Julia + Scott 9.16.17 | Sweet September Reception | Fort Worth, TX | BRIK Wedding

BRIK Venue, Fort Worth Wedding, Texas Wedding, September Wedding, Fall Wedding, Aggie Wedding, Purple Wedding

 

 

 

It’s not every weekend you come across a couple that is as sweet as Julia & Scott! They held their gorgeous wedding reception at BRIK last September and it was truly a celebration of love! Julia had a clear vision for her reception decor and executed it perfectly down to the last detail!

 

Guests signed individual rocks as they entered the reception and stopped to view the wedding photos from the families of the couple. As they found their seats, Julia and Scott had given every guest a bag of custom made M&M’s in shades of purple.

 

After taking some rooftop photos in front of the Fort Worth Skyline, Julia and Scott danced the night away with their closest friends and family! And it was definitely a celebration! Music and Lighting by LeForce Entertainment kept the guests on the dance floor all night long! Some of the props from the Photo Booth even made their way onto the dance floor and made for some truly incredible photos.

 

Katie Sanders Photography captured all the sweet and exciting moments from Julia and Scotts big day!

 

Congrats again to this amazing couple!

Vendor Shout Out | DJ Rod Baker | DFW Parties | BRIK Venue

brik venue, wedding dj, rod baker, dfw parties, wedding music

 

 

A DJ is so much more than a guy who presses start and stop on a few songs. A DJ can take your reception from a gathering of family and friends to a Party with everyone you love! We get a lot of clients at BRIK who want their reception to be more than just dinner and a few drinks. They want their guests to leave at the end of the night and talk about how amazing and fun the reception was! A good DJ is key!

 

We see a lot of different DJs at BRIK, but we have a few favorites! Rod Baker with DFW Parties is definitely on that list!

 

We asked Rod a few questions about what he loves most about being a Wedding DJ and to fill us in on his process of creating the PERFECT atmosphere for every Bride’s unique reception!

Tell us a little about how you got started in this industry.

 

I got started in college.  I saw a group of DJs who were doing cool things in the college bar scene.  They mixed music in ways I hadn’t heard before.  I happened to have a member of this group in one of my classes, and I asked to tag along.  The owner of the group and I hit it off, and he taught me how to mix on old school turntables and I started doing sorority parties.  From there, it just grew and grew.

For many years, it was a side job for me.  When the economic crash happened in 2008, I regrouped my life and decided to make it my full time venture.  Best decision I’ve ever made.

 

 

What is your favorite part about DJing a Wedding?

 

Weddings are my passion.  I love watching the evening unfold.  Telling the story, and figuring out the guests and what they like.  By combining the lists that I compile with my clients, and figuring out what will work at what time to maximize the party…and then to see if work, there’s no better feeling.

 

 

What is your favorite part about DJing at BRIK?

 

It’s funny, because I just had this conversation with a client.  I LOVE Brik. It’s gorgeous.  It’s hip.  It’s everything that people fall in love with when they see it on a tour or visit for the first time. But that’s not why I love it.

I love because of the people. There are many pretty places to get married, but not everyone has an amazing staff that really wants this to work on a profound level for their guests.  The Brik staff possesses that.  It makes me want to perform there as often as I possibly can.

 

 

brik venue, wedding, DJ, music, reception, DFW DJ

 

 

Do you have a favorite memory of a BRIK couple’s wedding?

 

One of my favorites is how many times I was told the dad wasn’t a super fun guy.  And he tore it up on the dance floor.  He got caught up in the euphoria of the night.  I don’t think anybody had ever seen him dance before.  The enthusiasm that spilled over into the other guests because of it happening was crazy contagious. It was pretty awesome.

 

 

What is one thing you want couples to know about Wedding DJs?

