A WALK TO RE­MEM­BER

Martha Stewart Weddings - - THE PLANNER -

The bride’s mom, Regina, had urged a 9-year-old Risa to learn Pachel­bel’s “Canon in D” on the pi­ano, hop­ing one day she would walk down the aisle to it. Young Risa’s re­sponse: “No way!” And 26 years later, she still had a pen­chant for the non­tra­di­tional. Dur­ing the cer­e­mony and cock­tail hour, a string quar­tet played songs by pop artists—Bey­oncé, Phar­rell Wil­liams, Sam Smith. But when Risa got to the top of the aisle, the pro­ces­sional melded seam­lessly from Tay­lor Swift into “Canon in D.”
