Unity Tree?

"I really think that this plant is really important. It does need to survive, if this is like your unity plant. I mean, it's not a good sign if it dies really soon. So you'd better water it."
-Erin Paine

When it comes to the unity ceremony at a wedding, there are a lot of options. You can light a candle, pour sand, tie a braid or knot, take Communion, wash each other's feet...and the list goes on. During their wedding, Carlin and Evan chose to plant a tree (video below).

  1. We had communion and lit a unity candle at our wedding. I've only been to a Biblical foot washing ceremony once and believe me it was very humbling. I haven't been to a wedding yet where the couple incorporated foot washing in their wedding.
    Planting a tree is different but I like the idea.

  4. I don't think that is a tree. Looks like a rose bush to me.

  5. It's strange the way Erin looks happy and well-rested and Chad looks so thin and exhausted. Does she notice this?

    1. Chad looks unwell. Maybe Erin should let him rest! I'm sure he'd like a break from the babymaking, too.

    2. Look at the most recent pictures from Holland's birth. He looks fine there.
