October 5, 2019

Hope & Daniel

Ensemble: Atlantic | Nine Piece

A charming wedding at the An Affair By the Lake in Addison, VT where East Coast Soul's Atlantic ensemble had the guests screaming for an encore!

East Coast Soul was grateful 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 preparations for the wedding day began many weeks prior, with Hope & Daniel expressing a variety of musical and logistical preferences with us for the wedding day (we take our preparation process extremely seriously). Hope & Daniel were happy to be a key part of this advanced planning and incredibly 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. 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 requested to perform cocktail hour music. Cocktail hour is a great opportunity for the bride and groom to unwind after the heightened emotions of the ceremony. We do our part by providing a blend of relaxed music for guests to enjoy listening to. In this case, and featured music by artists such as Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, and more.

Reception

In a majority of receptions, the band is asked to handle MC services for the formal portions of the celebrations. 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 consistently one of the most meaningful 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 as short a break as possible, East Coast Soul's Atlantic ensemble returned to the stage.

Dance Party

our shows often start with older material. We've discovered this is an excellent approach to get guests up on the dance floor with songs they're familiar with. Artists like Sam and Dave, The Temptations, Earth Wind & Fire, and more dominated the beginning of our set list. We then moved 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!