 

That this is not a commodity based purchase.  I think some couple go into this with a baseline opinion that “all DJs are the same”, so they look for the lowest price.  This makes perfect sense, this is not something people book very often in their lives. I think educating yourself is crucial.  And doing research and asking questions of your DJ is so important.  It HAS to be a solid personality fit going into this.  If it’s “off”, the money you saved by going with the lowest bid will have your guests leaving early.  Just be thorough!

 

 

What advice do you have for couples when it comes to choosing a DJ for their wedding?

 

Find the right personality fit!  I know that I’m not the right DJ for every couple that I talk with.  And if I’m not, I will make a recommendation on who I think would better serve them.  This isn’t a “slight”, this is just a fundamental bit of self awareness.

When the personalities click, your guests notice the day of the event.  There’s a synergy that’s hard for me to describe, but it really works.  And they really do pick up on that.

 

brik venue, wedding, DJ, music, reception, DFW DJ

 

 

What do you say to couples who are trying to decide between a DJ and a band?

I say get who fits best with you.  With a band, check their break schedule.  What will happen on the breaks?

I would also make sure to get references from their wedding experience.  Much like the awesome club DJ, not all of them can handle a microphone for the traditions (planners tell me about this struggle often).

Again, I know some that are spectacular in this arena.  And the energy of a band is off the charts.  Really it comes down to budget and personality fit.  The right bands that excel at weddings are not inexpensive, and it’s because they provide a truly unique experience.

That being said, I’ve been told the flexibility of what I offer as a DJ/MC helps move the party along with a lot of fun.  Again, and I know I’ve said this a few times, that personality fit will spill over into the guest experience.

 

 

Every couple is different when it comes to the reception style, describe your process on how you create the perfect aesthetic for each couple.

 

Every couple really is different, and I think that’s why I still passionately love it after performing over 1000 events.  It’s all still brand new!

I would describe my process in two stages.  In the preparation phase, I ask lots of questions and try to figure out what you’re hoping to experience the day of the event.  Digging deep at this phase can reveal what will make a couple super happy, and I act within those ideas.

The day of, my job is to entertain and inform.  That means different things for different clients.  I’m not a fist pump kind of guy.  I’m a Master of Ceremonies that happens to have DJ club experience in his background.  So I won’t get on the mic to hear myself talk.  I inform.  I move guests where they need to be and let them know what they need to know.  I’ve been professionally trained to do in a non-cheesy and meaningful kind of way.

In terms of the techy nerdy side of it, the gear side, I use top notch gear.  I combine Bose, QSC and Sennheiser equipment that allow me to spread the sound evenly throughout the venue.  This means there’s no hotspots of sound.  It’s an awesome experience for everyone.

I also offer various lighting options.  That’s an a la carte type of conversation, and needs to be tailored to the individual client needs.  I’m well versed with Brik and what looks good!

 

brik venue, wedding, DJ, music, reception, DFW DJ

 

 

What would you say sets you apart from other DJs?

 

I used to ask myself this question early in my career.  I figured it out after doing a celebrity wedding a while back.  The dad, who was a movie producer, said I have what they call in Hollywood…”the calm”.  He said it was a trait as a producer he always looked for.  When there is high stress and things are moving fast (like, you know, a wedding!), there are certain people that thrive in that environment.  He said those type of people have “the calm”, and apparently it’s pretty rare.  I love what I do, and many of my favorite receptions involved solved challenges that resulted in great experiences.  We’re dealing with over 100 people all doing random things, so we have to figure out how to make that work!  I actually kind of enjoy that.  Crazy, I know.

The other thing is something I mentioned earlier.  It’s having BOTH the MC experience and the DJ experience.  There are good MCs, and there are good DJs.  I’ve noticed there’s not a lot that can do both.  The great DJ you hear in the club 9/10 times is going to be awful when it’s time to introduce a wedding party, and some MCs aren’t up on mixing skills or the people reading skills that are so crucial in this business.  I know the ones that are, and they’re my favorite colleagues.  I like to believe I’m strong in both those disciplines!  I work at it and practice, even after 1000+ events.

