"Tell the chef, the beer is on me."

“Bonza is an Australian expression that describes the feeling that spread through the body before you exclaim “hurray!”. Something is bonza if it is superb and amazing, but at the same time laid back and relaxed. People and places can be bonza. This wine is. Therefore, it was namned The Great Bonza. The wine is produced in Australia by renowned Quarisa Wines, and it is powerful and nuanced, with hints of black currant, black cherry, licorice and coffee.
For the design the client wanted something playful and colorful. We got catchwords like: cheerful and retro. The latter, as producer John got a retro feel of the name. The client also wanted to relate to the Australian origin.
So we thought: since the wine is powerful in flavour, and The Great Bonza is a quirky name for a wine – why not use a quirky Australian circus? The design is playful with a nod to the classic image of the boxing kangaroo. We chose happy and bright colors that are perhaps a little unexpected in the context. We wanted the box to stand out on the shelf, but also add to the atmosphere at the dinner table – a truly colorful exterior for a truly colorful wine.”

Cecily + Abram’s DIY wedding has us making all sorts of plans for spring (yes, already!)—getting crafty with friends, hosting intimate gatherings, picking out the brightest bouquets. They, along with a host of talented friends and fam, pulled off their dream day with a 10k budget that included so many cute creative touches. Thanks to Lauren Fair Photography for sharing the images!
Their dear friend Alexis of Woolly Bully dreamt up the invitation suite.
Cecily explains, We were very intentional about making every aspect of our wedding reflect our values. We don’t have tons of money, but we’ve invested our whole lives in meaningful relationships with loved ones that mean the world to us. A potluck was the only way to go, both because of our budget and because sharing food with friends and family is so important to us. From there, our friends and family pitched in to help make our vision a reality in so many ways, including:
• potato stamping 100 ft of kraft paper runner (could not look at potatoes for some time after the wedding…)
• making the picnic blankets from fabrics we chose
• helping set up on the wedding day & coordinating the potluck
• designing invites
• building the chuppah
• arranging the flowers in hundreds of glass bottles
• sharing personal blessings as our interpretation of the Jewish tradition of Sheva
• Brachot (with a communal sing-along of “If I Had A Hammer” for the final blessing) & more!
For the potluck, they only asked local friends to contribute, and just specified a category (like appetizer or salad). Meanwhile, Cecily spent months sourcing vintage dishes, while her friends coordinated and made the paper tablecloth.
Find more in our gallery:
Cecily had proposed to Abram with a surprise performance of their song (“I Second that Emotion” by Smokey Robinson), including a back up band with lots of out of town loved ones. Abram returned the favor at the wedding, surprising Cecily with a 7-piece band performance of an original song that he had started to write about her years earlier but never finished.
A feel good story fit for a Friday, if you ask us! Congrats guys!

"Basically the price of a night on the town!"
"I'd love to help kickstart continued development! And 0 EUR/month really does make fiscal sense too... maybe I'll even get a shirt?" (there will be limited edition shirts for two and other goodies for each supporter as soon as we sold the 200)
