Samantha & Winston

Ensemble: Atlantic | Eight Piece

A breathtaking wedding at the Waterville Valley in Waterville Valley, NH where East Coast Soul's Atlantic ensemble just crushed it!

East Coast Soul was fortunate to be brought to join Samantha & Winston for their stunning Waterville Valley Wedding in Waterville Valley, NH.

Preprations for Samantha & Winston's Big Day

Our preparations for the wedding day began well ahead, with Samantha & Winston offering a myriad of musical and logistical options with us for the wedding day (preparation is a key part of our process). Samantha & Winston were incredibly helpful during this advanced planning and incredibly helpful throughout.

Once the wedding day arrived, East Coast Soul traveled to Waterville Valley, NH and moved swiftly through our standard load-in, set up, and sound check process for Waterville Valley 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.

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 great opportunity for the bride and groom to unwind after the intense emotions of the ceremony. We do our part by performing a blend of relaxed music for guests to enjoy. In this case, and featured music by artists such as Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, and more.

Reception

In a lion's share of weddings, East Coast Soul is asked to take care of MC services for the formal portions of the weddings. This Waterville Valley Wedding was no different.

The groom and bride’s First Dance

The groom and bride's first dance is invariably 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 portion of the wedding complete, the guests and vendors took a break for dinner. After as short a break as possible, East Coast Soul's Atlantic ensemble circled back to the stage.

Dance Party

East Coast Soul dance performances commonly kick off with vintage material. We've discovered this is an excellent approach to get folks relaxed and dancing with songs they're familiar with. Artists like Aretha Franklin, Marvin Gaye, Sam and Dave, and more dominated the beginning of our set list. We then moved into performing music 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 Samantha & Winston for having us at their beautiful October wedding at Waterville Valley!
