Fort Worth will be welcoming a new unique wedding venue as of April 1st, 2016, appropriately called the Brik Venue. The atmosphere of this space could be described as “raw vintage.” It gave off the impression of being a sophisticated warehouse, which seems to be a trending pattern amongst recent wedding planners. The presence of exposed piping oddly enough perfectly complemented the elegance of the chandeliers hanging from the ceiling. The spaced out pillars were another notable feature, which turned out to be a nice way to apportion the area. Owner Lynsie Blau shows a true appreciation for the building, doing her best to preserve as much of the original architecture as possible. Not only is most of the building’s composition made up of its primary foundation, but Blau has also arranged for the bar area to be compromised of the wood gathered from the remnants of an old barn. There are also plans for the renovation of two box cars to be converted into a groom’s suite and a separate preparation room. The simplicity and openness of the venue appeared perfect for accessorizing, a characteristic that brides-to-be are always considering when browsing possible locations. Blau is actively aiming to provide that adaptability, saying she wants “to make the space versatile enough that the client can use any of the three spaces any way they want.” However, that doesn’t mean that the entire ambiance of the location was basic and neutral. Artist Jeremey Joel is designing a large mural to go on the back of the building meant to embrace the unique character of this venue, while also providing a splash of color for striking photographs. There is an outdoor balcony that faces downtown Fort Worth that can also be used as a spot for taking beautiful photos. Blau welcomes the use of all aspects of the facility, even renting it out to photographers for sessions or styled shoots. Now booking for summer weddings!
