For the guy who is truly a hopeless romantic at heart, there may be nothing more special than having a one-of-a-kind song composed for your bride-to-be.
SoulLyric, based in Baltimore, is a company of composers and filmmakers that write original songs and create personal short films for special events, especially weddings and engagements. Composer and SoulLyric owner Terri Fevang is a classically trained pianist who began her career as a music composer for television and film, who eventually realized she wanted to find a way to make music and film accessible as a gift.
“Is there a better way to express your feelings on your wedding day or for your engagement than to have your very own song written, just for you and your sweetheart? No one else in the entire world would ever have this song,” Fevang said. “It’s an especially wonderful and unique way to propose marriage to someone!”
The process …
Fevang said weddings and engagements are most often the source for requests for custom films with music and from the start it’s about learning what’s most important to the couple.
“It starts with a conversation,” she said. “We talk about your event, your intention, what you want to say from your heart, and then I just simply listen to what comes to me and turn it into your song.”
From start to finish, Fevang said a song or film usually takes at least a week but it’s always nice when SoulLyric has a little extra time to perfect it. For some samples of SoulLyric’s work, click here.
“We do what we do because we really believe in using our gifts as composers and filmmakers to help people find their own soul’s voice,” Fevang said. “We all love music, but to be able to listen to a song that was created only for you, one that exists just because of you, is a gift worth giving.”
It’s all about the cost …
There’s no question that this idea is unique and outside the box, so budget accordingly if you think this could add something really special to your big day.
“Think outside the box,” Fevang said. “Live your life from your soul and find your SoulLyric!”
