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
Desserts // Cake Delights
Stationary // Paper Dolls Design
Models // Rebecca Norfleet (WER), Elise Hemler, Hayley Hightower (WER) and Hanna Barker

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!

Happy Waterford Wednesday!

We are SO pumped to be back on our blogging game and we can’t wait to keep everyone updated on the crazy and exciting happenings of Waterford! Whether or not you’re in the market for some amazing linens (which you totally should be!), trust us when we say that you’ll enjoy the weekly posts that we have planned!

Although spring has technically been here for about a month, it has definitely sprung in the past week and we are enjoying this gorgeous weather as we gear up for the busy summer ahead of us. In our world, we don’t have summer. . .we have wedding season. You know, the late spring and warm summer months where brides take advantage of the beautiful weather to get hitched? Yep, that’s when our crazy multiple events a day, extreme sash tying, precision linen laying, and everything in between really comes into play! As we (hopefully!) say goodbye to the cold, we’re at the top of our game, fully staffed with an amazing boss and group of girls, and moving full steam ahead as we take on our busiest event season since Waterford started. Thanks to the experience we got with our winter brides we couldn’t be more prepared for the exciting season ahead of us and we can’t wait to share each step of the way with you!

While you’ll get to hear about what we’ll be up to this summer in real time, we want to catch everyone up on 2 fun events that Waterford was involved in over the past couple of months!

VOW Bridal Show

Photo Feb 23, 10 36 05 AMDuring the winter, we are always thrilled to get creative and participate in the VOW Bridal Show! While we engage in many bridal shows throughout the year, we were so excited about the VOW show and seeing the amazing “Waterford Candyshop” we created, with the help of Alisa of Botanique Events, come to life! We ended up taking home the top awards from the show: Best in Show & People’s Choice Awards. We were so honored to receive these awards and really enjoyed getting to meet and work with so many new brides!

A Crystal Clear Vision was our very first experience in hosting a bridal event! The event, a tabletop style, featured some of the best designers, wedding planners, and florists in the area showing off different reception style settings for bride’s viewing pleasure. We couldn’t have anticipated the immense amount of support we received and we can’t wait for our show to be featured in the spring/summer edition of the The Wedding Planner Magazine. You’ll have to check back when the issue comes out as we will be sharing tons of pictures and featuring all of the amazing designers that were a part of our special day! We are so blessed to be able to work with such amazing, talented professionals and we owe a huge thank you to Cedrick Harris with The Wedding Corner, Stage Right Lighting, Dragon Photo Studio, David Schwartz Photography, and the Double Tree of Virginia Beach for sponsoring our show!

So, now that you have a little peak into our world, we hope you’ll come back and join us every Wednesday as we update you on all things Waterford! Until then, keep up with us daily on
