Happy New Year’s Eve!
We can’t believe this is our final Waterford Wednesday post of 2014. . .this year truly did fly by!
As each year passes it’s so crazy for us to look back and see how much Waterford has grown in such a short amount of time. We are continually thankful for every single person who supports Waterford: family, friends, fellow vendors, and of course our amazing clients.
2014 was an amazing year filled with so many accomplishments that we had to take a look back on some of our favorite moments and Waterford’s biggest milestones!
The beginning of the year started off fantastic with so many exciting events for us! In January, we hosted our open house to unveil our new warehouse location. It was such a fabulous event attended by all of our loved ones and supporters! We’re so thankful Will Hawkins Photography was on hand so we have pictures to remember. February was a HUGE month for us as we not only participated in the VOW Bridal Event, but we also took home two of the top honors! We were absolutely thrilled to win Best In Show and People’s Choice Award at the show and it definitely got us so excited for the upcoming wedding season!
When spring came it definitely sprung for us! We hit the ground running with our first annual Crystal Clear Vision bridal event that we hosted in March. With this event we got the amazing opportunity to have a six page spread in The Wedding Planner Magazine of Hampton Roads and it’s truly a day and experience with many talented friendors that we will never forget!
April came and our very first Waterford Wednesday post went live. We were so happy to be able to connect with everyone weekly!
The end of spring brought us our first taste of the busy wedding season that was upon us, and gave us the perfect opportunity to give everyone a peak inside “A Day With Waterford.” Making this short video was so fun for us!
Summer brought us our craziest wedding season to date! During this time we hit our 1,000th event which was such an achievement for us as a company that started as a small home business that initially only offered one chair cover option and a few sashes! We were on the go all summer, every single weekend, as we made our way through all of Hampton Roads and fell in love with many gorgeous weddings! Thankfully, we were able to squeeze in a little break to meet up with Rob Korb Photography to take updated company photos! With some awesome new additions to our Waterford team, we were so happy to have gotten some fresh shots of some new faces!
The end of summer meant the end of wedding season. September and October kept us super busy with some gorgeous “fall themed” weddings and a lot of burnt orange! We welcomed the cooler weather and the beginning of booking season with open arms. After a crazy summer we were ready to meet some 2015 brides as well as participate in two awesome bridal shows. . .The Reception Line and Show Bride! The end of fall brought us many Christmas parties and winter weddings to end the year with a bang!
What.A.Year! Looking back on all of these achievements over the past 12 months is so exciting! It’s hard to believe so much was accomplished in just one year. . .we can’t wait to see what 2015 brings! We hope you’ll keep up with us into the New Year as we navigate what is going to be another crazy year!
See you next year!
