Waterford Wednesday: Backdrops at Your Wedding

Happy Waterford Wednesday, friends!
Today is all about a wedding trend that we are absolutely loving, backdrops! Backdrops are the perfect piece to add a “wow factor” without looking too busy at your wedding. We’ve seen these beautiful pieces used during the ceremony, behind the sweetheart table, and even as a photo booth backdrop! Check out some of our favorite backdrops below!

Ceremony/Photo Booth Backdrop
Remember when we blogged Rebecca’s wedding a couple months ago? You got a little glance of the amazing backdrop she had, and we are still obsessing over it! This particular backdrop took on double duty, serving as the ceremony backdrop and then as the photo booth backdrop during the reception. What an awesome idea to get maximum use out of such a gorgeous piece!

Seating Area Backdrop
This beautiful backdrop is actually from a Women’s Club of Portsmouth wedding a couple years ago! Featuring the lyrics from the couples first dance song, this stunning backdrop was the perfect seating area for guests! The bride and groom also got some beautiful portraits in front of it as well!

Cake/Dessert Table Backdrop
The backdrop for this recent Winter Wedding styled shoot gave us serious inspiration! How gorgeous would cake cutting pictures be in front of this backdrop? Having your wedding favors on a table in front of this backdrop would also be a super cute idea!

Waterford Wednesday: Historic Post Office Wedding

It’s Waterford Wednesday!
It’s been a little bit since we’ve blogged a wedding, so today is perfect to feature a beautiful Historic Post Office wedding from last month! We just love, love, love the Historic Post Office and it’s been such a great venue addition to Hampton Roads, and we are always thrilled to have our linens and mahogany chairs be a part of any event there! See some of our favorite linen and chair photos below, and head on over to Erika Mills Photography to check out more photos from this beautiful day!
How gorgeous was the draping?! We hadn’t seen that done at the Historic Post Office until this wedding and we absolutely loved it! The wooden arch over the sweetheart table was also the location that the couple got married, and we thought that was so sweet! The hints of blush throughout the reception space were beautiful and our Leaf Champagne runners (on the guest tables) and overlays (on the sweetheart and cake/donut table) were the perfect pair!

Waterford Wednesday: Winter Wedding Styled Shoot

Happy Waterford Wednesday, friends!
Today we’ve got a beautiful styled shoot to share with you! This shoot was done back in February as part of Audrey Rose Photography’s Workshop and we’ve been itching to be able to share it since then! It was picked up to be featured on Wedding Chicks, so we had to wait for that to go live before posting ourselves! Audrey teamed up with Jamie Leigh Events (and a host of other top-notch vendors listed below!) to help her style the elegant winter wedding shoot she had in mind. The outcome was a gorgeous setup at the Womans Club Of Portsmouth filled with whites, greys, and ice blues! Check out some of our favorites below:
We absolutely adore the color palette used for this shoot! Since this styled shoot was back in February, the inspiration was “winter,” but the greenery from the floral arrangements and the ice blues/greys of the linens give off a spring vibe as well! We were thrilled to have our linens in this shoot including our Grey Velvet linen on the cocktail table (next to that amazing backdrop!), Ice Blue Matte Satin Napkins, and our Silver Majestic linen. Of course, we can’t forget our White Resin Chairs housed on-site at the Woman’s Club of Portsmouth!

Check out the Wedding Chicks feature here, and head to Audrey’s blog for more pictures from the shoot here!

A Crystal Clear Vision Linens 2018: Part 4

Happy Waterford Wednesday, friends!
Today is Part 4 (the finale!) of A Crystal Clear Vision linens and details! Check out the 5 tables that Macon Photography captured: Emily WeddingsGoodrich Gourmet CateringMad Hatter VintageThe Obici House, & The Posh Pair!

Sunset Marble
Beautiful Sunset Marble linen? Check! Amazing ethereal greenery wall? Check! Winner of Vendors Choice Award? Check! Emily Weddings nailed every single aspect of their table design, and all of the other vendors in attendance thought so too, as they walked away with one of our coveted awards!
Design: Emily Weddings | Lighting: Blue Steel Lighting | Florals & Greenery: Palette of Petals |  Signage: Jollity & Co.

Ivory Iridescent Crush | Copper Sequins
We love, loved how elegant Goodrich Gourmet’s table turned out! Our Ivory Iridescent Crush linen was used as the perfect faux runner on their sweetheart styled table and our Copper Sequins linen brought attention to the gorgeous food they had on display!
Design: Goodrich Gourmet Catering | Lighting: Blue Steel Lighting 

Aphrodite Runner
How gorgeous are the teal chairs that Mad Hatter Vintage used at A Crystal Clear Vision? We’re STILL thinking about them! We loved how Mad Hatter created a whole little “nook” as opposed to just a table design – it definitely gave our guests great ideas of different ways to setup their own wedding! The Aphrodite Runner was the perfect linen choice for their table too!
Design: Mad Hatter Vintage | Lighting: Blue Steel Lighting

Khaki Polyester
The Obici House brought love story vibes to their table design..literally! They kept their table design clean and simple with our Khaki Polyester linen and then had a showstopper piece behind the table in the form of a huge “storybook!” We absolutely loved the creativity and thought behind this element!
Design: The Obici House  | Lighting: Blue Steel Lighting

Nude SequinsThe Posh Pair was another vendor that created a complete “nook” instead of just one table, and  completely nailed it! Their design aesthetic really came to life and their use of many different signs and details was a huge draw for those that attended! Our Nude Sequins linens on each of their tables was the perfect compliment!

Waterford Wednesday: ILEA Knife and Fork Competition

Happy Waterford Wednesday, friends!
We’ve got a fun post for you today all about the ILEA Hampton Roads Knife & Fork Competition! ILEA, the International Live Events Association, is an amazing organization we are part of that brings together special event professionals for education and networking purposes. We absolutely love the monthly meetings and fun events (like this one!) that our ILEA Hampton Roads chapter hosts. The whole knife and fork tabletop competition was based around Hollywood, so each vendor chose a movie to design their table around. Check out how Rebecca and Brigitte brought our “Grease” inspired table to life below!
We love when we are able to be on the “other side of table” so to speak and come up with creative and unique design ideas! Rebecca and Brigitte chose Grease as their inspiration, and really brought the 1950’s diner feel to life with the help of our red and white striped polyester linen! Of course, we had a ton of “friendor” help: Stage Right Lighting made our dreams come true with the lighting above the table, Mad Hatter Vintage Rentals provided the flatware and soda crate that really tied the old school feel together, and Big Top Entertainment lent us the amazing booth seat that is quintessential 1950’s diner!

You have to check out more of the creative tables from this year’s competition! Head on over to the ILEA Facebook page to see more from the fun event!
