Happy Waterford Wednesday, friends!
We are SO excited for today’s post, because it’s all about Stephanie’s wedding! Stephanie and Eddie got married earlier this month, and we’re thrilled to finally be able to share the pictures that Caitlin Gerres Photography captured, along with some inside scoop from the bride herself! Check out the mini interview we did with Stephanie below and some of our favorite shots!
What was your vision for your wedding?: It was very important for me to make our wedding enjoyable for everyone. I wanted it to be classic, unique and romantic. I also wanted there to be a feeling of being outside in a vineyard (which is exactly what guests told me they felt!) Success!
After working in the linen industry, there was obviously a lot of interest in what linens you would choose! Was there one linen you absolutely had to have?: I wanted something that was unique and that hadn’t been in the market for long. So, when we got our new sequin floral overlays, it was the perfect opportunity for me to use something no one else had yet! Also, the sequin polka dot linens..those have been one of my favorites since I started working at Waterford.
Seeing her vision come to life for the first time…we LOVE this shot!

Guest Tables: Khaki Poly & Sequin Floral Lace Overlay

Did you plan every aspect of your wedding, or have help?: Working in the industry, I had a good idea of what I wanted and did not want for my wedding. When it came to planning and designing, I wanted to prove to myself that I could do it on my own…and I did just that! I had all of these visions in my head, and while the design and details were mostly mine, I would have nothing without the amazing vendors that I chose to help me. There were many times that I came into the Waterford office stressed, upset, and basically ready to give up. Thank God for Alyse and Rebecca because they were always there for me and always supported my ideas and were ready with advice!
Any last minute thoughts on your wedding?: Because of all the vendors involved (see below!), my friends and family, and of course my loving husband, I had the wedding of my dreams! And I am so grateful.
