Hebrew and English Ketubot (Gorst Studio)...

Calligraphy done by hand is a dynamic element all of it’s own, especially when it’s being created for something as long lasting as a ketubah.

The Bright Kiss Ketubah (This is not a Ketubah)...

With all the traditional styles out there today, it’s refreshing to see something that isn’t your average, everyday ketubah. It’s rare to find a company so adventurous to try it’s hand at a modern style ketubah, and even more rare to find a company that actually succeeds in doing it. That being said, we are happy to give “Best Modern Ketubah” award to the Bright Kiss Ketubah. This Is Not A Ketubah succeeds with their Romero Britto inspired art piece that combines all the love and joy of a wedding day with a unique and modern feel. Originally posted 2012-08-14...
