On second thought, he decided to keep the ring.

With the slightly sinister look he’s giving the ring, I assume it’s the one ring to rule them all. I’m just thinking that this is some sort of Lord of the Rings/Book of Genesis fanfic crossover.
Yes, but why is the apple the only thing in color?
It is a tradition in Eastern European countries to present the engagement ring inside of an apple.
Can we say Eve?
That dude is HUGE!!!
I’m with Anna.
Mmmm, delicious apple, why get married when you can have this delicious apple instead?! Ssssss.
I’ve just been to an ‘alternative’ wedding with the couple presenting each other with wedding rings and an apple, as a symbol of enduring love and abundance… Or so the ‘alternative’ minister said. Couple is from the UK.
Is that why Gwyneth Paltrow named her daughter Apple?
Ok, this may be too far, but shouldn’t she be holding a cherry, not an apple?
My first thought: “And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat. “
The only thing missing is the serpent……
The serpent is such a phallic symbol it’s hilarious!
The bride looks like one of the ladies from despret housewifes !
Here Adam, take a bite,…it won’t hurt a bit!
So THAT’S where they got the idea for the cover of the “Twilight’ books.
His tie is on backwards
OMG! Is it on backwards, or just a little tiny baby tie tucked into a grown up one?
I taught English in Poland – Bialystok. I believe this couple is Polish – I base that upon the name in the picture. I had a student tell me that she hoped I found “my apple” in Poland…meaning, she hoped I found my love – the apple of my eye – in Poland. That is an expression there. I think that is what the Apple represents in this picture.
the apple represents the original sin. the apple of eden. it’s a symbol of a woman giving herself to a man. the ring says- “i own you”. isn’t polish culture great.
BWA HA HA HA!
Nowhere in the bible does it state that Eve ate an apple. It says she ate the forbidden fruit. It could’ve been a mango or banana for all we know.
actually i believe this is just stephanie meyer’s rabid fans gone mad with vampire obsession. he is obviously brooding and she looks oblivious and awkwardly giddy!
Isn’t there some sort of apple symbolism in “Twilight”? Maybe because you bite apples like vampires bite necks? Nobody could know LESS about “Twilight” than I do.
You’re a little off. She was probably refering to your other ‘half of an apple’ (which is an expression in Polish, there is no ‘apple of my eye’ expression in Polish) and I think the symbolism on this picture is about them becoming 1. You know, 2 halves of an apple… A little risky with the girl holding the apple, it could totally mean the original sin haha.
I am from Poland and I confirm what you’ve written. It may be about two halves of an apple, at least I can’t think of anything else to explain this But on the other hand, shouldn’t they cut the apple in half to make the idea more clear?
It may actually be connected with original sin, though shouldn’t they be naked?
Who knows what they had in mind:D
