A stunning wedding at the Twin Lake Village in New London, NH where East Coast Soul's Stax ensemble left absolutely everything out on the dance floor!
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 groundwork for the big day began many weeks prior, with Prita & Mac expressing a variety of musical and logistical preferences with us for the big day (we take our preparation process extremely seriously). Prita & Mac were happy to be a key part of this advanced planning and incredibly helpful throughout.
Once the big day 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. We get a lot of questions about the logistics of loading in to any given venue. 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 common, 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 heightened emotions of the ceremony. We contribute by providing a blend 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 lion's share of celebrations, East Coast Soul is asked to take care of MC services for the formal portions of the wedding celebrations. This Twin Lake Village Wedding was no different.
The bride and groom’s First Dance
The bride and groom's first dance is invariably 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 part of the evening finished, the guests and vendors took a break for dinner. After a quick break, East Coast Soul's Stax ensemble returned to the stage.
East Coast Soul dance performances often start with older material. We've discovered this is an excellent approach 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 beginning of our set list. We then moved 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 Prita & Mac for having us at their beautiful September wedding at Twin Lake Village!
