Julie at Old Brick was amazing to work with for our wedding! We loved being able to reserve the venue for Friday and Saturday, so we could host the rehearsal and dinner there, as well as the ceremony and reception. Julie was exceptionally accommodating with our requests and answering all of our questions. Everything went smoothly and we are so happy with our experience!

We held our wedding reception here and it was a great experience. The place is DIY but that allows you to choose all the pieces for your day. We would highly recommend this great historic building for your day. Julie was wonderful to work with and answered all of our questions throughout our planning process.
