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:

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!

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! Our gold chiavari chairs with ivory chiffon sashes weaved through the back complimented the blush and gold vintage place settings on the sweetheart table that Mad Hatter Vintage created.
