We are here, in this beautiful place, to celebrate this beautiful occasion, as Bride and Groom vow to spend the rest of their lives together. The reading of the poem, Thoughts In a Garden, is very appropriate today, not only because we are in a thriving garden, but because of how it compares gardens to relationships and the differents phases we go through. Son and Daughter, you are 1 ½ years into your marriage, starting your garden, showing us the hope we all have for lasting love and beauty. Mother and Father, after 58 years of marriage you show us that lasting love in deep, rich evergreens. Bride and Groom, you show us the changing seasons and the necessary work. Pruning encourages growth and after the dormancy of winter, there is always a vibrant spring, in all its glory.
