In your life, people ask you 'what would you do if you could do anything in the world?'  My answer has always been being a part of people's weddings, whether it's as a coordinator, DJ, attendant, designer or entertainer.  My years of experience make me not only a fun and entertaining DJ, but a capable guide from choosing your wedding gown and venue to setting up your lighting, slideshow and reception events.  I want to get to know you, your love story and what your perfect day would look like  and then I want to make that happen.

Here's a little bit of my background: I've had a love of music all of my life.  I've been performing vocally for more than 20 years in bands, singing competitions, weddings, at sporting events (National Anthem on ESPN 2001) and even an opera. I've also danced competitively and acted on stage and in television commercials.  I've been planning weddings since 2008 when I managed an event facility, but my passion for weddings started when I was a little girl.  Like many little girls, I grew up watching Disney Princesses find the man of their dreams and live happily ever after; I was captivated by the power of love and grew to appreciate weddings as the day when dreams come true.  In 2009, I met the man of my dreams and I planned our dream wedding.  Our wedding took place under a pergola at a vineyard on the perfect summer day.  We had an intimate ceremony of 50 family members, many of which were meeting for the first time.  We had a wine and cheese tasting following the ceremony, which my Grandfather officiated.  The wine was made of grapes off of the vines only steps from our guests and the cheese was made in the factory where my husband's great Grandfather had spent his life working.  Our reception was in a rustic and elegant private restaurant with a plated meal of locally grown and harvested vegetables, grains and locally caught fish.  I created the playlist and music for my own reception, decorated the brick walls and cedar tables in wildflowers and herbs and gave out organic tea leaf favors with packets of honey collected in the Michigan town where I grew up.  Every piece of our wedding was deliberate and very personal to us.  This is the experience that I want to create for others.  

I've been blessed to marry the love of my life, raise his daughter and have a son and daughter of our own.  Being a part of your wedding day and your love story is truly an honor that I do not take for granted.  If you choose me as your DJ/MC, I will make your wedding day all about you so that you can remember it as the first best day of your life together.
