Koru Ceremony Officiant: Marie Langeteig

Filed in About Koru Ceremony — June 4, 2015

One of the joys of Koru Ceremony is working with other officiants.  Marie Langeteig is a retired Commissioned Lay Pastor with a BA in Religious Studies from Edgewood College in Madison.  Marie says, “Through the years I have had the honor and pleasure of serving congregations, friends and family members in many types of religious and secular ceremonies.  What started, as a gift of service to friends and family, has become something I truly enjoy.  I feel it is my responsibility to provide a moving and spiritual experience that reflects the personalities of those with whom I work.  As an Ordained Minister of American Marriage Ministries, my goal is to get to know and respect the individual wishes of those who entrust one of their most important life moments to me.”

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.
