An unbelievable August wedding at the The Coonamessett in Falmouth, MA where East Coast Soul's Stax ensemble laid down a truly unforgettable performance!

East Coast Soul was blessed to be brought to join Kristy & Christian for their stunning The Coonamessett Wedding in Falmouth, MA.

Preprations for Kristy & Christian's Big Day

Our preparations for the wedding day began many weeks prior, with Kristy & Christian expressing a variety of musical and logistical preferences with us for the wedding day (preparation is a key part of our process). Kristy & Christian were heavily involved in this advanced planning and a huge asset throughout.

Once the wedding day arrived, East Coast Soul traveled to Falmouth, MA and moved swiftly through our standard load-in, set up, and sound check process for The Coonamessett weddings. Being prepared for load-in and set-up at any given venue is a critical part of our workflow. 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 wonderful chance for the bride and groom to relax after the heightened emotions of the ceremony. We contribute by performing a variety 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 lion's share of receptions, the band is asked to handle MC services for the formal portions of the celebrations. This The Coonamessett Wedding was no different.

The bride and groom’s First Dance

The newly married couple's first dance is almost always one of the most unforgettable parts of the wedding day. It's an opportunity for the bride and groom to take a moment for themselves. With this portion of the evening complete, the guests and vendors took a break for dinner. After as short a break as possible, East Coast Soul's Stax ensemble circled back to the stage.

Dance Party

East Coast Soul dance performances commonly kick off with vintage material. We've discovered this is an excellent approach to get everyone up on the dance floor with songs they know and love. Artists like Sam and Dave, The Temptations, Earth Wind & Fire, and more dominated the beginning of our set list. We then moved 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 Kristy & Christian for having us at their beautiful August wedding at The Coonamessett! And thank you to Dan Aguirre for sharing these beautiful photos with us!
