Shelby & Daniel, a stunning ketubah for a stunning wedding

Shelby first contacted me about her ketubah almost a full year before her scheduled wedding. Whenever that happens, I know that the ketubah is going to be a central, meaningful heirloom for the couple. Shelby and her groom, Daniel ordered a highly customized ketubah, with their own text and custom color to match their wedding motif. It was wonderful to catch up with them after the big day and ogle their stunning wedding photos. 
How did the two of you meet?
We met at a mutual friend's house as they were hosting a Shabbat potluck dinner. It was quite fun and serendipitous really.

How did you know he/she was the one?
For him, he knew when she was able to pick up on all his pop culture and sci-fi references. For her, when he started talking about how much he cared for his family, which includes his pets.

What did you want your ketubah to tell about your love story?
Our ketubah was created in the color scheme of our wedding and features several trees, it has a focal point of the couple embracing, and for us, it really signifies how we center our relationship not only on caring and supporting one another but in doing so while embracing Jewish tradition.

What is the most important value as a foundation for your marriage and why?
A focus on not only our Jewish identities but building and supporting the community overall.

What advice would you give to other couples just starting the wedding planning process?
Try not to stress about it as much as possible.

What was your favorite moment of the wedding day?
The photographer got a "candid" shot of us high-fiving one another immediately after the ceremony and this is really a special moment. I think it just shows how we care about one another and how excited we were to continue our journey in love.

So gorgeous Anna! Do you ever get nervous when presenting it to the bride? Having booked you so far in advance, does that add pressure or do you thrive from it?

I think thats incredible that you play such an integral role in this lifetime milestone. What an honor! (I get asked to do weddings, but its normally signs that say “Bathroom” with an arrow on it hahaha

Anyone who knew me in 2016, knew that I was on the verge of a nervous breakdown. And it wasn’t just the election – though that didn’t help. I wasn’t getting much sleep. I was barely eating and barely spending any quality time with my family. I was the definition of burning the candle at both ends --- after running my art studio as a “side hustle” for 6 years, I was going to make this the year that I would take the leap and go in on my art business full time.

After being a guest at my wedding, and with her own wedding scheduled on the horizon, Shannon bravely enlisted me to make her ketubah – my first official ketubah order. I have to confess -- I was nervous. This was a lot of responsibility! It's one thing to make a ketubah for yourself and your husband (who, let's be honest, loves everything you do), but quite another to create something that your friends will keep in their home forever and pass on to their future children!

I want to extend my deepest gratitude to Melanie Woodrow of ABC7 News for helping spread the word about my efforts to replace ketubahs for anyone who lost theirs in the recent wildfires in California.
