October 5, 2019

Hope & Daniel

Ensemble: Atlantic | Nine Piece

An inspiring 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 well ahead, with Hope & Daniel sharing their music and logistical preferences and vision with us for the wedding day (we take our preparation process extremely seriously). Hope & Daniel were heavily involved in this advanced planning and super helpful throughout.

Once the wedding day arrived, East Coast Soul traveled to Addison, VT and took care of the normal load-in, set up, and sound check process for An Affair By the Lake weddings. We get a lot of questions about the logistics of loading in to any given venue. 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 contribute by performing 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 provide MC services for the formal portions of the wedding 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 traditionally 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 wedding finished, the guests and vendors took a break for dinner. After as short a break as possible, East Coast Soul's Atlantic ensemble circled back to the stage.

Dance Party

East Coast Soul 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 know and love. Artists like Aretha Franklin, Marvin Gaye, Sam and Dave, and more dominated the outset of our performance. We then transitioned into playing tunes 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!
