An unbelievable wedding at the Mountain Top Inn & Resort Wedding in Chittenden, VT where East Coast Soul's Soulsville ensemble had the guests screaming for an encore!
East Coast Soul was blessed to be brought to join Hayley & Samuel for their stunning Mountain Top Inn & Resort Wedding Wedding in Chittenden, VT.
Preprations for Hayley & Samuel's Big Day
Our planning for the wedding day began well ahead, with Hayley & Samuel sharing their music and logistical preferences and vision with us for the wedding day (we take our preparation process extremely seriously). Hayley & Samuel were incredibly helpful during this advanced planning and a huge asset throughout.
Once the wedding day arrived, East Coast Soul traveled to Chittenden, VT and moved swiftly through our standard load-in, set up, and sound check process for Mountain Top Inn & Resort Wedding 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.
In this case, East Coast Soul was not involved with couple's ceremony, with those arrangements having already been taken care of.
As is often the case, East Coast Soul was asked to provide cocktail hour music. Cocktail hour is a wonderful chance for the bride and groom to unwind after the heightened emotions of the ceremony. We do our part by providing 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.
In a bulk of wedding celebrations, the band is asked to handle MC services for the formal portions of the wedding celebrations. This Mountain Top Inn & Resort Wedding Wedding was no different.
The groom and bride’s First Dance
The newly married couple'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 part of the evening complete, the guests and vendors took a break for dinner. After as short a break as possible, East Coast Soul's Soulsville ensemble returned to the stage.
our performances often start with older material. We've found this is a great way to get everyone relaxed and dancing with songs they're familiar with. 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 Hayley & Samuel for having us at their beautiful June wedding at Mountain Top Inn & Resort Wedding!
