These exquisitely crafted, highly detailed cut paper ketubahs come to us from Papercuts by Oren Ketubah Design, based in New York, NY. Each one is truly a work of art! Here’s Oren to tell us more:

A ketubah is a traditional Jewish wedding contract. It is customary to have it made by an artist so that it can be displayed in the home. As such it is both a work of art, but also a deeply personal document meant to remind the couple of their commitment to one another.

After the wedding there are only a few things that remain — after the flowers are gone and the food is eaten, the reminders of the day are the photography, and in the case of Jewish weddings, the ketubah.

In recent years this tradition has been adopted by couples who are not Jewish by descent. I often receive orders from couples who want to put their wedding vows on a decorated document, and of course Quaker weddings all have marriage certificates that function in exactly the same way as the Jewish ketubah.
