  • Custom Portrait: Let an artist capture your best wedding or engagement photograph on canvas. An artist created painting of your favorite photo will be a great way to remind you of all the love you have for each other. A photograph is good but custom portrait is special. When someone is painting a portrait for you, it adds depth that is not easily achieved in a photo. Perhaps that is because the act of painting is generally more meaningful than someone taking a photo on their phone, but with a blank canvas you can truly capture a fresh-faced couple fully in love: maybe a rosy cheeked glow, or eyes that sparkle. It is certainly a unique way to let the world know that this is the person with whom you’ve fallen in love! Such a unique wedding gift idea!  Check out Artist Amro Ashry’s stunning portraits HERE.

Wedding Portrait by Artist Dana Swasko on Mishkalo

Portrait by Mishkalo Artist Dana Swasko: $500  Size: 11 x 14

This wedding portrait was a gift from a mother to her daughter and son in law for their anniversary. It was their favorite photo from their wedding.

Dana Swasko creates beautiful charcoal portraits. For this portrait she used many new techniques such as using white ink in the flowers and in their eyes to make those details stand out.  She also incorporated graphite to give their skin a smooth finish.

Dana says ” By creating portraits, be it a person or a home, I feel I am freezing moments in time around me, as though I am capturing the character of my time period in my own way.”

A Wedding Planning Checklist to prepare for your wedding day

Wedding Planning Checklist for Day of Wedding


Here is a day of wedding planning checklist that every bride should have. Although wedding stress starts on the day you get engaged, wedding stress peaks on the day of the wedding.

The wedding day can be very stressful and full of surprises for the bride. You have spent months planning and finding all the different vendors and venues. Finally the big day is looming near and sometimes in spite of all the effort that goes into planning, things may not go as planned.  Sometimes couples throw up their hand and say “I give up.”

Day of Wedding Checklist.

  • Pack all your clothes and accessories that you will need for that day. You will most likely have 2-3 change of outfits. Assemble them in the order that they will be worn so that you are not scrambling to find your shoes or a pair of earrings that go with that outfit.
  • Put all your makeup essentials in one box or a bag. Mark your lipsticks with the name of your outfit so that it is easy to pick out. Also make sure you have picked out your special perfume for that day. Select a perfume that you are going to use on your wedding day, the scent of which will be a reminder of that special moment for you. Also pack some safety pins, hair clips, deodorant and tissues in case you fell emotional.
  • Make sure you have packed a pair of flat sandals to dance the night away.
  • Lastly pack a few small snacks for you to munch on while you are getting ready for the day. Keep your energy levels up for the exciting day ahead.


Personally, I have noticed many brides schedule a stress-relieving activity such as a visit to an art museum or aquarium the day before the wedding as a reliever of wedding stress. Some of Mishkalo artists such as Ira Ivanova and Karina Llergo illustrate how art is such a great stress reliever.

Make sure you print this wedding planning checklist and carry along so that your wedding day is relaxed and enjoyable.

Getting Art for your Newly-Wed Home

Getting Art for your Newly-Wed Home

Meet James and Scott – one of Mishkalo’s couples who are tying the knot in September.

Their love story started several years back at a social event for a Flag football league that they were a part of. Soon their friendship grew and they moved in together as a couple along with their two adorable cats: Binx and Penny.

Last year, at the famous Spanish steps in Washington DC, Scott proposed. Why there, you may ask. The couple have traveled extensively together and a moment that stood out for both of them was the Spanish steps in Rome. Designed in the early 20th century during D.C.’s “City Beautiful” movement, the Spanish Steps vaguely resemble the original version in Rome. Like Rome, D.C.’s Spanish Steps are a neighborhood landmark and a natural gathering place with a romantic touch. James happily accepted the Scott’s proposal.

A few months later, as the reality of their future marital life sunk in, they started looking at their home differently.  James says, “we realized that this is not just a place where we came to after work, but a place of comfort, love and our hopes for the future. And the place looks dull with bare walls that probably depresses even Mikey and Josie.

