With an upscale urban feel, The Clayton House embodies style and sophistication. The contemporary design of The Clayton House is evident from every angle—from the stunning block walls to the exposed ductwork. A masterful display of modern design elements includes soaring ceilings, intricate light fixtures and expansive windows.
The event spaces provide a true indoor-outdoor experience for all guests, with spacious covered patio areas and a large reception room with glass garage doors that can be fully opened to the outdoors. Though modern in design, The Clayton House creates a serene and warm setting with its eclectic use of wood, metal and glass.

Refined and Sophisticated 

The juxtaposition of refinement and charm makes The Clayton House a truly unique setting for a special wedding celebration. With three flexible event spaces to work with, wedding couples can create a personalized and intimate setting for their dream wedding.
The Rafters encompasses over 3,800 square feet of event space, making it ideal for either a ceremony or reception event. With a nod toward rustic charm, The Rafters gets its name from the soaring wood-beamed ceiling which is adorned with contemporary chandeliers and lighting. The event area can be utilized to make space for up to 500 guests for a cocktail-style event, 350 people for a theater-style ceremony or up to 200 guests for a seated reception. There is a 1,426 square foot atrium that adjoins The Rafters, allowing for a mixed-use area for either a bar area or cocktail space.
The Great Room is aptly named for its grand, vaulted space covering over 5,200 square feet. Perfect for a cocktail reception or large seated dinner, The Great Room brings together a unique modern design with wood, concrete and glass features. This Great Room can accommodate up to 700 guests for cocktails, 500 for a ceremony or up to 300 people for a seated dinner. A 1,600 square foot lounge area offers a stunning built-in bar making it ideal for cocktails before the reception or as an after party locale.
The Porch is a beautifully-landscaped patio area adjacent to The Great Room that offers an additional 3,100 square feet of entertainment space. With contemporary glass garage doors that cover the width of one wall, The Porch allows for a true indoor-outdoor event. Soft bistro lighting and comfortable seating create an intimate setting that can be used for a ceremony, cocktails or a post-wedding party. The Porch allows for up to 500 people for cocktails, 300 guests for a ceremony or up to 150 for a seated dinner.
Catering is offered through Clayton's in-house service and includes everything from tables and chairs to linens and tableware. The menu is created based on seasonal items and focuses on fresh ingredients from local purveyors. Bar service is also done in-house and offers hand-crafted cocktails and local craft beers. Additional vendors for photography, a wedding cake, decorations and entertainment are welcome at The Clayton House.
After the ceremony, your guests will enjoy an outdoor cocktail hour, and will likely be treated to a spectacular desert sunset. A nice touch: The Paseo's outdoor fireplace ensures comfort in those chilly desert evenings. This is an opportunity for some stunning couple and group portraits in this incredible, unique setting.
According to WeddingWire, a wedding ceremony starts at $1,000 for the space rental. Reception rental costs start at $2,500 for off-peak season and $3,000 during peak season. Additional pricing depends upon wedding size and menu/bar options.
