2017 // Piano Performance for your Rehearsal Dinner or Dinner by Michael Benson

TELL US ABOUT MICHAEL BENSON BAND

We have been voted the Best Live Entertainment for a wedding in Seattle Bride Magazine for 13 consecutive years, and have performed at over 2300 weddings. Our service covers all the unique elements of wedding celebrations: the ceremony, cocktail/social hour, dinner hour, emcee announcements and of course, dancing. The music begins at the ceremony with a classic piano/flute ensemble, then livens up the cocktail-hour atmosphere with our jazz pianist, duo, or the full band. An elegant dining atmosphere flows smoothly along with Sinatra-Era swing and classics, played sensitively enough to allow for easy table conversation. Finally, the unforgettable climax takes off with our 80-90 minute, non-stop-segue sets of dance favorites. Our uniqueness lies in having the widest range of music heard anywhere, with everything from Sinatra Era swing and jazz for cocktail and dinner to current pop, hip hop and rap hits for dancing, all covered authentically with top quality audio.

WHAT DO PEOPLE SAY ABOUT YOU

Clients appreciate my prompt communication, personalized service, and attention to every detail of their events, and they continually say their guests keep talking about the music at the wedding for many years afterward. A phrase we hear over and over by guests from across the nation is “there is no band in our city who does everything you’ve done tonight, at the level you do it.”

TELL US ABOUT REBECCA ELLISON PHOTOGRAPHY

I help people enjoy the whirlwind moments in life. I capture the memories and create beautiful portraits for couples and families to be able to live the moments instead of capturing them. Your wedding is an unique day in that it’s one of those times you bring everyone who is important to you together to celebrate and make memories. But it’s a whirlwind, and I know that the photographs I create help you remember the day and the people more vividly as well as it creates legacy for your family.

GHGH is here to helps couples find great items for their wedding, but honestly we are here to pay it forward and help the community at large, and not just for the one day in ones lives.

WHY DO YOU LOVE GET HITCHED GIVE HOPE

I kept hearing about Get Hitched, Give Hope from a variety of vendors and eventually just had to check it out for myself! Last year’s gala was the first one I ever attended and I fell in love with the people, the dream, and the overwhelming amount of support that was, literally, VISIBLE at the event. Seeing that passion made me realize I wanted my small business to become a part of something bigger.
