The BRIX on the Fox is a industrial / rustic-style wedding venue in Carpentersville, Illinois. This historic building, built in the late 1800s, was restored in 2018, and provides couples a blank canvas to plan, decorate, and bring their wedding dreams to life. The BRIX provides something for everyone: an open floor plan that can be completely customized, a rustic, semi-industrial outer shell that can suit any wedding theme, and all in one venue packages that make your budget planning so much simpler. When you choose The BRIX, you get to put your style and visions right into the venue. Your Life. Your Style!

Facilities and Capacity

The BRIX on the Fox represents two venues. TheTwo-Sixty, provides ample room for up to 320 guests and the Industria, for up to 200 guests. Both venues overlook the graceful Fox River. The Two-Sixty and The Industria are separate event venues. Each venue is divided into your main reception and bar area, prep kitchen, bridal suite, restrooms and coat check. Its 19th century restored architecture provides a beautiful backdrop for any style of wedding decor, and its completely open floor plan allows you to create your own layout, seating arrangements, and space that tailors to your wedding precisely. Some let the brick walls and custom reclaimed barnwood tables speak for themselves, while others choose more elaborate approaches. The decor and layout style is up to you.

    Book the Brix!

    I honestly cannot recommend the Brix enough. The venue is absolutely gorgeous which you can see upon your first visit, but the Brix stands out beyond the beauty. The entire team is communicative and provides excellent advice as you plan for the big day. As for day of coordination, I was blown away at the assistance they provided at every turn. They made sure we knew who to turn to with questions prior to the wedding started. They jumped in at every turn to make sure any hiccups were avoided and we could enjoy the entire wedding day. Seriously, book with the Brix, you won’t regret it!

    The best venue!!!

    The Brix on the Fox is an amazing venue. First and foremost it’s a family run business. Rob, Tone & Robbie will help ensure anything the venue can provide is taken care of. A real carte blanche, you’re able to dress up the venue as you see fit. Plenty of large wood tables will help you comfortably fit 200+ for dinner. They have a great set up to change over the room and a built in audio system for the DJ of your choice. The venue also has photo-booth and after your wedding you’ll get a drive folder with digital copies of every picture taken that night. We had an absolute blast! We highly recommend The Brix on the Fox!

    So beautiful! Get married there!

    We got married at the Brix on the Industria side and what a gorgeous venue this is! We were planning everything from out of state and in the middle of the pandemic so we were being extra careful with the vendor selection, but they were perfect! The venue is elevated and spacious with an intimate feeling and the team! We loved that they are so transparent about everything, excellent communication, and they give the freedom and time to make decisions about other vendors unlike other venues we had contacted. They also provide a list of highly recommended vendors which made remote planning so much easier - we ended up finding most of our vendors from it.

    Overall, we cannot recommend it enough. The Brix provides a beautiful blank canvas for you to do as much or as little personalization as you want for your special day, and it will turn out perfect. Everyone we talked to about getting married there only had good things to say about the place, and so do we.

    Also, a huge plus: the photobooth was such a hit! The guests loved it and we received the digital photos the day immediately after the wedding. The photos were of such high quality and it was a great way to appreciate the wedding day a bit longer.
