Down To The River by Meg Keene I know you all saw this freaking incredible wedding on Once Wed, but I *had* to talk about how much I loved that they walked down the forest path (!) to their beach wedding to a blue grass band playing I Went Down To The River To Pray. I love the song, I love how grounded it is, and I love how beautifully symbolic it is for a wedding by a body of water. We need more creative use of old standards in weddings, so say I! And can I mention how much I adore the new indie wedding trend of Bluegrass bands? Photo by Braedon Photography Meg Keene Founder & Editor-In-Chief Meg is the Founder and EIC of APW.
