October 5, 2019

Hope & Daniel

Ensemble: Atlantic | Nine Piece

A stunning wedding at the An Affair By the Lake in Addison, VT where East Coast Soul's Atlantic ensemble left absolutely everything out on the dance floor!

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 planning for the wedding day began many weeks prior, with Hope & Daniel sharing their music and logistical preferences and vision with us for the wedding day (preparation is a key part of our process). Hope & Daniel were happy to be a key part of this advanced planning and super helpful throughout.

Once the wedding day arrived, East Coast Soul traveled to Addison, VT and began our standard load-in and sound check for An Affair By the Lake weddings. We're often asked about our process for loading in and sound checking at various venues. 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 requested to perform cocktail hour music. Cocktail hour is a great opportunity for the bride and groom to unwind after the intense emotions of the ceremony. We do our part by providing a blend of relaxed music for guests to enjoy. In this case, and featured music by artists such as Duke Ellington, Glenn Miller, and more.

Reception

In a lion's share of receptions, we is asked to handle MC services for the formal portions of the celebrations. This An Affair By the Lake Wedding was no different.

The groom and bride’s First Dance

The couple's first dance is invariably one of the most unforgettable parts of the wedding day. It's a chance for the bride and groom to take a moment for themselves. With this portion of the evening finished, the guests and vendors took a break for dinner. After a quick break, East Coast Soul's Atlantic ensemble returned to the stage.

Dance Party

East Coast Soul dance performances often start with older material. We've found this is a great way to get guests relaxed and dancing with songs they're familiar with. Artists like Aretha Franklin, Marvin Gaye, Sam and Dave, and more dominated the outset of our performance. We then transitioned into performing music by artists like Whitney Houston, Prince, Michael Jackson 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!
