Winkleman Pasek Ketubah

A challenge in this time of upended expectations came to me in the guise of a printed document that needed embellishment.  Early in the pandemic, this couple chose to marry in a tiny ceremony at a very carefully chosen woodland site in Maine.  With a text already completed and access to photos, I was able to recreate the setting in a ‘frame’ around the print:  the huppah, bridal bouquet, site of their engagement and dinners, and reference to the garlic scapes, bicycles, and landscape of the beautiful setting of the wedding.  A bit of papercut art breaks through the frame and connects the bouquet to the central text.  With so much taken away in isolation, this work of the heart is a step towards honoring that great strange day.  Mazal tov!
