Handmade custom invitations & stationery
by Kristy Rice

Michelle got in touch months ago after seeing this feature on Green Wedding Shoes.   Our Vintage Lacy Tree Collection caught her eye and was the perfect way to introduce guests to the Saddlerock Ranch in Malibu, CA, where all the wedding festivities  will be held.  As Michelle’s design evolved, so did her enchanting color palette.  We began with navy and sage green which built gradually into, navy, copper, shimmery whites, greens and a hint of lavender. When it came time to vision the day-of accessory items Michelle gave me full reign.  Her palette again evolved to include rich jewel tones […]

Melanie contacted me early last year and I knew instantly we would connect.  Her ideas for stationery were inspired by a striking china pattern (more on that tomorrow).  The first sample created was the one… and from there we just had fun detailing the design.  Laura from Wish Events sent over images from Melanie’s day and obviously her amazing style found its way into every nook and cranny.   The shots to come are clean, crisp with elegant compositions throughout all thanks to Regeti’s Photography. Love that bag. The Fairmont in Washington D. C. A peek at the stationery This […]

Aleah from Good Life Events called me one day earlier this year with a lofty idea (aren’t those the best kind?).  A marathon day of six wedding shoots was planned and she wanted me to create all the custom stationery to coordinate.  I was immediately intrigued and knew my creative muscle would be challenged since I only had 2 weeks to make it happen! The first of the six tabletop shoots was featured recently on the sweet blog, Merci New York.  Chic and thoughtful design details for weddings are this blog’s passion so Aleah and Nick‘s English Style tablescape fit […]

For this week’s Inspired Ink, I called on the amazingly talented Janie of The Bride’s Cafe and Janie Medley Flora Design!  I am sure you are all familiar with the edgy, romatic style featured on her daily blog in addition to the artistry she weaves into each of her floral creations.  Janie sent over a few of the newest images of her favorite bouquets captured by Katie of Open Air Photography. Read more here about Janie’s line of greeting cards – stunning idea! I combined a sketchy illustration of a variety of blooms.  Quickly painted strokes of yellowish greens and raspberry red add a certain […]

Here at the Momental Studio we are all about experimentation, trying something new and just diving into projects to see where they take us!  A while back the lovely Saakshi contacted us.  She loved our lush style, patterns and sense of color.  She wasn’t exactly sure what that meant in terms of a design for her wedding but was open to our advice and vision.  We began with our classic rose illustrations combined with our newest lacy leaves pattern inside.  Washes of pink watercolor against champagne cardstock and touches of bold painted flourishes throughout were a design element present from […]
