One of my favorite barns for weddings is the Barn at Harvest Moon Pond in Poynette, WI. Dan and Shaunda had a beautiful wedding there last November. Thank you Jena Schleis Photography for sharing these outstanding photos with me of this super sweet and delightful couple.
One of my favorite photographers is Laura Zastrow Here is another FABULOUS wedding that Laura photographed at the Mansion Hill Inn. This wonderful couple's wedding was a small intimate affair at one of the most beautiful inns in Madison and a great location for a wedding with under 50 guests. I really enjoyed the change of having the bride and groom walk in together down the aisle.
Thank you Laura Zastrow Photography for sharing these STUNNING images from Claire and John's beautiful wedding at the Madison Central Public Library downtown with me. If you are looking for a wonderful and talented photography that is super easy and fun to work with, be sure to check out Laura's website and Facebook page to get a peek at the amazing work she does.
I couldn't have agreed more and say "ditto" with Jen Dederich Photography's comment in her Facebook post: "I am just so spoiled by all of the wonderful couples that I get to photograph!! (insert the word "marry" here) I knew that this was going to be such a fun, easy wedding day full of love and laughter and it was all of that and more. Congratulations Jess and Ryan" (Ceremony & Reception venue at the Edgewater Hotel)
Before I get too deep into this year's wedding season I wanted to look back at some of the weddings I did in 2016. Rachel and Josh got married at the Madison Club on 1/2/16 and I was the officiant. But what a delight to see these photos that Audre Rae Photography took of them in front of Grace Episcopal Church where I work as the wedding coordinator as well.

My husband and I were recently in San Francisco and saw these fern korus at the deYoung Museum.
A koru is a new fern frond as it begins to unfurl. The word “koru” (pronounced kor-roo) is the Maori word for “loop.” A number of years ago I was introduced to this word when my daughter lived in New Zealand. For the indigenous people of New Zealand the koru symbolizes new beginnings and hope for the future. It embodies a new phase of life, positive change and personal growth, working together in harmony and being mindful of the good things in life. I felt the word koru symbolized everything I wanted my officiating business Koru Ceremony to represent. The koru personified the ideals of new beginnings we want to honor in 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. "
