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

Floral Decor // Botanique Events

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!

Waterford Wednesday: Favorite Things

Welcome back to another week of Waterford Wednesday!
We’ve loved being able to blog each week and keep all of you updated on the happenings of Waterford! This week, we thought it would be fun to highlight a few of our favorite things. Whether it’s a summer wedding trend or a photo shoot, here are some things we are loving!

Stylized Shoots

We’ve highlighted some stylized shoots our linens were a part of in previous Waterford Wednesday posts, but this particular shoot was extra special to Waterford! With the concept by Morlina Events and photographed by Will Hawkins Photography, this nautical themed shoot featured two of Waterford’s own. Rebecca, Waterford’s Event Staff Supervisor portrayed a beautiful bride in the shoot, while Hayley, a new Waterford Event Staff member made a gorgeous bridesmaid! As much as we love seeing our linens come to life on camera, it’s extra sweet when we can see some of our staff members in front of the camera rather than behind the scenes. Look out for a future post when we can show you more of these photos!

We just love a good napkin! Napkins really do bring a whole table together and can provide an extra pop of color events often need. Waterford has always provided napkins, but lately we’ve really gotten to experiment with interesting napkin folds and we are eager to continue to try more! Featured above are just a few of the many colors we provide folded in a pocket fold, french pleat, and tri-fold. We love how elegant the french pleat folded napkin in Blush looks against our gold plate charger!

The summer months mean outdoor weddings and we could not be any more thrilled about that! There’s just something about a warm summer night wedding that makes us happy! We absolutely loved how our table linens, napkins, and chair covers paired with both of these adorable outdoor receptions. Any time a wedding features twinkling lights or a stunning view, count us in!

Keep checking back each week for Waterford Wednesday! We’ve got some exciting posts coming up! We are doing a blog makeover in the coming weeks to update our staff members photos and we’re so excited to introduce everyone to some new Waterford members!

Why Linens?

We thought today may be the perfect day to talk about why it’s important to include linens in your must haves when it comes to your wedding reception needs.

When it comes to planning your wedding, your choice in linens is just as important as your choice in flowers or catering.  Many brides do not realize how this choice can affect the overall atmosphere of their wedding, until it’s too late.

The impact linens can have on your reception space is due to the fact of how much room they take up and also that every table has one.  Linens will not only cover your table, but touch all the way to the floor and rid you of those ugly table legs.  Ill fitting or low quality linens will attract negative attention, which no one wants on their big day. This is why you should use your linen choice to your advantage to add style or complete the theme of your wedding.Photography: Dragon Photo Studio

Use your linens to express your personality, create ambience, or add an extra touch of romance.  You can use bright colors that pop for a fun feel or use lace for a more delicate, romantic touch.  The linens can really tie a wedding’s theme together. Burlap adds an extra touch to both rustic and beach themed weddings.  Navy and White Stripe look great for a nautical theme. While velvet adds a very elegant, classy touch.

Choose between different colors, textures and prints to get the effect you want for your special day. The possibilities are endless!! Just to name a few we have linens in all fabrics ranging from polyester to satin and rosette to sequins. We are sure to have what it is you’re looking for to accomplish your dream wedding.Photography: Meghan Lupyan Photography | Floral: Mann and Wife | Planner: Soirees by Lauren | Venue: Woman’s Club of Portsmouth
