A Review by Samantha and Tanner

Filed in Review, Wedding — September 2, 2019

A review written by Samantha on Wedding Wire and The Knot:

Pat Werk made my wedding dreams come true. I had never been to a nonreligious wedding before and was doubtful that I would be able to have a ceremony that fit our relationship. Pat came to us with so many ideas to personalize every line of our ceremony. We wanted to include our daughter by presenting her a necklace and Pat fit it in perfectly. I never felt unheard or like a burden when communicating with Pat before and during our wedding.  I am so thankful to her and she will always hold a special place in our wedding memories.

In an email Samantha wrote:

We both want to thank you very much for marrying us and officiating such a beautiful ceremony. I received many compliments, even from a few of my very religious family members. With it being so unconventional, I wasn’t expecting such wonderful reactions.  Thank you again!
Samantha and Tanner, married on August 3, 2019 at The Creamery 201, Fort Atkinson, WI

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.
