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

Preprations for Kate & Jeffrey's Big Day

Kate and Our planning for the wedding day began well ahead, with Kate & Jeffrey offering a myriad of musical and logistical options with us for the wedding day (we take our preparation process extremely seriously). Kate & Jeffrey were happy to be a key part of this advanced planning and a huge asset 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. 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 requested to perform cocktail hour music. Cocktail hour is a wonderful chance for the bride and groom to relax after the heightened emotions of the ceremony. We do our part by providing a blend of relaxed music for guests to enjoy listening 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 John Coltrane, Miles Davies, and more.

Riverside Farm Wedding

Reception

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

The groom and bride’s First Dance

The bride and groom's first dance is traditionally one of the most emotional 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 a super brief break, East Coast Soul's Soulsville ensemble circled back 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!
