nora & sam custom ketubah

"We wanted something that was not overtly Jewish since Sam is not and something we could frame and hang in the house as a piece of art as well as a ketubah."

When Nora and I first spoke about her ketubah, she and her fiancé, Sam, were planning to wed on his parent's property under an old-growth tree in the back yard. Though they ultimately decided to have the wedding at another outdoor venue, I kept the motif of two branches of a cypress tree—noted for its strength and durability— joining in union as the cental image for this custom-designed and hand-printed marriage contract.

Hand-pulled lithograph and relief print with hand-painted watercolor background on 100% cotton rag paper, custom portfolio case.
