To create the Ketuba, Leon sat down with Becca and Jake and talked with them about their life together. They reminisced, thought about what is important to them, and looked back at old photos. Armed with this collection of memories, Leon headed to his studio, and began to draw. Two months later, the Ketubah was complete and ready to become part of Jake and Becca’s wedding and future life together.
為了創作婚約(Ketuba),Leon與貝卡和傑克一起回顧他們的生活。 他們回憶過去,思考什麼對他們很重要,然後回顧舊照。 帶著這些回憶,Leon到自己的工作室,開始繪畫。 兩個月後,婚約(Ketubah)完工了,準備成為傑克和貝卡的婚禮和未來生活的一部分
