    Best Venue Ever!

    The Clay Theatre was the best decision of my entire wedding. When we booked the venue it was still under construction but the vision Andrea and Daniel had was clear. From the very beginning they were so helpful in answering questions, providing clear communication, and making sure everything went according to plan. I also used the coordinator through the venue, Lauren, who could not have done a better job. She was so helpful and made it the perfect night. I am SO thankful to have found this beautiful venue and their team.

    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

    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!
