As a former bride myself, I understand how overwhelming the process of planning a wedding can be. Every detail is important because it has significance to you. That makes it important to me. My job is to set your mind at ease as I take your needs and requests and implement the music for your dream wedding. I specialize in smooth jazz, pop-jazz, and soft pop/rock/soul hits from the 50’s to today (I can throw in some country if requested), creating a very relaxing and chilled atmosphere for the upscale, classy reception that many brides dream of having. I am also fully capable of directing events within the reception in the absence of an MC, such as announcing the bride and groom, bouquet toss, inviting toasts, etc…



  1. We will meet in advance–a coffee shop, over dinner, or better yet, at the event location–and discuss in detail what you envision musically for your special day.
  2. If you don’t have a vision and are open to suggestions, I can consult based on my experience as a bride and as a professional musician who has performed many weddings. I can offer a song list to choose music from and will even add your own special requests in–tailoring this beautiful occasion just for you and your needs.
  3. I will confirm details with you a week from the date of the wedding. (You are welcome to contact me anytime while planning the event! I’m here for YOU!)
  4.  Relax! Focus on yourself, your partner, and this day! You will have the most gloriously planned wedding without any worries over the music–for ceremony and/or reception–and your friends will be envious, talking about your wedding for years to come.

If you’d like more information, just fill out the contact form–it costs nothing to contact me and you have no obligation to book.
