Waterford Wednesday: Rob Korb Photography

Happy Waterford Wednesday!
We are fresh off a busy, event filled weekend and today we are beyond thrilled to be blogging about our friend Rob Korb of Rob Korb Photography! Rob is a photographer based out of Ocean City, Maryland who specializes in wedding and engagement photographs! Although the Rob Korb Photography studio is located in Ocean City, Rob travels throughout the Mid-Atlantic and even overseas taking breathtaking photos.

See what we mean?! GORGEOUS! We love keeping up with Rob on Facebook, his Blog, and even Instagram (@robkorbphotography) to catch sneak peeks of the various weddings he travels to and shoots! There’s nothing better than a wedding photographer who blogs the pictures they shoot with some insider tidbits about the actual day sprinkled throughout!

Rob has a special place in the heart of Waterford as he is the photographer who captured our initial group and individual photos and helped develop our website! We’ve hired many new event staff members since the last time we had pictures done, so Rob graciously agreed to make the 2 1/2 hour drive down to Virginia to capture some updated images for our website this past Monday. The weather could not have been anymore beautiful and we all had a fabulous time posing and getting our model on while Rob snapped some awesome individual and group shots! You’ll have to wait until we unveil our updated website to see all of the pictures that Rob took, but we want to leave you with a little sneak peek!

This might have been our favorite shot of the day! Nothing like an impromptu group selfie at the end of the shoot with the photographer himself!
We can’t thank you enough for taking time out of your schedule to do this photo shoot for us Rob and we are so excited to see the photos!

Waterford Wednesday: Favorite Things

Welcome back to another week of Waterford Wednesday!
We’ve loved being able to blog each week and keep all of you updated on the happenings of Waterford! This week, we thought it would be fun to highlight a few of our favorite things. Whether it’s a summer wedding trend or a photo shoot, here are some things we are loving!

Stylized Shoots

We’ve highlighted some stylized shoots our linens were a part of in previous Waterford Wednesday posts, but this particular shoot was extra special to Waterford! With the concept by Morlina Events and photographed by Will Hawkins Photography, this nautical themed shoot featured two of Waterford’s own. Rebecca, Waterford’s Event Staff Supervisor portrayed a beautiful bride in the shoot, while Hayley, a new Waterford Event Staff member made a gorgeous bridesmaid! As much as we love seeing our linens come to life on camera, it’s extra sweet when we can see some of our staff members in front of the camera rather than behind the scenes. Look out for a future post when we can show you more of these photos!

Napkins

We just love a good napkin! Napkins really do bring a whole table together and can provide an extra pop of color events often need. Waterford has always provided napkins, but lately we’ve really gotten to experiment with interesting napkin folds and we are eager to continue to try more! Featured above are just a few of the many colors we provide folded in a pocket fold, french pleat, and tri-fold. We love how elegant the french pleat folded napkin in Blush looks against our gold plate charger!

The summer months mean outdoor weddings and we could not be any more thrilled about that! There’s just something about a warm summer night wedding that makes us happy! We absolutely loved how our table linens, napkins, and chair covers paired with both of these adorable outdoor receptions. Any time a wedding features twinkling lights or a stunning view, count us in!

Keep checking back each week for Waterford Wednesday! We’ve got some exciting posts coming up! We are doing a blog makeover in the coming weeks to update our staff members photos and we’re so excited to introduce everyone to some new Waterford members!

Steaming To Perfection

Happy Waterford Wednesday!
Today we’re talking about a very important aspect of our company: steaming.

Yep, that’s right! Steaming. At Waterford we not only pride ourselves on having the best quality linens, but also making sure that we handle, set up, and present our linens in the best possible way. Thus, steaming is a huge part of our set up process at any event!
Photo Jun 07, 2 58 59 PMAlthough we steam all of our linens to perfection at each event if necessary, our chair covers, being one of our most sought after product, are the things that often need most of our attention. We try to prevent wrinkles from occurring on our chair covers by hanging each individual cover and storing them in bags on racks throughout our warehouse instead of folding them in bins. Even though we take measures to prevent unwanted wrinkles, we know that various circumstances can occur which is why we pride ourselves so heavily on steaming out any and all wrinkles that appear! One of the motto’s we like to remember here at Waterford is: “Act like you are setting up for you wedding day.” All of us agree that the last thing we would want at our wedding are wrinkly chair covers and linens!
steamingblogSince this process really sets us apart, we decided to make another short Cameo video to show you guys exactly how it’s done! Click the link below to check out the process Waterford goes through from putting on our chair covers to steaming!

The Woman’s Club Of Portsmouth

Today, we are so excited to feature one of our very favorite venues to work with, The Woman’s Club of Portsmouth!

Deemed as a “Premiere Wedding Destination,” The Woman’s Club offers one of the most beautiful ballrooms for a wedding or any type of reception/event, as well as an outdoor area that is perfect for a ceremony. Having produced and accommodated hundreds of weddings over the 80 years in Portsmouth, The Woman’s Club is a top venue in the minds of brides and vendors alike!

The ballroom, where our linens spend most of their time, has just recently been renovated and expanded and is topped off by the most gorgeous chandeliers. The room, which can seat 250 comfortably is accentuated by the grand high ceilings that make the room seem even bigger than it already is!ptownphotoshootPhoto // Will King Photography

After working so closely with The Woman’s Club of Portsmouth over the years, and really loving their venue and staff, Waterford recently decided to partner with them on something big! This past April we purchased beautiful white resin chairs that we are storing at The Woman’s Club and renting out to their brides! As we’ve said before, we love these chairs and really think that they bring such a classic, clean look to any event!