As they got around to planning their wedding – and the inevitable choice of a wedding registry – they couldn’t think of anything they wanted. Having been together, they had a fully functional home with all its utilitarian comforts.

During this time James came across Mishkalo – a wedding registry for art. “The idea appealed to me immediately” he said.  “Art is a lasting, special gift that we’ll have forever, especially when given as a token of love from our friends and family.  This art will help turn our house into a proper home”

James and Scott have set their wedding date for September 2018, exactly a year after the proposal.

You can see the art they chose for their Mishkalo Registry below. We wish them both a beautiful life together!

Becoming an art collector with Mishkalo – Alyssa and Jacob


Most young people cannot afford art, but it’s an important part of their everyday life. From trendy clothes and home décor to artsy covers for their mobile phones, art is a form of self-expression that’s important to every generation.

This begs the question; how can young people start an art collection when the price tag is well beyond the double digits?


Alyssa and Jacob find themselves in this situation. The pair are engaged and want to jump start their art collection, but between wedding planning and basic living expenses there isn’t exactly room in the budget. That’s when they discovered Mishkalo, a wedding registry for art.

Thrilled with the idea of starting their collection by commemorating their special day, Alyssa and Jacob asked for two pieces for a start, Ira Ivanova’s Purple Haze and Anna Charney’s Catching Electric Feels.

No matter their age, people collect art because it makes them feel, think and see the world in new and interesting ways. Whether you’re drawn to pretty pictures or dramatic sculptures, decorating the home with art adds visual interest to a space and creates a welcoming environment.

Best of all, great art keeps you thinking, the more time you spend with a piece, the more you’ll discover about it.


In the time leading up to their wedding, Alyssa hasn’t stopped raving about their new pieces from Mishkalo. She sees them as a memento of their wedding day that will remind her of the commitment she made to her husband and the support of their wonderful family and friends.

Unlike pots and pans or blenders and toasters, art is a gift that you, your friends, and your family will remember forever as a gift that’s as unique as your marriage will be.

Art for the Millennial Generation

Art for the Millennial Generation

The Milleninial Generation is quite different from the previous generation. Having grown up with the Internet, these tech-savvy individuals have a very different perspective on the world. They have developed different values, like environmental sustainability, personal health and fitness and living a good life but On a Tight Budget. They have a tighter budget until they can save enough money to make bigger purchases.

Meeting Point | Wedding Anniversary gift idea | Bridal Registry for Art

Meeting Point by Mishkalo Artist Evelin Juen.

The following are some observations about this generation.

  1. Making the Process Personal

Millennials are passionate about making personal connections in the art community. They want to get to know the artist and form relationships with the galleries.

  1. Buying Both Online and Offline

Millennials are buying art just as frequently offline as they are online. Art is one purchase that many feel is important to make in person. The rise of social media has allowed Millennials to follow their favorite artists and galleries and stay in the loop about upcoming events or specific pieces.

  1. Looking for Different, Exciting Pieces

As can be expected, younger collectors are looking for something different and unique. Older collectors may be hesitant of new mediums outside of their traditional contemporary works, but younger generations gravitate towards new materials and concepts beyond their realm of comfort.

  1. Lack of Art History Knowledge

Millennial collectors are younger and may not be fully aware of the value of every piece. They choose art that speaks to them, not necessarily what piece has historical importance. The artwork has to resonate with their tastes and sensibilities.

  1. Buying Art as an Asset

Millenials are not afraid to take risks and mostly buy art with the assumption that it will increase in value. The Millennial generation is bold. Their willingness to take risks and seek out unique, exciting mediums could mean big changes for the art community.

Mishkalo, a wedding registry for art was launched to cater to this rising trend and to make art affordable and accessible to wedding couples by having their guests pool together the money to buy them a memorable and valuable gift to cherish all their lives.

To all the engaged couples, bring the joy of art  and joie de vivre into your life. Paint your marriage in color with an art wedding registry!
