A heartwarming August wedding at the The Coonamessett in Falmouth, MA where East Coast Soul's Stax ensemble just crushed it!

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 groundwork for the big day began many weeks prior, with Kristy & Christian expressing a variety of musical and logistical preferences with us for the big day (we always leave an excess of time for preparation). Kristy & Christian were happy to be a key part of this advanced planning and incredibly helpful throughout.

Once the big day arrived, East Coast Soul traveled to Falmouth, MA and began our standard load-in and sound check for The Coonamessett 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 asked to provide 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 providing a variety of relaxed music for guests to enjoy. In this case, and featured music by artists such as John Coltrane, Miles Davies, and more.

Reception

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

The bride and groom’s First Dance

The couple's first dance is invariably one of the most emotional parts of the big 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 quick break, East Coast Soul's Stax ensemble returned to the stage.

Dance Party

our shows commonly kick off with vintage material. We've found this is a great way to get folks relaxed and dancing with songs they're familiar with. Artists like Marvin Gaye, Sam and Dave, The Temptations, and more dominated the outset of our performance. 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!
