A Day With Waterford

Happy Waterford Wednesday!
We are so, so excited about this post and have been waiting all week to share! Last week, we hinted at getting an “inside look” into what we really do here at Waterford, and today is finally the day! This past weekend, we put together a little video montage of “A Day With Waterford.” The video follows some of our  girls and the various jobs they perform while on a setup as well as a breakdown, and today, thanks to the Cameo App (you should get it, it’s awesome!) you can see it! In our opinion, there’s nothing better than getting a sneak peak into a company to see how everything works!

So, without further adieu. . .

A Day With Waterford

How awesome is that video app?! We loved being able to capture a day in the life of our staff! They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but in order to really show off Waterford we knew there was no better way than a video!
The setup that was shown was designed and coordinated by Sunkissed Events & Design at the gorgeous Cavalier Golf & Yacht Club and featured our beautiful linens that paired so well with the outdoor water view!

The breakdown shown was designed and coordinated by Antonia Christianson Events.

Oceanaire Photo Shoot

Today, we are so excited to share some exclusive pictures of a photo shoot Waterford was recently a part of! One of our very favorite things here at Waterford is to showcase our linens, and photo shoots always present the best opportunity to see our linens come to life. Basically, it gives us a chance to play “dress up,” wedding style. . .and who doesn’t love that?!

Waterford provided all of the linens for the photo shoot at the Oceanaire Resort Hotel in Virginia Beach and the shoot turned out flawless thanks to the concept and direction of Michele Carrizales of MorLina Events and Dawn Roberson of Oceanaire Resort Hotel. The ultra talented Will King of Will King Photography captured all of the gorgeous images during the shoot.

See what we mean? To.Die.For. Oceanaire has this fabulous outdoor setup on the top floor of the hotel and it was the perfect location for these particular shots and we absolutely loved the way our linens looked with the little glimpse of the patio section as well as up close. Featured above is our Metallic Silver Table Linen paired with our Blush colored napkins and Blush sashes tied in a side knot. The softness of the Blush mixed with the shimmer of the table linen worked so well together and this shot really shows how versatile this speciality linen is! Of course, the gorgeous floral arrangement by Alisa of Botanique Events pairs so well with the blush and metallic and brings the whole look together.

We love the look and feel of the first photo in black and white and then the shock of the bright blues with the following color pictures! Our Grey Petal Linen paired with our black chair covers and Oasis sashes give this setting a cooler sort of look without compromising the elegance. The contrast between the dark chair cover, the bright Oasis sash and Tiffany Blue napkin, and the floral by Botanique Events pulls the whole table together without it looking like too much is going on. While we see white or ivory chair covers used most often, black chair covers are continually increasing in popularity and based off of this photo and setup we can see why!

Special thanks to the other amazing vendors who were involved in making this shoot so beautiful!

Waterford Wednesday: Petal Linen

Happy Waterford Wednesday!
We are fresh off one of our busiest weeks and weekends ever and we are gearing up for another crazy event-filled weekend! Did we mention how much we LOVE wedding season? Seriously, the hustle and bustle of the planning and prepping involved to make each and every individual event special and flawless is right up our alley!
Since the weather has been gorgeous and has basically skipped over spring right into summer, we thought we’d feature one of our favorite linens that pairs beautifully with warm weather!

Our Petal Linen has become a favorite of many of the Waterford girls and brides alike! This linen (in ivory above!) is such a gorgeous addition to any event and if we’ve learned anything about the event industry, it’s that details matter! It’s crazy how this Petal Linen can transform a cake table into a beautiful display or accentuate a sweetheart table, but we’ve seen it happen time and time again. It never fails, this linen makes a statement and looks exquisite while doing so!

The Petal Linen comes in a variety of colors, but white is one that we see used constantly! As we mentioned last week, white is a popular neutral for summer and looks so crisp against bright or bold colors. The petal detail on this linen brings a basic white linen to the next level and is sure to leave an impression! Add a bright napkin or flower centerpiece to this linen and you just can’t go wrong!

We’ve seen how brides have utilized this linen for their winter weddings and we can’t wait to see how this linen is incorporated with spring and summer touches!

Waterford Wednesday: Trends We Love

We can’t believe it’s already that time of the week again to share some of our favorite things with you! As we gear up for our busiest week/weekend yet (literally!) we thought we’d highlight 2 particular trends that we are LOVING this wedding season.
Since the Met Gala was two nights ago, we couldn’t resist pairing these trends with some fashion as well. . .we definitely can’t let these designer dresses go to waste!

We completely fell in love with Emma Stone in two different hue’s of pink! We’ve been seeing two-toned style A LOT this season, especially with napkins, and we can’t deny that we are huge fans! Often times people think that their linens need to be super uniformed and match, but having two different colored napkins really brings a guest table to life and is an awesome way to incorporate your wedding colors without having to go with full table linens. We just adore the spring “pop” the napkins pictured above provide, and the inclusion of a table runner pulls the whole look together beautifully!

Fresh, crisp, and elegant. These were our exact thoughts when we saw Victoria Beckham walk the red carpet in this amazing white gown. Don’t get us wrong, we love a good chair cover and sash, but we are equally as smitten with our white chairs that we provide through The Woman’s Club of Portsmouth. White is the ultimate neutral, and we’ve seen so many bride’s utilize our chairs to bring their big day to the next level. Our chairs present the fresh, crisp, elegance that drew us to Victoria’s dress as well as provide such a graceful and stylish setting for a ceremony or reception. Of course, these chairs could easily be dressed up with a gorgeous satin or organza sash, but in this case, we are loving them plain!

We’re so excited to see these two particular trends evolve this wedding season and see how each individual bride puts their own twist on them!
