Waterford Wednesday: Weekend Recap

We’re back again for another glorious edition of Waterford Wednesday!
This past week/weekend was SO busy with a ton of pick-ups, deliveries, setups & breakdowns. Our staff definitely got a real taste of the busy wedding season as we were hustling back and forth between many events!

One of the things we love to do at Waterford is take “behind the scenes” pictures of our events so we can really see how our linens transform a venue. We thought it’d be fun to share some of our before and after pictures from this weekend!

Karen Clements, with Events In Every Occasion did a great job planning this 400 person event! Botanique Events and Stage Right Lighting also did an amazing job bringing the whole gala together with their gorgeous florals and lighting! While some of the Waterford girls were setting up for the gala, one of the chefs came in and complimented us on our hard work and how awesome our linens looked. He then said, “if the dining room doesn’t look good, the guest won’t have high expectations.” We couldn’t agree more with that statement, and it really gave us the boost of energy to finish the setup strong to provide a memorable experience for the guests!

village hallWe always love doing setups at Village Hall in Virginia Beach! We do many setups and breakdowns at this location so it’s always fun to see the banquet area transform depending on the linens that we are providing! At this particular event we used our white chair covers, royal blue organza sashes, royal blue satin overlays, and white polyester napkins! Of course, we steamed everything to perfection as well!

chesa marriottWe loved doing this setup at the Chesapeake Marriott this weekend! This setup was slightly different from the others, because we essentially did a 2 in 1 type of setup! First, we provided ivory chair covers with organza sashes on every other aisle seat for the ceremony seating.

We provided the ivory chair covers, ivory satin sashes (tied in a wrap around knot), ivory satin overlays, and our Rosette on Mesh speciality table linen on the head table! We seriously loved all of the ivory in this setup and how elegant everything looked together!

Whew! Such a busy, fun, exciting weekend! Don’t forget to keep up with us daily on
