Ideas for a wedding Bible reading that isn't 1st Corinthians 13?

Two friends of mine are getting married this summer in an Episcopalian service. Friend and partner both think 1st Corinthians 13 ("If I have not love, I am nothing") is overused at weddings and would like a different Bible reading. I suggested the Song of Solomon, but they seem to think it's a little explicit for a family crowd.
Neither party is super-religious; it's more a case of having been raised Episcopalian and feeling at home in that ritual setting. It's a second marriage for both, if there are any passages especially relevant to that.
Many thanks, hivemind!
