Samoset Resort Wedding in July
Lindsay and Kevin’s wedding was a dream. Not only do you want your wedding day to go smoothly, you wish for happy guests, great energy, and a packed dance floor. That is exactly what Lindsay and Kevin’s wedding felt like at the Samoset Resort. Wonderful couple, incredible energy, fun guests and amazing vendor team that made it all happen. We are beyond thrilled that this sweet couple chose the Samoset Resort for their destination wedding which we love, our band, and a great team of professionals. It was pure magic! July 30th was gorgeous and couldn’t have been more perfect on the Coast of Maine for an outdoor ceremony and cocktail party for Lindsay and Kevin along with 200 guests to share in the beauty that we have in Maine. An extended reception inside the ballroom made for a perfect celebration for this group that filled the dance floor the moment the first song was played. Lindsay and Kevin met at Boston College so there were many references to those times during the toasts and on the dance floor with some of their favorite song picks. It made for a fun and memorable night. Playing for this lovely couple and their incredibly fun wedding filled with love, laughter and dance was a dream. We want to thank Lindsay, Kevin and their amazing photographer, Steven Fairfield Photography, for sharing their photos with us. Special thanks to Kristina of The Purple Orchid, Event Planning for her expert planning! We look forward to watching the highlights from Josh of Northeast Media! Thank you Lindsay and Kevin for sharing your special day with us!
Wavelength provided the ceremony and cocktail hour music with Paul Dionne on keyboards for the ceremony and Paul French on guitar for cocktail hour.

Lindsay and Kevin asked us to learn a special song for their first dance, “Mean to Me” by Brett Eldredge. Lindsay and her dad chose “The Way You Look Tonight” by Frank Sinatra for their father/daughter dance and Kevin and his mom danced to “Do You Believe in Magic” by The Lovin Spoonful for their mother/son dance.
The parents of the bride dance to their first dance song “You Are So Beautiful” by Joe Cocker.
Lindsay’s review on The Knot: Wavelength played at our July 2016 wedding and they did an amazing job! Johnna is absolutely lovely to work with; when I first contacted her and we chatted about the band, I felt she was as excited for the wedding as we were! During the entire process, she was always there to answer questions, keep us on track, and provide any sort of support we needed. About four months before our wedding, she sat down with us to go over logistics, song choices, and general plans to make sure we were on the right track. Initially, we only booked them for the reception, but later we decided to add on for the ceremony and add an additional hour. Adding on the additional times was not a problem and Johnna made it very easy. During the whole process, I truly felt Johnna wanted our wedding to be special.
The night of the wedding, the band did an amazing job. They can play a variety of songs both traditional and current. For the ceremony, they played Adele, “Make You Feel my Love” and Christina Perri, “A Thousand Years,” on the piano, as well as “Pachebel’s Canon in D” and “Trumpet Voluntary.”
At the reception, they had everyone up on the dance floor from beginning to end! Everyone was dancing, enjoying a mixture of current and older songs. At the end of the night, everyone was still on the dance floor having a great time. They played “Wagon Wheel” for us as the final song, after everyone was chanting “one more song,” and there could not have been a more perfect end to the night. Since the wedding, numerous guests have told us how much they loved the band and how great they thought Wavelength was. I highly recommend Wavelength – they are a fantastic band and group of people. Thank you, Wavelength, for helping to make our night so special! We will always cherish the memories.
