DON'T HESITATE TO REACH OUT.
I was sitting in a meeting with Carly, of Carly Marie Events, talking about all the great things Greensboro has to offer. This was when a relatively new event space came into the conversation. She brought up Cadillac Service Garage and told me this Greensboro wedding venue used to be an auto-paint shop. It was taken over by some new owners who transformed it into a destination for co-working and events. My ears perked up and my eyes widened! I loved the concept and knew I had to see it as she explained the space in more detail.
Later that afternoon I traveled the short distance to the building address to see Cadillac Service Garage first-hand. It was such an impromptu decision but I was in the area and was aching to see it. Lo and behold, a manager was there who asked if I wanted to peek inside…of course I said yes. Below are photos from that day. I hope I’m lucky enough to photograph a wedding here in the near future! It’s totally my style and I jive with its urban feel in a southern town. I know couples who get married here will jive with my style of photography.
The space is very industrial cool. The entrance area has a black and white checkered tile floor and a gorgeous bar. Rolling chalkboards provide a canvas of endless possibilities: guests could potentially find the wedding couples names there or the evening’s charity event or hand drawn menu options. A beautifully crafted wood and metal staircase leads to an upstairs space. Wood details abound whether in this Greensboro wedding venue’s spaces, such as the garden wall outside or the beautiful furniture inside. The brick highlights the building’s 60+ year old history: did you know it was purchased around 2012 and took five years of thoughtful renovations to to reopen it? It’s definitely earned its place on the National Register of Historic Places in North Carolina. Their sky-high walls in the main reception space, unique custom lighting and white sound-absorbing panels provide a vast backdrop for any decorations from balloons, to draping or flowers. If you want a birds-eye view of the celebration the upstairs bar is the perfect spot for it!
