Sunrise II Ketubah
by Jessica Kraft
A welcoming, intricate tree of life spreads its branches against a vibrant magenta sunrise under the famous saying from Song of Songs: “I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine.” The tree’s multi-colored trunk sprouts from a subtle heart shape, resting upon intertwined vines and flowers that frame the text. Two birds take flight from the tree, symbolizing the long, loving journey of the bride and groom.
