An incredible August wedding at the The Coonamessett in Falmouth, MA where East Coast Soul's Stax ensemble had a night to remember!
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 planning for the wedding day began well ahead, 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 began our standard load-in and sound check 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.
In this case, East Coast Soul was not involved with couple's ceremony, with those arrangements having already been taken care of.
As is common, East Coast Soul was asked to provide cocktail hour music. Cocktail hour is a wonderful chance 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 listening to. In this case, and featured music by artists such as Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, and more.
In a bulk of celebrations, we is asked to take care of MC services for the formal portions of the receptions. This The Coonamessett Wedding was no different.
The bride and groom’s First Dance
The newly married couple's first dance is traditionally one of the most emotional 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 finished, the guests and vendors took a break for dinner. After a super brief break, East Coast Soul's Stax ensemble circled back to the stage.
our performances often start with older material. We've found this is a great way to get everyone relaxed and dancing with songs they know and love. Artists like Stevie Wonder, The Temptations, Earth Wind & Fire, and more dominated the beginning of our set list. We then transitioned into playing tunes 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!
