Starry Night Barn is a wedding barn located in Leelanau County, just north of Suttons Bay. If you are looking for a dreamy location to get married in Leelanau County, Starry Night Barn is the spot. The barn and property are absolutely gorgeous. The owner is wonderful to work with and it’s amazing to watch her business blossom. We are honored to be part of their success.
We were excited to build a custom WordPress website for Starry Night Barn & Studios as soon as we heard their business name. When we began work on the website design, the barn was still under construction. This offered a unique challenge in regards to finding images to work with. So, we started searching for stock photos of dreamy, twinkle-lit weddings to match their brand. To add a personal touch, the owner connected with local wedding photographers to use imagery of real newlyweds.
The goal was to create a website that would inspire couples to book weddings for the following year. The last time we spoke with the owner, she had successfully started filling her calendar!
To start this project we did a free consultation, followed by a proposal. Once the proposal was accepted we began to work designing and building a dreamy website to match the owner’s vision. The site started out being mostly informational. Since we launched it in 2016 we have added a few new features.
We helped design and develop a free planning guide with email sign up to give to couples planning their big day. We also created a custom plugin to help manage the Vendors and Starry Night Barn Weddings. They now have a great collection of weddings that new couples can draw inspiration from. As well as, a robust resource of local wedding vendors.
We couldn’t be happier with the websites Debra at LaLa Projects developed for our two businesses, Starry Night Barn & Studios and Century Farm Cottages. Debra has great design intuition and being an amazing artist herself certainly helps! She picked up quickly on the aesthetic we were looking for and continually helps us with new ideas and site management. LaLa Projects is the best web design team we’ve worked with by far, and we’ve tried more than a few over the years.
