Outdoor Wedding in Smithfield Virginia

Happy Waterford Wednesday! Can you believe Christmas is here- legit a week away. Wow where has the time gone? We just received images back from a beautiful outdoor wedding in Smithfield, Virginia at The Aberdeen Farm. Not even a last minute rain plan was going to ruin this day! Seriously though you guys, when planning your wedding a DREAM TEAM when it comes to your vendors is a must. We do what we do to ensure that your big day goes off without a hitch! Sometimes rain is the problem on hand, but that doesn’t mean we can’t turn that day right on around.

We had the pleasure of setting up this incredible wedding early on a Saturday when there was nothing but rain on the forecast. But y’all- we made it happen & the results are incredible.

We love a good neutral color palette! From the florals to the plateware down to the linens we are in awe of how these final touches came together. Anytime there’s going to be a lot of glass incorporated in the centerpieces we know that the glass beaded chargers are the perfect match! The two together just gives a super clean and sleek feel to the tables while still bringing on the elegance. And isn’t this the cutest menu card you’ve ever seen! Sometimes all it takes is one small detail to be out of the box to make the biggest impact on the table. It’s a perfect fit in the beaded charger and framed perfectly by the knotted napkin. Guys we just can’t.Loving that this image captures the details in the floral, glassware, linens- such a beaut don’t you agree!A cute cocktail hour with a touch of vintage was perfect to give this groom “his own space”.And a beautiful cake table image to finish the night off! This cake is so amazing and topped with a gorgeous gold foil detail. It didn’t take much to make the cake look this good!Victoria & David- your wedding photos are going to be ones you show off FOREVER. These images are giving us so much life. Congrats to the both of you & we hope that you have an incredible life together!

A Magical Woman’s Club Wedding

What’s up everyone? It’s Wednesday and we are finally kicking off the fall wedding season! In the last couple of weeks, things have finally ramped up for us & have us feeling normal again. We are so happy to be back in some of our favorite venues getting to make out couple’s wedding day dreams come true. Just a couple weeks ago we got photos back from a magical wedding we were a part of in July at one of our favorite spots- The Woman’s Club of Portsmouth!

Take a look at these incredible images to see just a glimpse of what we have to offer you!

We just can’t get enough of views like these. The tall ceilings, the chandelier, the gold chiavari chairs with a stunning arch like this one! I mean come on, does it get any better than this!?Debating on a head table? Well, you may have just gotten your answer right here. We love the sophisticated & elegant look that head tables bring and when topped with a stunning boa of greenery it doesn’t get any better than this! Wondering what else you can add to your reception space to add a more romantic feel? Sashes, and chiffon sashes woven through a chiavari chair is just everything! This may or may not be our favorite tie when it comes to giving chiavari chairs that extra oomph!Adding on a sweetheart table is a great way to make sure you and your new spouse get to spend that extra quality time together on what seems like such a fast paced night! After getting a chance to chat with all of your guests it’s such an intimate way to give you all that time just for the two of you!And who doesn’t love a BOMB cake table shot, amirite? Having a beautiful linen, or in this case, paired with a show stopping floral arch is the perfect way to elevate that cake table shot & ensure some beautiful photos when it comes time to cut the cake! We love a good cake table photo that just captures the beauty of all the things- linens, cake, floral, it’s just PERFECTION.
And when it comes to table decor, nothing is off limits. Whether you’re dramatic & show stopping with the centerpieces or simple but breathtaking, you’re sure to get some beautiful photos of what was once an idea, but now a reality!Congrats to Jeff & Paige! Thank you so much for letting us be a part of your amazing wedding day! We wish you love & happiness for the rest of time!

Spring 2020 Hot Trend!

Happy Waterford Wednesday y’all! Today we are talking about one of the most trending items we have been seeing- and we’re not mad about it. This blog is about all things chiffon! Chiffon has been super popular for us this last year and the requests keep growing! These can be used in a few different ways and the color options are endless.

Often, we see chiffon used as a decorative runner that can be bunched, draped, woven through centerpieces for a head table or to add some color to a beautiful wooden farm table.Table Design: Inspired Events by Kelly | Photography: Leigh Skaggs Photography

The runners are so versatile they can even be draped horizontally on the table or at a diagonal. Imagination is key when it comes to adding chiffon into your design.

Another way to add some chiffon in your life is to add some chiffon sashes to the chairs of your head table! What a beautiful way to make those people closest to you stand out with a chair design like this!Table Design: Big Top Entertainment | Photography: Kirstyn Marie Photography

Looking for some chiffon but want something a little different than the woven look? Yup! We can do that too! These chairs are tied in a 4 corner knot and accented with a beautiful and dainty floral arrangement. This would be PERFECT for a romantic sweetheart table. Don’t you agree?Table Design: Vivd Expressions | Photography: Katie Nesbitt Photography

Another way to incorporate chiffon in a show stopping way- weave the entire back row of your ceremony chairs. This is sure to take the breath away of your guests AND ensure you get wedding photos back that look like this!Photography: Amanda Hedgepeth Photography

Planning on a fun dessert bar, popcorn bar, or pretzel station?? Adding a colored chiffon runner to that table is a simple way to bring those wedding colors in too.Table Design: Big Top Entertainment | Photography: Kirstyn Marie Photography

It’s pretty obvious why chiffon is one of our favorite linen pieces right?? We weren’t kidding, you can do ANYTHING with them. And the color options are sure to catch your eye. We carry chiffon runners in a multitude of colors including but not limited to: white, ivory, taupe, black, light grey, charcoal, burgundy, hunter green, mustard yellow, coral, navy, dusty blue, dusty rose, mauve, wisteria. Guys I could go on for days!!!
