East Coast Soul was fortunate to be brought to join Kate & Jeffrey for their stunning Riverside Farm Wedding in Pittsfield, VT.

Preprations for Kate & Jeffrey's Big Day

Kate and Our groundwork for the wedding day began months in advance, with Kate & Jeffrey expressing a variety of musical and logistical preferences with us for the wedding day (we take our preparation process extremely seriously). Kate & Jeffrey were heavily involved in this advanced planning and incredibly helpful throughout.

Once the wedding day arrived, East Coast Soul traveled to Pittsfield, VT and took care of the normal load-in, set up, and sound check process for Riverside Farm weddings. Our process for loading in and setting up at any given venue is a big part of our preparation process. 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.

Cocktail Hour

As is often the case, East Coast Soul was requested to perform 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 providing a blend of relaxed music for guests to listend to. In this case, cocktail hour took place Tented area adjacent to the barn. We provided a Sax/Keys/Bass Trio and and featured music by artists such as Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, and more.

Bride Lifted in the Air - Riverside Farm Wedding


In a bulk of celebrations, we is asked to take care of MC services for the formal portions of the wedding celebrations. This Riverside Farm Wedding was no different. The bridal party danced in to the sounds of You Make My Dreams by Hall & Oates with everyone cheering them on.

The groom and bride’s First Dance

The groom and bride's first dance is invariably one of the most unforgettable parts of the wedding day. It's a chance for the bride and groom to take a moment for themselves. Kate & Jeffrey danced to How Sweet It Is - Marvin Gaye, which everyone thoroughly enjoyed. With this portion of the wedding finished, 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.

Dance Party

As part of our preparation process, we like to get a sense of what the bride and groom are excited to hear. Kate & Jeffrey Were a huge help here, giving us a ton of great input. Toto - Africa (the groom’s college buddies bonded over this one) Journey - Don't Stop Believin’ (groom will join on guitar, will bring his own guitar and cable) The Isley Brothers - Shout (last song of the night) Motown Whitney Houston Beyonce Justin Timberlake 90’s/2000’s Hall & Oates

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 Kate & Jeffrey for having us at their beautiful June wedding at Riverside Farm! And thank you to Sabin Gratz for sharing these beautiful photos with us!
