An incredible 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 fortunate to be brought to join Prita & Mac for their stunning Twin Lake Village Wedding in New London, NH.
Preprations for Prita & Mac's Big Day
Our planning for the wedding day began well ahead, with Prita & Mac offering a myriad of musical and logistical options with us for the wedding day (preparation is a key part of our process). Prita & Mac were heavily involved in this advanced planning and incredibly helpful 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. 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.
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 wonderful chance for the bride and groom to relax after the intense emotions of the ceremony. We contribute by providing a variety of relaxed music for guests to listend to. In this case, and featured music by artists such as Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, and more.
In a lion's share of weddings, East Coast Soul is asked to handle 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 newly married couple's first dance is consistently one of the most unforgettable parts of the wedding day. It's an opportunity for the bride and groom to take a moment for themselves. With this portion of the evening complete, the guests and vendors took a break for dinner. After as short a break as possible, East Coast Soul's Stax ensemble circled back to the stage.
our 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 Marvin Gaye, Sam and Dave, The Temptations, 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 Prita & Mac for having us at their beautiful September wedding at Twin Lake Village!
