An amazing May wedding at the Mountain Top Inn & Resort Wedding in Chittenden, VT where East Coast Soul's Stax ensemble laid down a truly unforgettable performance!

East Coast Soul was blessed to be brought to join Keely & John for their stunning Mountain Top Inn & Resort Wedding Wedding in Chittenden, VT.

Preprations for Keely & John's Big Day

Our preparations for the wedding began months in advance, with Keely & John sharing their music and logistical preferences and vision with us for the wedding (we always leave an excess of time for preparation). Keely & John were heavily involved in this advanced planning and incredibly helpful throughout.

Once the wedding arrived, East Coast Soul traveled to Chittenden, VT and began our standard load-in and sound check for Mountain Top Inn & Resort Wedding 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 unwind after the heightened emotions of the ceremony. We contribute by providing a variety 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 lion's share of receptions, we is asked to take care of MC services for the formal portions of the receptions. This Mountain Top Inn & Resort Wedding Wedding was no different.

The groom and bride’s First Dance

The bride and groom's first dance is invariably one of the most emotional parts of the wedding. It's a chance 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 Stax ensemble circled back to the stage.

Dance Party

East Coast Soul dance performances often start with older material. We've found this is a great way to get everyone up on the dance floor with songs they're familiar with. Artists like Stevie Wonder, The Temptations, Earth Wind & Fire, and more dominated the beginning of our set list. 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 Keely & John for having us at their beautiful May wedding at Mountain Top Inn & Resort Wedding! And thank you to Garrentee Photography for sharing these beautiful photos with us!
