The Brik Wedding Venue after the Dallas Freeze
As a wedding photographer & entrepreneur in Dallas, part of what I enjoy doing is reading books about business. It helps me to run my business better, grow as a photographer, and care for my wedding couples the best I can. In saying that, I have never heard about finding wedding clients at a kids resale shop. But hey, when you shop local and care about the people in your community, sometimes conversations turn into business. A win win for both parties in this situation.
Rachel’s mom was working at Kid to Kid in Allen the morning my family strolled in (or I guess I should say busted in) to buy some new clothes for our kids. As we shopped and talked to her at the checkout, she overheard that we were wedding photographers. She mentioned that her daughter was getting married at The Brik in Fort Worth in March and still needed a photographer. She asked if I had a card, so I handed it over and thought nothing of it. A few weeks later I got an email from Rachel to set up a meeting. Rachel, Matt, and I had a blast at our first meeting and knew it was a great fit. And just like that. Buying my daughter some used boots turned into us getting to be a part of this amazing couples weddings and lives!
Fast forward to their wedding weekend. It was the weekend after what everyone in Dallas called Snowmageddon. Grocery stores were out of food. Rolling power outages were happening. And snow was everywhere. Oh, and we were still in the middle of a global pandemic. But here we were on their wedding day, and Matt and Rachel were filled with joy and laughter. You wouldn’t have guessed all they went through to make this day happen. Even their dinner menu had to change the day of the wedding based on what was available in stores after the blistering cold temperatures.
Now let’s get to these wedding photos. They tell the true story…that these two love each other deeply and their families care so much about them! Here are some wedding photos of their wedding at The Brik in Fort Worth.
