Wedding Playlist

I have been trying to select some songs to play during our calm, natural, semi-unconventional wedding. It is a small venue, and will not allow much room for dancing, so a lot of these songs are of the folk-psych or shoegaze variety, with a few surprises thrown in. I have also been intentionally trying to avoid any lyrics which do not reflect positive ideas of romantic love (although one or two may have secretly slipped in). If you have any other ideas along these lines, please feel free to post!

The Asteroid No. 4- Flowers of Ours
