Melissa and Anan’s Outdoor Winter Wedding

Filed in Wedding — February 5, 2018

One of the most memorable weddings I had the delight of officiating this past December was for Melissa and Anan.  This was a small, intimate wedding with just family members attending because they were having a large wedding in India a couple of weeks later.  They picked Picnic Point on the UW campus as their ceremony site and made sure to provide a beautiful campfire, hot tea, and lap robes for their family members to keep warm during their sunrise ceremony.  It may be the only wedding where I wear 2 layers of long underwear because the temperature was in the teens with a dusting of snow on the ground on their wedding day. As usual, the amazing Laura Zastrow Photography did an outstanding job of capturing this triathlete loving couple’s wedding day.

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.
