When Martha Stewart Weddings special projects editor, Anthony Luscia, married his partner of 16 years, Rusty James, they called on music to set the tone of their Brooklyn event. It’s no wonder then that the duo ended up with a killer playlist (and video). The soundtrack—a hybrid of Anthony’s love of ’80s music and Rusty’s preference for classics and Broadway tunes—also included a hit by Earth, Wind & Fire. Which one? “September,” in honor of the wedding date: September 21, 2013.
