East Coast Soul Wedding Performance

Elm Bank Wedding in Wellesley, MA

September 7, 2019

Emma & Fernando

Ensemble: Atlantic | Nine Piece

An exquisite wedding at the Elm Bank in Wellesley, MA where East Coast Soul's Atlantic ensemble found it nearly impossible to say goodbye to this particular group of guests!

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

Preprations for Emma & Fernando's Big Day

Our planning for the wedding began well ahead, with Emma & Fernando sharing their music and logistical preferences and vision with us for the wedding (we take our preparation process extremely seriously). Emma & Fernando were incredibly helpful during this advanced planning and a huge asset throughout.

Once the wedding arrived, East Coast Soul traveled to Wellesley, MA and carried out our normal load-in, set up, and sound check process 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 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 performing a blend 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 majority of wedding celebrations, East Coast Soul is asked to take care of MC services for the formal portions of the receptions. This Elm Bank Wedding was no different.

The couple’s First Dance

The newly married couple's first dance is traditionally one of the most unforgettable parts of the wedding. It's a chance for the bride and groom to take a moment for themselves. With this part of the evening complete, the guests and vendors took a break for dinner. After a quick break, East Coast Soul's Atlantic ensemble circled back to the stage.

Dance Party

East Coast Soul dance performances commonly kick off with vintage material. We've found this is a great way to get folks 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 transitioned 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 Emma & Fernando for having us at their beautiful September wedding at Elm Bank!
