Jennifer and Nick’s effortlessly elegant wedding featuring a merlot and navy palette showcases just how light and airy an event can be, no matter what venue you choose or what season you decide to wed in. Held at the rustic and industrial Brake & Clutch Warehouse just on the edge of Deep Ellum, this wedding scene utilizes a color scheme that works well both indoors and out. The mixing of wood and metal elements gives us all the modern rustic vibes, creating an effortless elegance. With this mood in the air, your guests are sure to feel warm and welcomed. We think that the bride’s simple hair draws more attention to her gorgeous warm-toned makeup look created by WZ Beauty Studio. Soft ivory and greenery-filled feminine florals on every tablescape breathe even more life into this moody wedding scene, and slices of natural wood underneath each centerpiece bring a masculine touch to balance it all out. This wedding truly has it all! Cheers to Jennifer and Nick!

From the bride: “We learned that the most important thing to spend our money on was the venue and photography. We will have those pictures for the rest of lives, and the venue does so much to make it all run smoothly. Laura and everyone at Brake & Clutch and Caitlyn at Onthetimes Photography made the whole process so much less stressful.”
