about us

My wife and I were living in Metro Detroit and about to move to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan after our first child was born. Upon opening doors here of Taylored Weddings we performed the way most DJs did: showing up after dinner, same old playlists, same old lighting setups, same old dances, same old everything!
I knew there had to be something more in regards to providing phenomenal entertainment for couples celebrating one of the most important days of their life.

With the help of some AMAZING couples, I found my passion for weddings and in turn have grown Taylored Weddings into a full time wedding company in Escanaba, MI: a feat most say couldn’t be done. It’s funny now to think of the same old same old. Have you ever been to a wedding and felt like you’d seen it before? That won’t happen with us at the helm of your event. Why? Because we’re tired of the boring wedding reception too.

kaylee kobasic

My name is Kaylee Kobasic and I was fortunate enough to stumble upon Taylored Weddings through Facebook.  What made me want to apply for the position was the obvious passion and love for the music and special moments that Taylored Weddings creates.

I have been involved in Performing Arts ever since I was in grade school. What started as Youth Choir, turned into Honors Choir, turned into a Vocal Performance Major at Grand Rapids Community College. My love for music started when I was very young as my Grandma Mim and Grandpa Ivan performed in a Big Band they proudly called the Ivan Kobasic Band. My Grandpa played the bass in the band but my Grandmother was the vocalist joining the band at the young age of 17.

Music is how my grandparents met, right in the basement of one of Escanaba’s well known restaurants, Hereford and Hops. Although my Grandma was under the age limit to be in the basement she was allowed to be the vocal entertainment. My Grandpa Ivan heard her sing and asked her to join the band not knowing that he would soon fall in love with her and create what is now my great big family.

After I left college I moved back home and pursued a career of customer service starting as a Shift Manager at Hardee’s to a Sales Representative at TEAM Wireless – Verizon. TEAM Wireless was where I really started to enjoy helping people. There is absolutely nothing better than being the reason behind someone’s smile which is why I am so happy to be a part of the Taylored Weddings team. ☺

praised by many


  • I would highly suggest booking Taylored Weddings... They offer so much and literally take the planning right out of your hands. They act as professionals, cover all corners, and make sure you are completely satisfied before the event day.

  • Taylored Weddings truly was nothing short of the best. Mitch and his team helped us along the way by being flexible in meeting times, offering helpful advice, responding quickly to my emails, and creating a super-useful "day of" timeline.

  • Mitch's knowledge and expertise in planning wedding receptions is unmatched. His ability to coordinate the flow of the reception is unreal, and his flexibility and willingness to accommodate requests (within reason) is out of this world.
