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. Here are some ideas to get you started when planning the music for your wedding.
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.

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!
