FORT MYERS, FL (WINK/CNN) – A Florida woman has pledged “‘til death do us part” to a 100-year-old tree that the city was thinking about cutting down in order to protest the move.

Despite the cake and flowers, Karen Cooper’s wedding was more than your average affair.

“I told other people if they cut this tree down, I’m going to be a widow,” the bride said.

Cooper held a ceremony Saturday to marry a 100-year-old Ficus tree in Snell Family Park in Fort Myers, FL. Last year, the city began discussing cutting the tree down to make way for a new home to be built on the land.
