For a wedding that goes off without a hitch, you need someone with extensive experience who knows exactly what they’re doing.

We partner with you to make the entire process stress-free and fun! We’ll help you prepare for an evening of memorable musical experiences curated specifically to your taste and reflective of your personality!


Music has the power to stir up hidden emotions and memories that were stored away decades ago. As you grow together as a couple, music will bring back vivid memories of one of your most important life events. Whether you prefer a ceremony that is elegant and romantic or similar to a Saturday night club experience, The Haute Knot will deliver!

We draw from our wide variety of DJ experiences and musical knowledge to select songs that will flawlessly convey the musical message you plan to send to each other and your guests.


During the pre-event consultations, we help plan each musical moment throughout the day to make sure each event smoothly flows into the next. We also gather specific information needed to organize musical selections for each aspect of your wedding, including the cocktail and dinner hours and open dance portion of the reception. That information is then used to curate playlists for each aspect of the event. The result is a remarkable evening that you will treasure forever.

On the day of your wedding, we draw from your playlists on the spot to make sure each song is appropriate for any given moment. Our goal is to build the very best musical experience for you and your guests, assuring that each song lines up with your taste and musical preferences. We speak when necessary throughout the evening, letting your guests know whats happening as formalities occur. We understand this is YOUR day and not our show. We work with you to prepare for your wedding day so it is entirely fun and stress-free!

Our couples loved their experience with The Haute Knot!

Out of all of the DJs I had been researching, I went with my gut and chose Meryl to DJ my wedding last month. I cannot express how happy I am that I did. From the start, she was incredible to work with and really listened to what I wanted as well as gave input based on her experience. What resulted was the best music I had ever heard at any wedding. She is talented, professional, and a accommodating. There was such a fresh mix of music and I loved that she didn’t let each song linger for too long. Transitions were flawless and I was thrilled that the dance floor was packed the entire night. My biggest fear was an empty dance floor and that was not even a possibility on my special day. I have received numerous compliments from not only my guests, but from my vendors and event coordinator (who actually asked for Meryl’s contact info so she could refer future clients to her). I’ll be recommending Meryl to all of my friends seeking a DJ.

Alex and I cannot possibly thank you enough for the hard work you put into our wedding and reception.  Having an awesome dance party was so important to us and you definitely exceeded our expectations.  Working with you was so easy and fun, we will refer everyone we can to you!  We got so many compliments from our guests on our awesome DJ!  We hope that you had some fun too.  Thanks again for everything.

She DJ’d my wedding. Incredible. Even the catering company said of all the weddings they cater (multiple ones in a week), she was literally the best one they have ever performed. The reason I liked her the most was that she tailored the music to my liking, and she didn’t just play a boring mix of stale music from 5 years ago (like you hear at most weddings). I’ve also seen her perform in Ann Arbor, and almost saw her show in New York. If you are ever in the area, GO SEE HER! 5 star in every way!!!

Meryl DJ’d our wedding and was amazing! She read the crowd very well, got our friends and family dancing early on, and as the night progressed transitioned the dance floor into a great party. We received tons of compliments from friends after. Highly recommend!
Kristin Carlson
Perfect DJ! I was so happy to find her for our wedding. She was wonderful to work with from start to end. She really cares about finding your music taste and style. I seriously felt like every song was played off of my ipod or something. Not only is she an amazing DJ, she’s also a super cool person to work with. Very calm and nice and always responds quickly. She’s not cheesy like commercial DJs. She is just awesome. I could go on all day, all I am trying to say is I would recommend her to anyone. We loved her, she’s great!!

Meryl was the DJ for my wedding (both the ceremony and reception). She was very professional, and executed everything just as I wanted, even though we only briefly chatted on the phone. During the dance party portion of the reception, she did a phenomenal job of assessing the crowd in order to decide what to play. Early in the night, she had all of my older relatives out on the dance floor, and once they left later in the night, the dance floor was packed with all of our friends. It was such a great party, thanks to her! I highly recommend hiring her for a wedding or any other event!

Meryl was the best event DJ we could have asked for. She arranged music for our wedding ceremony, cocktails, and dinner, then performed at our reception. Our guests ranged in age from 20s-80s, and literally every single person was out on the dance floor, even people who swore they wouldn’t. She found a way to play songs that everyone could relate to, and our guests could not stop talking about how much they loved the music. Just from a few phone conversations and a survey, she had a great read on our tastes and styles. It was the most beautiful soundtrack to the perfect event, and we would wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone!

Meryl blew us away. Thoughtful, well curated music that kept everyone dancing on our wedding night. Her prep started months in advance, with a thoughtful questionnaire and a shared Spotify playlist. All of her hard work shined through on the wedding night — she curated an amazing set list. Meryl is a talented DJ, with a great ear. Totally worth the investment; I would definitely recommend for your wedding/party/event.
Olivia Lloyd Smith
Meryl was the DJ for our wedding at Cornman Farms in the spring of 2015. Right from the start, she worked with us to ensure the music was exactly what she wanted. There was a questionnaire we filled out about types of music we like and didn’t like and we also provided a list of songs we wanted to play. One thing we particularly liked was the transitions: she made sure that the songs didn’t linger on too long and kept everyone interested and dancing and having fun. I would not hesitate to recommend Meryl for any wedding or event.
James Davenport
Meryl is amazing to work with. She really takes the time to get to know the client, and offer them what will work best for their needs. She will take time out of her personal life to connect via phone or email, and even with our super busy schedules, which sometimes did not afford us the luxury of getting back with her immediately, she was still there, and answered all questions. If you are looking for someone who cares about her clients, I cannot recommend Meryl enough.
