I just ate my first strawberry of the season. My first local strawberry. Oh, boy. I had to wait around, they had sold out and had to dash back to the field where the pickers were in full swing.
I’ve done several weddings around the summer solstice — which seems to be high tide in strawberry season just about anywhere in the northern hemisphere — where the bride and groom fed one another strawberries. (Peaches also work for this!) You need to be incredibly strategic with the napkin… no bride wants berry juice on her dress… But the symbol of life and sweetness overflowing are about as fabulous a symbol for a marriage overflowing with love as you could find.
Life is rich and we should call upon its richness and celebrate it in as many ways as we can!
You can do this too! Your love deserves nothing less!
Believing in you and your love,
