A charming October wedding at the Spencer-Peirce-Little Farm in Newbury, MA where East Coast Soul's Stax ensemble absolutely brought the house down!
East Coast Soul was blessed to be brought to join Haley & Patrick for their stunning Spencer-Peirce-Little Farm Wedding in Newbury, MA.
Preprations for Haley & Patrick's Big Day
Our groundwork for the big day began many weeks prior, with Haley & Patrick offering a myriad of musical and logistical options with us for the big day (preparation is a key part of our process). Haley & Patrick were incredibly helpful during this advanced planning and super helpful throughout.
Once the big day arrived, East Coast Soul traveled to Newbury, MA and moved swiftly through our standard load-in, set up, and sound check process for Spencer-Peirce-Little Farm 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.
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 great opportunity for the bride and groom to unwind after the intense emotions of the ceremony. We do our part by performing a blend of relaxed music for guests to listend to. In this case, and featured music by artists such as Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, and more.
In a majority of celebrations, the band is asked to handle MC services for the formal portions of the wedding celebrations. This Spencer-Peirce-Little Farm 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 big day. 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 as short a break as possible, East Coast Soul's Stax ensemble returned to the stage.
our shows commonly kick off with vintage material. We've discovered this is an excellent approach to get everyone relaxed and dancing with songs they're familiar with. Artists like Stevie Wonder, The Temptations, Earth Wind & Fire, and more dominated the outset of our performance. 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 Haley & Patrick for having us at their beautiful October wedding at Spencer-Peirce-Little Farm! And thank you to Emily Delamater for sharing these beautiful photos with us!
