So I’ve been looking for what seems like forever for the perfect song to use as my processional music. I like the traditional songs, but it’s just not “us.” We’re having a secular ceremony outside so it was pretty much anything goes.
In my search I knew a few things that I was looking for:
1. IF I used more than one song for the processional (aka I walk down the aisle to a separate song) there had to be a fairly seemless transition.
2. I wanted either acoutic guitar or piano.
3. No lyrics! I want something simplistic and find that lyrics take away from the moment. But there was a caveat to this – if it was an instrumental version of a song with lyrics, the lyrics had to be fitting for the ceremony (e.g. no “Sex on Fire”)
We’re meeting with our DJ tomorrow night so it was kind of now or never to find a song – and it’s now!

There’s a perfect spot for a transition (right around 2:26) and it is simply beautiful. And hey, it doesn’t hurt that Fiance and I are both Kings of Leon fans!
