Mary + Nathan’s Beautiful Papercut Ketubah

I featured this beautiful Jewish wedding on my DC-area wedding blog, United With Love, last week.  The couple, Mary and Nathan, had a stunning papercut ketubah (Jewish marriage contract) and I couldn’t resist sharing this particular detail here on OSBP.  The design is relatively simple – just white paper and digital calligraphy with the laser cut details, but I actually prefer a simple white ketubah to some of the more colorful options.

I asked Mary and Nathan where they found the ketubah and was expecting to hear that they had worked with a local artist, but it turns out they found it online.  This particular ketubah is called Winter by Ruth Stern Warzecha, but you can check out some of the other designs right here.

Folk Art Cards and Artwork from Urubbu

We often see pretty birds in our Capitol Hill neighborhood; my husband can recognize almost all of them, but the only one I can name by sight is the cardinal.  Yesterday I spotted a pretty little house finch walking home from the grocery store and it reminded me of the beautiful folk-inspired prints and cards from Urubbu.  I first discovered Urubbu at last year’s National Stationery Show and have been a fan ever since.  I love all of the flora and fauna-inspired designs!

{happy weekend!}

Happy Friday everyone!  Do you have something fun planned for the weekend?  Tomorrow I’m helping a wedding planner friend with a wedding in Virginia and I’m a wee bit nervous.  Hopefully it will be a fun day, but it’ll definitely be interesting!  Can you believe this is the last weekend of June?  This summer is just flying by!  But in the meantime…

Rosemary + Lavender

It’s been a bright and colorful week, so I thought I would help end the week on a more subdued note.  These rosemary and lavender invitations from Satsuma Press combine two of my favorite herbs (and scents!) in one gorgeous wedding invitation suite.  Ah, rosemary and lavender – a soothing combination even through the computer screen…
