I have been creating ketubot for over 20 years, focusing on bringing a modern aesthetic to the ketubah by reinterpreting the arts of calligraphy, watercolors and gilding.

My passion and inspiration for creating ketubot began when friends asked me to design a custom ketubah for their interfaith, intercultural wedding. It was a joy and honor to create a custom piece of artwork inspired by my friends' heritages that celebrated and embodied their unique union.

To make this first ketubah I spent the summer teaching myself Hebrew calligraphy and created my own unique lettering, which I still use to this day.

The ketubah is not only a symbolic document but a piece of artwork that will hang in a couple's home. When designing ketubot, I pull inspiration from the couples, blending my own modern aesthetic and traditional elements with their ideas. I enjoy creating a piece of artwork that reflects the couple and will bring them joy to look at for years to come.

I live and work in the East Village of New York City, the same neighborhood where Yiddish culture thrived 100 years ago. I love that in a small way I‘m bringing it back.

I create custom ketubot and also have a portfolio of ready-made ketubah prints and text-only calligraphy options. For more information, visit: theketubah.com.

Confused about where to begin? I can help! I've worked with a wide range of couples from traditional orthodox, conservative, and reform to same-sex, interfaith and even non-Jewish couples. I can offer text examples and answer any questions you may have. Please don't hesitate to reach out with inquiries or questions.

Thank you for visiting my WeddingWire page, and to the engaged couples out there, mazel tov on your engagement! Read less

Stephanie created the most beautiful Ketubah for my husband and me. I am an artist myself and hated about 99% of the Ketubahs that I saw---they were corny, ordinary and even tacky.
We wanted a piece of artwork that reflected us as a couple, reminded us of our wedding day (farm wedding in Autumn) and would be timeless i.e. we didn't want to outgrow the design or, worse, get sick of the design.

Stephanie's designs are organic and simply beautiful. We met with Stephanie and she showed us a few of her designs. Stephanie worked with us to reimagine one of her spring-floral designs, into autumn foliage. It perfectly captures the beauty of our wedding day. It's simple, graceful, and beautiful.

In addition to being a talented artist, Stephanie was a wonderful resource for us. We included traditional Aramaic on our Ketubah but then wrote our own English vows. Stephanie provided us with examples and was extremely professional and knowledgeable throughout the process. If you don't know how to write a particular quote or your name in Hebrew - don't worry, she will!
