Foil-Letterpress-Hand-Painted-Wedding-Invitation

Friends, I adore throwing parties.  Little feels quite as exhilarating as witnessing the fruits of your artistic labors being enjoyed across many experiences and times.  From a WOW invitation being delivered and receiving texts about “how amazing they are” to sitting down to a five course meal carefully orchestrated for exactly the guest list you’ve curated – well it feels just wonderful. Treating people well and treating them to joyful, enriching experience is the stuff of amazing event design… {I don’t profess to be an event designer, although my alter ego may disagree…} I simply find great joy in hosting my […]

White Anemones on silver cardstock, where each brushstroke comes alive against the soft whisper of shimmering colored paper – divine indeed.  For this editorial seen last week on Wedding Unveiled Magazine’s blog, we created White Anemone Hand Painted Wedding Invitations in addition to custom wedding menus, custom place cards and even hand painted envelope liners. {The simplicity of this wedding look is enchanting but not so simple that the eye is left with nothing to discover after a few moments.} Each time I glance at the exquisitely set celebration table I see something new…small, delightful surprises abound here.  The invitation […]

A few weeks back I shared these Watercolor and Gold Foil Botanical Wedding Invitations suite.  Today I’m excited to give you a closer look!

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.} […]
