Last month, I had the honor of being one of the vendors who participated in the 2nd, Los Angeles, Big Fake Wedding (formerly known as The Not Wedding) – and it was AMAZING. The entire bridal party happened to be my wonderful family, the bride and groom are my brother-in-law and sister-in-law and their attendants were our cousins… and we had a blast! I’ll be sharing the entire event on Monday of next week so make sure to stop by and check out.
Today I’m sharing one of the elements that I contributed to the event, the tree planting ceremony. Most “unity ceremonies” embody blending two into one, using a physical act to symbolize the promises that you are making. In thinking about marriage and how things change overtime, I felt the message with this unity ceremony idea should be that you are “vowing to grow together”. Everyone changes, and a goal within any marriage should be that as each person changes or grows – you do so together and not separately. Making this little planting act the perfect way to embrace growth as Mr & Mrs. So go buy a plant, be it a pretty fern like this one, or a succulent, or even a tree and “plant” it together during your ceremony… like we did!
