Anyone who knows me knows that I'm extremely sentimental. I cry when a cute puppy walks by, get far too emotional when watching movies, love giving hugs, and above all - I love celebrating love.
Anytime I get to sing at a wedding, proposal, rehearsal dinner, or engagement party, I am so full of joy. If I can lend my voice to create a special moment for you and your loved ones, I feel like I'm fulfilling my purpose (cheesy, but true). Love is the most important thing on Earth and it should always be celebrated!
I would love to be a part of your special day. Read below for some ideas to get you started when planning the music for your wedding. Scroll down for videos, testimonials and more!
Prelude: Welcome music that creates a relaxing atmosphere before the ceremony begins and lets your guests get settled in for the ceremony. This usually begins about 15 minutes before the ceremony.
Processional: The formal entrance of family, the wedding party (bridesmaids, groomsmen, flower girls, etc), the groom(s) and the bride(s).
Recessional: The formal exit of family, the wedding party, and the bride(s) & groom(s).
*I recommended three songs for a full ceremony: (1) family & party's formal entrance, (2) the bride's grand entrance and (3) the recessional
Cocktail Hour/Dinner: Kick back and relax because - hey, you're married! While you take pictures or enjoy drinks and dinner with your friends and family, I will perform a specially curated playlist to create the perfect vibe for your celebration.
Special Dances: Want to do something special for your first dance? I'd love to play for you! Pick "your song" or a song that you love to dance to and I will introduce you in style as you take the floor for the very first time as a married couple. Special dance ideas: Newlyweds, Father/Daughter, and Mother/Son
SPECIAL SONG REQUESTS
I'll work with you to pick the perfect songs for your ceremony, first dances, etc. I'm happy to learn any special songs for you (if I don't already know them). Or if you'd rather leave it up to me, that works too! I know how important music is, and I want to make sure your day is everything you dreamed and more.
My specialties are pop, indie-folk, soul/r&b, and jazz but I love all genres of music! Click "HERE" for my song list to get you started brainstorming!
CUSTOM WEDDING SONG
Want to turn your love story or vows into a song? Maybe a parent wants tell everyone how much you mean to them through music. I'll take your story and turn it into a personalized song that you can have forever. (Please request 3 months prior)
Check out some examples below of custom wedding songs written by my writing partner and I.
“Mikaela has such an angelic voice! Thanks for helping make my special day a dream! ”

Solo - piano and vocals (just me and my keyboard)
Duo - guitar and vocals (with optional keyboard)
Choose between a classic solo performance, or an intimate duo with my guitarist, Jordan. He is also a great singer and we love harmonizing together. If you'd like to go simple we can play purely acoustic (two vocals, one acoustic guitar), or I can bring my keyboard along for some added depth (two vocals, one acoustic guitar, one keyboard). *We will also provide our own PA system*
Either option works great for wedding ceremonies, cocktail hours, special dances, dinner/reception music, and even rehearsal dinners and engagement parties!
