Waterford Wednesday: Hermitage Museum Wedding

Happy Waterford Wednesday, friends!
We’ve got some beautiful Hermitage Museum and Gardens wedding photos to share with you today! It’s always so special when one of our vendor friends gets married and chooses Waterford for their linen needs, and we were thrilled to be a part of Jessica Ryan Photography’s day! Check out some of our favorite shots that Erika Mills Photography captured.
Gosh, could you just swoon at all of the thoughtful details included in this whole design? The lighting, the hanging greenery, and don’t even get us started on the amazing mix of linens! It can often be intimidating to mix and match linens, but when done correctly, the results are nothing short of amazing! Not only did Jessica choose to mix linen colors, but also fabrics and textures which made for such a visually stunning overall design. This outdoor design also included one of our favorite trends: layering! We could stare at that beautiful sweetheart table all day with our champagne sequins linen on the bottom and vintage lace overlay on top! What a treat it was to be a part of your day, Jessica!

Waterford Wednesday: Reception Space Hacks

Happy Waterford Wednesday, friends!
We’re excited for today’s post where we’re going to share some helpful reception space hacks. We’ve been to hundreds of different venue spaces over the years and we’ve gathered some tips for fixing any reception space issue!

Crazy Carpet
David Champagne Photography
Crazy, patterned carpet is one of the top issues that most people have with their venue space. Oftentimes venues will have colorful carpet that doesn’t match your event theme and can be very distracting when combined with your decor. An easy way to keep your guests’ eyes off the carpet is by directing their gaze up! Intricate draping, interesting light arrangements, or beautiful floral are all easy ways to do this!

Old & Dated Chairs

Dressing up chairs with chair covers is a quick and easy fix for old and dated venue chairs. Adding a nice satin or organza sash will dress the chairs up even further! If you want to nix the venue provided chairs completely, renting beautiful chiavari chairs is another option if you have a little extra money in your budget!

The Space is Too Big

While it’s better to have too much space than not enough, large, open ballrooms can make a venue seem cold. If you’re looking for a more intimate feel, you can divide the room with drapery, additional furniture, or low-hanging chandeliers and centerpieces!

Waterford Wednesday: A Modern Twist

Happy Waterford Wednesday, friends!
We’ve got a fun little post for you all today! With blogs and Pinterest taking the wedding and event industry by storm over the past couple of years, the “traditional” wedding look has definitely evolved. Couples are focused on incorporating personal style and creative ideas into their wedding day as opposed to just sticking to traditional norms. We’ve rounded up some of our recent favorite ways to add a modern approach to your wedding!

Velvet
Design: Palette of Petals // Photographer: Caitlin Gerres Photography
We are absolutely smitten over velvet linens! The silky and smooth fabric gives off a timeless look, yet is a modern approach to wedding table designs. The versatile fabric can be dressed up or down depending on the look you’re searching for and is definitely a more modern fabric approach.

Vintage

There’s nothing quiet like the wow factor a vintage piece can bring to a table design. Whether it be an extravagant love seat or small decor items, these elements provide the perfect marriage of vintage and modern.

Shapes/Patterns
Photographer: Elizabeth Friske Photography
Interesting shapes and patterns are a modern trend that we’ve seen pop up in the industry. While the traditional shades of white and ivory are still wedding staples to a certain degree, many couples are choosing to go bold with different colors and designs in their linens.
