Real Weddings: Sarah & Jesse Thomas

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!
Not only was working with Sarah and Jesse on their Ketubah an absolute pleasure, but their beautiful love story and happily every after is like something out of a dream! With Sarah working for the U.S. Department of State and Jesse at the Canadian Embassy, we were begging to know -- how did they both meet?!
My good Canadian friend, who I went to graduate school at Syracuse University, invited me to an event at the Embassy. At the event, she introduced us, and the rest is history...
Sarah spilled to us how much they love taking walks around Washington D.C., so it was no surprise that Jesse planned a romantic proposal at a beautiful lookout spot in Georgetown...
Jesse popped the question when we stopped at Book Hill. I said yes, and following in the footsteps of my parents who have been married for over 35 years, we carved our initials in a tree on the hill.
Sarah went on to tell us about their big day...
Surrounded by our closest family and friends, we ate, drank, laughed, and danced the weekend away. We entered the reception dancing to Notorious BIG's "Hypnotize," and everyone, from the little ones to the grandparents, made their mark on the dance floor throughout the evening.
Their wedding sounded (and looked!) absolutely wonderful -- filled with excitement, warmth, and love. We absolutely adore how the Ketubah matched the overall ambiance of the wedding!

As if the proposal and wedding wasn't beautiful enough, they had just about the most exciting honeymoon EVER. Where did they adventure to? "We honeymooned in Spain and Portugal... The whole experience was amazing! The views at Montserrat were breathtaking and the paella was delicious!"
Their favorite moment from the honeymoon?
One morning... we woke up early and drove to Montserrat, a beautiful Benedictine monk mountain retreat about an hour from Barcelona. Instead of spending a whole day leisurely exploring the site, we hiked up to the Sant Jeroni summit of Montserrat as fast as we could, ran back down the mountain, and drove back to the small town near Barcelona we were staying in, so we could enjoy the special of the day -- paella -- by 2:00 pm at a local mom-and-pop restaurant that we first visited for delicious tapas upon arriving in Spain.
We couldn't think of a better experience to mark the beginning of a Happily Ever After! From our Team at TINAK HQ to Sarah and Jesse -- we wish you both a lifetime of happiness. We were so honored to create something so meaningful for your special day. We hope every time you look at your Ketubah it fills you with excitement, warmth, and most importantly, love.