 

brik venue, wedding, DJ, music, reception, DFW DJ

 

What is something a couple can add to their reception to really make it a party and get their guests on the dance floor?

 

This is a loaded question ha!

It’s the sum of many, many small things that make for a good party.  But the number one thing I can say is to hang out where you want your guests.  If you want them to be on the dance floor, spend a majority of your time on or near the dance floor.  Even if you’re just chatting, do it there.  People follow around the couple, it’s just what they do.  If you’re spending a lot of time not where you want them, it only makes sense they won’t be there either!

Beyond that, that’s a chat for the planning process.  Understanding your guests is key to creating the right stimulus for an amazing dance floor!

 

 

 

 

Thank you, Rod! We can’t wait to see you at BRIK again soon!

Hope + Madi 7.22.17 | Summer Sweethearts Wedding | Fort Worth, TX | BRIK Weddings

BRIK Venue, Summer Wedding, July Wedding, Purple Wedding, Same Sex Wedding

 

 

Ultra-Violet, Ultra-Romantic Summer Wedding

 

Hope and Madi tied the knot at BRIK last Summer in a beautiful light filled ceremony with tons of greenery and touches of bright purple that matched the dresses and ties worn by the wedding party!  Christy Matthews designed a gorgeous ceremony and reception that celebrated the love that these two share for each other.

 

 

“Hope and Madison knew exactly what they wanted in a wedding: a time and place to express their love for each other and to be surrounded by the people they loved. The wanted the day to be beautiful, but relaxed, and for everyone to have a great time. We created a day-of timeline to leave plenty of time for photos with the brides, and their large wedding party – a VIP group of besties. We incorporated pops of purple into lush greenery, and skipped an official cocktail hour so that the guests (almost 300) wouldn’t be rushed through dinner (a Tex Mex feast!) and there would be plenty of time for a raucous dance party – complete with Steel City Pops – to finish out the day. Shoes were kicked off, the margarita machine swirled away, and Hope and Madison playfully posed with practically every guest in front of their custom step-and-repeat.  The dance floor was packed all night and the sparkler exit served as a true farewell, capping off the night with smiles and hugs. Trish was the PERFECT photographer for Hope and Madison because her positive energy met theirs. Her gorgeous photos captured the joy and love between the brides, and the awesome support they have from their friends and families.”

-Christy Matthews, Christy Matthews Events

 

 

Trish of Beatbox Portraits captured all of the gorgeous details of Hope and Madi’s big beautiful summer wedding! And we definitely agree with Christy that she was the PERFECT photographer for this fun loving couple!

Sparkler Alternatives | Send-Off Ideas | Inspired by BRIK

brik venue, spring wedding, April Wedding, Military wedding, glow stick, send-off

 

 

The Send-off is the last big show of the night at any Wedding. It’s where you say goodbye to all of your friends and family and officially begin your new life as a Married Couple! In the last few years, Sparklers have become the go-to send-off prop for almost every wedding. They’re fun for your guests and look beautiful in photos, but more and more cities are cracking down on sparkler usage due to the fire hazards they bring with them.

 

So what’s your alternative? We have had a lot of great send-off props at BRIK that are fun, unique and look fantastic in photos! Our personal favorites are the rose petals, biodegradable snow, and smoke bombs!

 

We’ve complied a list of some great sparkler alternatives for your send-offs below! Check out the photos and tell us your favorites!

Rachel + Will 8.12.17 | Beautiful August Wedding | BRIK Wedding

BRIK Venue, August Wedding, Fort Worth, Texas, Romantic, Delicate

 

Love was truly in the air on this warm and sunny August Saturday. Delicate flowers, greenery, hues of cream and grey, and the industrial backdrop of BRIK were combined perfectly to accomplish Rachel & Will’s vision of a beautiful and romantic ceremony and reception. Rachel and Will exchanged their vows beneath a jaw-dropping floral arch created by Ambra and her team at Query Events. Guests mingled during the outdoor cocktail hour in our courtyard before heading inside to a breathtakingly beautiful reception. After the first dance, guests enjoyed a delicious meal by Reata before dancing the night away under a canopy of lights and greenery to DJ Rod Baker.

