Elise + Craig


After nine years of dating, Elise and Craig tied the knot with an intimate and rustic ceremony at Cassegrain Winery. Elise shares how the day came together, with the help of the wonderful wedding planning experts, Ruby & James.

‘Ruby & James were my go-to girls once the “wedding planning” begun. They designed and created our beautiful invitations, which were a unique style and an incredible finish for our unforgettable wedding day. Being located 13 hours away in Melbourne, I knew we had a challenge ahead, though Ruby and James created mood boards, Pinterest folders, and collaborated over countless emails, texts and phone calls, and they of course made the big trip up North almost a week before the wedding to pull everything together. They supplied the drinks station for the ceremony, custom signage, tags, seating chart, flowers and foliage for the table and ceremony space and little details like the tassels on the giant balloons and styling of the cake. The centrepieces were mostly recycled bottles and tins that myself, my Mum and Ruby & James spray painted to match in with our style for the day – golds, coppers and white. Of course they coordinated the entire set up and organisation on the day and the pack-down the following day. Not a detail was forgotten – there is no way I could of pulled off such a day without the support, guidance, creativity and organisation of event planning legends Ruby & James. I am forever grateful for their help – I know I have a lifelong memory that wouldn’t have been the same without them.’
