July 2020 Styled Shoot

It’s Wednesday! Woo hoo!!! We are halfway through this week and getting closer to another scorching hot weekend! Just two weeks ago we were asked to be a part of an incredible styled shoot! We knew this shoot was going to be one for the books because the vendor list is off the chain- but also because the linens they chose are TO. DIE. FOR.

It was good to get out and have some fun with a styled shoot and to see how beautiful everything came together. Y’all, we literally received these photos TODAY and because we can’t wait any longer to post them we’re blogging them!!!Are you obsessed yet?? This features a handful of our brand new products and we are THRILLED with how these photos turned out. These yellow flowers add the perfect bright and fun pop of color to the tablescape. We love seeing closeup shots of this linen because it gets more and more beautiful the closer you get to it, the detail, the slight shimmer, the pattern- gives us all the feels.We have no words. When something is just that stunning, you let it do all the talking for you! And can this cake design get any more beautiful?!The beauty and brains behind the operation! Sarah and Jacklyn thank you soooo much for letting us be a part of this shoot! These photos are incredible and we are so thankful that you thought of us to join in on this magic!

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.

Love is Love Styled Shoot

Last month we had the pleasure of being a part of this beautiful LGBTQ styled shoot at the Historic Post Office. We are thrilled to be included in such a monumental styled shoot done here in Hampton Roads. The theme of this shoot was modern with beautiful citrus accents.

We are OBSESSED with how the tablescape turned out using one of our unique specialty linens. Lustre Theory Styling & Design paired our blue and white pottery print linen and navy blue velvet napkins to complement the vibrancy of the fruits. The name cards were even made from lemons, how cute!

The cake table was a more vintage, subtle approach really allowing the citrus to come to life here. Our white gauze runner was used to achieve a soft and romantic feel and letting the incredible cake be the focus.

We are so thrilled with how this shoot turned out and honored to be part of such a beautiful message. This full shot shows the happy couple paired with the finished product of our linen and all it’s accessories.

Here at Waterford Event Rentals, we want to remind everyone that love is love and we are grateful to be a part of anyone’s wedding day. Love is the reason we get to wake up and come to work every day. Being able to contribute to weddings all over Hampton Roads and beyond makes our job that much sweeter.

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!

Waterford Wednesday: Milky Way Styled Shoot With ISO:ALT

It’s Waterford Wednesday, friends!
We are pumped about the super creative styled shoot we are showing you today – featuring our linens! A couple of months ago, Misty and Mike of ISO:ALT executed the most magical “Milky Way” inspired styled shoot in the mountains of Virginia, and you’re not going to BELIEVE the photos that were captured! The ISO:ALT team made sure no detail was left untouched when planning for this epic shoot – down to the exact day the Milky Way could be seen the best! Check out some of our favorite shots below and don’t forget to head on over to the ISO:ALT blog to see more pictures and read about all of the behind the scenes that went into achieving this shoot!
Aren’t the pictures just breathtaking? EVERYTHING about this shoot was so innovative, and it was so cool for us to get to be a part of something so new in the way of design! We absolutely loved how most of the table elements, along with the model’s dress were black so that the stars were really the “shining” point of all the photos! Misty and Mike made sure to time the shoot perfectly so they could capture photos on a night where the sky was clear and the stars were out in full force! Our black tinsel linen draped on the table gave off just the right amount of sparkle to compliment the night sky!

AMAZING job to all vendors involved, see below!

Waterford Wednesday: Elegant Sequin Styled Shoot

Happy Waterford Wednesday, friends!
Remember a couple weeks ago when we posted our Event Style Inspiration, where we talked about extravagant & glamorous versus simple & classic table designs? We gave you a sneak peek of a gorgeous elegant sequin table design photographed by Lauren Simmons Photography, and today we’re excited to show you more from this styled shoot at The Obici House! This particular shoot was a team effort by some of the top vendors in Hampton Roads at the Rising Tide Society Tuesday’s Together. Check out some of our favorite shots:
obici-house-wedding-127-1obici-house-wedding-95-1obici-house-wedding-105-1obici-house-wedding-97-1obici-house-wedding-109-1obici-house-wedding-125-1The inspiration for this shoot was based off of mirror glass and marble, and we have to say that all the vendors involved (see below for a full list!) knocked it out of the park! The sequin linen in this design steals the shows and gives the table an upscale, glamorous and expensive feel! The pop of teal in the chair sashes and satin napkins creates a nice contrast from the vibrant sequin full length linen. We love when Hampton Roads vendors come together to create innovative and exciting designs! Check out Lauren Simmons Photography blog post to see more images from this shoot!

