    My husband and I recently had our wedding reception at the BRIT. It was one of the best decisions we made in the wedding planning process. The staff, both Katherine and Courtney, were amazingly kind, thorough, and patient as I asked approximately ten million questions.

    One of the things I appreciated most was how helpful they were. About a month before the wedding, the house I was supposed to stay at, and where we would have taken pictures in the morning if it rained, fell through. I asked the BRIT if we could use the atrium as a rain plan and they were very accommodating, which was great, because it rained. We had a really nice, dry, space to take pictures and we ended up getting a really nice first look. Courtney was also very helpful when our caterer needed twice as many tables as they said they would the week before.

    We had 160 people at our wedding. It was an afternoon wedding and didn't have a formal meal service so we did not have tables for everyone, but we probably could have made it work if we had needed to. Courtney was really helpful as we worked on the floor plan and I was very happy with how everything turned out. The space was also beautiful, and the natural light was great. We were able to see the outside without having to experience the outside, which was fortunate given the weather.

    All around it was a great experience and it was an extra bonus to my husband and I that our wedding could contribute science and education in such a cool way.

    Working with Katherine Campbell and the staff at the BRIT was a pure joy. The BRIT is very accommodating and professional. I would recommend the BRIT to anyone looking for a special and unique venue.

    This is an overlooked gem that definitely needs a look! Modern and unique interior mixed with natural Texan prairie right outside of floor to ceiling windows makes for a seamlessly chic venue. Outdoor and indoor options for smaller weddings with a price tag that won't shock as much as many other venues in the DFW area. Give Katherine a call, and check it out, cause the BRIT team will not let you down!
