How long have you been in business?
We are entering our 8th year in business.
What inspired you to start your business?
I loved working with people after 7 years in the retail industry. I figured that drawing and painting in some fashion every day surely had to lead to making a living. I combined the two along with the idea to fill a void in the wedding industry and thus Momental was born!
Tell us why you think your business is successful.
We listen to our clients, love to get to know them as people and pride ourselves on an innate ability to translate their vision into fine art on paper. Our custom process is streamlined, highly personal, stress-free and uncomplicated; all traits that resonate well with busy brides.
What makes your business unique?
The Momental Team is made up of lifelong friends who share, among other things, several degrees in art and education. Jessica, Kelley, Jaime, Steph, Joy and Linda ensure that each bride feels empowered and delighted by their Momental experience. As professionals, we possess the skill and talent to create exquisite, breathtaking designs. As friends, we understand the importance of the personal touches that transform each finished product into a breathtaking work of art; one that tells a story of life, friendship, and love.
Is there a particular niche you target?
Meticulous, artistic, creative, professional couples planning a heartfelt wedding. Many of our couples DIY elements of their celebration regardless of budget.
What is your company’s philosophy when working with wedding couples?
Brides collaborating with us have the rare opportunity to make visually stunning personal statements. Our hand painted designs capture emotions not easily expressed in language. We believe a Momental Design should enable brides to share heartfelt sentiments and blend details that hold deep personal significance for the couple.
My fabulous team of friends are by my side every day and make our custom wedding invitation studio the most fabulous place to be; at least in my opinion! We laugh, create and enjoy life everyday. But most importantly we are dedicated to envisioning and creating handmade custom wedding invitations as fine art with the belief that a worry-free process is key to a successful design experience.
How do you help couples customize their weddings?
Custom design is actually more of a progression than a process, as each design is completely unique. We begin with a bride’s vision, which evolves to create a finished product that is tailored to your personality. We pride ourselves on guiding clients through every decision. We strive to anticipate their questions, manage your timeline and make meaningful design suggestions that suit your vision.
At what point in the planning process do you typically work with couples?
We work with most of our couples about a year out from their wedding date.
