Isn't it funny how random events in your life can set off a chain reaction that affects you years later? One of my best friends got married in Stowe, Vermont in the summer of 2014. When we traveled out here for her wedding, I remember looking around at the stunning Green Mountains while sipping Trapp Family Lodge ale with my husband, and saying to each other that we could totally picture living here one day. Well, despite have no connection to this area, two years later we packed up our lives and headed to Vermont where we've now been living for over a year. I couldn't love this place more. Life is funny like that! This is a picture of the wedding certificate I gifted my friend for that fateful wedding three years ago.

“Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it. The river was cut by the world's great flood and runs over rocks from the basement of time. On some of the rocks are timeless raindrops. Under the rocks are the words, and some of the words are theirs. I am haunted by waters.” ― Norman Maclean, A River Runs Through It and Other Stories Pic of the Paint Burst - River ketubah, new in the shop this year. Also available as a wedding certificate.

Today we had the first frost of the season. Time to make some hot cocoa and then gaze at springy wedding inspiration. This mood board is inspired by the 2017 Pantone color of the year, Greenery.

The daylight savings blues has me reaching for ALL THE COFFEE. How do you survive the darkest part of the year? I fire up the kettle every afternoon and spend as much time as I can sketching in front of my full spectrum light :)

Anyone going hiking this Sunday? Now that we live in Vermont, hiking is my go to weekend activity in the fall. I'm guessing a good chunk of my clients are fans as well since the Rainy Mountain ketubah and wedding certificate have continued to be one of the top sellers for the past 4 years.

As a couple, are you measured, calm and deliberate, or wild, chaotic, and spontaneous? If the latter, my new design "Good Earth Burst," might feel just right to you. As a methodical person myself, this design took me a little out of my comfort zone. But it's been fascinating to see what types of couples are drawn to it.

Intertwining trees is such a powerful symbol of love and marriage. Maybe that's why I keep coming back to it as a motif in my wedding illustration work. And while nearly every ketubah artist in the past 30 years has created an intertwining trees ketubah design, the symbolism never stops feeling fresh...and relevant...to today's couples. What do you think?

Jewish weddings include some of the most wonderful traditions, don't they? I never really stopped to think about it until recently. Now I live in a city where most people have never attended a Jewish wedding before meeting me. So a simple question about what I do for a living often turns into a long explanation of ketubot, the horah, smashing the glass, and all the other incredible parts of Jewish wedding tradition. It's made me appreciate how unique, timeless and beautiful these rituals really are.

I had so much fun this summer doing a custom Quaker Wedding Certificate featuring Mt. Hood, Mt. Bachelor and the McKinzie River in Oregon. I grew up in Washington state, so camping in Oregon was a huge part of my childhood. Working on this sure brought me back :)

It's a gray, gray day here in Vermont, so I needed to look at some summery trees. This is the "Birch Trees - Summer" ketubah (also available as a wedding certificate). My favorite part about it is the secret Hebrew phrase hiding in the leaves. It translates to "I have found the one in whom my soul delights."

I find tiny house portraits so charming. Here's a custom ketubah featuring a little portrait of Tower House in Martha's Vinyard where Emily and Josh married last month. Another favorite part of this ketubah was the "Ani L'Dodi..." (I am my beloved's and my beloved is mine) hidden in the botanical wreath. It was so wonderful to work with you guys!

Another design from my brand new "Etched in Stone" collection of ketubahs and wedding certificates. It's an incredibly minimalist design (especially by ketubah art standards). I love how the design seems to be enveloping the text in an airy, marble hug. It also comes in a darker version with a different texture. As you can probably tell, I'm all about marble right now!

The “Etched in Stone” collection is 6 ketubahs and 6 wedding certificates that each, in some way, feature marble and granite textures. With soft colors and crisp geometric patterns, these designs represent both the tenderness and gravity inherent in marriage. Very excited to have launched this brand new collection!

This was a very special custom ketubah that I designed for a dear friend last year. It features the ornamental gate that leads onto Princeton University's campus (my alma mater!) Kassi met Jon as an undergraduate, and the rest is history. I can't believe these two have been married for almost a year and a half now!

I’m excited to announce the launch of a brand new line of ketubahs and wedding certificates call the "Etched in Stone" series. The idea for this line first emerged sometime last spring. During the madness of the spring wedding rush, I found myself craving extreme minimalism – clean lines, limited colors, a cool contemporary feel. In other words, something very different from what I typically illustrate. [The Marble Waves - Amethyst Wedding Certificate from the new Etched in Stone collection]

Comment from Ink With Intent:


Now that my busy season is finally over, I'm going through all the ideas I've had over the last year to figure out what to illustrate next. It’s a strange process, going through 8 months worth of “ooo-how-abouts” and “hmmm-what-ifs” and figuring out which ideas might actually have legs. After all, a little time tends to reveal a lot about an idea. Some ideas that I couldn’t wait to draw back in April now feel a little…flat? Others that were only the haziest of thoughts last February have now coalesced into a solid vision. But October is the time when, with a clear mind, I finally get to riffle through all these half-baked plans and pursue the ones that speak loudest.

As a ketubah and wedding certificate artist, October is my favorite month of the year. And not just because I can finally take a deep breath after the insanity of summer’s wedding season (though that’s nice too). It’s because I finally have the bandwidth to dig out all the ideas I set aside, all the doodles I stashed in drawers, and all the vague notions I jotted down on scratch paper over the previous year.

The "I'll hold your hand" ketubah is one of my oldest (and still one of my favorite) designs. Don't you think that holding hands is an incredibly sweet and intimate thing to do? Now that my hands are more often than not holding a squirming toddler, pushing a stroller, or wrangling a leash, I know how rare and special a gift it is. This design comes in three versions: bride-groom, groom-groom and bride-bride. I can also create custom silhouettes of the two of you.

And just like that, it's cold. Time to reminisce about the Malibu, California ketubah I illustrated for an awesome couple last year. The scene is taken from the bride's mother's back yard. Um, major jealousy over here. My favorite part about working on this particular illustration was adding their little black lab frolicking in the waves. Happy 1 year anniversary Hannah and David!

It's pretty rare that I get to work with someone locally. After all, there aren't a ton of Jewish weddings (or, people, for that matter) in this little corner of Vermont. So it was a special day when I had the chance to design a custom ketubah / wedding certificate for Sophia and Sam who were married this past summer. They tied the knot at an incredible venue called "All Souls" which looks out over rolling fields, beautiful Lake Champlain and the stunning Adirondaks.

I had such an amazing time working with clients Kevin and Tovah on a design that was DEFINITELY outside of my comfort zone. This lovely couple was having an art deco-inspired bash, and they wanted their ketubah to both capture the underlying aesthetic of the wedding and also represent the place they call home (see the Brooklyn Bridge and NYC skyline at the bottom?) Congrats on your 2 month anniversary, you guys :)

The days are getting shorter around here, and I find myself being more and more drawn to darker / moodier designs. I think there's something so romantic about dark textured backgrounds on ketubahs and wedding certificates. Yes, love is light and airy and joyful, but it's also profound, weighty and deep.
