A beautiful August wedding at the The Coonamessett in Falmouth, MA where East Coast Soul's Stax ensemble had a kickass night of music!

East Coast Soul was grateful to be invited 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 began months in advance, with Kristy & Christian expressing a variety of musical and logistical preferences with us for the wedding (we take our preparation process extremely seriously). Kristy & Christian were happy to be a key part of this advanced planning and super helpful throughout.

Once the wedding arrived, East Coast Soul traveled to Falmouth, MA and began our standard load-in and sound check 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 requested to perform 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 enjoy listening to. In this case, and featured music by artists such as Duke Ellington, Glenn Miller, and more.

Reception

In a lion's share of wedding celebrations, East Coast Soul is asked to handle MC services for the formal portions of the receptions. This The Coonamessett Wedding was no different.

The bride and groom’s First Dance

The bride and groom's first dance is traditionally one of the most meaningful parts of the wedding. It's a chance for the bride and groom to take a moment for themselves. With this part of the wedding complete, the guests and vendors took a break for dinner. After a quick break, East Coast Soul's Stax ensemble returned to the stage.

Dance Party

our dance performances commonly kick off with vintage material. We've discovered this is an excellent approach to get guests relaxed and dancing 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 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 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!
