Handmade custom invitations & stationery

As we sit here with the freezing wind blowing outside I desperately needed a breath of fresh air…a reminder of all things Spring to come.  So here we have it.  A few years back I created a collection of wedding invitation suites inspired by the seasons.  This Watercolor Leaf invitation suite was my homage to Spring.  I chose a monochromatic palette of strong greens and hand painted every piece…no printed watercolor finishes here…not a chance. Jill and Ryan from With Love and Embers brought such emotion to each image and somehow were able to capture the spirit in each.  One […]

My artist brain is swimming in shades of red raspberry, fuchsia and all thing Peony after chatting with Nicole about her wedding invitation vision.  When someone love flowers as much as I do, well…I get pretty inspired.  How about those etched glass charms?  Dreaming up the perfect invitation presentation design to include these lovelies!  There is something enchanting about this mix of tonal reds, fuchsia and pink…the richness lends itself to a masterful watercolor painting…don’t you think?

When I envision a black tie wedding I still see in color.  Black tie at Momental isn’t about a stark color palette…always.  Black tie is more about a level of luxe, fine materials, unexpected textures, layering and yes often color accents in lieu of bold brights.  Black tie is less about rules and more about creating a sense of personality in a BIG yet edited way.  Black tie demands you feel every detail of the invitation, from our textural hand painted brushstrokes to the cottony weave of a letterpress stock. Black tie calls for layering of subtle pattern and sheen […]
