A Peek into the Studio – Etsy Binge, New Collections and Pretty Projects

We are knee deep in projects again at the studio!  Wading through the details of some stunning client projects, new invitation collections, photoshoots and an upcoming trek to Utah is my idea of living! Our newest collections take inspiration from some well known art movements, the more organic side of Alice in Wonderland and my […]


A Peek into the Studio – Purple Posies and A Momental Favorite!

This week in the studio purple seems to be the theme!  Ashley’s stunning hydrangea and peony invitations feature a meticulous painting technique that kept our newest Momental Girl Steph busy for days.  A wet in wet technique featuring layers of sheer water color yielded a look that is rich with texture.  Five shade s of […]


A Peek into the Studio – Peacock, Rose and Fleur de Lis Wedding Invitations

It has been a while since my last Peek into the Studio but hopefully these three designs will make up for the absence!  My Versailles swirl created for a client nearly two years ago has truly taken on a life of its own since then.  Originally inspired by an aerial view of Versailles Gardens,  the […]


A Peek into the Studio – Spring is here!

It has been a while since I have given you a peek into the studio.  We are swamped and LOVING every minute of it.  Client projects are shipping daily and I think we owe our UPS guy a massage gift certificate.   The seasons pass before our eyes each year with our invitation designs as […]


A Peek into the Studio – Landscapes and roses.

This time of year at the studio is insane to say the least, the good type of insane that keeps you creative and full of ideas, though.  With many orders leaving the studio each day it is so difficult to choose our favorites but inevitably certain painting techniques or color palettes really draw us in! […]


A Peek into the Studio – Blooms, Swirls and Vintage Lace

The studio is buzzing and we are working our tails off here!  Jess has been helping me lately with the rush of samples recently and we love her gorgeous landscapes and venue illustrations!  Early spring weddings are in full swing and bloom as you can see.  Emily’s  precious pink dogwoods with hand painted pink and […]


Hand painted, handmade wedding invitations – Really?

After having one of the most amazing weeks of my life, I began reflecting more on 2009 this morning.  I have been surrounded by so many talented friends who have truly rallied around the work done here at the Momental Studio.  I’m a big dreamer and an even bigger doer but those I have met […]


A Peek into the Studio – A spring tree and decking the halls!

This week I thought I would feature this pretty invitation since all the Momental Girls are BIG fans.  Naturally we all have varying tastes and while each invitation we create is usually someone’s favorite, this little beauty had all our votes!  From the richly included paper to the embossed shimmer border and rhinestone/pearl embellishments, this […]


A Peek into the Studio – Peacocks, fortunetellers and a proposal in Italy

This time of year our projects are quite varied.  Many clients are sending save the dates for next year’s events while some are wrapping up unique day-of accessory designs for late fall and early winter weddings.  I chose a few of my favorites from the last 2 weeks to share with you! From top left: […]


A Peek into the Studio – Classic Fall with a Momental Twist

As I browse the completed photos from the last week  I was surprised to a reoccurring muted palette.  I am a fan of color and tend to infuse some intense shades into every piece I create – or so I thought!  I must admit my new (and apparent) fondness of the classic fall wedding colors […]


A Peek into the Studio – Damask, Vintage Lace and NYC

I love this time of year.  I am not a huge fan of summer (unless I am on a beach); I can hear the booing now,  BUT I love creating custom invitations and accessories for fall weddings.  SO here are some of my favorites from last week: From left; Marianne’s gatefold invitation opens to reveal […]


Hand Painted, Handmade Wedding Invitations – Really?

Say the phrase hand-painted wedding invitation and most do a double take…then ask “for small orders right?” or inquire “well you reproduce each one on the computer?”.  All of these are valid responses I admit as the thought of individually hand-painting hundreds of pieces is initially mind boggling.  Let me be the first to tell […]
