Acoustic Processional Song

Hi all!
We're having one of our good friends who is an amazingly talented artist play acoustic guitar and sing for our ceremony. This includes before while people are milling around and waiting, and also a song for me to walk down the aisle to. I'm wondering what ideas you all have for something he could interpret? There are a few things I like:
- "Steady As We Go" - Dave Matthews Band
- "Forever"- Ben Harper
- "You and Me" - DMB

I want something modern and unique. Not opposed to something more upbeat either. Don't want anything too "wedding-y". Any ideas ladies? Laughing much appreciated!

    We were fortunate enough to have a talented guitarist play Storybook Love from a Princess Bride (the movie).    I also think Forever would be a great choice.

    We're having our acoustic player do some Bon Iver tunes, like Beach Baby, Flume, and Blindsided. I'm a huge Bon Iver fan. FI isn't, but he doesn't really care too much about the details :)

    Oh, and he'll also be playing 'My Hands Are Shaking' by Sondre Lerche. It's from the movie 'Dan In Real Life.' Love it!
