Many will remember how this book became just a little bit legendary.  Think Carrie and Big, New York City and…there you go… Love Letters of Great Men was the starting point for this heartfelt collection of Book Invitations for an Italy Wedding. {Books…and I mean real, paper and page books have a weight and sincerity about them. They possess a power within them that you can literally hold on to.} So designing wedding invitations centered around a book is like being part of building a family heirloom.

Just as our couples have a love story, so does Momental.  Momental Designs grew from a love affair with painting and…well, love itself. (Our passion for bringing fine art to the invitation page endures.) Georgia O’Keeffe, one of my favorite painters of all time often spoke about how so few of us really see the world around us. Really see. {We pass through our days with technology blinders on, often truly missing the life that hovers in and around the nooks and crannies of emotional hours and task filled days.  We miss the joy that the small moments our hours have to offer.} […]

We contributed a full suite of stationery to include a cigar box invitation, hand […]

I was asked to create a series of artwork by our friends at Snippet and Ink.  Inspired by poignant love quotes I developed five new watercolor patterns to express the words of each poet. {Such an honor to be part of Words to Love By for Snippet and Ink!} Notice I also tried my hand at some hand lettering – really just a fancier version of my handwriting! We’re often asked by couples to help them discover lovely words, quotes, scripture and the like, that express the power of a love story.  It can be difficult to find the right […]
