Stone Mountain Arts Center Wedding in Brownfield, ME

August 27, 2016

Ensemble: Stax | Eight Piece

An exquisite wedding at the Stone Mountain Arts Center in Brownfield, ME where East Coast Soul's Stax ensemble definitely made some new best friends!

East Coast Soul was blessed to be brought to join this beautiful couple for their stunning Stone Mountain Arts Center Wedding in Brownfield, ME.

Preprations for the couple's Big Day

Our planning for the wedding day began well ahead, with the bride and groom offering a myriad of musical and logistical options with us for the wedding day (preparation is a key part of our process). The bride and groom were heavily involved in 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. 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 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 contribute by performing a variety of relaxed music for guests to enjoy. In this case, and featured music by artists such as Duke Ellington, Glenn Miller, and more.

Reception

In a bulk of weddings, 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 bride and groom’s First Dance

The groom and bride's first dance is almost always 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. With this part of the wedding finished, the guests and vendors took a break for dinner. After a super brief break, East Coast Soul's Stax ensemble circled back to the stage.

Dance Party

our shows often start with older material. We've found this is a great way to get guests up on the dance floor with songs they know and love. Artists like Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin, Marvin Gaye, and more dominated the outset of our performance. We then transitioned into playing tunes 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 this beautiful couple for having us at their beautiful August wedding at Stone Mountain Arts Center!
