Welcome back to another Feature Friday: Staff Edition!
We’ve got another awesome Waterford member to introduce you to today. Keep reading below to meet Ariana, one of our Event Staff members who we adore!
Name: Ariana Spencer
Position: Event Staff
How long have you been with Waterford?: I was hired in December of 2014, so about 8 months
College/Major: I’m a senior at Hickory High. . .not quite there yet, haha!
Favorite WER Memory: My favorite memory would have to be all of our team meetings. It’s so fun being with everyone and catching up and just enjoying each other and our job!
Describe yourself in 3 words: Outgoing, Caring, Joyful
Describe WER in 3 words: Loving, Professional, Amazing!
What do you love most about working at WER?: Definitely the bond all of us have, it’s not just a boss, manager, and coworkers; it’s literally friends that feel like family and such amazing women who I look up to in every way!
Favorite Linen: This is so hard, but I would have to go with our Champagne Sequins!
Favorite Sash Tie: I love a wrap around obi, it’s so pretty!
What linen trend are you loving this wedding season?: This is my first wedding season, but I would have to say having so much variety and not just one linen throughout, mixing up Sequins and Rossete is one of my favorite combos!
If you aren’t working, where would we find you on the weekend?: At the beach or hanging out with my awesome friends, family, and boyfriend!
Craziest setup story: Oh lord! Probably when me and Brooke had to tie over a hundred sashes and lay chair covers in 45 minutes! It was so crazy yet so rewarding when we finished!
What is your favorite part of the setup process at an event?: Definitely comparing what the venue looked like before and then comparing it to after we’ve added our touch!
What is the most significant thing you’ve learned from working in the event industry?: Working in the wedding industry has taught me about time management and how important it is to ALWAYS be on time! Things are crazy and always changing so it’s good to just be prepared for anything.
Don’t forget to check back with us each Friday as we feature and introduce
you to our Waterford staff members!
