One of the things I love about working with weddings is that for a short time you get to feel like you're really a part of someone's life. That's certainly true for jazz singer Karen Michaels. In August 2011, Mark hired Karen and her guitarist to help him pull off a surprise proposal to Christy in front of the Bellagio fountain in Vegas. Karen thoughtfully brought along her camera so the couple would have photos of the proposal. A few weeks later, the couple asked Karen to sing at their April 2012 wedding.
