Robert and Nicolas’ stylish wedding was featured on the wedding website Style Me Pretty. The best part for me was seeing the ketubah I made for them in a quick cameo in the wedding video:

Robert and Nicolas chose the Tulip Ketubah, in white.
This year I have contributed several articles about interfaith weddings to the excellent wedding site Wedding Yentas. Check them out here:

One of my customers, Stephanie, wrote a thoughtful and beautiful blog post on the process she and her fiancé Dan went through to choose an interfaith ketubah:
As an interfaith couple, we know it won’t be easy. To come together from different faiths and form a unified family will be tough. We both will… encounter people in both our faiths who seek to tear us down or make it more difficult. But we’re making a one way trip, we’re joining together forever, in spite of the downsides.

I also have to thank her for the kind words she shared about me:
After months of searching, I ordered our Ketubah from (Modern Ketubah)…. Let me tell you, it is even more beautiful in person than it looked on the website. Daniel, the guy who runs Modern Ketubah, was awesome. He responded to email super-quick and did an excellent job making our ketubah. The designs he has on his site are pretty neat too… a unique perspective on flowers and nature, to go along with his unique perspective on the ketubah.
Thank you Stephanie, and congratulations to you both.
Miriam and Erick of San Rafael California wrote to say “Thanks again for the beautiful ketubah!” and share this beautiful photograph of the bride signing the ketubah. (Photo by Diana Maire Photography.)
This is a proud moment for our country. As Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg of New York said:
“No American president has ever supported a major expansion of civil rights that has not ultimately been adopted by the American people, and I have no doubt that this will be no exception.”
And as Dr. Martin Luther King said:
”A genuine leader is not a searcher for consensus but a molder of consensus.”
Amen to that.
Some thank you notes just blow you away:
Thank you so much for doing such an outstanding job on my Fire Ketubah — I absolutely love it. We are hanging it right by the front door of the apartment and something about it just lifts my spirits every single time I see it. What a gorgeous way to sign our marital vows — it is the most meaningful part of my life and the most beautiful piece of artwork I have ever seen. Thank you so much for creating such a beautiful keepsake for our wedding.
Thank you, Melissa and Greg, it was my pleasure!
When Aaron wrote to me about the ketubah I made for him, his thoughts echos what I hear from many of my customers. The people who buy their ketubah from me tend to be smart, creative people who know what they like, and are willing to search for it. People who want something original and personal for their homes:
We spent countless hours on all sorts of ketubah websites and we just didn’t love the more traditional ones out there. I personally looked at over 1,000 ketubahs one afternoon. While many of them are beautiful, they really aren’t our style. We don’t like the intertwined trees, the Star of David, etc. that is typical of most ketubahs.
We knew we wanted something to hang on the wall of our condo that went with our modern style. Many of the more traditional ketubahs would stick out like a sore thumb. We tend to like things that are a little less mainstream as we prefer to showcase things others don’t have or haven’t even seen before. The uniqueness is important to us.
And your ketubah complements the style, look and feel of our home perfectly!
