  • Rev. Pat was fantastic leading up to our wedding. She was personable, timely, and efficient. She worked with us to create the ceremony we were after- something that still had some traditional elements, but ultimately felt like "us." I had complete confidence in her going into my wedding, but she really went above and beyond the day of. She coordinated with the DJ to get the mic set up, spoke to our harpist, and talked to the bridal party and parents to make sure everyone knew what was going on (all things I meant to do before getting caught up in first look photos!). She was quick to adjust when things didn't go exactly as planned. My MOH even commented on how on top of it our officiant was and how her sense of humor was great! The ceremony itself was everything we could have wished for and more. We are so lucky to have found Koru Ceremony!

    Thank you so much, Meghan and Brock, for your heartfelt words of praise. I appreciate it and truly enjoyed working with both of you. I loved your personal vows and the handfasting ritual we added to your ceremony. All the personal elements created some wonderful memorable moments.

  • We originally planned a big wedding for this November, but after the pandemic hit we postponed to next May and opted to do a small backyard wedding on August 1, 2020 since we still wanted to get married this year. Both me and my now husband and our families loved the ceremony and we loved working with Pat! She was very flexible and accommodating when we needed to postpone and I was so happy that she was still available for both of our new dates. We can't wait for Pat to do our vow renewal at our big wedding next year!

    It was delightful to work with you and Will. I look forward to celebrating with both of you again next spring! Wishing you all the best in the coming months before your next celebration.

  • We had the joy of working with Pat Werk for our wedding, and we absolutely loved the process from start to finish. Pat is so personable and really takes the time to get to know you as a couple. We could really feel that she cared for us and our story. Pat does a wonderful job of providing a consultation process to walk you through the various parts of the ceremony and to talk through the abundance of options you have. We loved that she provided several examples and allowed us to choose what we felt was most important to us. Another great thing about working with Pat is that she did a wonderful job at providing direction to our wedding party. She made sure to provide lots of advice on the little details such as directing bridesmaids on how to hold flowers and directing groomsmen on how to hold their hands. The little details can make a big difference and she sure knows how to watch for them. Pat also takes away a lot of the stress of the marriage license and name changing proces... Read more

  • We could not have imagined having anyone else marry us. Pat is extremely organized; she provided multiple documents, including, but not limited to, instructions on obtaining a marriage license, examples of muscle for the ceremony, romantic and religious readings, and a huge wedding planning document containing different options for all parts of the wedding ceremony. We were able to easily customize every part of our ceremony to make it unique to us as a couple. For our pre-wedding meetings, as well as on the big day, she arrived early and always had an enthusiastic and positive attitude during every in-person and virtual interaction. She is s a very polite person, who worked with us so graciously when our ceremony had to be changed because of the pandemic. We will definitely contact Pat again if we decide to do a vow renewal in the future

  • We loved working with Pat. She rescheduled with us 3 times at 2 different locations for our wedding during this crazy time. Her flexibility and patience was a God send. She made creating the ceremony fun and personal for my husband and I, and all of our family agreed that our ceremony was phenomenal. Thank you so much for everything Pat!

    Thank you so much for taking the time to write this glowing review. It was a joy to work with you and Alex. I'm so glad everything worked out and that you and your family enjoyed the ceremony. Wishing you all the best in the years ahead as husband and wife.

  • Pat was amazing to work with especially on our extremely short notice. Finding an officiant on such a quick turnaround was a huge stress point for us, but she worked around our schedules to meet with us and discuss our wants and needs. We immediately knew we made the right choice after our first call. She offered us a variety of options to create a ceremony plan that still felt like our own but was easy enough to personalize on our busy schedules. We couldn't recommend her enough for helping you plan your special day. She made ours one we will remember forever!

    Thank you so much Rick and Lily for your generous words of praise! You are correct, I am passionate about officiating weddings and the reason is that I love rituals and I get to work with wonderful couples like you. I'm so glad you were happy with how the ceremony turned out.

