It might be a little too blatantly spiritual for you, but we used Chris Rice’s "Hallelujahs" in our ceremony.  While not a "love" song, it is  a meaningful song for us, has a great soulful melody,  and was a unique choice to boot!  We had it sung accompanied by solo piano (as in the track) but I’m sure a guitarist would be a find accompanist as well.

I love Led Zeppelin’s Bron-Yr-Aur. I don’t know that it’s spiritual enough, but it’s about a place they loved and it’s all instrumental. I bet it’d sound great done by a quartet with a guitar.

What about greensleeves?  It is a love song.

I think "Feels Like Home" might fit that bill. The version I fell in love with was from the How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days soundtrack and by Chantal Kreviazuk. I think there are a few other recordings out there too, but I don’t know who sings them. The words are so pretty and just great for a wedding I think. Depending on your particular love story it may be just right, or a little off, but there is a "we were made for each other" sentiment that is religious if you interpret it that way, and secular if you want it to be. Beautiful for a female voice, and a single guitar or string accompaniment would be a great background.

Steven Curtis Chapman’s "I Will Be Here" would also be beautiful.
