Tree Planting Unity Ceremony

tree planting unity ceremony sitio weddings events

There are many ways to signify the unity of your marriage, but one of our favorites, here at Sitio, is a Tree Planting Unity Ceremony. Including a tree planting ceremony in your marriage has been around for centuries all over the world. This eco-friendly practice is a great way to see time pass and your relationship grow, just as your tree will.

“The symbolism behind the tree is simple and beautiful… It represents [a] relationship taking root, growing, and flourishing as [you] officially become a family.”

North Carolinian blogger, Hali Schaefer, of Dammit, Hali, who planted a dogwood tree at her wedding
