Let’s get to know a little more about owner and artist, Bri Ellis and the team behind Portland Make-up & Hair!


Champagne: How long has Portland Make-up & Hair been in business, tell us more about your company?

Bri: I began specializing in weddings 8 years ago when several of my clients from the salon were getting married that summer. (However, I have been working in the industry since 2000). I realized I really loved working with brides, and wanted to do it more! I LOVE weddings, and it is such an honor to be part of a brides special day!

Champagne: When and why did you decide you wanted to be a make-up & hair stylist?

Bri: Growing up with four older sisters and a mother who were all naturals with make-up & hair, I couldn’t help but learn the “ins and outs” of all things beauty. As you’ve probably heard several make-up/hair artists say:  I was always the one who did my girlfriends make-up & hair for dances, etc. However, I didn’t really think of it as an option for a career until after I went away to college hoping to study communications.  After a while, I just knew that I wasn’t pursuing something I really wanted to do. So,  I stopped school to try & figure out what WAS the right fit. One day, I was sitting in my stylist’s chair, getting my hair done and it hit me. I could tell how much she loved her job, plus she was incredibly successful. I realized that I actually COULD do this as a career, and that it was a perfect fit for me!

Champagne: Best tip you have for couples planning their wedding?

Bri: Just have fun & try not to stress!!  Also, referrals from friends are a great way to find great vendors!

image


Champagne: What sets your business apart?

Bri: Beyond excellence in Hair & Make-up design, we tend to the pampered client. We know to anticipate and tackle every imaginable beauty “crisis”…….. From developing a meticulous hair and makeup schedule & helping you get out the door on time, to dealing with emergency dress repairs, to making sure your photo sessions look perfect and go off smoothly.

Champagne: What is your favorite part of weddings?

Bri: I guess I would say that my favorite part of my job is the long lasting & meaningful relationships that I get to develop with my brides.  I have several of my brides who have gotten married years ago that still come to me for cuts & color.  It is so cool to be there for one of the most special days of their lives-  then continue to grow that relationship over time.  I am so happy that I don’t just do their make-up & hair on their wedding day, and then never see them again.  I get to watch their families grow, and their lives develop.  It’s awesome!

Day 14 of 30: Washington High School, Revolution Hall

0 Comments • Posted by Champagne on February 27, 2015

We’re almost half way through our 30 days segment! On this beautiful Friday we invite you to enjoy the 360 degree views at Portland’s newest wedding and event venue! The historic Washington High School’s Revolution Hall, opened their doors in 1908 and it’s newly renovated private event space is available now! Take a break at your end of your work day and enjoy getting to know Revolution Hall!


Champagne: When does Washington High School open, tell us more about this project and wedding venue?

Rachel:We are currently open for private events on the roof and in our auditorium! This has been an incredible project that brought together the smartest corporate minds and the most creative musical souls to make a collaborative, unique space in an old high school. Along with a diverse range of companies, there is an 830-person seated auditorium and two bars. The highlight of the building is the crown of the space, the rooftop deck. It has 360 degree views of the city, brand new construction, and an impressive list of amenities. It’s absolutely incredible, and I spend most of my days up there!

Champagne: What do you love most about being a part of the wedding industry?

Rachel: I love that weddings never go out of style. They change and move and become more interesting, but everyone keeps falling in love and wanting to celebrate that. Big parties about being in love! I also like to be the magical fairy who takes away stress and brings clarity to a process that can be really intimidating and confusing.

Champagne: Best tip you have for couples planning their wedding?

Rachel: Delegate, assign single tasks to individuals- they’ll obsess over getting their job just right and nobody ends up being overwhelmed.

Champagne: Best tip you have for couples planning their wedding?

Nicole: I would recommend not getting lost in all the ideas out there whether they be in magazines, online or in social media.  Let your wedding day be about the two of you and what represents the love the you share and the things that you like.  It is easy to get caught up in trends and DIY ideas etc.  At the end of the day, the wedding day will be a memory you hold onto forever so let it be a memory of what mattered to you.

Champagne: What sets your venue apart?

Nicole: Bella Via is unique because it is a boutique venue. I am the venue owner and I am the face of the venue. When you want to tour the venue or contact the venue, you will hear back from me. I get to meet all my clients, have direct contact with them throughout their planning process and because we only book one wedding per day, we make our clients feel like a priority from the beginning of their planning period through their wedding day. The connections that I make with my clients has them coming back for celebrations years later and return business in this industry is such a huge compliment.

Champagne: What is your favorite part of weddings?

Nicole: My favorite part of weddings is seeing the bride walk down the aisle and the look that the groom’s face. Sometimes it’s a smile, sometimes there are tears but is always so pure and so emotional.
