East Coast Soul Wedding Performance

Elm Bank Wedding in Wellesley, MA

August 18, 2018

Ensemble: Soulsville | Eight Piece
Photographer: Lovely Valentine |

An unbelievable August wedding at the Elm Bank in Wellesley, MA where East Coast Soul's Soulsville ensemble left absolutely everything out on the dance floor!

East Coast Soul was fortunate to be invited 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 many weeks prior, with the bride and groom sharing their music and logistical preferences and vision with us for the big day (we take our preparation process extremely seriously). The bride and groom were incredibly helpful during this advanced planning and a huge asset 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 common, East Coast Soul was requested to perform cocktail hour music. Cocktail hour is a wonderful chance for the bride and groom to unwind after the heightened emotions of the ceremony. We do our part by providing a variety of relaxed music for guests to enjoy listening to. In this case, and featured music by artists such as John Coltrane, Miles Davies, and more.

Reception

In a bulk of wedding celebrations, the band is asked to take care of MC services for the formal portions of the receptions. This Elm Bank Wedding was no different.

The groom and bride’s First Dance

The bride and groom's first dance is almost always one of the most unforgettable parts of the big day. It's a chance 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 super brief break, East Coast Soul's Soulsville ensemble returned to the stage.

Dance Party

East Coast Soul shows often start with older material. We've discovered this is an excellent approach to get guests up on the dance floor with songs they know and love. Artists like Stevie Wonder, The Temptations, Earth Wind & Fire, and more dominated the outset of our performance. 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 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!
