Looking for pop/rock suggestions for our destination wedding video

We're planning a video for our upcoming destination wedding, and are looking for good songs for the soundtrack. Something with a pop/rock/acoustic type of feel, an upbeat beginning, and if possible nuptial-appropriate/themed lyrics. Recent would be a plus, and preferably not something played often on the radio (I might need to contact the artist to use their music as well?).

A great example is Ben Rector's 'White Dress', featured at the start of this video: http://vimeo.com/12709377

I tried finding new indie artists on Pandora for this, but it's hard to browse a lot of songs without running into their song limits. Individual song suggestions are appreciated, but other ways to find new artists are welcome as well. Thanks in advance!

Not acoustic, but upbeat and indie: Go Places, by the New Pornographers. The studio version is much cleaner, sharper and, er, in-tune.

"Stay with me, go places/ Once more for the ages"- I have always thought this would make a great first dance at a reception, too (a waltz! how easy!).

I'm not sure if this is played often or not, but I've become very fond of "I'm Yours" by Jason Mraz - may try to sneak it onto our mostly swing based wedding set.

Not new, but poppy and sweet
