Look no further!

From start to finish, the staff at Clay Theatre went above and beyond to ensure that our New Year's Eve wedding day was nothing short of perfection. The staff at Clay Theatre were professional, attentive, and genuinely caring. They took the time to listen to our vision and worked hard to bring it to life, paying close attention to every detail. The venue itself is absolutely stunning. The CT team were always available to answer our questions, offer guidance, and provide support throughout the planning process. On the day of our wedding, they flawlessly executed every detail, allowing us to relax and fully enjoy the moment. Clay Theatre provided us with the wedding of our dreams. If you're looking for a wedding venue that will exceed your expectations, I highly recommend Clay Theatre. Trust me, you won't be disappointed!

I can鈥檛 wait!

I looked at 10 different venue spots but as soon as I saw the clay theatre, and Andrea鈥檚 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鈥檛 wait for the wedding of my dreams at the Clay Theatre

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!
