“Life without love is like a tree without blossoms or fruit.”
The first time Kim and I spoke about her wedding, I asked her where it would take place. It was a no-brainer — in her parents’ backyard. She said she couldn’t imagine getting married anywhere else. With three siblings and a large extended family, her parents’ home has always been a place where family and friends gather, for holidays and birthdays, on the weekends and after church on Sundays.
When Kim was a little girl, her family planted a bottlebrush tree in the backyard. As she and her siblings grew up, so did the tree, eventually surpassing them all. It stands in the backyard as a symbol of their family, love, dedication, endurance. It was only natural that Kim+Travis would exchange their vows underneath it, with its beautiful blooms providing a beautiful backdrop.
Kim+Travis, may your love and life together, like the tree, develop strong roots, weather every storm, endure the test of time and continue to blossom with each new season.
