The Assembly Room
 at Art'n Motion

Favorite feature of the venue?
My favorite feature of this venue is the new and unique setting that the building provides for the historic town of St. Augustine which has drawn all kinds of people and events in. This building is unique and expensive in appearance, however it remains classy and timeless with brick walls and clean lines.

What are your couples’ favorite features of the venue?

Beautiful building, memorable and unique setting, physical location and separate spaces for the 3 main events of the wedding day- ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. The impressive architecture and size of the building itself draws people in. It is newly built with modern amenities, but designed to look like it has been around since the prohibition era. The Assembly Room is a very unique venue that features rare and classic cars. The Art 'n Motion cars create a unique and memorable event experience and have shown to be great conversation starters for wedding guests. The location of the venue itself is a major feature that couples love. This building sits 5 minutes from downtown, historic Saint Augustine, but just far enough away to avoid the traffic and provide our own private parking.

Tell us a little about the venue? Is there a history or a cool story couples love to hear?
Art 'n Motion was dreamt up by the family to be a beautiful gallery for car lovers to enjoy viewing classic and rare cars, as well as a dealership specializing in rare and classic cars. Erin's brother, Justin Felker, owns and operates the Art 'n Motion dealership. Another section of the building is also home to the SLR race team. The property has now been home to a car dealership for the second time, as it was once the site of the Yarborough Olds Cadillac Nissan dealership. When designing the building, we really wanted to make sure that it stood out as an improvement to the area, while still respecting the old feel of our historic city.

What are the venue spaces? 
THE SHOWROOM
The first level of Art ‘n Motion consists of The Showroom. This large, open room shows off beautiful brick walls, shiny stained concrete floors and is surrounded by floor-to-ceiling windows. This room also features a massive barn door backdrop and convenient restrooms. It is the perfect clean slate to make the vision for your event come to life. Highlights: Our largest event room; Massive barn-door backdrop; Convenient Restrooms. 

THE CLASSIC
The second floor of Art ‘n Motion opens into The Classic. This room is the similar industrial style feel as the Showroom on a smaller scale. Featuring neutral tones, brick walls, massive windows and iron railings looking onto the Showroom below, this is a perfect space for a more intimate event. This room also has its own convenient restroom access and elevator access.
Highlights: Balcony setting looking onto The Showroom; Convenient Restrooms and Water Fountains; Elevator Access

ELIZABETH ROOM
Adjoining The Classic is the Elizabeth Room. After opening the beautiful French doors, this room showcases the perfect mix of ornate woodwork and brick, a bar work-space and unique industrial lighting, making The Elizabeth Room a guest favorite. This room has large windows looking out onto the city on two sides and seemingly floating above The Showroom on the other. Named after the family’s first antique car “Elizabeth,” who will often be spotted at Art ‘n Motion, this special room is the perfect size for business meetings or larger events’ buffet lines.

THE ASSEMBLY LINE
The Assembly Line Room is located in the back half of the second floor of Art ‘n Motion. This rectangular space offers a unique industrial feel with fogged garage doors, an oversized sliding barn door and metal chandeliers. The room proceeds onto “The Lift Deck” terrace offering both indoor and outdoor access for your event making it perfect for cocktail hour for weddings, dancing for an upstairs reception or a small event on its own.

THE LIFT DECK
The Lift Deck is our outdoor terrace just beyond The Assembly Line room. Looking over San Marco Street, this is a large concrete deck with black iron railings and lighting making it an outdoor choice for cocktail hour or other small events.

THE BRIDAL SUITE
Our stunning bridal suite provides plenty of lounge seating and salon-style counter space with bar stools for hair and make-up. This room also features huge windows providing natural light and is topped off with a twinkling chandelier and “chandelier” lamp for that feminine touch. Located in the back half of the second floor, it has a “behind the scenes” feel giving the bride and bridal party some privacy and peace while preparing for the special day.

THE CATERERS’ KITCHEN
Our caterers’ kitchen includes work stations, a refrigerator, large sinks and a microwave. This kitchen is roomy, clean and ready for events! Located in the back half of the second floor, it is hidden from the event spaces but sits close to the stairs, hallway and elevator giving it convenient access to any venue room.

What’s included in your packages?
We have package options ranging from small elopements to all-inclusive full weddings for up to 150 guests, to customized weddings for up to 200 guests. All of our wedding packages include a professional in-house coordinator. Our most popular wedding packages include almost all the venue spaces, including the Classic ceremony room, Assembly Line cocktail hour room and terrace, and The Showroom reception space, as well as banquet tables, chairs, bars and other venue wedding-day necessities. 

Are there any photo restrictions at the venue?
There are certain areas with restricted access. Drones are not allowed inside the venue. Gallery cars cannot be sat on.

Do you have a Getting Ready room?
Yes! 

How much can couples expect to pay on average at your venue?
