We are delighted, humbled, and utterly surprised to announce Koru Ceremony won the BEST OFFICIANT award at the WI Bride Best of 2022 Awards Ceremony last night in Milwaukee at St. James 1868.

Peter Leidy, Sarah Harrison, and I always have a good time hanging out together, whether we win or are a finalist. I also want to acknowledge my other Koru officiants, Rachel Tatge and Connie Lambeth, who could not come to the event but cheered us on from afar.

I am so incredibly grateful for my officiants and the fantastic job they do working with our fabulous wedding couples. Koru would not receive the rave reviews couples have written about us online without the support, guidance, and care these four phenomenal officiants give to every wedding.

We also want to thank the wedding couples, vendors, family, and friends that voted for us. We couldn’t have won this award without your support for us and Koru Ceremony. And finally, I want to acknowledge my fellow finalists, Brad Schnell at I Do and the honorable Judge Derek Mosley. For the past six years, I Do and Koru have traded the title of Best Officiant back and forth. We have each won it three times, so we are both winners in my book.

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.
