Thank you Pat!

From the moment we connected with Pat, our worries about finding the perfect officiant were put to rest. With time ticking away and our desperation growing, Pat was nothing short of a godsend. Not only is she incredibly kind and professional, but she also took the reins and flawlessly organized our entire ceremony at the beautiful church.

What stood out to us was how Pat went the extra mile to ensure our ceremony was deeply personal and unique to our love story. Every detail was thoughtfully crafted and it was evident she poured her heart into making our day exceptionally special. We are eternally grateful to Pat for her dedication and for making our wedding ceremony more beautiful than we could have ever imagined.

If you're in search of an officiant who is passionate, attentive, and genuinely cares about making your day memorable, we wholeheartedly recommend Pat from Koru Ceremony.

Thank you, Pat, for everything. Your efforts will forever be etched in the memories of our special day.

Highly recommend!!

Sarah was absolutely amazing to work with. She helped us through every step of the way, even the super fine little details you didn't know you had to think about. She is 100% your wedding coordinator for the entire ceremony. She coordinates with all of the other vendors to make sure everyone is on the same page. She makes sure every detail is taken care of, and everyone knows what to do and when to do it! She was always prompt in answering any questions we had. Our ceremony was beautiful, and we couldn't have done it without her! She takes so much of the stress way. Thank you so much Sarah!

My name is Sarah Harrison, Ceremonial Officiant with Koru Ceremony, LLC. I celebrate life with joy and ease and will embody these qualities as your officiant throughout life’s important and special occasions.

As a Non-Denominational Ceremonial Officiant, with more than 15 years of assisting in ceremonial rituals, my heart delights in the ritual of ceremony and in offering support and guidance to those moving into new phases of life, such as weddings, mother/in-utero baby blessings, baptisms, and funerals. I am honored to work in conjunction with Koru Ceremony to create and deliver high-quality and memorable celebrations and ceremonies.

Outside of officiating, I also find joy working as the
Director of Birth - Three Programs at Toad Hill Montessori Toddler House by day and long walks under the stars holding my husband's hand by night. I love to travel with my family, especially to places by the sea. I love to laugh and share good times with family and friends. And so, I ask you for an opportunity to introduce myself and share my love for Koru Ceremony and the work we do to ensure the couple's 100% satisfaction on their wedding day.

Wedding Officiant

Hi, I’m Peter Leidy. Just a few years ago, I officiated my first wedding ceremony. (Better late than never!) It was for my niece and her fiancé. I didn’t realize until the day that I wanted to have this role more regularly.

I love weddings, other commitment ceremonies, and celebrations of life milestones. When two people commit to each other, I believe it is one of the most beautiful moments humans can experience. Having been married to the love of my life for over 35 years adds to my enthusiasm!

The wedding day is a big deal; I want it to be just right for the couple, their families, and their guests. Weddings can sometimes be a blur, with all the nerves, expectations, and overall excitement of the day. I have a calming presence, keeping everyone as much as possible in the moment. I also use humor, whatever adds to the joy!

I have a lot of experience speaking to large and small groups, as that’s what much of my work outside of Koru Ceremony entails. I do training, consultation, and conference speaking in the field of disability services and community inclusion. I also write and sing songs and play the guitar. (We can talk about if you would like a personalized song!)

I have recently teamed up with Koru Ceremony and am excited to discuss possibilities with you!

Wow. Having done over 600 weddings as a DJ. I must say I really enjoyed working with Pat. Beforehand emailing me to communicate on our couples behalf, and during the ceremony going over every last detail with me in advance, and her style in the actual ceremony was perfect. Fun, without being corny, elegant, sentimental and thoughtful, without talking too much or adding too much from the officiants perspective. If you cant tell I have seen alot of lesser officiants conducting ceremonies. Pat REALLY nails it. Not to mention just a super friendly person as well! Thanks Pat!

We have known and worked with Rev. Pat Werk for many years, both in her capacity as wedding coordinator at various venues in the Madison area and as a wedding Officiant throughout south central Wisconsin. She is a wonderful combination of being a superb professional and one of the most loving people we have ever met. And she brings both of these to her weddings. She takes great joy in assisting her couples to celebrate what will be a great moment in their lives. She does so by working closely with each couple to create a unique ceremony, one that reflects who the couple is and what is most meaningful in their relationship. The end result is a ceremony that inspires all who attend. If we were getting married again, we would have Rev. Pat as our officiant. Check her out - you will be impressed!
