"The ketubah you made for us is truly an heirloom for a lifetime, and as the dust settles it becomes even more clear what was worth it. 
Did we really need linen napkins? Would we have been fine without the extra favors? Hindsight is always 20/20 and the ketubah shines through as a constant source of joy." 

As the bride above so aptly put it, wedding parties don't last forever. Think of your ketubah as a memory of your wedding. Only unlike your wedding gown that hangs at the back of our closet, or a piece of the cake that you keep in the freezer - your ketubah is designed specifically to be beautifully and prominently displayed in your home - a declaration of your mutual pledge to each other.

The Ketubah is a beautiful artwork immortalising your love and commitment.
The craftsmanship I put into making your ketubah makes the sentiment behind a marriage covenant just that much more special.

SO WHAT IS KETUBAH?
A ketubah is a written marriage pledge. It is comprised out of two integral elements: The central and most important one is THE TEXT. The Second is THE DESIGN. What text and design you choose for your ketubah is up to you. There are in the world ketubot that are made to be folded and kept safe in a vault, but I don't make that kind. Instead,
I create beautiful artworks to be 
cherished & displayed
Which is why you're here as well! 
Together, we'll create a memory of your wedding for generations to come.

I'M NOT JEWISH. CAN I USE A KETUBAH IN MY WEDDING?
Yes! A 'ketubah' is simply Hebrew for a decorative marriage covenant - which is not exclusive to any religion! You can have one regardless if your celebration is religious / secular / same sex / Jewish / Christian / Quaker/ Pagan, Interfaith / or an anniversary. While the traditional ketubah plays a role in the wedding ceremony, as an wedding memento it can even be commissioned exclusively as art for the home following your wedding. 


I DON'T KNOW WHICH TEXT I SHOULD USE?
The text used in your ketubah is decided on by the type of wedding ceremony you've chosen. Are you having an Orthodox wedding? A Conservative wedding? A Reform wedding? A Secular wedding? An Interfaith wedding? And so forth. The type of ceremony you plan to have is completely up to you, and you should choose your officiant accordingly. If you're having a religious ceremony, there's a small selection of texts that you can choose from to fit your ceremony type. If you're having a secular ceremony, you can even write your own text! Your wedding vows to each other are always a good choice.

I'VE CHOSEN MY TEXT. NOW WHAT?
Congratulations, you're already half way through! The design of your ketubah is completely up to you and not dictated by the type of ceremony and text you've chosen for your wedding. Remember, this artwork will hang in your home!
