The Modern Ketubah Blog

In this blog I discuss what goes into creating fine art wedding ketubah, as well as ideas about wedding ceremonies and traditions, and answer some of the questions and comments from the couples I've worked with.

New color variations for The Petals Ketubah

by     /    Ketubah Design    /    Tags:       (id 391)  

The Petals Ketubah was one of the first ketubah designs I created, and year after year it has proven to be one of the most popular. Something about the soft colors and delicate yet emotive lines of the gerber daisy petals seems to strike a chord in many couples. Due to its popularity, I have decided to release it in two new color variations: pink, and black and white.

The Petals Ketubah is available in ivory (the original), black and white, and pink.

The idea came from a groom’s mother, who called inquiring about the design. Her son’s wedding flower is the pink gerber daisy, so she wondered if it was available in that color. I decided that it made a lot of sense, and quickly created these new variations. Remember that if you don’t see exactly what you are hoping for, it always pays to ask!

More non-Jewish couples are getting a ketubah

by     /    Interfaith Weddings  &  News    /    Tags:          (id 387)  

J Weeky, the Jewish news weekly for Northern California, published an article about non-Jewish couples who are choosing to have a ketubah and featured Modern Ketubah, and our wonderful customers Brooke and Jez:

When Brooke Wheeler, 38 and her husband Jez Hildred, 42, got married in England in July 2003, they sat and signed the marriage register in front of the guests and civil servant officiant right after their wedding.

“But then you’re signing a civil document,” Wheeler explained. “My husband and I aren’t religious, but we liked the idea of having a document that served the more significant emotional aspects, like we were signing a bond to each other to share our lives.”

The ketubah looks perfect!

After receiving their ketubah from me, Jane and Fernando wrote:

“The Ketubah looks perfect! I’m looking forward to signing it and hanging it on our wall! I love the wording and most importantly the artwork. I love nature and roses are my favorite flowers so I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect background! I also enjoy reading the ketubah because it really represents us and our beliefs. Thank you for your work!”

Celebrating eight years of creating ketubahs

by     /    News    /    Tags:       (id 372)  

This March marked my eighth year of being in business as Modern Ketubah. What started as a simple idea back in 2003, took off and has become a major part of my career. Looking back, I have created ketubahs for nearly 1,200 couples across the United States, Canada and the UK. My ketubahs have been part of nearly every kind of wedding ceremony you can think of: interfaith, reform, multi-cultural, conservative and orthodox Jewish, non-religious, Christian, and same-sex weddings. I have had the privilege to be part of the most important day of so many people lives, it’s rather humbling.

And to think, this all started with my fiancé (now wife) and I looking for our own ketubah, and me realizing “hey, I can do this!” Creating ketubahs combined my two passions, design and art. It allowed me to create a business built on all of my skills, interests, and talents. And most importantly, it allowed me to achieve a lifelong goal and begin to start making a living as an artist. Thank you to all of my wonderful customers and friends, and here’s to the future!

Our ketubah is absolutely stunning!

Talia and Matt just wrote to tell me:

We received our Ketubah yesterday. What can I say? It is absolutely stunning! We chose your non-traditional Ketubah because we are a non-traditional couple! We searched for many ketubahs online as well as other places when we found your site. Yours was the only web site that I kept returning back to. Thank you so much!
