A marriage that honors the traditions of Judaism and Greek culture led this couple to incorporate both Greek and Hebrew in the design of this elaborate papercut document. The line, “Where there is love, there is life” appears in the text and has been pulled out to create the design on either side of the text lozenge.  Surrounded by papercut olive branches and a traditional key pattern, the text is centered and floats above a painted background that simulates deep space and the imagery with which we have become familiar by way of the Hubble satellite and others.  Color was most important to the bride and groom, and touches of gold sparkle through the piece. The entire work is cut from one sheet of white paper with the Greek and Hebrew words painted gold on the papercut.
