Feature Friday: Rebecca Is Engaged!

It’s a very special Feature Friday post today!
If you follow us on Facebook, you’ve already seen the news…REBECCA IS ENGAGED! To say that we’ve been waiting for this day (along with most of the Hampton Roads wedding community!) is a huge understatement! Rebecca and her future hubs Cody are high school sweethearts who have been together for six (!) years, so this is such an exciting next step for them and we can’t wait to be right there with both of them through this whole process!

Kirstyn is one of Rebecca’s all-time favorite photographers (props to Cody for setting this up!), so we know that she will cherish the memories these photos reflect forever! We didn’t think the moment could get ANY sweeter until we realized that the backdrop for the proposal was Rebeccas & Cody’s very first home that they recently purchased together! The two lovebirds had spent the day moving and unpacking boxes and were headed out to celebrate their first night in their new home when he popped the question on their front lawn! The surprise, joy and love written all over Rebecca’s face is priceless and we couldn’t be happier for these two!

We can’t wait to follow along with #thetinkhams through the planning process and after as they create a life together! A HUGE congratulations to the happy couple, and we hope they choose Waterford for their wedding linens 😉

Waterford Wednesday: A Day With Rebecca

Happy Wednesday, friends!
We’ve got a super fun Waterford Wednesday post for you today! Remember last summer when we put together our video, “A Day With Waterford,” where we followed some of our event staff girls through a setup and breakdown? Well, today we’re excited to share “A Day With Rebecca!” Our amazing General Manager, Rebecca Norfleet, took some snapshots of her Tuesday so everyone could get a little “inside look” into her world of all things Waterford!

We’ve been super busy lately, so Tuesday started off with a peaceful drive to the office before the craziness of the day began. . .those beautiful Chesapeake back roads never get old! Check out that overview of Rebecca’s scheduled meetings and events for October. . .absolutely insane! If you follow us on Instagram, you saw the happy mail we received today with our The Knot Hall of Fame award, and of course, no day at the Waterford office is complete without some client design consultations. We love the classic black and white colors this bride was going for!

image2After the busy morning, a surprise flower delivery and organizing papers on our new shelving {keep up with our new office progress at #waterfordofficeupgrade} was on the agenda! We always have a few random specialty linens hanging around after client meetings, and todays culprit was our black Rosette!

image4Tuesday’s always end on a high note when you get to prep some gorgeous neutral and sparkly linens for a sweet Woman’s Club of Portsmouth bride and attend a #757TuesdaysTogether at Bluebird’s Garage! We love joining all of these various creatives as we chat and encourage one another with the “community over competition” mindset!

Age: “I don’t know about you, but I’m feeeelin’ 22!” – Taylor Swift

 Position: Office Manager
 
How long have you been with Waterford?: 3 and a half years!
 
What is the most exciting change WER has had over the past few years?: DEFINITELY our growth! When I  first started, we were washing our chair covers at a laundromat, running things out of Alyse’s garage and had a much smaller inventory. Now we have sequins galore, multiple types of chair covers and just about any sash color you could ever imagine…plus more!
 
College/Major: Currently studying Communications at Old Dominion University, but slipping
on my cap and gown THIS December!
 
How exciting! Is your role with Waterford going to change after graduation?: Definitely! I will be able to accept a full time position and devote more time to this amazing company. I will acquire more responsibility and not to mention, further my knowledge in the event rental industry. SO excited to continue growing with the company!
 
Favorite WER Memory: I have SO many good memories with Waterford! It’s hard to narrow down, but I used to love all the crazy looks I would get from my friends when I would iron sashes in my college dorm. See how much we’ve grown over the years?! Ha!
 
  Describe Yourself In 3 Words: Driven, Easy-Going, AWESOME! Just kidding, I’m responsible 🙂
 
Describe Waterford In 3 Words: Best.Company.Ever.
 
Favorite Linen: Champagne Blush Lamour. Bet you thought I would say sequins, right?!
 
Favorite Sash Tie: I’m a sucker for a nice chivari chair with chiffon sashes weaved through the back…trust me, it’s gorgeous!
 
What do you love most about working at WER: Family. I just LOVE everyone I work with! We’re all like best friends and work so well together. Alyse and I can even finish each other’s sentences, read each other’s minds and some even say we sound exactly the same on the phone! If you’ve been around us, it’s scary how alike we are!


If you aren’t working, where would we find you on the weekend?: Busy being a beach bum on the beaches in the Outer Banks of North Carolina, my favorite place in the world!

 What advice would you give to someone wanting to work in the event industry?: ALWAYS be prepared for the unexpected, don’t forget to smile, and ALWAYS offer to help out another vendor. I like to think of Hampton Roads wedding vendors as “community” and not “competition” so it’s important to extend a helping hand to make the event come together smoothly.

Don’t forget to check back with us each Friday as we feature and introduce
you to our Waterford staff members!
