Weddings & Reception Venues

The Clayton Center Weddings


The Clayton Center’s historic ambience and small-town charm make a unique backdrop for your special day. Ceremonies are  impressive when performed in our stately, impeccably restored 1926 auditorium. The theatrical lighting and excellent acoustic qualities in the auditorium, combined with two backstage dressing rooms and other amenities, place the spotlight right where it should be – on the bride and groom.

The Clayton Center’s most popular reception space is the 4,000-square-foot Lobby Gallery. With its exposed antique brick, atrium-like openness and overhead Terraces, the Lobby is the perfect space for mingling and dancing for up to 350 people. As a built-in bonus, the main floor of the Lobby features high quality, local art exhibits to complement your décor and add to your guests’ experience.

There are no required vendor or catering restrictions at The Clayton Center, and our experienced staff will work with you to ensure that this day is uniquely yours.
