About

Up to 75 guests

Camp Aramoni is a boutique campground and wedding venue awaiting your discovery just 90 minutes southwest of Chicago near the picturesque Starved Rock State Park. This historical site was once home to a brickyard that operated from 1870 to 1981. Bricks & Stones was originally used as a blacksmith shop at the brickyard, and it has since been renovated to include modern amenities while also preserving its original architecture. The boutique campground is located nearby and includes 11 safari-style tents with lavish beds, air conditioning, en-suite restrooms, hardwood floors and personal outdoor decks.

Bricks & Stones is the only wedding venue in the Midwest located on a former brickyard. Upon entering the building, guests are greeted by its rustic industrial charm and grand fireplace. The indoor space includes seating for up to 75 guests in addition to a full-service bar, caterer's kitchen, five private restrooms, WiFi and audiovisual equipment. The Bowers Suite is a private getting-ready space that includes garment racks, comfortable vintage seating, fogged windows for privacy and an en-suite restroom with a shower.

Bricks & Stones then effortlessly transitions into a large outdoor lawn with a covered pavilion. The space also includes a large deck overlooking the Vermilion River, two ponds and native Illinois wildflowers. The open lawn features three historical brick kilns and a fountain in addition to an outdoor kitchen equipped with a wood fired oven. An outdoor ceremony set up is included in the rental fee and on-site parking is available. With the addition of an outdoor tent rental, we can also seat up to 200 guests outside.

Camp Aramoni is also the first and only boutique campground in Illinois. Located along the Vermilion River, the campground offers lavish accommodations in a secluded natural landscape. The site includes 11 luxury tents with accommodations for up to 54 of your closest friends and family. Nightly rates include breakfast, dinner and nightly gourmet s'mores. In addition to chef curated meals and breathtaking views, the campground is enveloped in miles of private hiking trails waiting to be explored. You and your guests may choose to relax in your tent or enjoy on-site activities like yoga classes, guided hikes, picnics in the woods and nightly communal bonfires.

The tents combine exciting camping experiences with the best of hotel amenities. Designed and styled exclusively for Camp Aramoni in South Africa, each tent is equipped with electricity, heating, cooling and plumbing. Further amenities include lavish beds, an en-suite restroom, mini fridge, complimentary toiletries, casual indoor seating, your own personal bonfire pit and firewood bundles. Camp Aramoni also offers a honeymoon suite for you and your partner to stay in at a discounted rate.

If you're ready to transform your wedding day into a weekend-long celebration, a full weekend buyout of the entire campground and event space is also available.

    June 11, 2022- The Best Day!

    Our wedding on June 11th, 2022 was a day that I’ll never top! It was honestly better than I could have ever dreamed! Andrea was the most wonderful coordinator- especially with getting my wedding kind of thrown in her lap two months out! She was informative, organized, resourceful, very kind, and SUCH AN AMAZING person to have on my wedding team! The venue: The Camp Aramoni team set up everything for me day of, and kept my friends and family who were getting ready with me comfortable and happy-which means a lot to me! We had food delivered to the bowers suite for the ladies and to the barn for the gentlemen- which was delicious! Highly recommend the breakfast burritos- they’re the size of my face! The staff helped everything behind the scenes happen without me noticing so that I didn’t have to be concerned with the “extra stuff” (like getting my arch inside to put behind my sweetheart table after the ceremony and SO MUCH MORE). I could not recommend this venue and their staff more! The campground: We stayed Friday, Saturday, and Sunday night. Night one was our rehearsal, we finished with that, had dinner in the barn, and stayed in the flora and fauna tent. It was LUXURIOUS! Heat and air, a full bathroom, and falling asleep to the sound of the river was dreamy! Day two was WEDDING DAY!!! Day three we slept in! Muuuch needed! After that we went to brunch- the food was to die for (again)! Kyle enjoyed a yummy Bloody Mary, they had some delicious goodies! After that we went back to the tent and opened our cards and relaxed! Then we had a picnic scheduled- they had a golf cart take us to a secluded spot next to the river that was set up SO nicely and again such good food and snacks! Then we went for a hike on the trails before cleaning up and going to dinner. Kyle and I stayed up at the barn playing cards and connect four on the deck while drinking some cocktails made in their airstream bar for hours! That next morning we packed up, had breakfast, and checked out!

    Absolutely amazing!

    Camp Aramomi really made our wedding beautiful. Stephanie, Jennie, Chef Cleetus and their team were very friendly and accommodating. They helped decorate the venue and it turned out beautifully. The food and drinks were delicious. We also stayed at the honeymoon tent, Fora and Fauna. The campground is equally amazing. The tent was gorgeous and so cozy. Again the staff and owner were friendly and accommodating. We were seved breakfast at our tent. We couldn't have asked for a better experience or a more perfect wedding day!

    Bricks & Stones at Camp Aramoni's reply:

    Thank you Corinne for such wonderful words! I, (Jennie) as well as the entire team loved having you here for your special day! We hope to see you here many years to come to continue to celebrate!

    Awesome, truly a great experience in every way!

    I can’t say enough about Stephanie and the staff at Bricks and Stones at Camp Aramoni. They are beyond amazing!!! They worked day and night to make everything perfect. My daughter’s wedding was the best day of my life and Camp Aramoni was the perfect venue. Our guests loved the unique setting. We loved the facility and the glamping! I have two more daughters and hope to do it all again.

    Bricks & Stones at Camp Aramoni's reply:

    Thank you so much Mike for your kind words! It was a pleasure getting to know and work with everyone during the planning process of Taylor + Rico's wedding! We wish everyone the best!
