Bride and Groom, with their children, will be planting this tree at their home, signifying the joining of their 6 lives together, the commitment that they made to one another, and the strength and nurturing each will provide to the relationship as they grow and mature together.

As we contemplate on how a tree changes and adapts through all seasons in order to continue to thrive and grow, we can see how this applies to a marriage as well. Bride and Groom, a faithful marriage endures the change of seasons, responding to the trials in darkness with trust and assurance in knowing that a new season is coming, where growth and fruitfulness rejoice in the light.
