Song With A lot of Meanig. Wedding Reception

For a wedding reception, what song do feel have a lot of meaning?
I have noticed that this site has a majority of younger folks. Thought it would be interesting to see what each gerneration thinks what songs have a lot of meaning as far as marrage and life. I will date myself here. Anything mid '70s or later I have probably not heard. Please include a Youtube link to your song.

I will start it off.
From my generation one of my top songs would be Harry Chapin's Cats in the Craddle.

My second would be Peter Paul and Mary's Kisses Sweeter than Wine.

I have requested the above songs at all my kids wedding.

Just thought it would be interesting.

My cats aren't spoilt, Just well loved.

"Old Guy" that's a song from my era. Forgot about it. Had to pay close attention to the lyrics this time. Yes, a lot of meaning to it.
Thank you

My cats aren't spoilt, Just well loved.

When choosing a song for our first dance, we were looking for something that was 'us' and not used too often. We ended up choosing Better Together by Jack Johnson. Jack Johnson - Better Together Lyrics - YouTube
