Our website is a resource for gay and lesbian couples that are interested in getting married in Iowa. We want our visitors to understand that Iowa is a diverse and welcoming state, and most importantly a great wedding destination.
Visitors to our site can find a variety of information on gay friendly vendors, venues and legal information on legal issues surrounding gay marriage in Iowa.
We are marketing to gay and lesbian couples in and around Iowa. Our immediate market is Iowa couples, however, in the years to come projections show that the largest market of customers will come from the surrounding states that do not currently legally support gay/lesbian marriage.
We'd like to move away from the common or basic "rainbow" themes into something a little more progressive.
Designs should center on the ideas of equality and fairness, and if possible have some relation to wedding imagery. (Potentially rings, Wedding Bells, Doves, etc.)
The imagery should not be too "religious" in nature, as many churches are not open to non-traditional weddings.
Due to the long URL, the logo will probably need to have a horizontal . If a logical break in the text works with the logo concept, then wrapping of the text may be appropriate.
Would like an icon/graphic representation that could be to the left of the text treatment, or placed above the text treatment if needed.
