Handmade Plantable Wedding Invitations!

Filed under: Green,Make A Difference,Weddings — chantal @ 11:20 pm

Have I mentioned before that I LOVE my clients?!? I think that what helps to make great Wedding photography is to have a great relationship with your clients, and I am so happy to say that I LOVE them! It’s such a huge honor to part of their day, to be trusted with their memories. I take my job very seriously, and by investing in the relationship, it makes documenting their Wedding that much more important to me personally. Good or bad, the personal investment I have in my clients is what I love about my job, and they seem to like it too!

So how excited was I to receive an invitation in the mail to one of the Weddings I am photographing next month?!? I was ecstatic! Natalie & Michael are getting married soon and they sent me an invitation!! I have been looking forward to this wedding since our fantabulous engagement session last year, so to receive an invitation makes me feel like so much more than just a vendor, it makes me feel like a friend and I am so honored to spend the day with them!

But not only was the fact that sent me an invitation so great, the actual invitation is the most amazing thing! They purchased their invitations from Botanical Paperworks, a company that makes stationary that is “plantable paper”. The papers are made with post-consumer waste and has real seeds in the paper, so that once you’re finished, you can PLANT THE PAPER and grow real flowers! Isn’t that cool?!?

I know there are plenty of people who are looking for GREEN alternatives when planning their Weddings, so I thought this was a fantastic idea and I wanted to pass it along!

Also: Notice the stamp on the envelope? Another great idea for engagement photos. Make your own stamps at!

Thanks Natalie 🙂



  1. Beautiful shots! I love that they chose plantable paper as well, they are such an eco-friendly couple!

  4. Thank you for archiving our invites! We put a lot of love into them! Jan hand-made the shower and bachel. party invites…she’s so crafty! Anyway, If I knew you were putting our invites on your blog I would have been more careful with my handwriting….I tried so hard to make them look purposfully hnadwritten but neat…some got sloppy! Thanks again!!
