The Clayton Center was a delightful setting for my daughter's recent wedding ceremony and reception. Fantastic staff that was responsive to and anticipated our every need throughout the whole process. Beautiful architectural details and great juxtaposition of vintage auditorium and modern loft-like reception space. Highly recommend!
