The absolute best!
As wedding photographers ourselves, finding a venue that fit our personalities and vision was really important to us. When we came across The Brix online, we knew we had found something really cool. When we saw the venue for the first time, it was still being finished and, even then, it was beautiful and we could tell by hearing their vision for the space that it was going to be incredible. Our family and guests raved about how beautiful everything was and that they had never been to a wedding space like it. Aside from the gorgeous venue space, Rob and Tone are two of the coolest people we have met in the wedding industry. They care so much about their couples and the other vendors there for the day. Tone is seriously the sweetest and was such a big help and calming presence the day of. Rob was always so quick to respond to absolutely any question we had throughout the entire process, and was always very thorough in his responses. We couldn't have imagined a better team to help make our day happen. Words can't explain our gratitude towards Rob and Tone. Would highly, highly recommend The Brix to anyone looking for a unique and beautiful venue with staff who cares about the couples, families, and guests.

Love the Brix!
From the moment I saw The Brix I knew I had to have my wedding there. The space is beautiful with it's natural lighting and industrial charm. My guests were quite complimentary of it's beauty and uniqueness. The building itself provides lots of nice photo backdrops, and the river and surrounding areas are great as well!
Rob and Tone were SOOO helpful and accommodating, I felt like they were personally invested in making our wedding day perfect. They were always easy to communicate with and were extremely flexible with letting us stop by the venue for various reasons during the planning phase.
Have your wedding at the Brix! You will be glad you did.

I have had a small part in making this new wedding venue a dream come true! The owners of the venue are the kindest, smartest, and best all-around people I know. They will do whatever they can to make their clients happy. As for the venue, WOW! The venue space is incredible. Exposed brick, lots of big beautiful windows, and right on the river. This space is stunning and unique, and you have the freedom to make it exactly how you want it. I cannot recommend this venue enough. Take a look at this place before it books up!
