The Creatures' Choir
The sun, the sea, the waves, the wind, all of these make for a dramatic and refreshing affair. But the starfish is something more specific.
Since time began, we humans have seen certain qualities in starfish. After all, they're democratic creatures, with all those arms that work together. They're romantic — the French call them "stars of the sea." And by legend, starfish are the ocean floor reflections of the starry sky.
Starfish are one of the most fitting of all symbols for marriage, with their regenerative powers and their promise of both the bitter and the sweet to come, starfish remind us that obstacles surely lie ahead, but that through them, we'll experience one or more rebirths. They are vulnerable in a way that seems downright human, with their tendency to get stranded on the shore and their occasional need for rescue by what seems like a higher power.
