One of the greatest challenges of the small business owner in the wedding industry is SCALABILITY. How do you scale a business that is built on YOUR creativity, YOUR artistry, YOUR talent? How do you produce more events, more product, when it’s all relying on just you?
We are thrilled that Kristy Rice with Momental Designs will be speaking on scalability at Be Sage Conference in December. Kristy has a personal obsession with the visual arts and has used that obsession to launch and grow Momental Designs. She knows the steps needed to take a small home business and turn it into a business that thrives on account of her team. We cannot wait to learn from Kristy this December at Hilton Head!
Kristy Rice is indeed a storyteller of style; communicating for her brides in paint and pen, paper and prose, very personal stories with attention to detail and an unmistakable sense of hand. Kristy’s intuitive skill is in combining her distinctive watercolor technique with her decorative painting style and whimsical illustrations. In less than a decade, her personal obsession with the visual arts has evolved into an innovative international brand which garners attention from wedding publications around the world.

As a trailblazer of hand-painted wedding stationery, Kristy and her team have literally painted their way into the hearts’ of couples everywhere… As exhibited in her vast portfolio, art is for her not an act, but a lifestyle. As expressed daily on her blog RiceInk, Kristy finds inspiration all around her, from her own creative projects and business philosophy, to her personal experiences and travels around the world. Widely regarded as a wedding industry tastemaker, Kristy has been commissioned by various brands and outlets to produce creative editorials focusing on wedding style and color trends.
