An Affair By the Lake Wedding in Addison, VT

October 5, 2019

Hope & Daniel

Ensemble: Atlantic | Nine Piece

A beautiful wedding at the An Affair By the Lake in Addison, VT where East Coast Soul's Atlantic ensemble had an incredibly time that will *not* soon be forgotten!

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

Preprations for Hope & Daniel's Big Day

Our preparations for the wedding began months in advance, with Hope & Daniel expressing a variety of musical and logistical preferences with us for the wedding (we take our preparation process extremely seriously). Hope & Daniel were incredibly helpful during this advanced planning and incredibly helpful throughout.

Once the wedding 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 common, 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 providing a blend of relaxed music for guests to listend to. In this case, and featured music by artists such as Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, and more.

Reception

In a bulk of receptions, the band is asked to handle MC services for the formal portions of the wedding celebrations. This An Affair By the Lake Wedding was no different.

The groom and bride’s First Dance

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

Dance Party

East Coast Soul shows often start with older material. We've found this is a great way to get folks up on the dance floor with songs they know and love. Artists like Stevie Wonder, The Temptations, Earth Wind & Fire, and more dominated the beginning of our set list. We then moved into playing tunes 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!
