A beautiful June wedding at the The Liberty Hotel in Boston, MA where East Coast Soul's Stax ensemble had an amazing time!

East Coast Soul was blessed to be asked to join Abby & Peter for their stunning The Liberty Hotel Wedding in Boston, MA.

Preprations for Abby & Peter's Big Day

Our groundwork for the wedding began well ahead, with Abby & Peter sharing their music and logistical preferences and vision with us for the wedding (preparation is a key part of our process). Abby & Peter were incredibly helpful during this advanced planning and incredibly helpful throughout.

Once the wedding arrived, East Coast Soul traveled to Boston, MA and took care of the normal load-in, set up, and sound check process for The Liberty Hotel weddings. We're often asked about our process for loading in and sound checking at various venues. 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 intense emotions of the ceremony. We do our part by performing a variety of relaxed music for guests to listend to. In this case, and featured music by artists such as John Coltrane, Miles Davies, and more.

Reception

In a majority of weddings, we is asked to handle MC services for the formal portions of the receptions. This The Liberty Hotel Wedding was no different.

The bride and groom’s First Dance

The bride and groom's first dance is consistently one of the most meaningful parts of the wedding. It's an opportunity for the bride and groom to take a moment for themselves. With this part of the wedding complete, the guests and vendors took a break for dinner. After a quick break, East Coast Soul's Stax ensemble circled back to the stage.

Dance Party

East Coast Soul shows often start with older material. We've found this is a great way 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 playing tunes 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 Abby & Peter for having us at their beautiful June wedding at The Liberty Hotel! And thank you to Shana Sureck for sharing these beautiful photos with us!
