Our building was built in the 1930's and was the auto mechanic shop for the original Chevrolet dealership in downtown Fayetteville. It has been restored beautifully both inside and out. Our building from every corner will exude industrial charm. From our exposed brick walls, 25ft vaulted wood ceilings, a car lift turned into a table, indoor mezzanines, hanging bistro lights and so much more. Our venue is a must see in person. The exterior walls and landscaping are perfect for the backdrop to any photo shoot.
There are unique features everywhere you look at Studio 215.

One of our favorite features on our exterior is the old faded "CHEVROLET CO." sign painted on the side of our building and the green vines that have continued to grow and climb up the brick wall.
This feature has quickly become one of the most beloved photography locations here at our venue. From first looks, bridal portraits, family portraits and everything in-between it photographs absolutely beautifully.
A bunch of the original history for this 1937 old renovated autobody shop still lives proudly on display to this day. If you look up you will see the beautiful 25ft wooden arched ceilings and black crossbow beams which adorn our hanging café lights. When you walk in you will see our car lift turned into a table. Right next to the car lift you will see our giant chalkboard wall which measures at 15.5’ wide x 8.5’ tall. It make for the perfect photo backdrop wall for your guests to snap a picture in front of. The exposed brick wall has quickly become one of the most beloved features of this building, it definitely is one of our favorites! Our space continues upstairs with our two indoor mezzanines which are perfect for extra seating, photo booths, DJ/Band or even a lounge area. For our weddings and vow renewals we have an additional space which is our glamorous suite (bridal suite) and industrial suite (groom’s room). Perfect for getting ready in and to fully enjoy your special day!
A unique yellow car lift is from the 1930s and acts as the perfect table for your cake, a dessert bar, gifts and cards, framed photos, a formal place card table or even for an elaborate floral centerpiece.
Our car lift can be dressed up or dressed down. We have had couple’s decorate the underneath with greenery and floating candles. We have also had couple’s cover it with either a linen or sheer fabric. The possibilities are endless with this industrial “table”!
(Our car lift measures at 8’7” long x 2’ wide)
We have two beautiful balconies in our big studio which we refer to as our mezzanines. Our small mezzanine (pictured with the five bridal gowns) features our spiral staircase. It has quickly become one of the most beloved photography locations, ceremony backdrop, or home for the DJ or one of our mobile bars. On the opposite side of the main Studio we have another larger mezzanine which features a standard staircase (pictured with the individual bride). Our larger mezzanine can host tables and chairs, a band, DJ, photo booth or even a cool lounge area.
Our little studio has a single mezzanine with a spiral staircase as well.
Some additional features we have are our mobile bar that was made out of recycled materials. Pictured above the bar is our old Chevrolet truck hood. Next to the bar photograph you will see our mobile planter boxes with trees in it. They are mobile anywhere on the ground floor inside the main Studio. They are most popular with being utilized to create a faux wall for wedding ceremonies (pictured) and also adding color and texture around the venue.
Our Glamorous Bridal Suite…
We have a special room for all our main Studio weddings and vow renewals for our brides to get ready in. Complete with an ornate gold mirror, vintage gold chandelier, makeup vanity with gold Chiavari chairs and a antique white sofa. All set the perfect backdrop for your special day.

For the gentlemen we have an industrial themed room to get ready in. Complete with exposed brick, a leather couch and pair of chairs, a tv with an x-box and also a large custom wood framed mirror.
Little Studio 215
Located in the same building, but in a separate location from our main Studio is our Little Studio 215. It has all the same industrial features of our main Studio with the added striking feature of our pallet wall. Our 25ft tall pallet wall is definitely the show stopper in this space.
