Sometimes the images that people want on their ketubot spring so fully formed that there’s little for me to do but listen up and prepare my brushes!   This couple knew exactly how they wanted their document to look, with meaningful references to their Jewish lives and the influence of the Big Apple on each of them.   The lower corners obviously highlight architectural landmarks from Jerusalem and New York, and closer to the center a small feast of foods include not only kiddush wine, but the groom’s late father’s favorite egg cream next to the seltzer bottle.

Notice that the colors of this entire ketubah are soft.  The text was written in grey ink, not black, to fit into the design as the focal point without overwhelming the delicacy of the rest of the surrounding imagery.
