There are some classic and also some new rituals I hadn't heard of before in this article by Martha Stewart Weddings...
These special rituals will make your wedding ceremony even more poignant.
This is what Caitlin Stemper from Caynayphoto wrote. I couldn't have said it better myself:
"What. A. DAY! My first official wedding of the 2020 season & if these two are any indication for how the season is going to go... Well let's just say, it's going to be a GOOD year (I mean, I'm not surprised. Everyone I work with is spectacular). Today was one for the books and I can not wait to share more from their day. Congratulations Kaitlin & Jeff!"
Here are some more photos from Katlin and Jeff's wedding this past weekend at RiverStone in Fort Atkinson, WI. I haven't officiated weddings at this venue before. What a hidden gem. And what a gem Katlin and Jeff were to work with. Such an amazing and sweet couple!

It's hard to believe that it has been 15 years since I started Koru Ceremony. The first year I had 3 weddings. I recently read through my very first ceremony and I see a rookie trying to figure out how to have a thoughtful and meaningful ceremony. But the words now feel clunky to me. I can see how 15 years and literally hundreds of weddings has helped me hone and perfect how we work with couple to make a one-of-a-kind ceremony that will wow their guests. Some couples I have lost touch with, others I have gone on to baptize their babies and bless their new homes. Even if I don't continue to connect with each and every couple, I still feel honored to have been a part of one of the best days of each couple's life.
Over the years as Koru has continued to grow, I began turning away people because I didn't have the time to be at every celebration. So Amy, then Sarah, and now Peter came onboard to help with officiating. Grace Episcopal Church subcontracts Koru to help with wedding coordination at the church so I have Sarah M., Caryn, and Gwen to help with those weddings when I am not available. In other words, in 15 years Koru Ceremony has gone from 3 weddings to about 90 weddings per year.
Who knew 15 years ago that I would be able to do what I love and am passionate about - helping people celebrate various transitions throughout life's journey whether it is for weddings or other rituals like vow renewals, baptisms, house blessings, blessingways, funerals/memorials, divorce, croning and milestone birthdays. I truly feel blessed and grateful to have had the opportunity to work with so many lovely and delightful couples, families, and individuals. Thank you!

Larissa and Tim were married at The University Club on Dec. 28, 2019. It was a beautiful ceremony celebrating this couple's love for each other. Thank you to the both of them for the honor of officiating their ceremony and assisting in making their dream wedding come true. I am so happy for the both of them. Congratulation Larissa and Tim.
And, it was a pleasure working with their wedding planner, Betsy, Piece of Cake Consulting,LLC, again!
