Waterford Wednesday: A Crystal Clear Vision 2019

It’s Waterford Wednesday and we are just so excited that it’s almost February, which means A Crystal Clear Vision is right around the corner (February 10th)!!!!

If you have been following us on social media, you may have heard or seen us share about the the COMPLETE wedding giveaway that one lucky couple will win who attend our VIP portion of our annual A Crystal Clear Vision!  I mean, can you imagine?  What a dream come true!

Our 2018 winners, Mason and Nicole, recently tied the knot in November at the beautiful Historic Post Office in Hampton, Virginia.  The area’s top event professionals all came together to make their dream a reality and we are so happy that we could help be apart of this memorable day!  Check out some of our favs below:

Mason and Nicole’s wedding represents the importance of marriage, two coming together.  Your styles, daily routines, and personalities intertwine as the two become one.  His liking for racing and cars along with her love for purples and vintage proved to be the perfect mash-up for these two on their special day!

We can’t wait to see you there on February 10th from 12PM-4PM!

Special thanks to the generosity of all vendors involved:

Waterford Wednesday: Employee Spotlight

Happy Waterford Wednesday friends!

Over here at Waterford Events Rentals we have some hard working gals!  One in particular who makes so much happen and is truly a gem is Heather Philbrick, our January’s Employee of the Month!  Because of her desire to continuously improve WER’s organization, methodology, and overall moral, WER has unanimously decided to nominate her for this employee spotlight.  Like seriously, what would we do without her?

Serving as one of our Lead Event Staff AND our sole Inventory Specialist, she has a LOT going on everyday!  Since moving into our new warehouse a few months ago, she has literally transformed it, organizing it by color, type of linen, style, etc.  Check it out for yourself below:

In case you haven’t had an opportunity to meet Heather during one of our set-ups or even had to the time to visit to our new warehouse, here she is, front and center, for y’all to get to know:

What drew you to WER originally?

“Weddings have always had my heart.  I remember feeling jealous after seeing posts on social media of the ‘Waterford girls’ at bridal shows as well as setting up for weddings.  I loved how they looked like one big happy family!”

How has WER helped you in your career development?

“Working at WER has helped me grow in so many ways!  I would say the biggest thing I’ve learned is to not be afraid to take initiative and to have a ‘whatever it takes’ mentality.  When I was a senior at Old Dominion University, Alyse helped me get an internship with Crystal at Cherry Blossom Planning Factory.  From there, I have been able to expand my knowledge of the event industry even more!”

What is your fav part about working for WER?

“The best part about working for WER is setting up for events on the weekends.  I love seeing all of the vendors hard work come together for someone’s special day.”

How has WER changed since you started working there?

“When I first started working at WER, all of our inventory was crunched into two small warehouses.  We recently moved into our new warehouse and it’s so much bigger!  Most importantly, I have so much more space to ORGANIZE!!!”

What is your fav product and/or linen at WER?

“My fav linen is Champagne Aphrodite!”  Take a look for yourself below and see why it’s Heather’s fav:

What’s next?  What’s your goal in life?

“My dream is to become a wedding planner and/or manage a wedding venue…possibly even own/build my own!”

What are three words to describe WER?

“Personable, creative, and detail-oriented.”  WER seeks to build connections and make dreams come to life through our products and linens!

What advice do you have for prospective candidates who want to work for WER?

“My advice for anyone looking to join the WER team is to learn to be adaptable!  Every set-up is different.  Some days you need to work very fast, while some days things don’t go as planned.  At the end of the day, you need to be able to do whatever it takes to get the job done and make the client happy…without panicking!”

 

Let’s all send a special shout-out to Heather for being such a hard-working and faithful employee since she joined our team over three years ago!  Congrats Heather on a job well done and for being WER’s Employee of the Month for January!

Waterford Wednesday: Brianne and Austin Wedding

Happy Waterford Wednesday friends!

We just received these gorgeous photos from one of our fav 2018 weddings at Half Moone in Norfolk and we are so excited to share them with you!  Brianne and Austin’s wedding holds a special place in our heart as truly a breathtaking event.  The touches of natural greenery with accents of navy, white, and beige prove to be quite appealing and rightly so, a tropical trendsetter.  Collaborating with Ethan Yang Photography and Antonia Christianson Events was an absolute dream to say the least!  Take a look at some of our favs from Brianne and Austin’s wedding day:

By choosing the Velvet Navy table linen in combination with the Panama Cobalt napkins for their sweetheart table, Brianne and Austin completed their look for this tropical yet rustic wedding.  The pops of color from their beautiful floral as well as their final touches throughout further invited their guests to feel warmly welcomed.  So, if you’re in the middle of planning your 2019 wedding and are at a lost for inspiration, make sure you save this one as a reference for what’s on trend and quite breathtaking!

Great job to all vendors involved:
