Matt’s career in the wedding and music industries began in 1993 as a wedding DJ and owner of DJ Express in Montana in the 1990s. He continued his love of music and weddings in 2003 by creating a broadline wedding planning website WeddingMuseum.com. However, Matt realized that the music playlists on the site were the most popular section.
In January 2017 WeddingMuseum.com rebranded to MyWeddingSongs.com to strictly focus on music suggestions. Now with more than 600 curated playlists, MWS has found its niche in the music and wedding industries.
He strives to curate the song lists with new songs being released each week with a focus on wedding song lists including wedding ceremony and reception songs, newly released, hot 50, and top 100 all-time.
Matt is the author of the Wedding Songs Playlist: The Ultimate Guide to Planning Your Wedding Music that is updated biannually.
You can find him speaking at conferences, sharing in the Wedding Songs Chat Facebook group and YouTube.
In 2021 Matt became an official member of the Rolling Stone Culture Council.
In June 2021, Matt became a board member of the Las Vegas Wedding Chamber of Commerce as the Communications Director.
