Timeless Chicago Wedding at the Brix on Fox

Gianna & Josh had been together for 8 years before tying the knot and weren’t going to let COVID stand in the way of their love!

They had a 50 person wedding at the BRIX on Fox in Carpentersville, a near by Chicago suburb, about an hour away from the downtown Chicago area. The open space is filled with brick walls, industrial ceiling, string lights, and wooden farmhouse tables. This historic building makes for such a romantic setting to start your marriage. Gianna made all the signage herself and

Gianna’s radiating bold and classic hair and makeup was done by Klaud 9 Beauty. The gorgeous glowing bridal gown she wore was from Berta Bridal and her colorful bouquet and all the florals were designed by Bloome Floral LLC.

The signage and decor was all of her own crafting and creative vision! She took DIY wedding decor to a whole new sophisticated level!

All the Chicago vendors worked so hard to bring their wedding vision to life and the wedding could not have been more beautiful but what was even more awe-inspiring was celebrating the union of these two sweet souls. This wedding day was full of so much emotion with their close family members being able to celebrate their newlywed status!
