You could just see the hours of handwork put into Tricia and Courtney’s ceremony covering. Their fathers had spent, I’m sure, many days perfecting the corn husk, berry, and birch pole covering. Under that very ceremony covering, they exchanged rings and got legally married! A big ol’ CT marriage certificate was theirs to take back to CA with them. But they gave back to CT as well. A brand new baby tree was planted, watered and covered to bring new life to the backyard where Courtney grew up. I had heard of tree plantings for earth day and such, but it was nice to see two brides sprinkling dirt and water- just excited to see what their tree would look like in less than a year. Or 10. Or 90.
