My nephew is playing the acoustic guitar for our ceremony.  He will be playing “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” for our recessional – the Israel Kamakawiwo’ole inspired version

We’re doing the piano exit from Layla by Derek and the Dominos.  This part of the song was featured in the movie Goodfellas, which is a favorite of ours, and the first movie we ever watched together (on the night we met).

@milesbella: I love that song! We are trying to find a place for this song in our ceremony. πŸ™‚

Our recessional is “500 Miles” by the Proclaimers. We both love it and we think it’s a great upbeat song to end the ceremony with. Plus we are walking up the aisle together as husband and wife, what better lyrics than “I would walk 500 miles…”?!

We decided on Linus & Lucy from Peanuts.  We’re also keeping it a secret from everyone so hopefully they’ll laugh with us as we start our married life together.

I’m having a traditional church service so mine will be Hornpipe from Water Music by Handel.  I love it!

We did “You Are The Best Thing” by Ray LaMontagne. It was so perfect!

Our recessional will be Smile by Uncle Kracker, cause it’s our song, and encapsulates how we feel about each other πŸ™‚

We’re using “Kiss Me” by Sixpence None the Richer.

@cleve_girl01: We had a Catholic ceremony. For our recessional, we chose “Ode to Joy” which is my mom’s favorite song. I picked it because it’s her favorite and a great song for the recessional.
