Trendy brunch wedding at Brick and Beam in Springfield Historic District.
Brick and Beam in the historic district of Springfield makes for a trendy wedding venue. The exposed bricks and industrial lighting, the wood deck out back, the Springfield mural out front, everything about this building is dripping with urban coolness. Plus they have their own dedicated parking lot, so your guests won’t be late to the ceremony because they were “looking for parking” even though we all know they really just should have left a little earlier…
Emily and Nick’s brunch wedding at Brick and Beam was urban and understated, and complimented their personalities. I mean, they had a donut tower instead of a wedding cake. Could that have been any more perfect?
Brick and Beam has 2 wedding prep locations.
Let’s talk logistics: the entire second floor can be used for pre-wedding prep, wedding party hangouts, family holding area, basically whatever your pre-ceremony needs are. There’s plenty of space for hair and makeup to set up, for getting dressed, or for just lounging around eating breakfast and drinking mimosas. I love a wedding that has lots of built in pre-ceremony downtime. Couples are always so much more relaxed when they schedule time to, you know, relax. I know, that’s not always an option if you’ve got a large wedding party. But trust me, you’ll appreciate having the space to step away and stuff your face with croissants for a few minutes.
There’s also a smaller dressing room downstairs, so if you and your fiancé are not getting ready together (which is often the case), there are accommodations for both of you. Now you just have to fight over who gets the second floor…
The outdoor ceremony deck is stunning.
I love venues that have a variety of spaces to use throughout the wedding. For instance, Brick and Beam has a gorgeous wood deck outside with string lights, perfect for a wedding ceremony, cocktail hour, or even a smaller reception. Emily and Nick chose to have their daytime ceremony on the deck. The deck is conveniently surrounded by bamboo for privacy from neighboring buildings. And it gives the whole space a tropical vibe, which to me is just perfection.
Exposed brick and street lights give the main parlor an outdoor feel.
The main parlor gives me major outdoor vibes (think cobblestone streets in New Orleans). The walls are covered in gorgeous red bricks and the lighting is super industrial. The hanging pendant lights and street lamps on black poles scream sweet urban nothings. *swoon*
And you know what? This look is ideal for day or night weddings. There are large windows at the front that let in a lot of beautiful glowing light. (And what kind of photographer would I be if I didn’t give a shoutout to glowing light?) But if you’re planning on having a wedding after dark, the warm lighting in the parlor makes the whole room feel romantic and cozy, despite being pretty massive.
