Our Wedding Blog

Feature Guest: Waterford Event Rentals

We are total fanatics when it comes to blogging about the wedding industry & giving our own insight, but we also love to give some insight from other vendors who specialize in different aspects of weddings. We want you to get to know the whole package when it comes to planning or designing your wedding, so we have asked Waterford Event Rentals to be a featured guest on today’s blog! Sit back & read about all of the wonderful things they have to say about their side of the industry!

Wedding-Decor-Boho-Chic-Lesner-Inn-Virginia-Beach.jpgOf everything you have available to rent, what would you say would help spruce up a wedding reception the most & why?

As little as it seems, napkins are a huge part of wedding décor! May sound silly, but they’re in every picture of the table-scape & can add a pop of color, fun print or just a little texture to the table. Napkins are an easy, budget friendly addition that can make a difference, even if the client is using linen that their venue provides!

What items do you provide for clients to rent?

We are a full service linen rental company that specializes in allllll things linens! We of course offer the basics, but we have a big selection of specialty & even custom print linens. We’re always willing to order in something new! Not only do we specialize in linens, but we also rent chairs & plate chargers. We have gold, mahogany & white chiavari chairs, as well as white resin folding chairs. We also have both resin & glass beaded chargers. We are currently expanding our inventory, so stay tuned for our newest additions!

Would you say chair sashes or covers are necessary?

Chair covers & sashes are definitely important, but totally not a must have! We may think differently though 😉 Let’s say there are 15 tables & 150 guests. A table linen will only be on 15 of the tables, while a chair sash will be on 150 chairs. Makes such a bigger impact to the room!

Have you seen a trend in a specific type or color of linen?

All the neutrals! We see a ton of ivory, blush & gold… but we’re totally not mad about it! Such a romantic color scheme that doesn’t seem like it will ever go out of style. Add a pop of sequins in there & call it a day!

Hardest question ever… but we LOVE seeing the room transform! Walking into a completely empty venue & walking out a few hours later with lighting, linens, florals, music, etc., it’s such a surreal feeling. Knowing that Waterford has made a small impact in someone’s BIG day is such an amazing feeling. Definitely will never get old!

We adore Waterford Event Rentals & work with them all throughout the year, so if you love what you read today, contact them directly or ask us how to get in touch with them so we can help your wedding vision come true!

    ENTIRE VENUE

    Working with Lindsey and the Lesner Inn was great! I planned the majority of my wedding from out of town and Lindsey could not have been more patient with my constant emails. The venue looked beautiful at the reception and my guests loved the views and the food. The crab cakes were everyone’s favorite. Thank you so much to the Lesner Inn team and & Lindsey for such a beautiful wedding!

    I could NOT be happier with the service from Lesner Inn. Our coordinator Liz was SO helpful each time we met with her and had questions. The ceremony and receptions spaces were absolutely beautiful. If I had to do it all over again I wouldn’t change a thing and I would recommend this venue to anyone!

    Girls at the Lesner Inn, Wow! I can’t believe it’s been just about a year since Jon and I came through the doors and knew that this would be the place we say “I do”. You guys are awesome and made planning a breeze even for this bride who didn’t have it all together. Thank you guys so much for everything, our day was perfect!

  • It's been a while since you've seen the faces behind the doors of Lesner Inn so we wanted to introduce our managers! First off… our fearless leader, Alexis Hionis. Alexis is a Virginia Beach native, born and bred. She is a graduate of the University of Virginia and after a short stint in the Los Angeles event industry, she returned to her East Coast beach roots. With an inherent love for all things wedding, paired with her creative energy and attention to detail, Alexis has found her home at The Lesner Inn. Since 2010, she has overseen hundreds of weddings but still hasn't grown tired of the excitement of the big day...and the wedding cakes. When she isn't in the office, you’ll find her giving back to the community she loves so much, through her nonprofit, @riseVB. Fun fact: she was recognized for her efforts in 2018 when she won Coastal Virginia Biz’s Best Local Leader Making A Difference award!
