Sleepless in Seattle

Filed in Advice, Wedding — September 13, 2018

In the film “Sleepless in Seattle,” Tom Hanks plays a widowed man (Sam Baldwin) whose son calls a radio talk show (Dr. Marcia Fieldstone) in an attempt to find his dad a new wife.

Dr. Marcia Fieldstone: Tell me what was so special about your wife?

Sam Baldwin: It was a million tiny little things that, when you added them all up, they meant we were supposed to be together, and I knew it. I knew it the first time I touched her. It was like coming home, only to no home I’d ever known. I was just taking her hand to help her out of a car and I knew it. It was like magic.

His response gets at our motto of “small things often.”  On their own, a million tiny little things don’t seem that important, but when you add them all up, they make a big difference.

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.
