Gardens on Q is an outdoor special event venue, hosting weddings, bridal showers, business events, photo sessions and more. Located a bit north of Holdrege and just southwest of Kearney, Gardens on Q is perfectly situated to serve the Tri-Cities and the entire central Nebraska area. The venue itself is comprised of winding paths through picturesque flower gardens, a Victorian-style home and tranquil views of the surrounding countryside.
When we first met Polly, she was in the initial phases of launching Gardens on Q as an event venue. She expressed her vision for a rustic, yet elegant website design that reflected the natural, outdoorsy aesthetic of Gardens on Q.
Polly was a terrific client and was enthusiastic about every step of our creative process. Working from her initial inspirations, we delivered a design that reflected her garden setting and utilized nature-inspired shades of gray and white, with pops of bright green. We kept the overall aesthetic of the site modern, but pulled in French country influences to create a “country, yet upscale” mood. We also created a custom logo, which incorporates a vine and floral motif and perfectly complements both the venue and the site’s overall look.
Polly needed a calendar system that allowed her clients to easily see which dates were available and which had been blocked out. The calendar also needed to show dates far into the future to allow for wedding planning. Our goal was to make the calendar simple to manage, in case Polly needed to reschedule or book an event over the phone. Additionally, we built a contact form that makes client enquiries a breeze. Polly provided us with gorgeous photos of the venue, which we incorporated into the design throughout the site. We also built a custom photo gallery to further showcase the images.
Control Yours created a custom tutorial, demonstrating how to update page content, manage the the photo gallery and how to use the calendar function.
