Here Strums the Bride
In ten years, you turn your music player on and realize, that there are three things from your wedding day that you cherish the most. Your photographs, your wedding video, and the wedding song written just for you. It was the song for your first dance, it was the song that scored your wedding video, and it was the song that taught your children how you met and fell in love. This is not a new idea, for centuries royalty have been commissioning composers to write music for their weddings. We see every bride and groom as royalty on their wedding day – we would be honored if you would commission us for your personal wedding song.
We create a personal wedding song with music and lyrics based on your love story. From your consultation to the finished product, you will work one-on-one with our songwriter and musician Gil Kline to ensure that you will cherish your love song forever. At Here Strums The Bride we like to say, “You wrote your love story, let us write your love song.”
