Wedding Awards

I didn’t have a chance to post this yesterday because we were moving into our new house. It feels good to have our own space again, but we’re not even close to being finished unpacking.

Enjoy this week’s wedding awards!

The New Lovestru.ck Branding

lovestruck-branding-board

As I was designing our new website a few months ago, something wasn’t working as I played with the design in photoshop. I realized our logo didn’t match the new style/aesthetic I was trying to achieve with the website and the Lovestru.ck brand as a whole. I loved how the logo looked like a signature (the “ck” in Lovestru.ck stands for my initials), but it felt bulky and a little too whimsical. With the help of Liz White and the amazing hand-lettering skills of Lauren from A Fabulous Fete, we came up with the logo/patterns/colors seen above in our brand board.

I’m incredibly happy with the end result, but how did we get there…? The process is actually very similar to how we design weddings and events. This past summer as I was dreaming of the new website and collateral for Lovestru.ck, I developed a mood board (see below). The board includes images with specific examples of color and design as well as images that evoke the fresh, sophisticated, feminine, and natural mood/feelings we want to achieve. By comparing every design to our mood board, we were able to make sure the final logo was consistent with our new brand.

Liz + Jason

Liz and Jason are a beautiful and genuine couple. They dated throughout high school at Westside and colleget at TCU, so after many years together, their families were anxiously waiting the arrival of a proposal and a wedding.

As you can tell from her stunning dress, Liz has great personal style. I had the pleasure of taking her polished and chic ideas and transforming them into her dream wedding. Along with concepting the floral arrangements and overall aesthetic, we created some fun stationery items such as the wood-mounted menus and hanging place cards. Once again, Mark from Shamrock & Thistle blew me away by flooding the head table with purple blooms and arranging Liz’s perfect peony bridal bouquet.

All of the photos were taken by the talented Geoff Johnson.
