Real Weddings: Anna & Andrew Gibson
It brings us pure joy to create a work of art that will play an integral role in a couple’s wedding and marriage, and every so often Team Ketubah comes across a couple that we truly bond with. We are beyond excited to share with you the fun details of their wedding and the story behind their happily-every-after — it touched our hearts deeply and we are positive it will do the same for you as well!
To sum up the beautiful love story between Anna and Andrew Gibson, Anna sent us this awesome video of their proposal (in Tel-Aviv!!!):
So just how did this completely adorable (and PERFECT) couple meet each other?
We actually met on Match.com and cancelled our accounts after two weeks, I was Andy’s first and only date he ever had from match, that was a 2nd date for me.
Awwwww! We love that! Anna continued on to tell us that Andrew proposed in Tel-Aviv after asking permission from her parents — her best friend and sister were with them too! It’s not often couples will actually send us video of their proposals, so we couldn’t have been more ecstatic to feature Anna and Andrew on our “Real Weddings” section. They were such a fun couple to work with, and ended up picking one of Team Ketubah’s favorite designs — The Ani L’Dodi Vibrant Mosaic Ketubah. Which we thought would look particularly stunning with their AMAZING multi-cultural themed wedding:
We combined Jewish and Scottish traditions and created our ceremony. We have a Houpa that was custom made by my sister. It has Celtic love knot, Hebrew writing and of course both Lions! The Scottish rampant lion and Jerusalem lion. We had quartets that sang both Hebrew and Scottish songs, and of course we had a piper! Our favors were a mini bottle of Scotch (for Scotland) and a jar of honey (for Israel). We loved every minute of it.
Amazing! And just for fun we wanted to know — what’s the MOST ridiculous thing they’ve ever done together as a couple? Anna gushed, “Oh we have lots of those! But the best one was jumping into freezing water in Feb for charity, we were both dressed as bride and groom”.
As we said before — Anna and Andrew were such a pleasure to work with. Between there adorable love story to all the fun details of their wedding, we couldn’t have been more excited to play a role in their big day. We wish you both a lifetime of love, adventure, and happiness!
