The Grapevine Wedding Chuppah
The image of the vine has traditionally appeared throughout the ages along with the biblical verse "…your wife shall be as a fruitful vine in the innermost parts of your house."
Grapes are also a symbol of harvest. In the fall harvest was a time of celebration and joy.
Grapevine Wedding Ketubah
Hand painted on fine watercolor paper, this wedding Ketubah in the Biblical Flowers theme comes in two formats, traditional and egalitarian. It measures 11" x 12" and comes with a booklet explaining each biblical reference.
The text has been inscribed by award-winning calligrapher Julie Staller-Pentelnik.
The Renaissance Wedding Banner
A spirited and original way to bring a unique and personal note to the beginning of your wedding ceremony. The banner is hand painted with the Grapevine theme. It can be personalized with names and dates along with a quote from The Song of Songs; "I am my beloved's and my beloved is mine." It comes complete with its own banner-pole, and gives a child who is too old to be a ring bearer or a flower girl a special place during the ceremony as he or she carries it down the aisle. It is also becomes a stunning wall display after the ceremony.
Wedding Guest List
A beautiful hand painted document with the Grapevine theme for all your guests to sign. Unlike a bulky wedding guest book, it can be mounted and framed. The basic size is inscribed with your names and date, provides room for 100 signatures, and can be custom-sized to your wedding guest list.
In traditional weddings, a tallit has often been used for the chuppah. The hand painted tallit created at the Artist's Studio is oversized and particularly well-suited as a chuppah. All ranges of colors can be chosen, and in one wedding flowers and vines were used instead of stripes. One tallit featured painted rainbows and clouds because the couple became engaged in a hot air balloon.
In the Sephardic tradition, the tallit is wrapped around the bride and groom during the ceremony, a beautiful practice which many modern couples are adopting. The tallit can also be worked to coordinate with the chuppah's colors and symbols.
The Artist's Studio has also made smaller examples for B'nai Mitzvot, and young boys and girls are excited to have some design input that makes their ceremonies much more personal.
