I’ve been waiting so long to share this with you! This has to be one of my favourite projects last year. Ginny Krauss contacted me last September to design her new website. She wanted a beautiful, clean, and easy to navigate website with a romantic wedding-y feel. 🙂 I just knew I would love this project the minute I read her design brief and chatted with her over Skype. I’ve been longing to design something like this for the longest time, and so working with Ginny was a dream come true.
The logo was initially designed by one of her friends, but I changed the fonts on it to give it a more classic look. Typography is really important in designing logos and websites. I actually take a lot of time on typography decisions alone, as it can make or break the design. Her choice of colour palette couldn’t be more perfect! We used thistle and grey for most of the design elements in the site. Touches of blush, bone, and fawn in other elements lighten up the look and make it really romantic.
Below is a screenshot of her homepage. Like most of my WordPress projects, I built the site using the Genesis Framework. It has a subtle lace pattern at the top and bottom in bone. The logo sits perfectly at the top left corner. There is a welcome blurb on the left side, framed in blush, and a slider on the right of all the wedding professionals that Ginny has helped. Three widget areas follow below. Titles are all in Pinyon Script, a classic, beautiful script font that works perfectly with the overall look.
The site has a built-in blog. I think all business sites should have a blog integrated into it. It helps you engage your visitors much better than any static site can ever do, no matter how “interactive” you make it to be. Make sure you visit her website! It’s full of fabulous wedding inspiration and tips. 🙂
