the sentinel in downtown portland - stunning winter wedding


i can’t believe that this was in february! and that we are just about to get into october. time could not be moving any faster right now, i feel like i’m grasping at the fringes everyday & trying to get something done on my never-ending to-do list.

emily contacted me to do the mirror at the sentinel in downtown, portland for her wedding to arlo. this pair was so beautiful together, and their pictures make me feel all the feels - just take a look for yourself.

i loved doing this custom design on a mirror, i used white paint to hand-paint the calligraphy & block letters, all by hand. it was awesome to make this p ece in such an elegant hotel, it definitely made me feel fancier than i was. the mirror completely covered the wall, from the floor to the ceiling, and was in between the two elevators that would brought guests to the ceremony & reception.

it took me a while to measure everything out, and i had to stand on a ladder because i am so short! but everything turned out well and i was so glad emily asked me to make this custom calligraphy piece for her downtown portland wedding. i hope i see more of this in my future!
