My exploration into cut-paper traditions took a happy turn this summer when I was asked to create a custom Ketubah, or Jewish marriage contract, for a friend's wedding. Once a purely legal document that outlined the financial responsibilities of a husband to his wife, the tradition has since evolved to symbolize mutual love and equal commitment. The modern Ketubah is an heirloom-quality work of art, cherished by couples regardless of faith. It has been a wonderful experience to create such a meaningful piece. Congratulations, S&K!
