She improvised and composed a piece for a couple of my songs, and did so very quickly; what I ended up receiving was a gorgeous, symphonic, multi-layered track that went above and beyond.

“A true musician, Michelle took my recommendations and suggestions with consideration for our event. She was the sole musician for our wedding ceremony, and though we did not have a tradition processional or recessional, she made the experience unique.
