Handmade custom invitations & stationery
by Kristy Rice

When I began designing for Elizabeth, an interior designer in LA, I knew it would be something special.  Never could we imagine that her design would grace the main page of Inside Weddings’ Winter invitation feature.  We began with an inspiration board after Elizabeth mentioned the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills owned restaurant, Villa Blanca as her muse. Nuage Linens, Villa Blanca, Crete, Hand Painted Invitation, Papers, Bed and Pillow  So dive in for a peek into the production of these stunners. A custom pattern was in store and the inspiration was a simple mosaic element reminiscent of honeycomb.  The […]

Momental adores Inside Weddings magazine so you can imagine the thrill of having them hand pick one of our signature designs for feature.  The editors chose Amy’s sunflower festooned Vintage Lacy Tree Wedding Invitation for their fall issue, on newsstands last week!  The Vintage Lacy Tree has been a favorite since our humble beginnings back in 2003 which is why this collection is so near and dear to our hearts.  Each element of the design is meticulously personalized for each couple from tree species and bloom color to the family pet and bushels of regional flowers sketched. In 2006, a […]

Later this week I will share the live […]

Have you seen the new issue of Inside Weddings?  I am thrilled to say our Painted Orchid invitation set was featured in the Summer issue.  WOW what an honor!

Oh how I love this invitation suite.  Several months ago I purchased some laces, just to play and here we are.  My “playing” often leads to a stationery project that I may never have dreamed could work but for Christina, it certainly did.  The two varieties of lace acted as a closure along with the silvery satin ribbon tie.  I love the delicate design of the lace contrasted by it sumptious, cottony texture – lovely! Her lacy artwork choice was hand painted with a vibrant coral ink and then embellished with tiny rhinestones throughout. Thank you Christina for trusting us […]
