Every ketubah tells a story and some of them have spectacular plots!  This couple exchanged vows on the Winter Solstice during the worst of the pandemic, and they commissioned a ketubah for a celebratory wedding months later.  To capture the magic of the time they married, they requested a bonfire bringing light into the darkness, the moon in the exact phase of the solstice, the two hawks which appeared at the moment they stood at Lake Erie to exchange vows (!!), and the great conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn at that same time.  Both deeply connected to music, they chose to have a personal reference to a particularly meaningful song. One of the joys of creating a ketubah ‘from scratch’ means that symbols and images may be worked into the design where only the couple can recognize them.  A joy!
