A Colorful Boho Wedding at BRIK in Fort Worth, Texas

Jessica Scharff (28 and a writer) and Gregory Moran (30 and a graphic designer) fell in love during a road trip to Marfa—an experience that ultimately inspired their  wedding at Ft. Worth’s BRIK venue. “It was a crazy-long drive into unknown territory and we had an absolute blast,” Jessica says. The groom put his graphic design skills to good use, crafting the entire invitation suite on his own, and Jessica hand-lettered wood signs before dyeing the napkins, table runners (which her mother sewed) and a custom ceremony backdrop. “A lot of handcrafted love went into our day,” Jessica says. The bride carried blooms that paid homage to her late grandmother, who was a florist. “I know she would’ve been proud,” Jessica says. As a pianist played the soundtrack from Star Wars, “I blinked back tears,” Gregory says. “I knew I was marrying a woman who understands me.” For the ceremony, Jessica selected a beaded ivory sheath that she paired with art-deco-inspired jewelry and a sentimental set of rings. "While I wanted to feel like a bride, I also wanted to feel like myself,” Jessica says “The day of our wedding, Greg’s father also presented me with his own mother’s wedding rings and asked if I would wear them in memory of her, which I happily did." At the reception, whimsical dreamcatchers doubled as keepsake escort cards. During the newlyweds’ grand exit, guests waved metallic streamers as Jessica and Gregory paused for an impromptu postreception dance-off. “The photos are absolutely hilarious,” Jessica says. “A little embarrassing, but a fantastic end to an incredible day.”
