I love this time of year, as engagements abound and people start planning for their weddings. I've been hard at work creating new chuppah designs for this season, and I'm excited to share them with you here.
This chuppah is inspired by William Meredith's touching poem "Tree Marriage." "I would like tree-siblings for us, standing together somewhere, two trees married with us, lightly, their fingers barely touching in sleep, our threads invisible but holding." There is an indigo background, a vivid painted tree and a quiet moon shining above.

This beautiful chuppah is inspired by the seven times a couple encircles each other in a Jewish wedding. Stand beneath achuppah painted with soft blues and purples, and spread with the seven circles that represent your commitment to each other.

This chuppah is inspired by the Jewish symbolism of an etz chayim (tree of life) and by Marge Piercy's poem about connections. "Weave real connections, create real nodes, build real houses. Live a life you can endure: Make love that is loving. Keep tangling and interweaving and taking more in, a thicket and bramble wilderness to the outside but to us interconnected with rabbit runs and burrows and lairs."
