Guitar is a wonderful option as it extremely versatile when it comes to wedding ceremony music.

Piano Backing track.

Not everyone divides their budget in the same way. Some couples would rather spend more of their budget on a candy cart or photo booth instead of choosing to spend more on their ceremony music or pre-reception music. This is why Kayla offers a more budget friendly piano backing track option. Kayla only uses the highest quality piano only tracks meaning you can splash the cash on other elements of your day while your guest think there is an actual piano player accompanying Kayla.

Check out the video below which features Kayla with piano backing track. This option is available for both ceremony and pre-reception. Once again, this video was filmed and edited by Dave Cooley Photography . Dave is a fantastic wedding photographer and videographer and Kayla is so grateful to have been featured in his work.

Additional Singers:
