“Zach’s a homegrown Arizona boy who met the love of his life and future bride at church. They were both volunteering as youth leaders for eighth grade students when they met. Through their work with the church, they got to know each other on a deeper level. Samma learned to respect Zach for the solid, God-loving man that he is, and Zach came to see Samma’s passion and commitment. It didn’t take long for these two to go from co-leaders to the cutest couple around. These two will tie the knot this coming fall in a Christian ceremony, surrounded by friends, loved ones and hopefully a few of those eighth graders they mentored together.” –Genevieve Hansen Photography
How did you find your photographer?
We saw her pictures she did for another wedding at our wedding venue and we loved the way the photos looked right away!
What are you DIY-ing for your wedding?
We DIY’ed our donut stands, the entrance doors to our wedding aisle, the ceremony arbor, giant yard games, table numbers and all of the signage!
What are you looking forward to the most?
The donut bar and variety of cakes!!! -Samma, the bride
Hi brides and grooms! Lauren here from I Love Love Events. Today I’m sharing a post that’s very apropos for what’s happening in my own business, working on my branding. I am in it! Learning about all aspects of a brand, from color scheme, to logo, to fonts to the brand voice. There are so many decisions when it comes to branding a business, and all those rules can apply to your wedding to! If you want to wow your guests with a consistent look and feel for your day, you should follow all the same principles I am following for my business. The good news is that the “who” of the brand is already decided, it’s you as a couple! You already have a voice, you already have your audience (guests), naturally you’ll come up with a color scheme, all that’s left is to create a consistent look and if you’d like extra points, create a wedding logo, and that’s what this post is all about.
A wedding logo might sound over the top and completely unnecessary, and it is, but when the look all comes together the impact is awesome! How do you create your own logo? First come up with the feel of your wedding? Is it romantic? You may lean toward a hand drawn floral. Is your wedding modern and clean? Try simple typography. How about a classic wedding? An updated twist on a monogram could be perfect. Are you savvy with Photoshop or Illustrator? Why not take a stab at creating a logo yourself? Maybe you can enlist the help of a graphic design friend to point your in the right direction. Or if you have it in the budget, search “custom wedding logo” on Etsy to hire a professional to help.
Now that you have a logo, how do you use it? There are literally hundreds of ideas and details to “brand” in your wedding. Below are 15 perfect places to add your personal touch and create a consistent and cohesive look and element throughout your day!
