The Venue
Looking for a unique wedding venue

with modern amenities? 

Clay Theatre is not your average wedding venue experience. Our staff will treat you like family and make you feel like movie stars on your special day. Not just because our venue is a historic movie theatre built in 1937, it's from the connections we make with our couples and the relationships we build over the months of planning. You will not just be a date on our calendar, but we will have invested in every single detail of your wedding day. We are real people, not just a business, who genuinely LOVE hosting weddings!

Our venue was custom built with a purpose. With many venues in the Jacksonville and St. Augustine market, we saw a need for a non-rustic, unique wedding venue option. We knew we had to have the perfect outdoor ceremony location, all white walls, private suites for couples to get ready pre-ceremony, and an awesome integrated lighting system for epic dance parties. Our vision came to life in April 2019. 

Clay Theatre has quickly become one of the top wedding reception venues and wedding ceremony locations in Jacksonville and neighboring St. Augustine, Florida. Winning Folio Weekly's awards for Best Reception Location and Best Place to Get Married in Jacksonville. Our courtyard space has become popular among couples seeking an outdoor ceremony location. With the ability to host weddings between 150-200 guests, our indoor reception space provides a historic yet modern feel that becomes the perfect backdrop for any theme. 

Our reception space can be transformed into the perfect bridal or baby shower venue, corporate meeting space, or intimate wedding reception venue for 50 guests or less. Whether you are looking to host an intimate wedding reception,  intimate elopement ceremony or extravagant seated dinner reception, our space is customize-able to fit your unique needs. 

With our recommended vendor list and flexible catering options, planning your wedding or event at Clay Theatre is seamless and stress free. Let us take care of all the details and provide you with a gorgeous ceremony and reception space. Located conveniently in between St. Augustine and Jacksonville, the Clay Theatre venue is the perfect backdrop for your big day!
