Welcome to our last Waterford Wednesday post of 2015!
We can hardly believe this year is coming to an end…2015 was such a huge year for Waterford in so many ways! When we started using the hashtag #2015isouryear we couldn’t have imagined all of the amazing accomplishments and milestones we would have achieved! Take a look at some of our favorite and most exciting moments of the year!
Our 2015 started off on a high note when we found out that we were chosen as one of The Knot Best Of Weddings Hall Of Fame recipients for Virginia! This particular title is given to what The Knot refers to as “the best of the best” within the industry and we were thrilled to start our #2015isouryear motto off with this special honor! Winter 2015 also saw us through another VOW Bridal Show, which is always an exciting event for us to show off our creativity and meet sweet new clients. This year, we teamed up with some of our favorite industry friends to create an epic garden-inspired booth!
Springtime definitely brought some of the most exciting and biggest milestones for Waterford this year! The beginning of March marked Waterford’s 4 year anniversary of being in business. The saying “time flies when you’re having fun,” could not be any more true! The remainder of the Spring was dedicated to gearing up for the insane wedding season that was upon us and most importantly, our 2nd Annual Crystal Clear Vision Event! Our Crystal Clear event’s 2nd year was filled with top-notch industry professionals, insanely beautiful and ornate table designs and so many eager brides! It really could not have been any more perfect…check out all of our posts about the event here. Oh yeah, and we also added some gorgeous silver and gold beaded chargers to our inventory!
Summer brought us our craziest wedding season to date! Due to the crazy amount of weddings we were providing linens for, it was necessary for us to hire more staff members, and we were thrilled that Rob Korb Photography was able to take updated group shots for us. We also got to introduce everyone to our staff in our Feature Friday: Staff Edition posts! Summer was also the season of big announcements for us. We were excited to “shout it from the rooftops” that we opened up a 2nd office location to provide us more room for our growing linen inventory (follow along with our progress at #waterfordofficeupgrade). Our product inventory had a little growth spurt as well with our announcement of white chiavari chairs on location at The Water Table!
Fall/End Of Year
As the busy wedding season came to a close and the end of the year approached we were thrilled to announce that A Crystal Clear Vision: Year 3 was in the works! Our Fall was filled with many styled shoots and we were so excited to be featured on the Style Me Pretty Living blog for a very special “glamping” baby shower. The biggest announcement of the Fall was that Waterford will own and start renting gold chiavari chairs starting March 2016! We rounded out our year with exciting meetings with 2016 brides, and of course, a holiday party with our amazing staff!
We can’t WAIT to see what amazing things 2016 brings, see you guys next year 🙂
