachel first started dating, they lived in different countries. Which meant dates usually involved buying a plane ticket. After an international courtship of long-distance calls and planning holidays & adventures together, they both ended up in Melbourne, and a few months later, Ant proposed with a donut (and a ring). Their story is one of triumphing over time zones; of how love takes work and patience, and also faith, and how it is so worth it in the end.

In true Ant & Rach style, as we referred to them, each detail of their wedding was special to them. The celebration was held at Butterland, an old butter factory in Newstead, on a beautiful October day. They wanted to keep it small, intimate, and relaxed. Come early for coffee & donuts, the invitation urged us, and we were happy to oblige.

Inside, the tables looked magical, covered in spring foliage and richly-coloured bouquets arranged by the amazing Katie Marx here. Our place cards were lemons harvested from a family friend’s garden, with hand-lettering by Rachel herself. Anthony’s mum made their wedding cake – fluffy pandan chiffon in tiers – which was topped with sparklers and flowers. We took with us beautiful shared moments that spoke of a lifetime of adventures & being at home with the one you love. Plus little jars of honey, home made by a colleague of Rachel’s.

Ant & Rach, here’s to a lifetime of adventure & home.
Love, Jon & Krystin.

I’m thankful that I got to spend another year doing what I love, and more.

2014 was a year of new beginnings. I’m thankful that I got an opportunity to share my heart with others in the industry through the 2 workshops the Robertsons & I hosted in Melbourne & Penang. Never in my wildest dreams did I think people would invest their time & money to hear what I had to say, nor did I think that I would get so much out of teaching & giving back. I’m thankful for the wonderful couples I’ve met & the intimate moments that they have so willingly shared with me. I’m thankful that my job has taken me to countries & places I might not have ever gone. Most of all, I’m thankful that now I have someone by my side, encouraging & inspiring me to seize each moment with a sense of wonder.

And finally, thank you for being here. Here are some of my favourites from 2014. Enjoy.

The other day I was in the car listening to the radio and the topic of discussion was couples that have been together since high school, and how it is a dying breed in this generation. There’s something truly wonderful about two people falling for each other at the same time, and having the opportunity to grow together & the commitment to stick with each other from such a young age.

“I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where.
I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride;
so I love you because I know no other way

than this: where I does not exist, nor you,
so close that your hand on my chest is my hand,
so close that your eyes close as I fall asleep.”
- Sonnet XVII, Pablo Neruda

Anna & Richard are one of those couples – they met each other during high school and have been together ever since. And so on the 13th of September, surrounded by loved ones, they celebrated their journey so far, and committed themselves to the journey ahead. Here’s to young love, and to those who, in the words of Pablo Neruda, “love you because I know no other way“.
