A Magical Woman’s Club Wedding

What’s up everyone? It’s Wednesday and we are finally kicking off the fall wedding season! In the last couple of weeks, things have finally ramped up for us & have us feeling normal again. We are so happy to be back in some of our favorite venues getting to make out couple’s wedding day dreams come true. Just a couple weeks ago we got photos back from a magical wedding we were a part of in July at one of our favorite spots- The Woman’s Club of Portsmouth!

Take a look at these incredible images to see just a glimpse of what we have to offer you!

We just can’t get enough of views like these. The tall ceilings, the chandelier, the gold chiavari chairs with a stunning arch like this one! I mean come on, does it get any better than this!?Debating on a head table? Well, you may have just gotten your answer right here. We love the sophisticated & elegant look that head tables bring and when topped with a stunning boa of greenery it doesn’t get any better than this! Wondering what else you can add to your reception space to add a more romantic feel? Sashes, and chiffon sashes woven through a chiavari chair is just everything! This may or may not be our favorite tie when it comes to giving chiavari chairs that extra oomph!Adding on a sweetheart table is a great way to make sure you and your new spouse get to spend that extra quality time together on what seems like such a fast paced night! After getting a chance to chat with all of your guests it’s such an intimate way to give you all that time just for the two of you!And who doesn’t love a BOMB cake table shot, amirite? Having a beautiful linen, or in this case, paired with a show stopping floral arch is the perfect way to elevate that cake table shot & ensure some beautiful photos when it comes time to cut the cake! We love a good cake table photo that just captures the beauty of all the things- linens, cake, floral, it’s just PERFECTION.
And when it comes to table decor, nothing is off limits. Whether you’re dramatic & show stopping with the centerpieces or simple but breathtaking, you’re sure to get some beautiful photos of what was once an idea, but now a reality!Congrats to Jeff & Paige! Thank you so much for letting us be a part of your amazing wedding day! We wish you love & happiness for the rest of time!

The Summer Social Fest 2020

Hey there! Happy JULY 1st!!!!! How crazy is it that we are already halfway through 2020??? This month is also a very special time in that we are hosting our first ever VIRTUAL bridal show with our main chick, Missy with Antonia Christianson Events. This is our second year hosting our super fun, laid back, Summer Social bridal event only with a twist! Instead of having our guests and vendors meet one another at The Woman’s Club of Portsmouth, we are going LIVE on Facebook.

We do love events, but we love our couples and vendor friends even more and we just didn’t think it was safe to risk having this event in person. But don’t be fooled, we have A LOT in store for our guests! Take a peek below to learn all about what’s going down the weekend of July 17-19 streamed exclusively through Facebook Live.

What bridal show could be complete without prizes? Yupp! None of them!! Of course we have rallied our closest vendor friends to bring you couples some prizes and much more! Note- you must be REGISTERED for the event in order to win. You can find the link on our Facebook page, Antonia Christianson Events Facebook, The Summer Social Facebook, AND our website. Not only do we have prizes but we have a FULL BLOWN FASHION SHOW. You will see none other than the hottest new trends from the ladies at Studio I Do Bridals. Another great bit is that we have some local venues giving some virtual tours for those struggling to find the perfect place to say I do!But how do you know who is going to a part of such a cool event? We gotcha covered there too! Below is the list of over 25 vendors ready and prepared to sign on and meet you VIRTUALLY. They will be telling you all about their business and the services they offer & will leave time to answer your questions at the end! Make sure to have some questions written down so you don’t forget.Let’s talk prizes! First we just have to take a second to thank our incredible vendors for being SO generous to donate to some lucky couples while COVID has really hit our industry hard. Here are just a few of the prizes we have to offer! Dragon Photo Studio offering a FREE engagement session with purchase of a wedding package, Studio I Do offering a FREE VIP dress fitting for one lucky bride and 8 GUESTS- that’s over a $200 value! Rusty Cottage Vintage Rentals offering 20% off a wedding rental package. The Posh Pair offering a free makeup trial- $150 value! The list just keeps growing!! We anticipate having tons of fun raffles for you that will make your time so worth it.

I know  I speak for all of us vendors when we say that we can’t wait to meet you! We know life has been crazy these last few months & events have come to a halt. But we are optimistic in the future of 2020 and beyond! Let’s plan some events!

Waterford Wednesday: Michael & Morgan’s Wedding

Spring has sprung and you know what that means…wedding season is upon us!  The beautiful weather, the gorgeous blooming of flowers, and the love of being outdoors really excites us Waterford gals for all of the weddings we are going to help execute and decorate in Hampton Roads this season!  Michael and Morgan’s special day on March 2, 2019 at the Woman’s Club of Portsmouth proves to still reign as one-of-a-kind in our books, so much so that Mickey Mouse made a special guest appearance on their wedding day!  Talk about unforgettable!

From the small details and final touches that added personalization to the love that was shared by each attendee of their wedding, this was one of the highlights for our season so far.  Take a look at some of our absolute favs from Michael and Morgan’s magical wedding:

All Photography : Chelsea Anderson

We might be a little biased, but isn’t the Woman’s Club of Portsmouth just the most beautiful place to say “I do”?!  What a breathtaking wedding Michael and Morgan had back in March!  By keeping the color palette classic with pink, white, and gold along with touches of greenery, their wedding exuded elegance and sophistication.  The Gold-Beaded Glass Chargers with the Banded Baby Pink Satin Napkins and Gold Chiavari Chairs truly complimented the Woman’s Club of Portsmouth‘s interior features.

Let us know what you think about this gorgeous wedding!

Great job to all vendors involved:

Waterford Wednesday: Rebecca + Cody’s Wedding

Friends, today is the day!
This Waterford Wednesday is extra special because it’s all about our dear Rebecca’s wedding! Rebecca + Cody got married late last year (11.11.17!), and we’re thrilled to finally be able to share the pictures that Kirstyn Marie Photography captured, along with some inside scoop from the bride herself! Check out the mini interview we did with Rebecca below and some of our favorite shots from the big day! Make sure to read all the way to bottom to check out the epic vendor list who made this wedding one for the books!
What was your vision for your wedding?
“I really wanted something that was going to feel classic and elegant, but at the same time, a fun party! Stage Right Lighting made all my dreams come true with the draping and lighting. The lighting changed colors throughout the night and really gave the atmosphere the “fun” vibe I wanted!”
After working in the linen industry, there was obviously a lot of interest in what linens you would choose! Was there one linen you absolutely had to have?
“Silver Marble! It simply didn’t exist in our area, so we got them custom made. Fun and trendy, but beautiful at the same time!”
What linens did you use?
“Silver Marble, Grey Natural, Grey Velvet, Champagne Sequins, Silver Petal, Ivory Aphrodite, Ivory Crinkle and Khaki Polyester. All the things! There’s no such thing as too many linens as long as they all flow!”
Did you plan every aspect of your wedding, or have help?
HECK NO! I would be nothing without my best gal, Missy, owner of Antonia Christianson Events! It was her vision to make the ceremony space completely draped and creating a “tunnel” for guests to walk through. EVERYONE loved it! She’s seriously a design queen! She was right by my side throughout the whole entire process, went to every meeting with me and guided me along the way. I promise I let Cody (my hubby) pick out 2 things: food and alcohol! 🙂
Any last minute thoughts on your wedding?
BEST DAY EVER. Hands down!

Our khaki table linens, ivory napkins, and gold glass beaded chargers were the perfect trio to make up the beautiful and elegant guest tables!
