By on Jul. 24th

Our talented musical sponsor, Matthew McConnel (a composer with a doctoral degree in composition!), makes custom music compositions for weddings — from processionals and recessionals to first dance pieces. Matthew could TOTALLY be your ultimate solution to first dance songs that aren't done-to-death, or that perfect "Here Comes the Bride" alternative for your dual entrance, even that non-sappy father/daughter or mother/son dance.

Now let's talk about all your options when it comes to custom wedding music. Oh! AND the special offbeat discounts that Matthew is offering. (Yup, discounts — plural.)

Your original custom composition can be tailored to your wedding theme, personalities, and preferences. Matthew McConnell can hook you up with tunes in a variety of styles, from classical to impressionist and beyond — including Medieval, Renaissance and New Age.

Matthew McConnell is also featured in our Offbeat Vendors guide!

  • Steampunk weddings might benefit from a neo-Victorian piece with captivating melodies and subtle changes in mood.
  • Renaissance Faire weddings might appreciate an original composition for recorder, dulcimer or other traditional instrument.
  • Musically-inclined couples can play duets with one of his compositions for two pianists seated at a single piano, instead of doing a first dance.
  • Flower girls, ring bearers, or your kid can get involved in the ceremony by playing an "easy piece" written just for children.

Offbeat Discount: From now through September 1st, 2012 Matthew McConnell is offering 20% off all commissions ordered OR a free Minuet in the style of Mozart in addition to your requested custom piece.

No worries if you miss that deadline, because offbeat couples ALWAYS get 10% off all commissions.

No matter what ways you're going to use custom music to enhance your wedding, Matthew will correspond with you during each step of the compositional process. You'll be sent small musical clips to consider, and will totally be able to make suggestions as the piece progresses. At the end, Matthew provides the musical score and parts (when applicable), as well as a CD piano recording of your original wedding music composition.

Basically, if you can find the players, Matthew McConnell can provide you with the tunes. Now get to work on you one-of-a-kind wedding music!
