About Us

Hi! We're Megan and Brittany, the sisters behind Momentarily Yours Events!

After making 120 pinwheels, 96 tissue pouf balls, and 15 strands of bunting for Brittany's wedding, we realized we have a knack for crafting.

Once we started to actually miss folding sheets of scrapbook and tissue paper, we decided we should share our love of DIY with those less craftily-inclined who still desire handmade touches at their special events. If you don't have the time to DIY, allow us to do it for you!

We also share a passion for event design, from planning to shopping to styling. That's where our vintage rentals & event set-up services come in! We realize that finding antique gems for a one-time usage at an event can be time-consuming and expensive. Our extensive rental inventory will help you create a custom vintage look for your event while remaining within your budget! And our styling and clean-up services allow you to achieve the look you want without any of the stress of meeting deadlines. You can learn more about our services, inventory, party craft portfolio, and pricing here

This blog is a place for us to share details of our hunting trips, give you inspiration for your vintage and handmade events, spotlight our inventory, share events that we've crafted for, rented to, or styled, and to test out new crafts!

We're excited to start this venture together, and hope you enjoy reading along!

About Megan

Hello, I'm Megan, one half of Momentarily Yours Events.  I live in my hometown of Lee's Summit, MO, less than 3 miles away from my parent's house, with my husband, Brandon, and my cat, Gilligan.  Yes, we named him after the namesake of Gilligan's Island (and I plan on naming all other future pets after the remaining characters!)

Like Brittany, I married my high school sweetheart.  We had dated for seven years before we got married on August 9, 2009.  My wedding was planned in 4 months with a small budget.   At the time, we were also renovating a foreclosure Brandon had bought in January.  Those projects are happy memories.  I really feel like it's our home: something we've created together.

Kids have a special place in my heart.  I am a 2nd grade teacher in a Title 1 (low income) school.  I am passionate about working in this environment.  My fellow teachers and I are patient, dedicated, and fiercely loyal to our kids.  This year another teacher and I started a weekly drama club group for 3-5 graders.  I also teach Sunday school for the 3-9 year olds with my husband.  It's been a new challenge and blessing each week and a great crash course for future parenthood.

I never would have imagined I'd be starting a business with my sis, especially in the wedding/event world.  I was not the type of girl that dreamt up the perfect wedding day.  But on the other hand, it makes perfect sense.  I love making things.  I love to add little details to a room and give it personality.  I love to shop (though Brittany may love it more!)  And most important I love my sis.  I may sound like a big cheese ball, but I am SO excited for this fabulous excuse to spend more time with her!

About Brittany

Hi! I'm Brittany, one half of the sister duo that makes up Momentarily Yours Events! (Before anyone asks, I'm the younger sister. But I'm taller!) 

I'm currently splitting residence between my hometown, Lee's Summit, Missouri, and the beautiful Missoula, Montana. Ryan, my then fiance, now husband and I moved to Missoula in August 2010 so that I could attend the graduate program in Creative Writing at the University of Montana. Now I'll be living in Missoula until May 2013, when Ryan (the aforementioned husband) will graduate with his degree in Computer Science! Until then, I'll be working with my dear sister from afar.

{The Missoula Valley. Kinda nice, right?}

Ryan and I were high school sweethearts. (I kind of stalked him after spying him in the lunch room, but that's a long story I won't get into right now.) After our wedding (on Friday, January 13--we're daredevils!), the craft and design bug had officially bit Megan and I, and we decided to start our own event rental, decoration, and styling business!

{My man & me. The weather held up nicely for us--the light dusting of snow didn't hinder traveling but made a great photo background!} 
{Some of the decorations my sister, bridesmaids, & I made for the reception!}

Since I went into graduate school straight from undergrad, I don't have an official "big girl job" yet, but I'd like to work in writing, editing, and publishing, or as a writing instructor. And of course as a crafter, vintage hunter, and event styler at Momentarily Yours! :)
I am so excited to embark upon the journey of owning a business with my big sis! I definitely feel like I'm at a crossroads in my life (post-graduation and all) and I'm ready to jump in and see what happens next :)
