Initially inspired by the Segoe Lily, the stationery took on a decidedly more muted palette, so pops of aqua and red could be the standouts when they occurred.
The studio shot of the suit shows of the various textured stocks and painting techniques used. Sheer, shimmery gold, creamy whites and aqua and peach watercolor tones tell the stationery story here…
The light that day changed faster than we could imagine. From washed out sunlight at every turn, to intense golden rays turning everything into sparkle, we soaked up every ever-changing opportunity to capture this land’s fickle nature.
Just before the sun went behind the cliffs, the entire valley was bathed in golden light…
Our fresh take on the escort card table: Paintbrushes adorned with seating flags by Paloma’s Nest were meant to paint a bit of the image before guests took their seat. At the end, our couple was left with a redrock masterpiece painted collectively by their guests.
More studio shots…
Ellipses were drawn overlapped, again and again as an abstract interpretation of the sunset…Painted with washy tones of amber, red and aqua the look took on a subtly modern finish.

I’ve got my blogging groove back. Feeling rejuvenated and re-inspired after one of the most hectic Decembers I can recall! I’ve been dying to share this painterly project designed exclusively for the readers of Southern Weddings Magazine. I worked with Nicole and the SW Team to create a custom suite of painted paperie fit to inspire any southern detail loving couple… here an understated color palette mixed with gilded embellishments and detailed paintings reveals a sweet and soft collection of paper moments.
Of course I was thrilled to see a few of our pieces on the pages of this “Southern Paper” feature! So let’s dive in to a close-up look…
This invitation layout is a classic for us, using a mix of flowery script and bold block fonts… The lofty knot is made of rich silk dupioni with an added twist…more on that later!
Found these tiny gilded frames in one of my favorite spots in NYC – all vintage, all beautiful in their imperfection! Then I created a detailed painting of ripe peaches on leafy branches. First I sketch the outline of the frame and then a quick impression of the peach scene – from there it is all about a brush and paint. Each invitation literally is a framed work of art.
Silk Dupioni takes to paint like….I’m trying to think of some catchy southern euphemism here – well let’s just say silk loves paint and we brush stripes onto ours for an unmistakeably Momental look!!
Another gilded frame for the program, but painted inside were stripes instead! Love the clean stripes against the more Baroque details of the frame!
Check in tomorrow for a look at another project of ours that made the pages of the newest Southern Weddings Magazine! XO
