What is your most memorable wedding?
I've been very luck to sing at some beautiful venues and for some beautiful couples. Singing a gorgeous jazz version of "Single Ladies" as the bridesmaids entered at one wedding was fantastic fun! Also, seeing tears in the eyes of a newly married couple as I sung their first dance was a magical moment I won't forget!

Describe your typical process with a couple.
Once a couple makes contact we discuss the feel/theme/style of their wedding. I always like to hear about the proposal too! Then we work through what music requirements the couple has (from ceremony singing to first dance) and what sort of music they enjoy. We look through my repertoire list and see what pops out, and if the couple have any special requests I try my very best to accommodate them.
