Kristen and Mitchell’s Union South Wedding

Filed in Wedding — September 21, 2016

I love these photos by Kathleen Stogin Photography.  I couldn’t have agreed more with what Kathleen wrote because I really adored Mitchell and Kristen:  

September 3, 2016. It doesn’t matter where you’re from. In the state of Wisconsin, everyone bleeds Badger red. A little known fact among many Bucky enthusiasts, however, is that the University of Wisconsin-Madison Union is actually a beautiful place for a wedding. A little known fact among many wedding photographers, as well, is that it’s also a gorgeous place for photography. This UW Madison Union wedding is flooded with big windows, natural light, and strong Wisconsin spirit. I met with Kristen & Mitchell back in early 2015, and I could tell they were going to be a joy to work with right away. Having been high school sweethearts, these two have a long, strong history together. There isn’t much that 9 years of dating leaves out. It was so incredible to watch two best friends declare their love & commitment to each other — not as a new adventure, but as two who know & love each other deeply. Their love & commitment to each other is easy for all to see, and think it’s fair to say that everyone walked away touched & inspired by their vows. These two, their family, and their friends, are all selfless, friendly, and a true joy to be around. The entire day at this UW Madison Union Wedding was a lighthearted celebration. It’s weddings like these that remind me why I love my job so much. Also. I know you’re wondering, and the answer is yes; the Badgers took out LSU for the win to make the day complete.

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.
