Jessica Sutta is officially a married woman. On September 14, the former Pussycat Dolls singer married her longtime boyfriend, Mikey Marquart, in a romantic ceremony in Malibu, California.

The couple’s nuptials featured an array of sentimental touches such as the pair reciting their vows on a mountaintop with oceanside views of the Pacific. Their venue was decorated with 10,000 roses and included cozy fire pits and whimsical crystal chandeliers.

Sutta, who wore a Galia Lahav blush pink ball gown, recalls the moment she walked down the aisle as being unlike anything she’s experienced before. “It was the most beautiful feeling that I can only describe as electric,” she tells The Knot.

Marquart, a drummer in the band Ambrose, had a similar feeling when he saw his future wife for the first time. “She was the most beautiful person I’d ever seen,” he says.

The musicians worked with Julie Pryor of Pryor Events to make their “fairytale dream wedding come to life.” Of all the personal touches added throughout the day, from the couple’s personalized vows to their matching leather jackets they wore at the end of the night, it was the bride and groom’s heartfelt music selections that held the most weight throughout the day.

“Our first dance was ‘I Get to Love You’ by Ruelle and it was performed live by Mikey’s sister, Sam,” Sutta says. The heartfelt choice was one the couple decided on long before the wedding. “We were driving to Big Bear one day and we thought it would be fun to look up wedding songs on Spotify. It was the third song to come on and by the end of it we were both in tears, and knew this song was completely us.”

As the night continued, guests danced to live music from the band Jump Start. “They were amazing and got everyone on the dance floor,” Sutta recalls. “There was lots of Bruno Mars, Justin Timberlake, slow songs and classic rock.”

Looking back on their romantic wedding, the couple, who got engaged in 2018, couldn’t have envisioned a better day. “We were so lucky we had a beautiful full moon that night too, that lit up the ocean and took our breath away,” Sutta says. “Overall we had the greatest night of our lives.”
