History of the Chuppah
Marriage under the chuppah is a beautiful tradition that has evolved through the ages. In Talmudic times the groom’s father provided the chuppah, or marriage tent, for the wedding ceremony and consummation afterward. By the 16th century the chuppah had evolved into 4 handheld branches. When a child was born, the family planted a tree, and its branches would be used years later for chuppah poles. The canopy was made from a garment, usually a tallis or a veil.
Today, a chuppah is a fabric canopy attached to a four post temporary structure. It symbolizes the home a couple will create together. It should be open on all sides to symbolize a welcome home. Customarily, the canopy is beautiful yet modest, and may be any style, size, design or material a couple desires.
Andrea Cohen, Owner and Designer
From the Artist:
The chuppah is an incredible symbol, and I love exploring its design potential. In all of my work I strive for the perfect marriage of form and content.
In 2010, when my only sister got engaged, I offered to make her chuppah for her July 4th wedding in Sonoma. I wanted the design to nod toward tradition while creating a contemporary look that fit her sweet and sophisticated sense of style. Friends and family responded to the chuppah with such enthusiasm and delight, I was inspired to start Chuppah Studio. Since then, I have been making chuppahs for friends, family and design-savvy brides-and-grooms-to-be. I feel very grateful to be able to add meaning and beauty to so many joyous and love-filled occasions.
In addition to my work with Chuppah Studio, I am also a contemporary sculptor and assistant professor at Parsons School of Design in New York City. I received my MFA in sculpture from Tyler School of Art, and my sculptures have been included in major gallery and museum exhibitions including the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden (Washington, DC), Sculpture Center (New York), and numerous contemporary art galleries across the country. My artwork has been featured and reviewed in Art Review, The Washington Post, The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, ArtNews, and Sculpture Magazine, among many others.
