Thanks to a listener named Anne who was looking for folk songs for her wedding, we are offering you this list. The folk wedding song post received more comments than anything else we've ever done, with a lot of great ideas that might be useful for other occasions where love and devotion come into play (like, say, Valentine's Day). So here it is, with links to purchase albums through Amazon where we could. I've listed the songs as they were added to the post and it's a long list - click for more at the bottom.
