A Crystal Clear Vision Linens 2018: Part 2

Happy Waterford Wednesday, friends!
Today is Part 2 of A Crystal Clear Vision linens! We’ve got 4 more tablescapes to show you with all of the linen and decor details! Check out the tables that Jessica Ryan Photography captured: Chesapeake Bay CateringFluttering FlowersRusty Cottage, & Traditions Catering.

Champagne Leaf Petal | Gold Velvet
We absolutely adored Chesapeake Bay Catering’s table and their use of layered linens! Our Champagne Leaf Petal and Gold Velvet linens looked stunning mixed together with the bright pop of floral that they had over their table! 
Design: Chesapeake Bay Catering | Lighting & Draping: Blue Steel Lighting | Florals: Leslie Hartig Floral Design |  Signage: Jollity & Co.

Peach Wave | Rose Velvet
Fluttering Flowers was definitely a crowd favorite at this year’s event – they won the coveted People’s Choice Award! All of us Waterford gals were equally as smitten with their design as well – our Peach Wave & Rose Velvet linens paired beautiful with their other table decor, and don’t even get us started on that floral arch – love!

Wisteria Satin | Lilac Organza Overlay
The Rusty Cottage tablescape was giving us all of the purple heart eyes! The theme of their table was “elegant farmhouse” and they completely nailed the look! We adored all of the rustic touches mixed with our Wisteria Satin linen and Lilac Organza Overlay.

Silver Marble | White Sequins
Traditions Catering was giving us all the winter vibes with their table design! Like we said last week, the catering companies really knocked it out of the park! We loved how much detail and thought Traditions put into their design and the way their food was showcased on our Silver Marble and White Sequins linens was perfection

A Crystal Clear Vision Linens 2018: Part 1

Happy Waterford Wednesday, friends!
Two weeks ago, we gave you a sneak peek at all of the amazing tables from this year’s A Crystal Clear Vision, and today we’re excited to dive deeper into ALL the details behind each table. Over the next couple of weeks we’ll be showing off the amazing photos and detailing the various linens and decor that were used on each of the different tablescapes. First up are the tables that Caitlin Gerres Photography, the lead photographer at the event, captured: Jeff’s Flowers Of CourseMontero’s CateringSweetwater CuisineThe Historic Post Office, and Waterford Event Rentals!

Teal Crush
Jeff’s Flowers Of Course brought the tropical vibes to A Crystal Clear Vision, and we were all for it! There was no detail forgotten on this beautiful table, from the Teal Crush linen that they chose, down to the mermaid figurine and pink lemonade served! The cool teal color of the base linen mixed with the bright green napkins was the perfect mix!
Design: Jeff’s Flowers Of Course | Lighting: Blue Steel Lighting | China & Flatware: Big Top Entertainment

Lilac Majestic Overlay | Coral Majestic Overlay
Montero’s really brought the creativity in their display! Instead of just focusing on a table design, the catering company decided to utilize different pieces of vintage furniture to show off their delicious food! Our Lilac Majestic Overlay and Coral Majestic Overlay were the perfect linens to accentuate their design!
Design: Montero’s Catering | Lighting: Blue Steel Lighting | Vintage Furniture: Mad Hatter Vintage | Florals: Pansy & Ivy

Wedgewood Velvet
The caterers at this year’s A Crystal Clear Vision really knocked it out of the park on their table designs. We absolutely ADORED Sweetwater Cuisines choice to go with our Wedgewood Velvet linen in blue on their two side cocktail tables. The real showstopper here was the beautiful, hanging food display they had! What a unique, fun idea that they could showcase for potential clients!
Design: Sweetwater Cuisine | Lighting & Food Display: Blue Steel Lighting 

Charcoal Majestic | Silver Natural Runner
We’ve got two words to say about The Historic Post Office table: Fixer. Upper. The sweet ladies at the HPO decided to go with the “Fixer Upper” theme for their table in honor of their venue (which was re-purposed last year). We think they absolutely nailed it and our Charcoal Majestic and Silver Natural Runner brought the whole table together beautifully!

Blue & White Vintage Damask
Along with planning the whole A Crystal Clear Vision event, Waterford always loves the fact that we get to show off our design skills during the show too! This year, we decided to go with some bright colors in the form of peach and our Blue & White Vintage Damask table linen! Of course, the star of the table was the amazing crystals that Blue Steel Lighting hung above our table that draped down perfectly over our florals. Seriously, they made our dreams come true with this one!

Waterford Wednesday: Rebecca + Cody’s Wedding

Friends, today is the day!
This Waterford Wednesday is extra special because it’s all about our dear Rebecca’s wedding! Rebecca + Cody got married late last year (11.11.17!), and we’re thrilled to finally be able to share the pictures that Kirstyn Marie Photography captured, along with some inside scoop from the bride herself! Check out the mini interview we did with Rebecca below and some of our favorite shots from the big day! Make sure to read all the way to bottom to check out the epic vendor list who made this wedding one for the books!
What was your vision for your wedding?
“I really wanted something that was going to feel classic and elegant, but at the same time, a fun party! Stage Right Lighting made all my dreams come true with the draping and lighting. The lighting changed colors throughout the night and really gave the atmosphere the “fun” vibe I wanted!”
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?
“Silver Marble! It simply didn’t exist in our area, so we got them custom made. Fun and trendy, but beautiful at the same time!”
What linens did you use?
“Silver Marble, Grey Natural, Grey Velvet, Champagne Sequins, Silver Petal, Ivory Aphrodite, Ivory Crinkle and Khaki Polyester. All the things! There’s no such thing as too many linens as long as they all flow!”
Did you plan every aspect of your wedding, or have help?
HECK NO! I would be nothing without my best gal, Missy, owner of Antonia Christianson Events! It was her vision to make the ceremony space completely draped and creating a “tunnel” for guests to walk through. EVERYONE loved it! She’s seriously a design queen! She was right by my side throughout the whole entire process, went to every meeting with me and guided me along the way. I promise I let Cody (my hubby) pick out 2 things: food and alcohol! 🙂
Any last minute thoughts on your wedding?
BEST DAY EVER. Hands down!
