An Affair By the Lake Wedding in Addison, VT

October 5, 2019

Hope & Daniel

Ensemble: Atlantic | Nine Piece

A lovely wedding at the An Affair By the Lake in Addison, VT where East Coast Soul's Atlantic ensemble absolutely brought the house down!

East Coast Soul was fortunate to be brought to join Hope & Daniel for their stunning An Affair By the Lake Wedding in Addison, VT.

Preprations for Hope & Daniel's Big Day

Our groundwork for the big day began well ahead, with Hope & Daniel offering a myriad of musical and logistical options with us for the big day (we always leave an excess of time for preparation). Hope & Daniel were heavily involved in this advanced planning and incredibly helpful throughout.

Once the big day arrived, East Coast Soul traveled to Addison, VT and carried out our normal load-in, set up, and sound check process for An Affair By the Lake weddings. Our process for loading in and setting up at any given venue is a big part of our preparation process. This is a part of the day that we take seriously, spending extra time to avoid rushing, and ensuring our gear is properly tuned for the room.

Ceremony

In this case, East Coast Soul was not involved with couple's ceremony, with those arrangements having already been taken care of.

Cocktail Hour

As is often the case, East Coast Soul was asked to provide cocktail hour music. Cocktail hour is a great opportunity for the bride and groom to relax after the intense emotions of the ceremony. We contribute by performing a blend of relaxed music for guests to listend to. In this case, and featured music by artists such as Duke Ellington, Glenn Miller, and more.

Reception

In a majority of receptions, East Coast Soul is asked to take care of MC services for the formal portions of the weddings. This An Affair By the Lake Wedding was no different.

The bride and groom’s First Dance

The bride and groom's first dance is invariably one of the most meaningful parts of the big day. It's an opportunity for the bride and groom to take a moment for themselves. With this part of the wedding finished, the guests and vendors took a break for dinner. After a super brief break, East Coast Soul's Atlantic ensemble circled back to the stage.

Dance Party

East Coast Soul performances often start with older material. We've found this is a great way to get folks relaxed and dancing with songs they know and love. Artists like Sam and Dave, The Temptations, Earth Wind & Fire, and more dominated the outset of our performance. We then transitioned into performing music by artists like Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, Prince and more. Finally, we ended the night performing contemporary material that everyone could sing along with.

Guests danced non-stop from beginning to end, and we limited our breaks to ensure people had as much time to dance as possible.

Thanks so much to Hope & Daniel for having us at their beautiful October wedding at An Affair By the Lake!
