Romantic Wedding Inspiration in an Old Textile Mill

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Charla Storey

First things first: today’s shoot has some beautiful photography by Charla Storey, no doubt about that. Secondly, we completely understand why Grit + Gold wanted to get first dibs on having an inspiration shoot in The BRIK on the verge of their grand opening. This place has such a lovely blend of industrial, modern, and vintage, and those wide open spaces are perfect for crafting whatever tablescape styles to your heart’s content. Which is exactly what they did! With superb floral work from Oh Deery, they transformed this textile mill-turned-epic wedding venue into a romantic spot, complete with a vintage-style wedding dress, gauzy fabrics on anything that would stay put, and yummy eats.

From the wedding planner, Grit + Gold: When this team hears about a new venue on the brink of opening, what do we do? We pull a fab team together and christen the place. The BRIK, an old textile mill with raw wood floors, shabby white brick walls, and huge windows lends the perfect formula to create the most romantic of settings. I wanted to style several food displays in the shoot to really give the images living and breathing qualities rather than just perfectly staged displays. I wanted it to feel as though each image was interactive with the audience. Something that the person looking at it would relate to. Possibly the reminiscence of a grandmother or watching mom prepare a table at home with a great spread of food. Then taking those emotions and infusing them into a bride’s most important day.

Romantic Elopement in Tehuacana

Wedding Design

This shoot is all about romance and industrial style meeting and creating a beautiful outcome. Jeff Brummett Visuals was the photographer in charge and he captured the most astonishing shots of this dramatic editorial. Using Grit + Gold‘s planning and design skills and the creative floral handiwork by Something Pretty Floral, this antiquated school turned into an edgy and exciting backdrop. It was decorated in deep reds, snaking vines, and fine touches of gold for a slight pop for the eyes. The flowers were beautifully moody in the darkest reds and pinks imaginable. To break up the dramatic color palettes for the florals, sweet blush pink blooms were incorporated in. If you’re looking for wedding inspiration with darker tones and a slight Victorian feel, this shoot is definitely it!

From the event designer, Grit + Gold: Our design lends towards a dramatic and romantic elopement somewhere in Texas. The backdrop is an old school built in late 1800’s which now brings many artists from all over who admire capturing its beautiful ornate architecture and patina’d walls. Our bride’s boudoir look was a simple lace silk slip and layered tulle skirt. She changed later for a Rachel Zoe lace dress in black. Simple details like trellising greenery and heavy candlelight give off the sense of romance.

Hunter Green and Berry Engagement Inspiration

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Ben Q Photography

It feels like spring is right around the corner, and it’s shoots like this one from Ben Q Photography and Grit + Gold that make us hope it gets here ASAP. In this styled engagement, the bride-to-be wears a hunter green patterned gown and flowers in her hair, with a simple braided ‘do we can’t wait to copy for ourselves.

From the event designer, Lottie of Grit + Gold: The shoot’s design and details all evolved from the Sachin & Babi Noir dress worn by our soon to be bride. Soft and romantic lace linens used for our tablesetting set a nice background so that our floral would really pop. We pulled in terracotta tones in our dishware and napkins which complement the Texas terrain so nicely. A simple noir setup for all those wine lovers who love to picnic. We kept the bouquet and chair details all natural with various greenery, again letting her dress be our floral and detail focus.

Earthy Chic Dallas Wedding

Rustic Weddings

Photos by:

This wedding, expertly designed by Grit + Gold and captured by Ryan Ray, is the perfect marriage of chic femininity and earthy goodness. The layers of texture are just heavenly. We could spend hours just staring at these amazing tablescape with a dainty antique china pattern from Rent My Dust Vintage!

From the event designer, Lottie of Grit + Gold: I am creating a new word for this wedding… earthchic. While Kristin loved textures like burlap, she still loved the frilly feel of ruffles. And while she adores moss, she still loves a clean and chic look. We really worked earthy elements into the wedding without going overkill and still keeping a classy appeal.
