Weddings at The BRIX | TWA Photographic Artists | Chicago Wedding Photographers
Looking for a special venue with a rustic, industrial feel but still has a lot of light and open space? The BRIX just might be the perfect location for you and is one of our favorite venues to photograph at!
The BRIX on the Fox is a venue within a historic building that was built in the 1800s and recently restored in 2018. Located in Carpentersville, this venue provides a blank canvas to couples so they have the ability to plan, decorate, and bring their wedding dreams to life. The venue has all in one packages that make your budget planning much simpler too.
The BRIX encompasses two venues. The flagship Two-Sixty, which provides enough space for up to 320 guests and the newly introduced Industria, which holds up to 200 guests. Both spaces are separate venues overlooking the graceful Fox River. They are divided into your main reception and bar area, prep kitchen, bridal suite, restrooms, and coat check. The venue provides a beautiful backdrop for any style of wedding décor, and the completely open floor plan allows you to create your own layout!
Unique local history of The BRIX:
From making milk to making dreams come true!
The expansive building was constructed in the 1880s for the Illinois Condensing Company later renamed the Borden Condensed Milk Company. The event space of The BRIX was originally a living area for cows. The building was converted to other uses around 1920 and has had several owners since then. The exterior and interior fell into disrepair.
The Borden Condensed Milk Company building was constructed using historic “Haeger Yellow Brick” which adds to its significance. The building was purchased by OTTO Engineering in 2014. OTTO has had extensive experience returning dilapidated historic buildings to their historic condition. An extensive renovation to the 32,000 sq. ft. building was completed to the exterior to bring the façade and interior brick to its original appearance.
The BRIX on the Fox, Inc. began interior renovations in May 2018 with the first wedding held September 2018 in the flagship Two-Sixty. The Industria, a separate venue in the expansive building, was announced in July 2019 and hosted its first wedding on NYE 2019.
