Anya and Fima approached me with a unique and exciting project idea, and I felt honored to be able to work on it. In Anya and Fima’s tradition, a wedding contract is written out in an ornate document, known as ketubah.

Wanting their wedding contract to be showcased in a special and unique way, they turned to me for help. After discussing the desired elements (doves in a tree, skyline of Minneapolis as seen from Lake Calhoun, where Anya and Fima had their first date), I worked to create a three-dimensional design with the skyline in the background and the doves protectively encasing the wedding vows.

The text was beautifully crafted by a very talented calligrapher, and it was important to preserve its elegance and importance.

Anya and Fima were thrilled with the results and I had the incredible opportunity to present the Ketubah to the newlywed couple for the official signing at their wedding.
