A Gospel Choir Sang "All My Life" By K-Ci & JoJo at Micah and Jason's Wedding and It Was PERFECT
The most important part of your wedding is, of course, celebrating the love between you and your partner, but it is also a time to show off your unique style. Micah and Jason wanted their wedding to feel modern with a super fun 70's disco vibe. Their bridal party wore all-white BHLDN x Jill Stuart jumpsuits while the grooms wore custom purple suits from Michael Andrews Bespoke. Plus, Dannis Winston of DWP Live Events put together an incredible gospel choir that gave an EPIC live performance of K-Ci & Jojo’s “All My Life” before the ceremony started. KLassey Productions did a flawless job of capturing Micah and Jason's modern, disco party wedding in the three-part mini series, featured below. Read on for our full interview with Micah.
The Love Story
How did you meet and fall in love?
We connected on Tinder back in 2013 and finally met on July 4th weekend for cocktails in the West Village and the rest is history.
Tell us how the proposal happened!
We were in Miami for a friend’s wedding. On Sunday morning, I woke up to my clothes laid out and the room all packed up by Jason. I was thrown off, but went with it… Jason asked me to pick his favorite place for brunch (The Miami EDITION) before needing to be at the Miami Design District for a surprise at 1 PM. Jason stationed two stealth photographers in the center of the luxe shopping plaza who perfectly captured the proposal. It started to rain as we got there and cleared up just in time for the proposal, which was symbolic for us that you can plan so much in your life, but sometimes you just have to have faith.
In Part I of your wedding video series, we see some really epic shots of your bridal party. I love that you and Jason wore chic purple suits while the rest of your bridal party wore all white. It was unique and refreshing and you all looked amazing! Who designed your suits? How did you decide on the all-white bridal party theme?
We wanted our wedding to be modern, chic and have a kind of 70's, disco-vibe. Jason was the brains behind everything creative pretty much. Since we weren’t wearing white, he wanted the girls to have a cohesive, sleek look so we opted for four different Jill Stuart for BHLDN jumpsuit silhouettes. Our girls loved wearing them! Jason and I wore custom suits in different purple colors but the same silhouette from Michael Andrews Bespoke.
In Part II, the bridal party enters the ceremony during a live performance of K-Ci & Jojo’s “All My Life.” It was PERFECT. Does that song have any special meaning for you and Jason?
We actually walked down the aisle to The Beatles “I Want To Hold Your Hand,” but we did have an incredible gospel choir, put together by Dannis Winston of DWP Live Events, that sang several iconic love songs as guests were taking their seats. In addition to “All My Life,” they sang Mariah Carey’s, “Always Be My Baby” and John Legend’s “All Of Me.”
Parts II and III are really focused on your ceremony and vow exchange, which was beyond heartwarming. You’re an excellent spokesperson and host, and from what I can tell in these videos, Jason has a really bright personality, too. So I am not at all surprised that your vows were A+. Do you and Jason have advice for people who are writing their vows right now? What’s the secret to vows that are both emotional and fun?
I think it’s important for your vows to be serious because it is what you are promising your partner, but I also think that infusing personality and inside jokes can be really charming if it’s done right. For instance, at the end of my vows, I said, “I love you Bubs. Or should I say hubs?” (Our hashtag was #FromBubsToHubs, so it was super cute!)
How did you find your videographer KLassey Productions, and why did you ultimately chose them?
We found KLassey Productions through our friend Karina who is an incredible wedding and event planner locally in New York City. She had worked with them in the past and highly recommended them. We watched several of their videos and totally vibed with their cinematic techniques and ability to capture the energy and emotions.
Why did you decide to split your wedding video into a series? Would you recommend other couples ask their videographers to do the same?
There are thousands of precious moments during a wedding, but with three or four short-form videos in a series, separated by getting ready, bridal party photos, ceremony and the reception, we’re able to relive the major “highlights” of the day in a more digestible way than watching a 15-30 minute film (which we love, by the way, we just felt like shorter videos were better for us).
What advice would you give a couple who is planning their wedding right now that no one gave you?
Everyone loves to give advice for your wedding. But, perhaps the best advice of all is, try your best not to leave your partner’s side all night. You’re getting pulled in a million directions and it’s important to spend that night, that you’ve been planning for so long, together.
What is your go-to date night?
Dinner at one of our favorite restaurants and then home to our puppy.
Name your three favorite things to do in NYC.
Long walks in Central Park on a gorgeous day, going to the dog park with our puppy, Disco (@discotheboston), and try new restaurants.
What is your favorite thing about each other?
We love that we are both honest with each other. That is the foundation of trust.
If you were to guess, where will you be and what will you be doing when you celebrate your 10-year wedding anniversary?
Oh, that’s a tough one. Hopefully happy and living our best lives.
