Waterford Wednesday: Lesner Inn Stylized Shoot

Any beach lovers out there?  Us gals at Waterford Event Rentals sure are and absolutely cannot get enough of the ocean’s beauty!  Spring and summer are obviously the more popular seasons to host your event near the water; however, what about those of you out there who want to host a late fall or mid-winter event but yet still want to be close to the water?  Well, this blog is specifically designed for you!

Yes, we know that some of you out there are already planning your winter 2019-2020 events and need a little inspiration.  Don’t fret, because we’re here to make sure you stay “in-the-know” about what trends can be beautifully designed in the cold, bleak temps and still give off that subtle inviting nautical look.

Featured this week on Waterford Wednesday is our January’s stylized shoot at the breathtaking Lesner Inn in Virginia Beach, VA.  See what you think by checking out some of our favs below:

Velvet, the trendsetter for 2019, is an absolute MUST in creating your tablescape.  Pairing the gold tableware with Mauve Velvet Napkins and Navy Polyester Table Linens truly promotes a more welcoming environment to the guests!  Additionally, the warmth evoked from this specific mauve linen proves that this an excellent choice for events in the winter months.

The Eggplant Polyester Napkins truly add a unique touch against the Navy Table Linen and tableware.  Complimentary to the floral design highlighted throughout the shoot, these Eggplant Napkins provide depth and dimension, shying away from the typical nautical flair and going bold!

WOW!  What a breathtaking shoot this was!  The pops of purples, greens, blues, and pinks really just highlight all the best features about the the Lesner Inn and the WATER right behind the venue!

Waterford Wednesday: Beach Stylized Shoot

It’s Waterford Wednesday friends!
September is quickly approaching, and while we’re definitely excited for cooler weather and some fall touches in upcoming weddings, we’re having a hard time letting go of this awesome summer wedding season! Now that our out of town college staff members have headed back to school, it’s hitting us that ready or not, fall is here! We couldn’t end this summer without reminiscing on a gorgeous beach stylized shoot we were recently apart of! Enjoy the gorgeous concept by Jamie Leigh Events and shots by Tara Liebeck Photography!

We are obsessed with the design concept and final results of this “beach/boho” vibe that the team at Jamie Leigh Events came up with!

Feature Friday: Shamrock Stylized Shoot

It’s Feature Friday!
Today we are excited to feature a Shamrock/Irish inspired stylized shoot photographed by Caitlin Gerres Photography. The shoot was designed to showcase inspiration for a bridal shower and featured two of our specialty linens. Our white petal linen served as the base of the mock guest table while our white pinchwheel linen was featured on the drink/cake table. The whole shoot was featured and detailed on the fabulous Tidewater and Tulle blog, including all of the amazing vendors involved! Check out the blog post here to see all of the gorgeous photos that were captured!

Waterford Wednesday: Features & Stylized Shoots

Happy Waterford Wednesday!
We hope everyone was able to enjoy and keep warm from the cold weather and snow from yesterday! One of our very favorite things that we do at Waterford is provide linens for stylized shoots! We love when fellow vendors come to us in search of the perfect linens for the particular theme or vision in their heads. Seeing the final product is the icing on the cake, and today we’ve got some pictures to show from two very beautiful, yet different stylized shoots!

Bright Spring Wedding

The first stylized shoot was a gorgeous Spring inspired setup designed by Amanda Hedgepeth Photography & Dear Sweetheart Events. We were so excited to see these pictures and how the vibrant colors of the linens gave off the perfect bright Spring feel! The sweetheart table setup features our White Rosette On Mesh linen with a hot pink overlay underneath. The little peek-a-boo effect of the overlay is the perfect little surprise and matches well with our satin oasis napkins on top! The cake table is equally as gorgeous with our White Pinchwheel specialty linen under an oasis satin table runner!

50 Shades Of Grey

The second stylized shoot was a sexy 50 Shades of Grey inspired shoot designed by Luxe & Luna Couture Events! The 50 Shades trilogy is massively popular and we thought it was such a brilliant theme idea for this mock engagement session! One of our sequins linens was used on the table and the look is to die for! The champagne color of the sequin looks absolutely gorgeous against those beautiful black velvet chairs! The whole setup gave off a romantic and sexy appeal that we love!

Waterford Wednesday: Embassy Suites Stylized Shoot

Merry Christmas Eve to all!
We hope everyone is having a fabulous holiday break with family, friends, and loved ones! We are definitely enjoying our mini vacation from events, but we are eager to finish out the year strong and then start 2015 with a bang!
Waterford was recently a part of a stylized shoot at the Embassy Suites in Hampton and we finally have some pictures from Dmitry Gotkis Photography to share! We absolutely loved the whole concept and direction of this shoot!

As we’ve mentioned before, our blush linens have been so popular this year and the whole styled table with our gold plate chargers, blush napkins, and champagne pintuck table linen is gorgeous! We absolutely adore the photo of our gold sequence table linen that was used on the mock sweetheart table, the sparkle and shine of the linen was captured so beautifully! We always love to provide linens for stylized shoots, especially when they turn out as wonderful as this one did!

Great job to other participating vendors:
Amanda Cox of Greenhouse Picker Sisters
Stephanie Rolla of Sinful Treats

Check back with us next Wednesday as we look back at some of our favorite events of 2014! It was a crazy busy year,  you’re not going to want to miss it!

Waterford Wednesday: Nautical Stylized Shoot

Happy Waterford Wednesday!
Can you believe it’s already July?! These summer months have been flying by and we can’t believe all of the beautiful events that have come and gone so far! We’re excited to celebrate our nations Independence this weekend and then gear up for some more busy weeks/weekends ahead!

Since July 4th is all about the red, white, and blue, we wanted to share more pictures from the nautical stylized shoot, organized by Michele of MorLina Events and photographed by Will Hawkins Photography, that we first mentioned in our Waterford Wednesday: Favorite Things post! Although the shoot was a gorgeous nautical theme, we love how it incorporated America’s 3 favorite colors!

Our very favorite part about the whole concept and photos is definitely the way that every little detail “pops.” The crisp white of our table linens paired amazingly well with the bright red napkin and flowers as well as the navy and white striped runner! We also love how the colors were the main “nautical” components of the shoot! While there were definitely some adorable nautical touches, the red, white, and blue colors shined through on their own, confirming the nautical aspect! Job very well done on this Michele and Will, we absolutely loved it all!

Other awesome vendors included:
Venue // Crowne Plaza Hampton Marina
Dresses// Maya Couture on Main
Hair and Makeup // Behind the Veil Studios
Floral Decor // Botanique Events
Linens // Waterford Event Rentals

We can’t wait to team up in the future with all of these vendors to hopefully create something just as great! One last thing before we leave today. . .remember back in April when we posted our very first Waterford Wednesday of the wedding season? In that post, we talked about our bridal event A Crystal Clear Vision that we hosted in March and how the show would be featured in the spring/summer edition of The Wedding Planner Magazine. Well, we are SO pleased to announce that the issue is finally coming out THIS MONTH! Stay tuned for the unveiling of the magazine and some inside scoop from us about the event! We can’t wait!
