Richard Torres wanted to draw attention to environmental issues by marrying said tree. So he dressed up like Fancy Johnny Depp and had a full-blown ceremony to make some sort of point.
He placed symbolic offerings at the bottom of the tree before saying his vows and switching rings.
He even gave the tree a kiss, and a lick. A crowd of onlookers cheered him on.
We wish Torres and the tree every happiness as they em-bark on their life together. May this new branch of their life be fruitful, may they never be stumped for ways to show they care, and may they continue pining for each other for the rest of their days. And when things get tough, don’t leave, don’t be a sassafras, don’t willow, and just find new ways spruce things up.
Mazel tov, you guys![via My Fox Philly]
