Lovestru.ck Website Redesign

I have been working on updating our website and brand image for the past few months. I knew we needed a fresh and sophisticated logo and website that would compliment our design style and the experience we provide our clients. I’ll post more about our new logo in the next few weeks, but I wanted to share the new features and look of our website with all of your first.

I wanted to website to look clean, natural, and feminine. Here’s an image of the homepage:

Our services page includes all of the information about our new wedding packages.

I love our new portfolio page too. It includes images of some of our favorite projects as well as testimonials from our clients.

Our blog needed a lot of work. I wanted to include more social media interaction, so I added the Instagram feed on the sidebar and Pinterest hover buttons on all of the images.

Inclosed Website Redesign

I’ve been meaning to blog about Inclosed‘s amazing website redesign for awhile now. It seems like the perfect time to share this beautiful website (developed by What Cheer) as I’m prepping to launch my new site tomorrow. Lesley’s website really showcases Inclosed’s design and letterpress skills.

Take some time to play around with this website. I LOVE that Inclosed now offers online customization. They have so many adorable options to choose from and you can customize the fonts and colors to exactly what you want. To borrow a phrase from Lesley – It’s so stink’n cute!

Alexis + Luke

Alexis and Luke both attended college at UNK, but they met for the first time in the Czech Republic while studying abroad in the same travel program. They immediately fell in love and started dating, and they continued their relationship through their adventures in Europe, trips around the US, and the rest of their undergrad years. They began law school together in 2010, and they married right before their final year of coursework.

Alexis and Luke have such a great love story, so we included a lot of personal elements in their wedding. The couple’s welcome table included photos from their travels that we framed and matted with antique maps, and their guests left messages on Eastern European postcards as an alternative guestbook.

We mixed Alexis’ love of preppy navy stripes with soft and romantic lace and baby’s breath. The biggest design feature of the reception was the midnight snack table. Alexis and Luke LOVE candy and “treats”, so we went all out and created a sugar rush buffet.

We loved working with this beautiful couple, and we wish them many years of happiness and adventures!

Happy Weekend

Photo via Pinterest

Rich and I received a gift certificate to a wonderful art gallery in Omaha for our wedding (from my amazing bestie Maggie). We’ve been saving it until we had a house to hang it in, so we’re finally going to look at art this weekend. We’ve never been to a museum together and we’re not really “art people”, so it should be interesting to find out what each other likes…

Sara + Scott

Sara and Scott were such a wonderful couple to work with and get to know while planning their wedding. Sara is in grad school and writes a fabulous food blog, and Scott is an innovative (that’s an understatement) artist. I was immediately on board with Sara and Scott’s vision for their wedding – a simple ceremony at Mark’s Bistro with a relaxed backyard reception the following day. We wanted to recreate the look and feel of the European sidewalk cafes, so we brought in mismatched furniture from Nostalgia and we placed a chalkboard sandwich board sign in their front yard to welcome guests to their home. We really transformed Sara and Scott’s backyard, but the star of the show was the food. The Grey Plume was beyond amazing. I can still taste the chocolate macarons.

The Mullers captured the entire wedding, and like always, I’m in love with the photos. See for yourself:

The Lovestruck Event: Part III (The Hotel Photel Photobooth)

We were lucky to have some of the best photographers in Nebraska as vendors at The Lovestruck Event. I have always loved Brighten Photography. If you’re looking for a photographer who brings energy and passion into wedding photography – you have to meet Ben and Whitney of Brighten. I especially love their Hotel Photel photobooth which was featured at The Lovestruck Event. Check out all of the fun photos from the event below!

And now for a photo of Whitney and Ben – you can just tell they’re a blast to work with:

Lesley, Megan and I had to get in on the action too!

Ben and Whitney set up an online gallery, so you can download your Hotel Photel photos. Check it out here (hover over the images and click the download icon).

Here’s Part I and Part II of the Recap in case you missed it!

The Lovestruck Event Recap: Part II

We decided to have two mock tablescapes at the event to showcase how our vendors work together. The first tablescape was created by the Lovestru.ck team, Shamrock & Thistle, and Inclosed (the little cakes were made by Butterfly Bakery). We wanted to create something colorful and innovative but not overwhelming, so we balanced our bright colors with natural wooden elements like the farm table. True to this year’s theme, we used polka dots and stripes in the stationery, accessories and even in the floral arrangements (did you see that floral table runner!?!). Here’s what we came up with:

The second table was designed by Found and Flora and Porridge Papers. I love the natural and laid-back style mixed with a touch of whimsy. Porridge Papers brought in a picnic table, and the bicycle get-away vehicle and s’mores were adorable!
