An amazing August wedding at the Elm Bank in Wellesley, MA where East Coast Soul's Soulsville ensemble blew the roof off the place!

East Coast Soul was blessed to be asked to join this beautiful couple for their stunning Elm Bank Wedding in Wellesley, MA.

Preprations for the couple's Big Day

Our preparations for the big day began well ahead, with the bride and groom sharing their music and logistical preferences and vision with us for the big day (we always leave an excess of time for preparation). The bride and groom were heavily involved in this advanced planning and super helpful throughout.

Once the big day arrived, East Coast Soul traveled to Wellesley, MA and began our standard load-in and sound check for Elm Bank 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 heightened emotions of the ceremony. We do our part by providing a variety of relaxed music for guests to enjoy. In this case, and featured music by artists such as Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, and more.

Reception

In a bulk of receptions, East Coast Soul is asked to handle MC services for the formal portions of the receptions. This Elm Bank Wedding was no different.

The bride and groom’s First Dance

The bride and groom's first dance is consistently one of the most unforgettable parts of the big day. It's an opportunity for the bride and groom to take a moment for themselves. With this part of the evening finished, the guests and vendors took a break for dinner. After a quick break, East Coast Soul's Soulsville ensemble returned to the stage.

Dance Party

our performances often start with older material. We've found this is a great way to get folks relaxed and dancing with songs they're familiar with. Artists like Sam and Dave, The Temptations, Earth Wind & Fire, and more dominated the outset of our performance. We then transitioned 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 this beautiful couple for having us at their beautiful August wedding at Elm Bank! And thank you to Lovely Valentine for sharing these beautiful photos with us!
