I Found Whom My Soul Loves
Michelle & Rob
“Michelle and Rob really bring out the best in each other. Within this hand cut paper artwork are embedded symbols such as pomegranates, doves, hearts, and chamsas representing their balanced partnership. The two doves are linked with the words from Song of Songs, “I found whom my soul loves.” The paper cut is layered on top of Nealese paper with a wood grain texture mirroring their appreciation for a modern aesthetic.”
Zorah & Shawn
“It is so special to meet a couple who held out to find their true besheret. Zorah and Shawn are a special couple that compliment each other beautifully. Creating a Jewish home together was a priority and this ketubah reflects their beliefs. Each circle surrounding the text includes an image that represents one of the Sheva Brachot. The text surrounding it reflects the words from Song of Songs “Behold Thou Art Beautiful, my love; Behold Thou Art Beautiful, my beloved.”
Danya & Andrew
“Danya is a fun loving girl with a passion for music and Andrew is a kind hearted mensch. The two came together by the miracle of a set up by a mutual friend with a plan. It only seemed appropriate for a whimsical ketubah design to commemorate their true love story. The two golden birds nestle close together atop 5 wires (like a music staff) ready to make their harmonious tune.”
Roots of Love
Rebecca & Jason
“It does not take long to be infected by Rebecca’s optimism and warmth. Couple this with Jason, a calming and down-to-earth fellow, and the pair are a pleasure to spend time with. The tree on the left represents his tranquil nature while the tree on the right symbolizes her fiery personality. Both are deeply rooted in their beliefs, yet their branches (and futures) reach outward and upward together towards a bright, promising, and exciting future.”
Behold Thou Art Beautiful
Rosette & Jonathan
“When I finally found my own beloved, I knew our ketubah would capture our common beliefs and future goals which aligned perfectly. The blue background and chamsas embedded within the fluid lines represent a protecting force against the evil eye and solidify this harmonious partnership. The Hebrew text surrounding the ketubah is taken from The Song of Songs and reads, “Behold Thou Art Beautiful, my love; Behold Thou Art Beautiful, my beloved.”
