Commencement of Collaboration:

We were so grateful to have received the invitation to join Michaela and Kyle for their enchanting wedding at the Aldrich Mansion in Warwick, RI. This celebration of love unfolded into a symphony of elegance, from the early planning stages to the last dance.

Initial Interactions:

The partnership between Michaela, Kyle, and East Coast Soul commenced in July 2021, with the couple reaching out to curate the perfect musical journey for their special day. The collaborative efforts during the planning phase were nothing short of extraordinary, as Michaela and Kyle actively contributed ideas and options, laying the foundation for a seamless wedding experience.

Day-of Preparations:

As the wedding day dawned, East Coast Soul made its way to Warwick, RI, meticulously executing the load-in, set up, and sound check at the Aldrich Mansion. The band’s commitment to excellence was evident in the dedicated time allocated for setup and fine-tuning, ensuring an unparalleled musical atmosphere for the celebration.

Harmony in the Chapel:

The ceremonial proceedings took place at the Chapel at Aldrich Mansion, commencing at 4:00 pm. East Coast Soul played a pivotal role in setting the tone with a Solo Piano performance and Single Mic for speeches. Prelude music, thoughtfully performed by the band, served as a melodic welcome for arriving guests, creating an atmosphere of serenity and anticipation for Michaela and Kyle’s exchange of vows.

Elegant Cocktail Hour:

The transition to the cocktail hour was seamless, with East Coast Soul providing a Sax/Keys/Bass Trio on the outdoor patio and back steps of the mansion. Guests indulged in the refined sounds of classic tunes by revered artists like Frank Sinatra and Ella Fitzgerald, elevating the sophistication of the celebration.

Formal Reception Unveiled:

In a departure from the usual formalities, the reception took a unique turn. The absence of formal introductions allowed Michaela and Kyle to make a grand entrance, dancing to the upbeat rhythms of “This Will Be (An Everlasting Love)” by Natalie Cole, setting the stage for a joyous celebration. The reception unfolded with the groom and bride’s first dance, a poignant moment set to the romantic strains of “You Are The Best Thing” by Ray LaMontagne.

Dance Extravaganza Unleashed:

With the formalities gracefully executed, Michaela and Kyle steered East Coast Soul through an eclectic playlist, sharing their preferences that included must-play tracks and guest requests. From the infectious beats of Blink 182’s “All The Small Things” to the timeless allure of Whitney Houston’s “I Want To Dance With Somebody,” the dance floor remained a vibrant sea of celebration, seamlessly blending vintage and contemporary hits.

Heartfelt Appreciation:

East Coast Soul extends heartfelt gratitude to Michaela and Kyle for entrusting us with the soundtrack of their beautiful June wedding at Aldrich Mansion. A special acknowledgment to Yaritz Colon for immortalizing these timeless moments through the lens. Here’s to a lifetime of love, elegance, and the enduring memories crafted on the dance floor for the newlyweds! May your journey together be as grand and harmonious as your remarkable celebration.
