Introducing the Star Map Ketubah
I like to think of myself as someone with an eye for illustration. After all, I’ve been in the business for more than a handful of years. But want to know a secret? Some of the best ideas come directly from a creative client.
I was approached a few months ago by a lovely couple who wanted a custom design of their wedding venue – a beautiful pine forest – with the night sky stretching out above it. And then they asked me if there was any possibility of making the night sky look just like it would on the very evening of their wedding.
Well friends, I immediately fell head over heels in love with their idea. It was definitely a challenge to figure out exactly how the night sky would look on their wedding date. Luckily there are a crazy number of resources for astronomy lovers, and they led me in the right direction. And now, I have a tried and true method for creating a skyscape of a specific date.
I was so excited about the idea, that I decided to create my first semi-custom ketubah design. It’s called the Star Map Ketubah. This design allows you to pick the horizon line (there are 18 to choose from!) and the date to be reflected in the stars and moon phase. And then, of course, you get to customize the texts, fonts, and signature lines as well.
I couldn’t be more excited to bring this new ketubah design to Ink with Intent. Let us know if you have any questions about it!
P.S. Here’s a little wedding mood board I created featuring the Star Map ketubah. If I were to get married all over again, I would totally have a Starry themed event. I can’t get enough of these deep moody blues with the gold sparkle!
