A heartwarming wedding at the Twin Lake Village in New London, NH where East Coast Soul's Stax ensemble had an incredibly time that will *not* soon be forgotten!
East Coast Soul was blessed to be invited 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 wedding day began well ahead, with Prita & Mac expressing a variety of musical and logistical preferences with us for the wedding day (we always leave an excess of time for preparation). Prita & Mac 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 New London, NH and moved swiftly through our standard load-in, set up, and sound check process for Twin Lake Village 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.
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 wonderful chance for the bride and groom to relax after the intense emotions of the ceremony. We do our part by performing a variety of relaxed music for guests to enjoy. In this case, and featured music by artists such as Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, and more.
In a majority of wedding celebrations, we is asked to provide MC services for the formal portions of the wedding celebrations. This Twin Lake Village Wedding was no different.
The groom and bride’s First Dance
The newly married couple's first dance is consistently one of the most emotional parts of the wedding day. 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 shows commonly kick off with vintage material. We've found this is a great way to get folks relaxed and dancing with songs they know and love. Artists like Aretha Franklin, Marvin Gaye, Sam and Dave, and more dominated the beginning of our set list. 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 Prita & Mac for having us at their beautiful September wedding at Twin Lake Village!
