Dixon’s Apple Orchard in Cornell held its second annual event of hosting couples who were married on the site to return them to their roots.
During the event, 21 couples picked up shovels and planted an apple tree to symbolize their roots as a couple and the tradition of love growing at the orchard.
Those who were invited back to the orchard were taken to the orchard by wagon and, after planting, placed memory placards on their tree.
The orchard began long ago in New Mexico with co-owner Becky Mullane’s grandfather. There they survived two natural disasters and even after wildfires and flooding, they saved enough of their one-of-a-kind Champagne apple trees to Wisconsin.
Those who get married at the orchard get to select from the orchard itself, the towering trees in the woodland known as the cathedral or the island in the middle of the pond.
