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!

Stephanie is an amazing artist. Her works are custom, one of a kind pieces of art that will surely be treasured by any couple engaging her services. As a professional, she is very easy to communicate with, available and very attuned to details—something extremely important for a ketubah artist whose concern is accuracy of text. At the same time, she is flexible to listen to couples' needs and work with them for the right text and translation.
