The goal of the site was to showcase the client’s services and provide an easy way to contact her. Our client also wanted to add a blog page, where she can share her thoughts and ideas. In the future, she will be adding a link to her shop, so we prepared a shop link for her to add whenever it is ready.

For the project, the team was able to decide which clients we wanted. From there we prepared questions and any clarifications we needed for our first meeting. We were mainly listening to the client and their needs, giving suggestions when needed. Afterward, we created a document outlining the scope of the project, making sure we are on the same page.

Once approved, we started working on the wireframes and the coding portion for the functionalities. We also prepared style tiles for the client, sharing the overall feeling of the website.

We wanted to create a sweet romantic theme within the website to compliment the idea of weddings. One of the client’s requests was to have watercolor elements throughout the page. We did this by using a custom watercolor banner on top and the bottom of all the pages. We also incorporated paint brush strokes throughout to add a crafty vibe as well.

Customized banner and watercolor social media icons were made with photoshop to elevate the theme of the website.

Brush strokes on hover were added to add a fun element for the user when going through the navigation links. Furthermore, the brush stroke stays on the name of the current page to indicate where the user is.

Merry Me Wedding was created using WordPress. Since it is a content management system, we added restrictions for the client.

The team wanted to design the dashboard in a way where the user can easily edit through her website. We used tools such as the plugin Advanced Custom Fields (ACF) which allows us to increase the ease of use.

There was a bug in the navigation bar. When resizing the screen, the mobile menu would appear instead of the desktop. Since jQuery’s slideToggle was used, we needed to remove the inline class it created. matchMedia was used to create a media query within jQuery.

"Lia was my website designer/developer for my wedding website. Lia is always so quick to respond to my emails and was always on time with the deliverables. I am impressed by our meetings as she is always ready with the materials and examples to show me how my website may look like. In addition, when the website is passed over to me, she has taken the extra step to make sure I have videos to show me how to update and revise different aspects of my website. I really appreciate the care Lia has put in without affecting efficiency and delivering on time. The website went above my expectations, and I would definitely recommend working with Lia on your website."
