An incredible August wedding at the The Coonamessett in Falmouth, MA where East Coast Soul's Stax ensemble found it nearly impossible to say goodbye to this particular group of guests!

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

Preprations for Kristy & Christian's Big Day

Our planning for the wedding began well ahead, with Kristy & Christian offering a myriad of musical and logistical options with us for the wedding (we take our preparation process extremely seriously). Kristy & Christian were heavily involved in this advanced planning and incredibly helpful throughout.

Once the wedding arrived, East Coast Soul traveled to Falmouth, MA and carried out our normal load-in, set up, and sound check process for The Coonamessett 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 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 do our part by performing a blend of relaxed music for guests to listend to. In this case, and featured music by artists such as Duke Ellington, Glenn Miller, 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 groom and bride’s First Dance

The couple's first dance is almost always one of the most unforgettable parts of the wedding. 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 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 guests up on the dance floor with songs they're familiar with. Artists like Marvin Gaye, Sam and Dave, The Temptations, and more dominated the beginning of our set list. We then moved into performing music 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 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!
