A couple introduced me to this meaningful ritual. Maybe you would like to include it in your wedding planning.
______ and ________ will now take part in a tree planning ceremony to symbolize the roots of their relationship and the continued growth of their love, as they become one today.
Love is the essence of human experience and emotion. It is the rot of all and in everything that we do. Love richens our experience and fills our lives with meaning. It gives us a firm base from which to grow, to learn and change. let your relationship and your love for each other be like this tree that you plant today. Let it grow tall and strong. Let it stand sturdy during the harsh winds and rains and storms. May you like the tree, come through unscathed. Like a tree your marriage must be resilient It must weather the challenges of daily life and passage of time. And just like the tree that you are planting, marriage requires constant nurturing. As they provide the sun, soil and water for this tree, they wil provide the encouragement, trust and love needed to consciously nurture their connection to one another. Today ________ and ___________ will unite their families. As they pur the soil from their childhood homes, they combine two families into one. The two trees represent themselves – two separate people with roots now beginning to grow together.
