A Sylvan Lake business is the recipient of a prestigious wedding industry award. Crystal Orchid Weddings and Events was named the 2015 WeddingWire Couples’ Choice Award winner for Wedding and Event planning.

The Couples’ Choice Awards are presented annually to wedding industry professionals who exemplify professionalism, quality and service. Winners are chosen based on customer reviews, which, according to Crystal Orchid owner and lead operator Lori Angebrandt-Bertamini, makes the awards all the more special.

“We have had the very great pleasure of working with some of the most wonderful couples and corporate clients over the last year,” she said. “To win an award that is based upon what our clients say about us is such an amazing reward for the efforts and long days we put in. For us to know that what we do and how we do it has meaning and is appreciated by our clients is hugely gratifying to us.”

Crystal Orchid was one of 15 Alberta businesses that received honours in the Wedding Planning category.

WeddingWire is the largest wedding review website in the world, with business through it having received more than two million reviews in total.
