Trees and Love have been Intertwined for Centuries

Written by Shayna Cogan, Pure Joy Catering

Trees are often seen as symbols of love and commitment, and they are often used in wedding ceremonies and as a backdrop for the most intimate moments. There are many reasons why trees are associated with love.

First, trees are long-lived, and they can provide a sense of stability and permanence in a relationship. Trees also provide shade and shelter, which can be seen as a metaphor for the protection and comfort that a loving relationship can provide. Additionally, trees are often seen as symbols of growth and renewal, which can be seen as a reflection of the way that love can help two people grow together. Finally, trees are often seen as symbols of connection to the natural world, which can be seen as a reminder of the importance of nature in our lives and in our relationships.

Here are some ways to incorporate trees into your wedding:

  • Trees as a backdrop. Trees can be used to create a beautiful backdrop for your wedding ceremony or reception. You can use them to frame the aisle, create a canopy over your head, or simply use them as a natural setting for your photos.
  • Trees as a centerpiece. Trees can also be used as a centerpiece for your wedding tables. You can use fresh flowers, candles, or even small gifts to decorate the tree.
  • Trees as a symbol of love. Trees can be used as a symbol of love in your wedding ceremony. You can plant a tree together as a symbol of your commitment to each other. You can also write your vows around a tree or have your officiant stand under a tree as you exchange vows.
  • Trees as a symbol of growth. Trees can be used as a symbol of growth in your wedding ceremony. You can have your officiant talk about the way that trees grow and change over time, and how your love will grow and change over time. You can also have your guests write their hopes and dreams for your future on leaves and attach them to the tree.
  • Trees as a symbol of new beginnings. Trees can be used as a symbol of new beginnings in your wedding ceremony. You can have your officiant talk about the way that trees start out as small seeds and grow into strong and sturdy trees. You can also have your guests write their hopes and dreams for your future on leaves and attach them to the tree.

Trees are a wonderful reminder of the power of love. They can provide us with strength, support, and comfort. They can also teach us about the importance of patience, growth, and renewal. No matter how you choose to incorporate trees into your wedding, they are sure to add a touch of beauty and meaning to your special day.
