What attracted you to the profession? ?I have been playing music my whole life. I loved the idea of getting to pair my artistic ability with the structure of the wedding|event business.
What is your most memorable wedding and why? ?Each wedding is memorable and significant in different ways. Last year phase5 had the chance to play for a wedding at TPC Sawgrass in Jacksonville. It was a thrill to be playing in the same venue where the PGA Golf tour is played. The venue is beautiful. The staff was exceptional and the crowd was amazing! Also, they have the best tiny skillet baked chocolate chip cookies on earth.
Would you say that you have an area of expertise or specialty? ?I love working with clients to plan a memorable night of music!
If you could offer one piece of advice to every bride, what would it be? I think the best weddings are those where the bride and groom are thoughtful of their guests when choosing music for the reception.
Why do you love working with Event Design? One of the very first weddings that we played several years ago was with Event Design at the Sandpearl! The organization and attention to detail provided by the team made for a beautiful and stress-free night. We are still thankful for their expertise and guidance when we were so new to the industry.
