Dana and Chad were such a fantastic couple to work with. Sharing their funny, sweet, and endearing love story with their guests was so much fun. I always say, if there is laughter and tears during the ceremony, the guests think it is the best ceremony they have ever been to because they too are […]
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 […]
What do you do when it begins to rain in the middle of the wedding? To finish the ceremony, you invite 200 guests to join you under the two massive willow trees. It created an intimate, bonding experience for everyone, and I’m sure Cassie and Austin’s guests will talk about their wedding in the days, […]
Kaitlin and Drew’s wedding yesterday at The Ivy House in Milwaukee couldn’t have been more perfect. It was so much fun working with them to create a meaningful, one-of-a-kind ceremony. They have been together for 13 years, so I loved sharing their love story. Including their dog, Olive, in the procession as the flower girl and the […]
“Koru Ceremony and Pat Werk were spectacular to work with. Pat advised and guided us through the whole process while letting us make our own choices, kept in touch, and provided a very personal experience for us and all of our guests. We received several comments complimenting our wedding ceremony. I could not more strongly […]
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. […]
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 […]
“Our wedding was last weekend, and I can’t say enough great things about Pat. From our initial consultation through the final ceremony script, Pat was there through the whole process to answer questions, provide guidance and assistance, and create a ceremony that was unique and perfect for our wedding. Our parents have different religious […]
I LOVE these photos that Anya Kubilus Photography posted from Derek and Erika’s wedding we did together yesterday at the Goodman Center. What a delight it was to marry these two. Afterwards, Erica told me the ceremony was perfect and I couldn’t agree more. It was an honor to be there to celebrate with them, along with their […]
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.
