Unity Candle Song

Hi! I'm looking for a traditional, instrumental song for our string trio to play during the lighting of the unity candle. What do you suggest?

    These are some of my favorites:
    Debussy - Clair de Lune, Reverie, or Valse Romantique
    Vivaldi - Four Seasons (there are four movements, so you have a little more than an hour to choose from for a good clip)
    Tchaikovsky - Pathetique (Symphony No. 6)
    Ponchielli - Dance of the Hours

    If you're looking more traditional, try some of these:
    Pachabel - Canon in D
    Bach - Air
    Bach - Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring
    Beethoven - Ode to Joy

    I reccommend a string arrangement of "One Hand, One Heart" from West Side Story - it's a beautiful song!

    I'm using "The Wedding Song" by P. Stookey for my wedding. 

    I've also done "Enough" or "I Need You to Love Me" by BarlowGirl, and one of my favorites is "Wherever You Go" by G. Norbet (It's in the Gather series).

    ETA: I know "Enough" was written by Chris Tomlin, but they are both performed by BarlowGirl.
