Stone Mountain Arts Center Wedding in Brownfield, ME

December 2, 2017

Emily & Trevor

Ensemble: Soulsville | Eight Piece

A heartwarming wedding at the Stone Mountain Arts Center in Brownfield, ME where East Coast Soul's Soulsville ensemble found it nearly impossible to say goodbye to this particular group of guests!

East Coast Soul was fortunate to be asked to join Emily & Trevor for their stunning Stone Mountain Arts Center Wedding in Brownfield, ME.

Preprations for Emily & Trevor's Big Day

Our groundwork for the wedding day began months in advance, with Emily & Trevor offering a myriad of musical and logistical options with us for the wedding day (preparation is a key part of our process). Emily & Trevor 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 Brownfield, ME and moved swiftly through our standard load-in, set up, and sound check process for Stone Mountain Arts Center 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.

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 wonderful chance for the bride and groom to unwind after the heightened emotions of the ceremony. We contribute by performing a blend of relaxed music for guests to enjoy listening to. In this case, and featured music by artists such as John Coltrane, Miles Davies, and more.

Reception

In a majority of wedding celebrations, the band is asked to handle MC services for the formal portions of the wedding celebrations. This Stone Mountain Arts Center Wedding was no different.

The groom and bride’s First Dance

The newly married couple's first dance is traditionally 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. With this part of the evening 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

East Coast Soul shows 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 Marvin Gaye, Sam and Dave, The Temptations, and more dominated the outset of our performance. We then transitioned into performing music 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 Emily & Trevor for having us at their beautiful December wedding at Stone Mountain Arts Center!
