Real Weddings: Peter & Ari
It brings us pure joy to create a work of art that will play an integral role in a couple’s wedding and marriage, and every so often Team Ketubah comes across a couple that we truly bond with. We are beyond excited to share with you the fun details of their wedding and the story behind their happily-every-after — it touched our hearts deeply and we are positive it will do the same for you as well!
You truly never know where you'll find love -- for Peter and Ari it was at the gym. Fast-forward and next thing you know, Peter is telling us all about his completely romantic engagement (we LOVED it!):
Ari proposed to me with a fabulous platinum band (with diamond) at our favorite Italian restaurant on the upper west side of Manhattan on New Year's Eve. I said YES. and then we went to Central park to watch the fireworks and called our families.
Peter and Ari came to us wanting something completely and totally unique -- a commissioned Ketubah. Of all the Ketubahs we have the pleasure of making, Commissioned Ketubot are definitely our favorite. Not only do we get to work one-on-one with each couple to find out their interests and styles, but we get to create something that holds such an important meaning to them in so many ways. We ended up creating a gorgeous, one-of-a-kind design for Peter and Ari -- we loved it so much that we made The Lucky 99 Ketubah and added it to our collection, a design inspired by their Ketubah!
Their wedding looked and sounded absolutely stunning -- especially the reception. Peter told us all about the amazing music they had -- "a 15 piece orchestra all evening long..." As for their absolute favorite part of the wedding?
Our favorite part of the wedding was our ceremony - surrounded by family and friends, all candle lit, under Ari's family chuppah - a family heirloom was so moving, special and intimate.
With such a romantic proposal and gorgeous wedding, we weren't surprised to learn that they weren't going on just one honeymoon, but THREE! A trip to Mexico, Island hopping in the British Virgin Island, and Israel!
And as for their Ketubah?
Right now it's in our bedroom standing upright on the dresser - in sight everyday. We love it so much!
From Team Ketubah to Peter & Ari -- Mazel Tov on your big day! From the very beginning conversation to the final Ketubah, we loved working with both of you. We feel so honored that you let us create something so meaningful to play an integral role on your wedding day. We wish you both a lifetime of laughter, adventure, and love!
