Chloe and Mike are a perfect match! Their close family friend thought so too, and while hesitant at first, they agreed to be set up on a blind date in New York City. Right away they hit it off, and 3 years later, they got married at Belmond El Encanto in Santa Barbara, California.
While Chloe and I are both Los Angeles natives, we didn’t meet until studying together at Michigan’s art school. We were sorority sisters, art school cubicle buddies, and travel partners. It was so much fun designing Chloe and Mike’s Ketubah and incorporating the beauty of their wedding site into their final design. I felt extra honored to be such an integral part in the celebration, as a bridesmaid and Ketubah signer.
I designed Chloe and Mike’s Ketubah based off images they sent me of their ceremony site and the color scheme of their wedding. They wanted a circular Ketubah that showcased the brick pillars and lily pond of their Santa Barbara wedding venue. Their wedding colors were blue and grey. Thus, their Ketubah features the lily pond below their text, with the brick pillars extending from the pond and curving to form the foundation of the circular image. The Ketubah is tied together with blue and grey arches.
