The ceremony is the heart of your wedding day. It is our desire to help you create a one-of-a-kind ceremony that is personalized and customized. You may be a couple that wants a traditional religious ceremony or a ceremony that has spiritual elements, but doesn’t conform to a specific faith or denomination. Perhaps you may want to create a ceremony that is non-religious. Your courtship story, your families, your level of religiosity, and cultural heritage are all elements that can be honored in your ceremony. Together we will create a personal wedding ceremony that is special, meaningful and distinctly you.

At Koru Ceremony we offer an extensive list of ceremony options that includes ceremonial text, romantic readings, scripture, music, and individualized plans for your processional and recessional. We can provide you with a list of vendors we have worked with, as well as information on how to acquire a Wisconsin marriage license, and much more.

As non-denominational ministers serving Madison, WI and South Central Wisconsin, we have officiated ceremonies in a number of beautiful locations: from churches to barns, back yards to the State Capitol. It would be our honor and privilege to officiate your marriage ceremony.

Pat Werk is an amazing and beautiful person. She made the process so easy, fun, and enjoyable. She had a plethora as very helpful resources for us to choose music, readings, ceremony styles, prayers and much more. She even helped us combine several verses to create the perfect match for us. We felt she really cared for us and for our day, and for a wonderful future. She added some very special touches as well. We would highly recommend her. We are blessed to have met Pat.

I could not be more impressed with Pat and Koru! Our wedding ceremony was everything we could hope for. It was completely customized to our taste and very heartfelt. Pat is extremely organized and made our big day so much easier. The rehearsal was great and everyone knew their roles, so we were all confident when it came to the actual ceremony. I highly recommend Koru to other couples looking for a wonderful officiant.

Aw...Thank you so much Shauna and Dan for writing such a nice review for me. You were a fantastic and super sweet couple to work with and I greatly appreciated how laid back and easy going you were when it came to planning the ceremony. I was honored to be a part of your special day and the Barn at Harvest Moon Pond looked fabulous on your wedding day.

My husband and I are so glad that we chose to work with Koru Ceremony to officiate our wedding. We worked with Rev. Amy Gile who was very professional and such a pleasure. It couldn't have gone any better. The best part about working with Koru for us was that we were able to customize our ceremony 100%.

This is the best decision we made when planning. Pat was wonderful to work with. She is very responsive and flexible. She gave us so many options for every aspect of our ceremony and then let us make changes as many times as we wanted until we had it just perfect for us. I had so many compliments on our ceremony and there were many tears - it was a perfect ceremony. You won't regret going with Koru!

Where do I begin; If there were more stars to give I would give them hands down. My wife and I were married on October 15th this year and I cannot say enough about Pat Werk and Koru Ceremony. Pat was beyond extraordinary! Pat made us feel like we were the first and only couple she was dealing with. She made us feel like we were part of her family and it felt like we had known Pat our entire lives. We were unsure of the kind of wedding ceremony we wanted because both my wife and I have different beliefs. Pat was able to create a ceremony after talking with us that fit my wife and I perfectly to the point where neither of us felt like we compromised. I truly cannot express how grateful we are to her. I don't know how she does it other than she is pure genius!

She incorporated everything we wanted and more. She also helped us with planning how the ceremony would go from the beginning to the end. The first night we met Pat we knew she was the one for us. She is very kind hearted, easy to talk to and laugh with. We don't consider this a business transaction; we consider Pat our friend. My wife and I would highly recommend anyone and everyone to use her for their ceremony. I would not look further than Pat ever again. She is very flexible and can make any wedding a success. Pat you are a true blessing and an incredible person. I cannot thank you enough for what you have done.

Dear Ben and Amy- I am blown away by your AMAZING and extremely kind review you wrote for me. I was deeply touched by your words. It may be one of the nicest reviews I've ever received!

I would recommend her to individuals of all religious backgrounds and levels of spirituality and even those with more secular views. She is respectful and kind and helps create a ceremony that you feel is truly representative of your beliefs and the marriage you hope to build. Cannot recommend her enough! :)

Sarah was amazing. She set us at ease immediately upon meeting her. Her sense of humor was refreshing, and her ability to communicate was second to none. She especially impressed us at the rehearsal, as she gently but firmly herded all the cats into the corral. I (the groom) was super stressed and nervous prior to the rehearsal, but was very calm the day of the wedding, knowing we had a good plan and everything was going to go correctly. Everything the day of the wedding was absolutely perfect, and I wouldn't have changed a thing.

We loved working with Pat for our wedding ceremony. I was really invested in having a wedding ceremony that felt personal, reflecting our values and relationship. Pat came ready with lots of suggestions - she works off a general format with TONS of options for her wording, but is ready and willing to edit or change or add anything that you want.

During our ceremony I was able to really feel love and joy and connected to both my husband and our family and friends. We didn't have to worry about anything, and really appreciated Pat's professional nature and clear organization during planning and the day itself.

My review really cannot do justice for how amazing Pat was before, during, and after our wonderful wedding. My wife, Erin and I, were married on a crisp, gorgeous September 24th day at an unassuming locale known as Folklore Village. But our work with Pat began long before that, over a year in fact, when we were both newly engaged thumbing through her detailed, extensive wedding planner. Seeing as Pat was already a long time family friend of Erin's, I was nervous to make a good impression. As soon as I shook hands with Pat, those nerves quickly dissipated as her warm, kind personality radiated off of her. She helped walk us through how we envisioned our ceremony was going to be and made sure to incorporate unique aspects that we both wanted to experience during our day. At every step of the way she had an answer at the ready for us and made the planning process as stress free as possible.
On our rehearsal day she was thoroughly prepared and helped walk us through the ceremony even though we still had many parts we were not sure how we wanted to play out. Even with our lack of preparation, Pat had the perfect response for what would work and made what would normally be a tense afternoon seem blissful.
The day of the wedding could not have gone more smoothly. Minutes before the ceremony, as I stood outside the chapel with my fellow groomsmen, she made sure to spend time and chit chat (and even take a couple pictures) with us to make us feel as comfortable and relaxed as possible. I cannot describe how grateful I was for her to step aside from an extremely busy schedule to do that.
Erin and I cannot thank Pat enough for officiating our wedding and we fully endorse everyone to consider her when they are planning their wedding. We really cannot thank you enough for how appreciative we are of your work.
