Haylie + Mark 8.4.17 | Romantic August Wedding in Fort Worth, TX | BRIK Weddings

Brik Venue, Fort Worth, Summer Wedding, August Wedding, Romantic

 

Feeling a lot of love today looking through these photos from Haylie & Mark’s August Wedding! As with most of our #BRIKBrides, we had SO much fun working with Haylie on her big day! From the first day she toured, we had an instant connection with her and couldn’t wait to help her create a gorgeous wedding!

With soft pinks and greys, Haylie and Mark’s decor was simple but beautiful! The Bride walked down the aisle to an asymmetrical floral arch that was later moved to hang over their Head Table (such a great idea!). The chandeliers were filled with greenery and the guest tables were decorated with Eucalyptus, Brass Candlesticks, Pink Napkins, and Gold Tableware. Soft, delicate, and romantic! What more could you want?

 

Nicholas Leitzinger captured some of the most beautiful Bride and Groom Portraits we have ever seen! From the Ivy Wall in the Courtyard to the Rooftop at Sunset, this couple’s portraits were to die for! Definitely #CouplesGoals!

 

DJ Blake Ward was there to keep the party going as everyone danced the night away! The couple ended their reception with a romantic Sparkler Send-Off in the courtyard!

 

Congratulations Haylie and Mark!

Tell us a little about Beatbox Portraits – 

We are full time wedding photographers + Husband & Wife + Film & Digital+ team located in Dallas/ Fort Worth. 

We are passionate stylers with big dreams. Living a positive life helping and serving others is what makes our lives truly a joy to live. Nothing is more addicting than laughter, smiles and genuine memories.

We are a mixture of photojournalism and fine art portraiture. We approach wedding days like we are telling a story- A story that is unique and carefully curated to show our couples love. We use our skill, experience, eye for design, and our styling kit to photograph all their wedding day details. We love mixing traditional portraiture and candid moments through out the whole day.  We give our couples gentle direction throughout their big day to ensure they will have the best images.

You’re now a Husband and Wife Photography Team! How does it feel getting to work alongside your hubby every day?

 

Having my husband join the team full time has been hands down the best business decision!! We are guaranteed to be able to provide the best variety and consistency for our couples. Although we do inspire one another in different ways, we are still two unique individuals who bring our own strengths and ideas to the table. It’s one of the many reasons why we love working together- so our couples receive the perfect blend of fun, meaningful, detailed, and creative images they’ll cherish for years to come. AND Bonus! How cool is it that our couples will now always have two shooters on all of their engagements and bridal sessions- Double the images Double the fun!!

 

What is your favorite part about photographing a wedding?

Our favorite part of wedding day is the alone time with our couples. First looks make us melt every time. This time is what its all about!! Two people committing to living their lives together as best friends and soulmates. We cherish this time because we know these will be the memories that will decorate the walls of their new home together.  

 

What is your favorite part about shooting at BRIK?

 

BRIK is one of our favorite venues in the DFW for many reasons.. from the glowing natural light, to the spacious two story floor plan. As a photographer, light is key to stunning photos!! What we love about BRIK is that no matter the time of the day there is always clean, natural light on one side or the other of the building! We have so many options for backgrounds, which means we can provide the best variety to our couples. We love the graffiti wall, the ivy wall, the industrial metal doors and the stairs!! Endless variety  :”)

 

What advice would you give to a bride when it comes to choosing a photographer for their big day?

 

You fell in love with a photographers portfolio…check

You fell in love with their personality….check

Now here is the best advice: Go to facebook or instagram and reach out to their past couples. 

Choose them randomly and send them a private message.

 “Hello, I am considering hiring XYZ for my wedding day. How was your experience? 

Thank you, XYZ”

This is going to give you honest and true insight on how your wedding experience will be. Be sure to ask one to three different couples for their testimonial!

Lastly, What are 5 Tips you would give couples to get the BEST Wedding Day Photos?

 

1. When choosing your Ceremony time, here are some questions to ask yourself:

– Do you want daylight photos of you and your wedding party?

– Do you want to have a First Look?

If you are doing a First Look, you can your ceremony time about 90 minutes before sunset. If you are not doing a First Looks, you might want to schedule your ceremony about 2 hours before ceremony time. Ask your photographer for information on First Looks :”)

 

2. Let’s talk FLORALS!!

Investing in your bridal bouquet is key!! For both your bridal session and on your wedding day! Go big and splurge on the blooms you want. You only get married once, treat yourself! We can make magic happen with a breathtaking bouquet!

 

3. Want more pictures? Be organized!

BRIDES- Put all of these items in one box right by your dress:

– Jewelry

– All three rings

– Any heirloom items

– Perfume Bottle

– Vow Book

– Ring Box

– Veil, hair combs, etc.

