Our Hope For 2020

Happy Wednesday! You know what that means- time for Waterford Wednesday. Okay- let’s be real the last few months of 2020 have been ROUGH for everyone. We are missing our staff, our events, our vendor friends, and all of our amazing clients so much! We wanted this blog today to be about all the good that weddings and events can bring & maybe if we speak it into existence they’ll be back sooner than later. *Fingers crossed*

At the start of this amazing new year AND decade- our friends at The Lesner Inn asked us to be a part of an incredible & elegant 20’s theme styled shoot. The vendor list for this one was off the chain! And the girls knocked it out of the park with this design and attention to detail.Might we add- they used some of our favorite linens to give you all the 20’s feels. This black and silver metallic brushed jacquard linen is reversible. SAY WHATTTT. You have the option to use this side that shows more of the darker colors but flip it to have a similar pattern with the lighter colors popping!Oh the chandelier and the dangling pearls add for an effortless 20’s look.Want to know what else is reversible? You guessed it- the napkins can be folded on either the shiny side or the matte side. This photo shows the napkins folded shiny side up and you can see the subtle texture that comes with a majestic linen.Adding some mermaid sequins is sure to catch the eyes of your guest. This linen is super fun & unique!Black and gold is such a timeless look that can be transformed and elevated from decade to decade or even 1920 –> 2020!As always- a perfect way to add some pizzaz to your chairs is by using sashes. This is a 4 corner knot and adds a beautiful accent to the chairs.While we know 2020 has been no walk in the park for any of us, we are confident that events will be up and running in no time! To all of the couples affected by COVID-19 we are rooting for you!!! We will do everything in our power to make your event just as incredible as originally planned. 2020 we know there is potential to end this year with a bang. So cheers! Cheers to 2020 ending better than it’s started.

2020 Color of the Year!

We are soooo stoked that the color blue has been chosen as this year’s Pantone Color of the Year. Just to remind you, here are the Pantone Colors of the Year for the last couple years: 2019- coral, 2018- violet, 2017- greenery. When it comes to picking wedding colors, there are a few that will always remain classics, blue is one of them. Some of the other colors that are a good go to when deciding what to pick for your big day include blush, navy, burgundy, greenery, and all things neutral.

This week for the blog we wanted to take it back to some of our FAVORITE blue weddings- we know you will just love.Kirstyn Marie Photography

This romantic look was from a few years ago using one of the most beautiful, classic prints. This blue pottery print linen was used all throughout this wedding in the form of linens, runners, and sashes. The clean look of the white plates on top of the gold chargers provide the most beautiful place setting.Dani White Photography

This wedding from the Half Moone incorporated a simple blue “Panama” napkin among our “Ivory Belize” tablecloth with hopes to give their guests an elegant tropical feel.Planner: Antonia Christianson Events | Photography: Ethan Yang Photography

Who doesn’t love a good sash? Adding in that wedding color with a sash is such a fun way to bring your chairs to life & likely would be something unexpected by your guests.Rob Korb Photography

This next photo- I mean it just speaks for itself. The colors, the patterns, the vibrancy. WE. LOVE. IT. ALL. Blue is just one of those colors that you really can just tie into anything & this photo shows nothing less.Dragon Photo Studio

Throwing it back to a fall shoot we did with an INCREDIBLE vision. We are using the fun blue and white pattern with super vibrant floral. Did you peep the navy velvet napkin too? To die for.Design: Lustre Theory | Photography: Molly Lichten Photography
