A Momental Girl foodie gets married, so what do I do?  Throw her an un-shower, wedding shower in the middle of a warehouse….Jess wasn’t your typical bride, but who is a typical bride these days anyway?  I guess what I mean to say is that Jess wouldn’t go for anything pink, girly, lacy or sweet.  She is rough around her creative edges, insatiably spontaneous and a fellow artist.  I had to dig deep into what I knew a wedding shower to be and then attempt to turn that thinking completely upside down. It all began with this pattern, one of […]
