Desert Rose Ketubah

As unlikely as it seems, the flowering plant pictured is indeed the desert rose.  One of the biggest challenges that I face as a designer is to create something unified and beautiful out of the imagery and text supplied by my clients.   This one proved to be a challenge because the couple insisted upon the actual flowering desert rose (described by some as a blooming elephant’s leg!) as the central image.   I looked through dozens of photographs and finally decided to put the plants on a short diet and emphasize the spectacular flowers instead of the mighty stems.   My research gave me an emotional ‘hook’ as I read that the plant seems to exist on solid rock, sending its extremely strong roots down into barely visible crevices.  What an image for a relationship, deeply rooted and as strong as can be, and beautiful as well!
