Right now I love “Rhythm of Love” by the Plain White T’s.  I can’t keep from smiling when I hear it.

Look up Incubus- Stellar acoustic on YouTube.  I think it’s a beautiful rendition of the song!

“I’m Yours” by Jason Mraz has always felt very wedding to me, along with “Banana Pancakes” by Jack Johnson. I think “I’m Yours” uses a Ukelele but I’ve heard it adapted to an acoustic guitar.

Edward Sharpe and the magnetic Zeros-Home

such a great song and so cute. Lyrics to Home:

Alabama, Arkansas, I do love my Ma & Pa Not the way that I do love you
Holy Moley, Me-oh-My, you’re the apple of my eye Girl, I’ve never loved one like you
Man, oh man, you’re my best friend, I scream it to the nothingness There ain’t nothin’ that I need
Well, hot & heavy, pumpkin pie, chocolate candy, Jesus Christ There ain’t nothin’ please me more than you
Ahh, Home Let me come Home Home is wherever I’m with you (2x)
La la la la, take me Home Baby, I’m coming Home
I’ll follow you into the park, through the jungle, through the dark Girl, I’ve never loved one like you
Moats & boats & waterfalls, alley ways & pay phone calls I’ve been everywhere with you
That’s true
We laugh until we think we’ll die, barefoot on a summer night Nothin’ new is sweeter than with you
And in the streets we’re running free like i’s only you and mee Geez, you’re somethin’ to see.
Ahh, Home Let me come Home Home is wherever I’m with you (2x)
La la la la, take me HomeBaby, I’m coming Home
“Jade?” “Alexander?” “Do you remember that day you fell out of my window?” “I sure do, you came jumping out after me.” “Well, you fell on the concrete and nearly broke your ass and you were bleeding all over the place and I rushed you off to the hospital.  Do you remember that?” “Yes, I do.” “Well, there’s something I never told you about that night.” “What didn’t you tell me?” “While you were sitting in the backseat smoking a cigarette you thought was going to be your last, I was falling deep, deeply in love with you and I never told you ‘til just now.” “Now I know.”
Ahh, Home Let me come Home Home is whenever I’m with you Ahh, Home Let me come Home Home is when I’m alone with you
Home Let me come Home Home is wherever I’m with you
Ahh, Home Yes, I am Home Home is when I’m alone with you.
Alabama, Arkansas, I do love my Ma & Pa Moats & boats & waterfalls & pay phone calls
Ahh, Home Let me come Home Home is wherever I’m with you Ahh, Home Let me come Home Home is when I’m alone with you

The Beatles – Two of Us

It was one of the songs we played while we signed our marriage license.

We played some others that would probably be better suited to an electric guitar, but the song we used for our recessional might work on an acoustic – it’s called Brand New Start by Little Joy.
