“Pat Werk recently married my husband and me. It was the 4th of July and a last-minute wedding by most planning standards. I connected with Pat on a level where I would consider her family. She made sure my partner and I were heard and fully understood for one of the most important days of our lives. She created a personalized ceremony we will forever cherish in our hearts. Even when it rained during our ceremony, Pat was quick to come to a solution that still led us to a happy and beauti […]
“Looking for a unique and memorable ceremony that will truly be your own? Look no further! We highly recommend Pat Werk as a wedding officiant. She prides herself in providing a ceremony that is personalized to the couple. You get to choose so much of what will be said and done. Our special moment featured a knot tying ritual which embodied our passion of the outdoors and rock climbing. Pat was excited to help us make that possible! She was so kind in preparing a personalized ceremony tha […]
“We found Koru Ceremony on The Knot and the reviews on this officiant service were spot on. We had the pleasure of working with Pat. She gave us exactly what we were looking for—something simple, yet meaningful. We met with Pat a couple of times via Zoom and she really puts her entire being into planning your perfect ceremony. Pat has been an amazing resource…everything from obtaining a marriage license to name change…Pat is an expert! We can’t say enough good th […]

Here is a review that Savannah posted on Wedding Wire, The Knot, and Google Business: “Pat was truly outstanding to work with! She took time and care to get to understand us, what was important in our relationship and what we wanted our wedding ceremony to look and feel like. The result was truly the […]
“Pat was fantastic! We had a pretty general idea of what we wanted for our Wedding ceremony, but the guidance and assistance we received along the way were so valuable to helping us really put together the perfect ceremony, just like we wanted it to be. It was obvious to us, as the planning stages unfolded, that Pat and the Koru process would be suitable for many different types of couples, whether religious or not or spiritual in their own way or not, with the freedom to “pick and choose […]
I received a really sweet thank you note from Katie and David: “Dear Pat- We will forever be grateful to you had the opportunity to get to know you. You graced us with your comfort, confidence, and overall warmth, which allowed us the space to breathe and take in every moment. You are a very […]
”Pat Werk was our officiant for our wedding ceremony last week. We met via zoom, which was very convenient for us, to plan and organize our ceremony. During our meetings, working with Pat was simple, wonderful, and informative. We chose to have Pat share our love story during our ceremony since we met during Covid. Some of our extended family and friends didn’t know our whole story! I can’t count how many people came up to us during our reception and asked if Pat was a […]
UPDATE: Here is a review Becky posted on social media about Koru: “Pat was absolutely wonderful to work with for our wedding! Our ceremony was perfect, and the process of putting it together was a breeze with her help. One compliment we received the most throughout our wedding day was about how beautiful and romantic […]
Thank you, Jenny and Nate, for this wonderful review written for me. It was an honor to be your officiant at your 4/30/22 wedding ceremony held at the beautiful venue, The Bog. I wish you both many years of happiness. “We went with Koru Ceremony to officiate our wedding and it was such an amazing choice. […]
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.
