Emma & Fernando

Ensemble: Atlantic | Nine Piece

A breathtaking wedding at the Elm Bank in Wellesley, MA where East Coast Soul's Atlantic ensemble had an amazing time!

East Coast Soul was fortunate to be asked 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 months in advance, with Emma & Fernando sharing their music and logistical preferences and vision with us for the wedding (we always leave an excess of time for preparation). Emma & Fernando were incredibly helpful during this advanced planning and super helpful throughout.

Once the wedding 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 common, East Coast Soul was asked to provide cocktail hour music. Cocktail hour is a great opportunity for the bride and groom to relax after the intense emotions of the ceremony. We do our part 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 bulk of celebrations, we is asked to provide MC services for the formal portions of the celebrations. This Elm Bank Wedding was no different.

The groom and bride’s First Dance

The groom and bride's first dance is traditionally one of the most emotional parts of the wedding. 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 performances 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 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 Emma & Fernando for having us at their beautiful September wedding at Elm Bank!
