A Commissioned Ketubah is uniquely designed to reflect your interests, values, and dreams in a most beautiful way. This is your chance to create a work of art of intense meaning, that will shine at your wedding and hang in your home forever.
My papercut ketubot can be simple or complex, traditional or modern. We'll work together to come up with a plan for your ketubah that feels just right to you. Once we talk, I'll send you a sketch or two, and then alter the sketch until the ketubah design really feels like it's meant for you.
