Elm Bank Wedding in Wellesley, MA

September 7, 2019

Emma & Fernando

Ensemble: Atlantic | Nine Piece

A breathtaking wedding at the Elm Bank in Wellesley, MA where East Coast Soul's Atlantic ensemble blew the roof off the place!

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

Once the wedding day 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. 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 common, 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 do our part by providing 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.

Reception

In a bulk of receptions, East Coast Soul is asked to take care of 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 almost always one of the most meaningful parts of the wedding day. It's an opportunity for the bride and groom to take a moment for themselves. With this portion of the evening complete, the guests and vendors took a break for dinner. After a super brief break, East Coast Soul's Atlantic ensemble circled back to the stage.

Dance Party

our shows often start with older material. We've discovered this is an excellent approach to get folks relaxed and dancing 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 Emma & Fernando for having us at their beautiful September wedding at Elm Bank!
