On their wedding day, the bride and groom stand beneath the chuppah to foreshadow the future home they will together build through the union of their married lives. Analogous to Abraham’s tent which was open on four sides, so too is the chuppah to gesture this hospitality and welcoming aura shown to one’s guests.
This Ketubah frames the hebrew text beneath a wisteria canopy chuppah supported by green foliage trellis pillars. Tiers of wisterias descend like a draped organic chandelier unfurling to gravity’s spell. The soft lavender accents sing a soft duet with the pastel tones of the background.
This Ketubah is available in a soft pink, an oceanic aqua or gentle spring palette water colour collaged backgrounds.

The hymn “אני לדודי ודודי לי – I am my Beloved’s and my Beloved is mine” (Song of Songs – Shir HaShirim 6:3), a romantic declaration written by King Solomon expresses the affinity between husband and wife, reflecting the intrinsic commitment, care and responsibility mutually undertaken by husband and wife in their voyage through life and beyond.
This psalm frames the chuppah as a domed arc, echoing the shape of an enclosure to reinforce the motif of the home that will be created and the union of the destined souls as one. This psalm is overlaid with a lace material texture; and in doing so evokes bridal and floral aesthetics that relate to the overall composition.
If you would like a Ketubah that frames the text within your own Chuppah design or has other botanical / floral / architectural elements, speak to Ryan.
