Music For Your Wedding

"Songs you won't hear at every other wedding" - Martha Stewart

One of my favorite magazines is Martha Stewart Weddings. In the Summer 2008 issue, they list some great songs that you don't usually hear. I've done hundreds of weddings, and I can vouch for this list as some original but not too obscure songs to have on your special day.
