    I can’t wait!

    I looked at 10 different venue spots but as soon as I saw the clay theatre, and Andrea’s vision I knew it was the perfect place! They are constantly giving updates on the construction and are great with answering any questions we had. The surrounding area is beautiful as well - perfect for pictures. I can’t wait for the wedding of my dreams at the Clay Theatre

    Clay Theatre's reply:

    Thank you for the amazing review, Jessica! We are super excited about your wedding! Can't wait! #nowshowingtheclarks

    Best wedding venue in jacksonville

    The Clay Theatre is quickly becoming the most beautiful wedding venue in Northeast Florida, in my completely biased opinion. The different spaces throughout the venue are perfect for the wedding night we imagined: outdoor courtyard ceremony, outdoor/lobby cocktail hour, and beautiful indoor reception hall. The bridal suite and grooms room were also a bonus and absolutely stunning! I also cannot speak highly enough about The Clay Theatre ladies. Lauren Cowgill, wedding coordinator, is absolutely a God sent and took my jumbled unorganized indecisive Pinterest board and created something more beautiful than I ever could have imagined!! They also had recommendations for every vendor you'll need (photographer, caterer, DJ, etc) which made it much more manageable to explore my options and make a decision. Almost a month later I am still getting compliments from guests! Without question, have your special day at the Clay theatre and I promise you will not regret it!

We love Andrea and The Clay Theatre! We actually met this awesome lady a few years ago at the annual Calavita event and fell in love with her sweet bubbly personality and her creative ideas for the Theatre. We are so excited to be part of something so special and looking forward to the grand opening! Andrea has thought of every single detail with care and intent and we firmly believe this venue is going to rock Clay County and all of the First Coast!
