Mikaela and Matt do things big. They love big. They laugh big. They are all in with each other. And they build each other up when referring to each other to everyone they meet. It’s so inspiring. I love love love their dynamic. It was such an honor to be invited into their world and document their wedding day. To be selected by people you admire so much. You both have inspired me and reinforced in me how important it is to go all in with everything that matters to you. Thank you so much for being yourselves and allowing the day to unfold so beautifully. I believe in the both of you with all my heart and am excited to watch your lives grow together. <3

Susie and Armando and their crew with Encore Event Entertainment are truly the best in the business. They absolutely rocked Mikaela and Matt’s wedding. They’re true professionals unlike anything I’ve ever seen. If you’re considering live entertainment at your wedding, you really ought to consider them!
