Website Case Study of TheLegacyCastle.com

Background

Situated in Pompton Plains, New Jersey, The Legacy Castle stands as an emblem of luxury and elegance in the event venue industry. With its breathtaking architecture and lavish amenities, it has established itself as a premier destination for weddings, corporate gatherings, and other special occasions. However, to maintain its competitive edge and attract a broader audience, The Legacy Castle recognized the need to elevate its online presence through a revamped website. They sought the expertise of a professional web design company to achieve this goal.

Project Kickoff

As a leading web design company, we initiated the project by consulting with The Legacy Castle to understand their desired features and style for the new website. Together, we identified areas for improvement based on the shortcomings of their current site, emphasizing ease of editing for the client. The Legacy Castle wanted the website to reflect the elegant design elements found within the castle, with a specified color scheme of black, white, and gold tones, complemented by marble stone accents.


The primary focus was on photography to help prospective clients visualize their events at the venue. We planned multiple galleries to showcase each service and room within the castle. Given the importance of loading time for both user experience and Google rankings, we prioritized optimization in this area. Additionally, we designed clear calls to action for consultations and walk-throughs to enhance user convenience.

Design Phase

Elegant Visual Design

As a web design company, we crafted the website's design to mirror the refined aesthetics of The Legacy Castle. A sleek layout, complemented by a color palette of black, white, beige, and gold, evoked a sense of luxury synonymous with the venue's ambiance. We chose a classic serif font paired with an elegant, handwritten script font to resonate with their target audience.

Homepage Video Banner

The video banner aimed to evoke an emotional response from visitors by highlighting the beauty of The Legacy Castle through a combination of sweeping aerial shots, intimate close-ups, and cinematic transitions.

Compelling Content

Engaging copywriting was crafted by the client to highlight the unique features and amenities offered by The Legacy Castle. Captivating descriptions, testimonials, and virtual tours were included to evoke emotion and inspire visitors to envision their events at the venue.

"The team at Pix-l Graphics made our website design project a breeze! We went from a heavily coded, not user friendly, not mobile friendly, ugly and outdated site to one that is so easy to update, beautiful to look at, and responsive across all devices. We didn’t really have a clear idea of what we were looking for at the start, and this incredible talented team helped us fill in the blanks and bring our vision to life. Thank you thank you thank you again!"
