Emma + Ty will always be special to us since they were the first wedding ever at Clay Theatre! They were also the first couple to book a wedding at our new venue before construction on the venue even started. They had a ton of fun personal touches and beautiful decor! We will never forget this perfect wedding! 

Emma used to come to Clay Theatre on school field trips to see movies, so it was really special for them to be the first couple married at the new venue!  

180 Guests Reception Layout

We loved the classic look of the white linens with the pops of dusty blue florals and greenery in the arrangements. Janie Simpson was the floral designer. The champagne chiavari chairs and the gold tones in the vases tied it all together. Their guest count ended up at at 182. The seating arrangement was made up of 18 60" rounds and a sweetheart table. They added on what Ty called a "baby taby" as a kid's table (a 30" round bistro table). A bruchetta display for cocktail hour was set up by PJ's at the back of the main space.

Table set for 10 guests with plated caesar salads by PJ's. The couple chose a buffet style dinner to follow that consisted of Herb Roasted Pork Loin with a chimichurri and raspberry chipotle sauce, blackened chicken breast, red bliss mashed potatoes, and green bean almandine.

The groomsmen channeling The Beatles here. We love all the creative shots by Copper Lens of the bridal party. The formal photos were taken at the park and at the Green Cove Springs City Hall building.

A non-traditional setup for Emma + Ty's ceremony. The sun wasn't cooperating for this 4:00pm ceremony in April. Our in-house planner, Lauren, came up with a creative setup facing the West side of the courtyard to keep the direct sun off of the ceremony. Pipe and drape was set up in front of the double doors and Emma's dad made this custom geometric arch as their backdrop. Janie Simpson used dusty blue florals and greenery to create the finished product. This setup is a great option for summer weddings in the courtyard. 

Perfect weather for this April courtyard wedding. The courtyard was set with 180 folding chairs. 

That "just married" feeling! 

Copper Lens caught this cute moment of the couple looking out the ticket window. Check out the custom movie posters with Emma + Ty's engagement photos! 

Introducing Mr. and Mrs. Corfield for the first time from the balcony! Most of our couples have continued this awesome trend! Emma and Ty were introduced first, and their bridal party was introduced from the double doors below. 

And then the couple surprised us with this epic intro on Heeleys. They skated all down the aisle and kicked them off for their first dance. We LOVE unexpected touches that show off the couple's personality! 

The couple cut the cake in the main space by the DJ booth. We loved the naked cake by the way- it was made by a family friend.

This donut wall in the lobby was a huge hit. The board was was custom made, and acrylic holders on the side were from Amazon. Donuts by Krispy Kreme! 

PJ's catering provided a dessert display in the lobby with key lime pie mini shooters and an assortment of giant cookies. They also went with a coffee bar from PJ's. 

The guests danced all night to music by Grayson from Generation Y Entertainment. We cleared away 3 tables to make a giant dance floor at the front of the room.

Emma and all her bridesmaids made good use of Generation Y's classic microphone prop. It was an unforgettable night!

Emma "flossing" with the DJ! We love Grayson and how he interacts with the crowd. 

The sweetest moment was the couple's last private dance. We changed the uplighting to Emma's dusty blue color and Susannah from Copper Lens Photography snuck this photo (and we may have been peaking from the balcony too)!

The first ever sparkler exit at Clay Theatre was pretty epic! There's something about the original brick road and the neon lights lit up with the couple's name that is so magical. We couldn't have asked for a more amazing couple and their families to be part of our first wedding as a new venue. We loved planning with the Milican's and Corfield's and were so thankful they hired all our recommended vendors. It made for such a smooth and stress free wedding day for all!
