Emma & Fernando

Ensemble: Atlantic | Nine Piece

A heartwarming wedding at the Elm Bank in Wellesley, MA where East Coast Soul's Atlantic ensemble had a kickass night of music!

East Coast Soul was blessed to be asked to join Emma & Fernando for their stunning Elm Bank Wedding in Wellesley, MA.

Preprations for Emma & Fernando's Big Day

Our preparations for the big day began many weeks prior, with Emma & Fernando offering a myriad of musical and logistical options with us for the big day (we take our preparation process extremely seriously). Emma & Fernando were happy to be a key part of 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. 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.

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 unwind after the intense emotions of the ceremony. We contribute by performing a variety of relaxed music for guests to enjoy. In this case, and featured music by artists such as Duke Ellington, Glenn Miller, and more.

Beautiful First Dance - The Gardens at Elm Bank Wedding

Reception

In a majority of wedding celebrations, we is asked to provide MC services for the formal portions of the wedding celebrations. 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 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 wedding complete, the guests and vendors took a break for dinner. After as short a break as possible, East Coast Soul's Atlantic ensemble returned to the stage.

Dance Party

our shows commonly kick off with vintage material. We've discovered this is an excellent approach to get folks up on the dance floor with songs they're familiar with. 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 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 Emma & Fernando for having us at their beautiful September wedding at Elm Bank!
