Heather and Skyler

Filed in Wedding — August 5, 2022

I adore every couple I have the honor of marrying, but sometimes I get the opportunity to marry someone I have known for years. Skyler is one of those kids I watched growing up in our small town of Deerfield. Our families have been friends for years, and I was the long-term substitute teacher for his mom, Jennie’s 4th-grade class when Skyler was born. So I was flattered when Skyler and Heather asked me to officiate their ceremony at Harvest Moon Pond.  

Skyler and Heather love rock climbing, so it was fun to create a “tying the knot” ritual using two pieces of climbing ropes. Climbing together tells a lot about a relationship. It requires trust, communication, and teamwork, all skills you need in climbing and in marriage. I’m confident this delightful couple has what it takes to have a healthy and happy marriage, wishing them all the best in the years to come as husband and wife. Mazel tov!

What does Koru mean?

KORU (kor-roo) is the Maori word for “loop.” For the indigenous people of New Zealand, the koru spiral represents a fern frond beginning to unfurl. The koru symbol embodies new beginnings, a new phase of life, renewal, hope for the future, positive change, personal growth, working in harmony, bringing people together, and being mindful of the good things in life.

At Koru Ceremony, we strive to personify these ideals and celebrate a new beginning through ceremony and ritual.
