My husband and I got married in January. We value tradition, and knew that we wanted to be married under a chuppah, but wanted to make sure that our wedding ceremony really represented who are as a couple. As we began our chuppah research, we found many different options. In the end, Artisan Chuppah was the best choice for us. We customized the chuppah with a fabric that brought a touch of Spring to our Winter wedding. Working with Roy was a delight. He made sure that everything arrived in time for us to practice the set up (which was remarkably easy—with very clear directions) and even followed up with us after the ceremony. If you are looking for something unique to bring to the traditional, Artisan Chuppah is the best choice!

  For the non-Jews and otherwise uniformed out there (myself included), some important points about the purpose of the chuppah in a traditional Jewish wedding: 'A chuppah (Hebrew: חוּפָּה‎, pl. חוּפּוֹת, chuppot, literally, "canopy" or "covering"), also huppah, chupah, or chuppa, is a canopy under which a Jewish couple stand during their wedding ceremony. A chuppah symbolizes the home that the couple will build together' (wikipedia)

ArtisanChuppah worked closely with us on all facets of design and assembly of our 'home'. Paradoxically, the result was closer to a true work of architecture rather than a symbol of it, as it met the three essential criteria that a work of architecture demands: (1) structural integrity, (2) function and economy, and lastly, (3) symbolic or aesthetic resonance.

On the first, the solid frame, sturdy base and canopy withstood the gale-force winds (literally) of a September day on the beach in Montauk, L.I. Umbrellas and beach chairs were airborne - the Chuppah was a rock. On the second, the Chuppah managed to accomodate the complex correography of an inter-faith ceremony, where Priest, Rabbi - and even a Kuwati bearing wine - shared space with Bride, Groom, Maid of Honor and Best Man. On the third, the striking formal simplicity and geometry of the frame and plywood base created an abstract representation of an ideal 'house', against which the canvas 'roof' was memorably off-set.

Our wedding was in 2004, and we still get comments from friends and relatives about the ceremony, which few can forget. This, more than anything else, testifies to the key role the Chuppah played in creating lasting memories for us and our families.