– Two sets of your wedding invitation suite, including envelopes, menus, any paper goods

 

GROOMS:

– Tie

– Shoes

– Cufflinks

– Any Special Items

By having all these items in one place you will instantly get 30% ore detail photos because no one has to hunt them down!

4. Hire a Wedding Planner!!

If you take any advice away from these tips, this is the #1!!

You should be able to sit, relax and feel amazing knowing everything is handled. The last thing you want to be doing is running around setting up table decor, showing your cake vendor where to setup, etc. They keep the show running smooth and take all the stress out of your timelines. They are priceless!

 

5. Family Formal Time:

This is the one time of the wedding day where timeline delays can happen. Make a list with everyones name and the order in which you would like to photograph everyone. Take it one step further and email everyone on the list- the list! IF your family members know that they are requested to be in photos and the order, they will not run off to the cocktail hour and we will not have to chase them down and lose precious time.

These are just a few great tips to make sure your day is a blissful and fun celebration of your marriage! We warmly welcome all questions from our couples and we are thrilled to be a resource for them on their wedding days. After all, they have never been married and we eat, sleep, and breath wedding days every day!

 

 

 

Thank you, Trish & Andy! We can’t wait to work with you again soon!

Jessica + Greg 11.3.17 | Marfa Inspired Wedding in Fort Worth TX | BRIK Weddings

Brik Venue, Fort Worth, Texas, Wedding, Wedding Venue, Fall Wedding, Boho

Rainy days like today makes us think back on some of the beautiful warm weather weddings we’ve had at BRIK this past year! This wedding in particular comes to mind with its bright colors and Marfa-inspired decor! I think we could all use some colorful inspiration on this Wedding Wednesday!

 

Jessica and Greg were married at BRIK in November of 2017 and we absolutely LOVED this super fun couple! From the dream-catcher table numbers down to the Grooms tie, the Bride and Groom incorporated their unique style into every part of their wedding!

 

 

Guests made their way upstairs to an altar filled with lush greenery, plants, and flowers in white pots and baskets with a rich blue linen backdrop. They added our White Candelabras on either side for that special hint of candlelight.

 

After the cocktail hour in the courtyard with the balcony Grand Entrance (talk about Grand!), Jessica and Greg invited their friends and family to join them inside for their First Dance! Their reception decor was filled with bright blues and pinks, dream catchers, flowers, and cacti that created the PERFECT Marfa Inspired atmosphere!

 

But what truly made this wedding so unique and fun wasn’t the decor.. it was the incredible couple it celebrated! They took every spare moment to have fun and be themselves on their wedding day. You can tell by looking at the photos that this couple knows how to have a good time! They brought in His and Her Horse Masks for their Wedding Party Photos and Reception Dance Party! And speaking of dance party.. the Bride and Groom not only walked through gold and white ribbon wands for their send-off.. they danced their way through it!

 

Trish Dove with Beatbox Portraits captured all the beautiful, fun, exciting, and unique details from their special day!

 

Congrats Mr. & Mrs. Moran!

Margo + Dylan 5.19.17 | Industrial Wedding In Fort Worth TX | BRIK Wedding

Happy Wedding Wednesday! We are soooo excited to share our first Wedding Wednesday post on the brand new blog! Every week we will post a real BRIK Wedding to the blog to share with all of you!

 

#WeddingWednesdayIsBack!

 

Margo and Dylan were married in May 2017 and had one of the most industrial-chic weddings we’ve ever had! This Dallas Based Couple were a dream to work with! Our first meeting with Margo was actually a FaceTime tour! It wasn’t long after, that Margo & Dylan began planning their dream wedding! Margo had a clear vision of what she wanted for her big day and that was “Industrial”… which made BRIK the perfect setting!

 

 

To bring her Industrial Wedding Vision to life, Margo enlisted the help from some top-tier vendors (full list below), including Taylor Rice from Embrace the Day Events and Taylor Bradford of Sugar Creek Vintage Rentals. Together, Taylor and Taylor designed an incredible Ceremony and Reception for Margo and Dylan. Bradford incorporated brass candlesticks and concrete into her design for Margo. Have you ever thought of using concrete cinderblocks on a Head Table? Neither did we! She also handmade some concrete and glass vases for some single stem flowers! The heavy industrial decor of the reception perfectly complimented the intimate ceremony upstairs. Their ceremony was beautiful and romantic with some delicate draping, hanging greenery, and candles lining the altar in a half ring. If you’re searching for the perfect inspiration for your industrial-chic wedding, look no further!

 

Check out all the photos below for all the details on this gorgeous BRIK Wedding! And a big Thank you Matt Allen for capturing Margo and Dylan’s Special Day!

 

Congrats to Mr. and Mrs. Herman!
