Guy and Deanna came all the way from St. Louis to get married at a rented farmhouseÂ in beautiful Craftsbury, Vermont. Â They had about 10 friends and family there with them, and we did the ceremony out underneath a couple of old apple trees called “The Married Couple” by the owners of the farmhouse.
At the end of the ceremony, Deanna and Guy handed out little books called Until Bananas Turn To Ink. Â It’s a love poem written by William M. Perry for his wife and runs along the lines of:
Until bananas turn to ink
I’ll keep you in my heart.
Till helium begins to sink
I’ll hope we never part.
Until pillows grow on trees
And the ocean turns to glue
And polar bears raise honeybees
I always will love you.
It’s very sweet and whimsical, and the entire assembled gang read it out loud, each person taking a line. Â It was a terrific moment of easy group participation, and highly recommended for anyone looking to get their wedding guests more involved in the ceremony.
