A breathtaking wedding at the Twin Lake Village in New London, NH where East Coast Soul's Stax ensemble blew the roof off the place!
East Coast Soul was blessed to be asked to join Prita & Mac for their stunning Twin Lake Village Wedding in New London, NH.
Preprations for Prita & Mac's Big Day
Our preparations for the wedding began many weeks prior, with Prita & Mac sharing their music and logistical preferences and vision with us for the wedding (preparation is a key part of our process). Prita & Mac were happy to be a key part of this advanced planning and incredibly helpful throughout.
Once the wedding arrived, East Coast Soul traveled to New London, NH and took care of the normal load-in, set up, and sound check process for Twin Lake Village 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 relax after the heightened emotions of the ceremony. We contribute by providing a variety of relaxed music for guests to enjoy listening to. In this case, and featured music by artists such as Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, and more.
In a bulk of weddings, we is asked to handle MC services for the formal portions of the receptions. This Twin Lake Village Wedding was no different.
The couple’s First Dance
The groom and bride's first dance is traditionally one of the most emotional parts of the wedding. It's an opportunity for the bride and groom to take a moment for themselves. With this part of the wedding 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.
East Coast Soul performances often start with older material. We've discovered this is an excellent approach to get folks relaxed and dancing with songs they're familiar with. Artists like Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin, Marvin Gaye, and more dominated the outset of our performance. We then moved 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 Prita & Mac for having us at their beautiful September wedding at Twin Lake Village!
