    Old Brick was fantastic at every point. Not only is it a beautiful venue but the staff there were extremely helpful. Best thing about it was that we could pretty much bring in any vendor we wanted allowing us to build our day exactly the way we wanted it.

    Old Brick was the perfect venue for our wedding. We were really glad to be in downtown Iowa City, and loved the chance of having the place for the whole weekend. We had our rehearsal, rehearsal dinner, ceremony, and reception all in Old Brick, and enjoyed the flexibility of set-up and that we felt distinction between all the events without having to move to a new place. We were particularly amazed with the staff. Everything went very smoothly and everyone was really helpful whenever we had questions.