Waterford Wednesday: Modern Styled Shoot

Happy Waterford Wednesday, friends!
Can you believe that August is almost over?! This summer completely flew by, and while we’re sad to see wedding season come to a close, we are super excited about everything that fall will bring! Today we’ve got a modern styled shoot to share with you that the ladies at Jamie Leigh Events conceptualized! Take a look at some of our favorite shots that Raygan Michelle Photography captured:
1V5A19201V5A16321V5A15511V5A15581V5A15731V5A17671V5A17291V5A19341V5A18081V5A1802We absolutely love being part of different styled shoots, and the JLE team did not disappoint with this one! This particular shoot was set up at the Corner Gallery in Norfolk and this venue was the perfect spot to match the modern and playful concept. The bold colors of the napkins mixed with the geometric accents on the place cards and cake made for an interesting design that worked so well! Our Ivory Chiffon linen and Silver Crinkle linen provided the perfect makeshift “runner” down the center of the table, and the way the chiffon hung over the end of the table was swoon-worthy!

Waterford Wednesday: Spring Events Style

Happy Waterford Wednesday, friends!
It’s been a busy month for us so far and all we keep thinking about is the rhyme, April showers bring May flowers! Mother nature seems to be a tad confused on that second part, but there’s no stopping us from fawning over all the spring event themes and decor! Slowly, but surely, the temperatures are warming up and the fresh blooms and lighter color palettes are taking over!

Check out some of our favorite springtime styled shoots that we’ve been a part of lately!Fab-You-Bliss-Wedding-Blog-Mai-Fotography-Sea-Glass-Coastal-Romantic-Wedding-03Fab-You-Bliss-Wedding-Blog-Mai-Fotography-Sea-Glass-Coastal-Romantic-Wedding-29How gorgeous is this romantic sea glass inspired styled shoot that Mai Fotography captured?! Our linen, in seamist, was used on the table and was the perfect shade of green/blue to match the beach backdrop! The whole shoot, featured on Fab You Bliss, had us thinking of the warm spring and summer days ahead! Check out the feature for a full list of the top notch vendors that were involved!

Water-Table-Coastal-Copper-Inspired-Wedding-by-Elizabeth-Friske-Photography_0057Water-Table-Coastal-Copper-Inspired-Wedding-by-Elizabeth-Friske-Photography_0029This coastal copper inspired styled shoot is another recent favorite of ours! Light blues, teals and other varying shades of blue are SO popular right now, and we are loving every second of it! Our Austrian Wave linen, in white, was the perfect addition to create some texture and a crisp looking design! Head over to Elizabeth Friske Photography, the amazing photographer behind these shots, to see more photos along with a full vendor list!

JDE_Branding-0120_zpsdkl5xyn4Earlier this year we were so excited and honored to be a part of Just Dandy Events branding shoot! Elizabeth Henson Photos captured all of the gorgeous images, and we had serious heart eyes (you know, the emoji kind!) over the color palette and vision as a whole! Again, the varying shades of blues and greens just screamed “spring!” to us. Our napkins, table runner, sashes & white chiavari chairs were all used in this stunning design! Check out the awesome vendors here!

Waterford Wednesday: Romantic Garden Styled Shoot

It’s Waterford Wednesday, friends!
If you’ve been reading the blog for awhile you know that styled shoots are one of our favorite ways to see our linens showcased! When you add in the fact that this particular styled shoot used “Romantic Garden” to describe the concept, we are ALL for it! Heart’s Content Events and Design totally nailed the concept with the most romantic details and touches of varying shades of pink! We’ll let the gorgeous photos by Kimberly Florence Photography do the talking!HeartsContentEventsStyledShoot-211HeartsContentEventsStyledShoot-135HeartsContentEventsStyledShoot-142HeartsContentEventsStyledShoot-117HeartsContentEventsStyledShoot-154HeartsContentEventsStyledShoot-46HeartsContentEventsStyledShoot-34HeartsContentEventsStyledShoot-30We can’t get over how beautiful everything turned out! Of course, the Hermitage Museum & Gardens was the perfect location to provide a gorgeous backdrop to make our linens and the rest of the decor really stand out! We absolutely loved all of the whimsical touches and the pink and green pastel colors sprinkled throughout the ceremony and table set up! Of course, any styled shoot that has a model in a BLUSH wedding dress is bound to be amazing, right?! Check out Glamour & Grace for more photos!
