One of the best parts of my job is learning about the stories of my clients. Some have come from corporate backgrounds, others are stay-at-home moms, others have been in business for years, and others have deep personal connections to their job because it's helped them through some of the toughest times.
Haley from Vintage Oaks Banquet Barn is one of the most positive, resilient people that we've ever come in contact with. We were referred to Haley by the incredible Kara Evans, so we knew that we would fall in love with her from the minute we talked to her.
And we did. And then some.
By the time we got off the phone with Haley, Kelsey and I both had goosebumps and teary eyes. The story and the journey that Haley and her family went through in order to have their dream come true was something that made our jaws drop the entire phone call. They faced hardships of sudden loss of close family, legal battles of obtaining their dream wedding venue, and many small battles in-between. For most people, any of these struggles would've made them walk away or give up on their dream.
Not Haley and her family, though. They trusted their faith in God that this journey was meant for them and they would see it through. Kelsey and I hopped on the phone after our call with Haley and felt so inspired, so honored, and we felt our hearts completely, 100% meant for this project with Haley.
When you open up the brand new website for Vintage Oaks Banquet Barn, you instantly feel the elegant, loving, sentimental vibe that Haley portrays for her brand. From the soft colors, to the vintage feel to her logo, and the pineapple to represent hospitality for their event venue, this brand is going down as one of our favorites. It's full of the heart that Haley and her family have for their business. The same heart that has gotten them through the toughest times, together.
Haley worked closely with Kelsey at Honey Side Up with our Home Sweet Honey Package. Kelsey provided her with a custom logo design, alternate logos, a collaborative mood board project, a final brand board, custom business card designs, a Facebook cover photo, and additional marketing materials for Vintage Oaks Banquet Barn. We tied everything together to provide Haley a beautiful website by including the colors in her brand, fonts in her brand board, and unique brand elements to make sure her website stood out with her brand.
