Jennifer and Doron's monogram

Jennifer was looking for a unique monogram to place on the front cover of the benchers that will be used at her wedding. Benchers are booklets containing the many Jewish blessings, prayers, and songs that are sung at a Jewish wedding. I was excited to use an existing monogram, Vanessa, and tailor it to Jennifer and Doron's wishes. Their new last initial, K, is flanked by the first initial of each of their Hebrew names. The shin, which is the first letter in Jennifer's Hebrew name Shaindl, is in the lower left, and the dalet, for Doron (which means "present, gift, or offering") is in the upper right.
