26 East Market St, Iowa City, IA
Old Brick is a historic wedding venue located in the heart of downtown Iowa City, IA. The second-oldest building in the city, this landmark was erected in 1856 and is one of few surviving structures from before the Civil War. Originally a Presbyterian Church, it has been fully restored and now serves as an event facility, art gallery, and non-profit incubator. The venue is a gathering place for people of different backgrounds to encourage reconciliation, peace, and positive social interaction. It also welcomes couples to celebrate their momentous occasion in its hallowed halls. The 3,000-square-foot Old Brick is available for both simple and elaborate weddings of up to 300 guests. The cavernous main hall boasts an original solid oak floor, wood wainscoting, exposed beams, and breathtaking stained glass windows. It also features a built-in stage that can be used for ceremonies or the sweetheart table and next to which sits a Baldwin grand piano. In addition, the hall is equipped with a prep kitchen and adjacent to a room that can function as a get-ready suite or staging location. Outside, a 2,000-square-foot patio is perfect for outdoor soirees and provides spectacular views of the church’s stunning brick façade. Old Brick can be rented all year round and comes with comprehensive, flexible, and affordable wedding packages. These include tables and chairs, heating and air-conditioning, two wireless microphones, two wireless projectors, a sound system, and off-street parking. Outside vendors for catering, beer, and wine are also welcome, although no liquor is permitted. Director of Operations and Events Julie Thomas invites you to get in touch and tour this unique and elegant venue.
