Handmade custom invitations & stationery
by Kristy Rice
For those of you who have been awaiting the announcement of the source of our recent national press, it came as quite a surprise; even to us. I received a phone call from one of my current brides from California telling me how excited she was to see one my invites within the pages of The Knot 2009 Spring/Summer Edition. I have known for sometime now to anticipate the inclusion in The Knot New Jersey, so I was a bit perplexed how a bride in California would have her hands on a New Jersey edition. For a moment I thought “could I possibly be in the national issue of The Knot?”. With back to back appointments all day, I sent the Hubby out buy several copies, only to return with it opened to page 50 revealing a large, quarter page, image of the Momental Designs Signature Vintage Lacy Tree Design in all its glory.
How sweet it was to taste success as the past six years of hard work have paid off for millions of people to see, all on page 50. If that was not good enough, the Hubby returned with a beautiful arrangement of flowers that resulted in me shedding a few tears in front of a prospective client. It has truly been a magnificent journey over the past six years, as I have had the pleasure of working with so many brides who chose me and my team to be the artists creating the stationery to announce the most special day of their lives.
How it Happened
Like many clients, Jenna fell in love with the Vintage Lacy Tree Collection and selected a color palette of crisp white, cool turquoise, and soft sage to compliment her Kentucky Derby inspired event. Choosing to customize her stationery, spring flowers in fuchsia and aqua with fluttering dragonfly made the invitation exclusively Jenna’s design.
After the honeymoon, as so many brides do, Jenna submitted her wedding information and photographs to The Knot, hoping to be featured in the magazine. It truly means so much to this artist turned stationery designer. Be sure to check out Jenna’s amazing wedding – everything from her lovely cake to the hand-painted welcome sign – so fun!
