Getting to create this couple’s 50th wedding anniversary portraits was so special for me and for Jim. We gathered in our Studio in Lockhart last moth, and Donna Bruns, the makeup artist extraordinaire, came out to the studio to do Hortencia’s makeup. We all teared up as Hortencia recounted waiting for “her Joe” during the war. While he was fighting, she was waiting and sewing her wedding dress by hand. (And it is beautiful by the way!)
We were commissioned to create two wall pieces on canvas for display at their anniversary celebration as well as a gorgeous custom Italian Leather Portrait Box, embossed in gold with their family name, “Capello.” These are portraits they plan to enjoy now and to pass down through the generations.
Jim and I are dedicated to bringing our clients the most exquisite pieces created by the finest artisans from all over the world. The days that we deliver wall portraits and install them on our clients’ walls and the days we deliver gorgeous leather albums and boxes are the best days!
We give a heartfelt hank you to the Capello Family for entrusting us with this meaningful project.
