It was on this date in 1858 that Felix Mendelssohn's "Wedding March" was first played at the royal marriage of Princess Victoria Adelaide Mary Louisa, the daughter of Queen Victoria. This wedding started the practice of a full choral procession from the church entrance. And it was on this date in 1949 that the first Emmy Awards were held at the Hollywood Athletic Club.
