Special Edition Ceremony Church Wedding Song

And because I'm Swedish, and because my sister sang this in the church at my wedding I had to include it in here as my last song.

I love hearing what music people have selected for their wedding day. The music always portray the couple's personalities and there's usually a great mixture of new and old music!

If you're married - what was your wedding song? And if you are getting married - have you chosen your wedding song yet? Tell me your favorite wedding songs to share with the brides that are still looking for inspiration!
