I know I've mentioned a couple times that David and I are having 'The Luckiest' by Ben Folds sung during our ceremony. And I might have even mentioned that two of our good friends, Mikayla and Cooper, from high school will be the ones singing it. But I've got to give you guys more details than that - These two are incredible!
First and foremost, they're awesome people and great friends.
They've also been playing together for years. Originally, it was for praise and worship in middle school, and then for praise and worship in high school.
Getting ready to play together on our senior trip
Now they play shows together whenever they're in the same city! Mikayla is actually in Nashville right now.

And it doesn't hurt that they're both incredibly talented! Both are amazing guitarists, and Mikayla also plays the piano.
I can't find any recordings of Cooper's, but Mikayla has a myspace account with several of her songs that she wrote herself. Unfortunately, I'm not sure how to embed any of the tracks here, so you'll have to follow the link to check her out, and then imagine her singing this song along with Cooper:
I know it's going to be absolutely gorgeous, and I can't wait to share the recording of it with you when I do my recaps! It's wonderful having such talented friends that will be making our day even more special.
Are you incorporating any of your friends' special talents?
