Tea Garden Custom Ketubah

Version I - Garden Nook

Tea Roses climb over this mosaic arch. At the center of the mosaic tiles are oak leaves, a symbol of strength and steadfastness. Romantic and serene, this design is meant to bring to mind a quiet corner in a garden with climbing roses and perhaps the sound of a fountain. The hand calligraphed interfaith custom text appears in alternating paragraphs.

Version II - Tea Garden

This couple liked the Garden Nook design so much that they wanted on just like it, except in English only.
