What I want to draw your attention to now is this plant. Bride and Groom and their mother’s now of are going to add soil to the pot. There is great meaning behind this. Their mothers are where it all began. They gave birth to them and raised them. Essentially, their mothers loved them and taught them how to love and helped to give them the foundation, or the fertile soil, of who they are today. All of you here, family and friends, also helped to make them who they are. Now, through marriage, we are joining your two families together and all that has gone before now blends here towards your becoming. This tree is a symbol of their new life, and how they will grow for years to come based in their fertile foundation of love.
