Oops. "Always And Forever" was recorded by Luther Vandross.

Several popular wedding songs here:
Something That We Do (Clint Black)
popular love song lyrics from last few decades: A - F
Years From Now (R Cook/C Cochran)
When I Said "I Do" (Clint Black)
(Forever Yours) Faithfully - by Journey
I Could Not Ask For More
Me And You (K. Chesney)
This Is The Night
Truly (Lionel Richie)

Love Of My Life (Dave Matthews Band)
Love Of My Life (Jim Brickman)
I Know How The River Feels
Look What Love Has Done (R. Mathes, S. Lewis)
Could I Have This Dance (For The Rest Of My Life)
Everything I Have

Other popular wedding songs (some kind of overused):
Looking Through The Eyes Of Love (Carole Bayer Sager & Marvin Hamlisch)
To Each His Own (another oldie that's been covered recently by contemporary artists)
Amazed (sung by Lonestar)
Endless Love (sung by Lionel Richie and Diana Ross)
The Prayer (Carole Bayer Sager & David Foster)
The Rose (by Amanda McBroom, recorded by Bette Midler)
Unchained Melody (On the charts in the 1950s, '60s, '90s, and 2000s)
Hawaiian Wedding Song
Ebb Tide - another standard
Not as "folky" as some of Tom's others, and a great wedding song:
Outward Bound (Tom Paxton)

And I know you're not looking for folk songs, but you really should check out John Prine's song (duet with Nanci Griffith, I think) "In Spite Of Ourselves"   (if only for the reception).
