Indie + Music Festival Wedding Songs

Indie + Music Festival Inspired Wedding SongsAfter kicking off the spring and summer season, which I’ve declared my summer of music, with a concert by the beautiful Ana Moura, then the awesome Firefly Music Festival, Alexia Cara, and Coldplay, I’ve been listening to a lot of really amazing music. Many of my favorite songs, being performed live, gave me the real sense and feelings of these songs. And you know what, there are so many beautiful, fun, and unique songs about love. Since you all loved my first unique wedding song post so much, I needed to share to share another one inspired by some of my favorite Indie music festival songs. I will say, most of these songs are my all-time favorites, I could see myself wanting to use a lot of these choices for my own wedding. They work perfectly for a boho, romantic, music loving or outdoor wedding. Soundtrack to a weekend mountain wedding like Kate Bosworth’s, I think so. But these songs work beautifully no matter how you use them throughout your wedding, or make great choices to include in your videography too!

What are some of your favorite unique love songs that would perfect for a wedding?
