My wedding website

This is probably the most fun project that I have worked on as it combined by talents with my personal life. We wanted a really fun and inviting website that was clear, accessible, and had lots of information for all of our guests. 

Our wedding was Starry Night themed. We used a reproduction that my grandmother painted in several places.

As my wife and I have been a guest of many weddings with unclear and unhelpful websites. One of my biggest pet peeves is not having any knowledge of what I’m doing or where I’m going ahead of time.

For our website we had several criteria that needed to be met:

The first was that our site would be as unique as we are, this came into play with the fun colors, images, and background textures. I think we were playing a lot of Animal Crossing at the time, so I was inspired and used bright colors, thick borders, and fun textured backgrounds. 

The second was that we would clearly list out all information that guests needed to know such as the dress code, menu, and schedule of events.

Lastly, we wanted it to feature our love story so we included a gallery page with pictures organized by year.

A guest "information board" with the critical info; designed to look like notes on a physical wooden message board
List of things to do in the area, made to look like it's on a clipboard/corkboard
Our full menu, arranged so our guests wouldn't be surprised when dinner was served
A gallery section with a fun background
A gallery section with a fun background

The RSVP page needed to function as well as be friendly for all ages to use as it was our only method of RSVPing to the wedding. We did receive feedback that even grandparents were able to use the site to RSVP on their own so I believe we achieved this goal!