  • Koru and Peter, our officiant, were absolutely amazing. They helped to create a personalized ceremony, provided resources to help with marriage license and name change, and were so respectful and flexible. We could not have asked for a better experience.

    Thank you so much for your glowing review of Peter Leidy and the ceremony he helped you create. We are tickled pink that you found the experience of working with Peter and Koru so positive.

  • Pat was a real joy to work with! She did wonderful in adapting our secular ceremony to include traditional Chinese elements. Her excitement about these details encouraged us through the challenges of planning a wedding during a pandemic. She provided an abundance of sample texts and worksheets that helped us personalize the ceremony but we never felt like we had to write the whole thing. My wedding party including us were so impressed by her leadership and calming presence during the rehearsal even though we had to move to a different location than the ceremony due to rain. She thought of the small details and everyone felt fully prepared for the big day! We could have pulled it off without her and couldn't recommend her more.

    Thank you so much, Alex and Wendy! I loved working with you and helping you create such a unique ceremony that was truly a reflection of your relationship. It meant a lot that you specifically chose June 12 because it is Loving Day, and you wanted to acknowledge this historic event, 54 years ago, when the US Supreme Court struck down any laws forbidding interracial couples from getting married. I also adored the Tea Ceremony we included in the ceremony. It was extraordinary, and I was super impressed by Alex's Chinese. Wishing you an abundance of happiness in the years to come.

  • We chose Pat at Koru Ceremony to officiate our wedding. Pat was friendly, fun to talk to, and easy to work with. She kept a consistent line of communication throughout the ceremony planning process. We were thrilled that we could customize the ceremony as much as we did, making sure that it matched our personalities and highlighted the important parts of our relationship. Pat was so kind and helpful, and even after the wedding she made sure we knew all of our next steps to get licenses and change names. We would recommend Pat to anyone needing an officiant for a wedding ceremony.

    Thank you so much, John and Elizabeth, for your wonderful review! You were a fun and laid-back couple and it was a complete delight to work with both of you. I am delighted to hear you were thrilled with the customized ceremony we created together and that you felt it matched your personalities and highlighted the important parts of your relationship. Those comments mean the world to me!

  • Amy Gile officiated our wedding on 9/28/19 and did such an amazing job. She met with us twice to help put together our ceremony and get to know us better. She made everything so easy and delivered a truly one of a kind ceremony that was very heartfelt. She also accommodated our unique unity ceremony - the blending of two whiskeys! I would highly recommend Amy to anyone!

  • Pat made our ceremony everything we could have dreamed of and more. She made our rehearsal for the big day a breeze and helped make everyone lose some of the big day jitters. We talked on the phone several times before getting married and she made it so comfortable. We can’t thank her enough for making our special day perfect.

    responded with the following comments.

    HI Alie and Cory, Even though we only connected a short time before your wedding day, I felt an instant connection with the two of you from the start. I'm so delighted to hear you found the rehearsal helpful in getting rid of some of your day of jitters, and it warms my heart to hear that you felt I helped make the wedding day perfect. Wishing you all the best in the years to come. Warmly yours, Pat

  • My husband and I highly recommend Koru Ceremony! Our officiant initially sat down with us and took us through the ceremony planning process. Pat was very organized and knowledgeable about each section of the wedding ceremony. She was understanding and really talked about how she wanted the ceremony to reflect who we truly are as a couple. The planning process was clear; informational packets helped us choose from the different ceremony options/phrases/styles that we thought best suited us. Pat is also so easy to talk to in getting to know us. It was nice to be able to see our finalized ceremony so we could makes edits or changes in wording. Our wedding day started off smoothly because we had Pat as our officiant. We knew, after leaving our first initial meeting, that she would be able to set a calming aura at our wedding ceremony to then also set the stage for the rest of our wedding day celebration!

  • We hired Pat as our officiant for our intimate, winter wonderland microwedding & it was the best decision we've ever made! Pat was very accommodating the entire process, especially when we had to change our large wedding plans to a small one. Pat made the perfect and meaningful ceremony for us! We highly recommend working with Koru Ceremony, you will not regret it!
