Tree Planting Ceremony

I believe couples are often looking for a way to add something to their wedding that is special and unique. They do not want to just have the cookie-cutter ceremony.  I love the Tree Planting Ceremony so have added some wording the officiant could use if you would like to include in your day.

Officiant: Bride and Groom will now take part in a Tree Planting Ceremony, to symbolize the roots of their relationship, and thecontinuedgrowth of their love, as they become each other's family today.

Love is the essence of human experience and emotion. It is the root of all and everything we, as humans, do. Love richens our experience, and fills our lives with meaning. It gives us afirmbase from which to grow, to learn, and change.Let your relationship and your love for each other be like this tree you plant today. Let it grow tall and strong. Let it stand tall during the harsh winds and rains and storms, and come through unscathed. Like a tree, your marriage must be resilient. It must weather the challenges of daily life and the passage of time. And just like the tree you are planting, marriage requires constant nurturing and nourishment.


Bride and Groom, would you please water the sapling?

Officiant: Remember to nourish each other, with words of encouragement, trust, and love. This is needed on a daily basis so you each can grow and reach your fullest potential - just like this tree.The Bride and Groom will plant this tree in their backyard to always be a symbol of their love for each other.
