Want classical music in your wedding? Let's make a Liszt!

So I really like classical music a lot, and I thought I'd share some of the music I like for the piano. What about cello, violin, quartet stuff?
Du bist die Ruh (this Liszt transcription based on a really beautiful art song by Schubert, worth hearing Ian Bostridge sing it) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fObvgKg5VKc&hd=1
Widmung, transcribed by Liszt: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RJl9Z5_FKsY&hd=1 (it's based on a series of song cycles written by Robert Schumann when he finally got to marry the love of his life, Clara, who was a genius composer in her own right.) 
Berceuse for piano in D flat major by Chopin https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=euxaEYg0GB0&hd=1 (thought this would make a lovely processional.)
Etude no. 1 (Aeolian Harp) by Chopin https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VXlZWSjqg2Y&hd=1
The Maiden's Wish by Chopin for violin and piano: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yZM-lSYBBKQ&hd=1

That's a good start, and should get you beyond the standard fare. It's all piano, and it's all Romantic, and most of it involves Chopin or Liszt or both, but when it comes to piano you could do worse than those dudes.
But what about other instruments? What about Bach and Mozart? What else do you like?
