After 5+ years of helping Melissa at I…Do Weddings maintain and support her website (originally designed by someone else), it was time to redesign it – giving it both a visual facelift and make it easier to use, navigate and manage.
Overall, it was a “Modern Refresh” both look & feel and under the hood. The original site was actually a good design, but lacking some of the modern-day features both up front to the user and behind the scenes for anyone managing the site and search engines. The new site features a full-width template to allow the big, beautiful images that Melissa has collected over the 14+ years she had been in business to go across the screen and be better highlighted, a larger typeface to make it easier reading both desktop and mobile, and a simpler navigation system to make the site easier to navigate. Behind the scenes, we “stripped” out years and years of old posts and other “web design junk” left behind. We also ensure it is fully responsive for good use on mobile devices and tablets. The site was moved to a new web hosting platform to give it a speed boost – good for users and search engines!
