Weddings Here and Away :: Website Redesign

Everyone loves a little “before & after” action, am I right?

A few months ago, Andrea of Weddings Here and Away contacted me about designing and building a website for her destination wedding planing business based in Oregon and Hawaii. I jumped at the opportunity to design a website and learn the backend of making a WordPress powered website (with lots and LOTS of help from Mr. Knight).

Check out the before and after:

Weddings Here and Away

This is just one of the many many things Mr. Knight and I have been up to these past few months. When I started my little Etsy shop, Gator Bride Designs, I had no idea I would be doing anything beyond designing custom wedding stationary for Brides. I’ve had a great time putting together custom table signs, water bottle labels, holiday party invitations, and so much more for my sweet Brides, but I had no idea my skills would spill over into web design. It’s been a tough road, for sure, but I’ve learned so much along the way.

It’s funny where life takes you and the opportunities you are presented with. Who knew just doing a fun little blog for our friends would turn into a fun side job?

By the way, anyone notice anything different about  the Gator Bride blog design? Maybe a little Santa hat? Yup! The cake topper representation of Mrs. Gator has been Santa-fied! I love decorating for the holidays, and extending my holiday decor to the blog seemed like the next step of out of control holiday decorating. :)

    Got your card yesterday! We had to re-order so we’ll send yours out as soon as they’re in. Pete asked me who Kimberly & Kyle on our fridge were – it was cute of him. (He also asked if Kyle would say “who the heck are Pete and Hannah?”)

    Merry almost Christmas!

    @Hannah: We just got in a few cards from WeddingBee Bee’s and Kyle is already saying, “Who are these people?” We are enjoying all the different holiday card designs!