 

 

Rachel & Will didn’t let the late night rain stop them from concluding the evening with a romantic send-off in the courtyard. A little rain never hurt anyone and hello?! Kissing your new husband in the rain! Is there anything better?

 

 

Stephanie Brazzle captured all of the beautiful details of Rachel and Will’s big day!

 

 

Congrats Mr. & Mrs. Wheeler!

Ceremony Lighting | North Texas | BRIK Question of the Month

BRIK Venue, Fort Worth, Texas, June Wedding, Summer Wedding, Ceremony, Carnival Themed

 

Welcome to our first ever BRIK Question of the Month post! Every month we will be answering a common question that all of our couples want to know about BRIK or their Wedding! Let’s get this party going!

 

“What is the lighting like during a ceremony?” It’s a question we get asked by all of our clients. And an important one! You want your ceremony to light and beautiful, but you don’t want it so bright that you are backlit and don’t show up in your own wedding photos!

 

BRIK Venue, Ceremony Lighting, Fort Worth, Texas, WeddingMegan DeWolfe Photography

 

No matter the time of year, BRIK always has great natural light flooding thru our space (it’s one of our favorite things about the venue)! Depending on the month and time of day your ceremony is taking place, the light can change dramatically. It also depends a lot on your photographer! If you find a great photographer, they will adjust their settings to get the perfect light for your ceremony photos. We have been lucky enough to have some incredible photographers at BRIK (see below).

 

Lighting can be tricky, but thankfully BRIK and your Photographer will make sure you have the perfect amount of light for your ceremony.

 

 

We’ve compiled some photos of real BRIK Ceremonies that have taken place during different times of the year.

Liz + Michael 1.27.18 | Intimate January Reception | BRIK Weddings

BRIK Venue, Weddings, Fort Worth, Texas, Vietnamese Wedding, Intimate Wedding, Romantic

 

There was never a doubt in her mind – Liz had a vision for her wedding day and she executed it flawlessly! With muted tones for the wedding party, contrasting rich floral, late night food truck and, of course, TCU SuperFrog, how could this wedding be anything less than spectacular?!

 

Liz and Micheal’s reception design truly embraced the character of BRIK by highlighting venue features and marring them with the couple’s own flair. No detail was overlooked and it is obvious that great care taken to ensure this day was perfect.

 

Bringing a bit of their heritage with them, Liz and Michael served Fresh, Vietnamese Cuisine to all of their guests family style on a combination of our Wooden Banquet and Round Tables (truly gorgeous!). And speaking of gorgeous.. Liz’s beautiful wedding gown was custom made in Vietnam! Be sure to look at all the beautiful details in the photos below! After the traditional cake cutting and champagne toasts, guests danced the night away and were treated to some late night beignets courtesy of The Beignet Bus!

 

Liz and Michael created a one-of-a-kind reception for their guests! We wish this couple all the best in the world in their new life together!

Spring is just around that corner! And as the weather warms and the flowers begin to bloom, we are getting more and more excited for our March weddings! We are anxious to share the soft, elegant wedding designs and to see how out BRIK Brides might incorporate the Pantone Color of the Year. As we gear up for March, we want to take to look back and celebrate the BRIK Couples who made if official a year ago!

 

Congrats to all our happy couples celebrating this first year of marriage! We hope it has been a good one and we wish you many more to come! We are honored that you chose BRIK for your big day backdrop. Thank you so much for sharing your special day with us. Check out these timeless, classic weddings and get inspired for Spring 2018!

 

Cheers! To all our March brides of the past and the ones who are soon to come!
