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.
