Handmade custom invitations & stationery

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 […]

Let’s rewind to about 1 year ago – if you came to me with all white wedding invitation dreams I likely would have smiled and said oh yes “we can do that” but inside I would have been paralyzed with fear.  You see I’m a color lover, through and through and until recently, with the help of a few amazingly creative couples, did not put much value in white color palettes.  Until recently I used color and intense hues to create drama, all but overlooking the power of white and softer palettes to make a statement.  Alicia and Justin’s wedding […]

I pulled two designs from the production table this week first for their wow color and attention grabbing textures.  Two very different approaches to color here, but both equally as impactful.

Next we have Hanieh’s pieces all decked out in muted blush, lavender and champagne. Hanieh loved stripes and watercolor so I created a new pattern featuring […]

That’s right, TWO Real Momental Weddings this week!  We’ve been dying to share this simply lovely wedding for ages.  Heidi Ryder is the photographer behind the masterful images you are about to see!  Karlee and Daniel pulled together an exquisite celebration centered around the delicate color palette of their Vintage Lacy Tree Wedding Invitations!  Read on to hear from the Bride herself: How did your stationery play a role in your wedding? Our stationery was the first concrete thing we had for the wedding. It allowed us to see the color combination we chose and gave us an inspiration for […]

We are custom, highly custom, bespoke, crazy-whatever-our-bride-wants kind of custom.  That is who we are and always have been.  I always say “we are artists first but all this beauty takes a lot of structure and organization”.  So I thought it could be fun to give you a peek into the process that happens behind the scenes on EVERY SINGLE project we ship.  That’s right, no excuses, no exceptions… After all the months of designing, debating and perfecting of a couple’s handmade wedding invitation design each Momental invitation begins with our checklist. This simple sheet of paper essentially dictates a […]
