This mansion, a Spanish Colonial Revival house, dates back to 1926. It was constructed by Marion Koogler McNay. McNay was an oil heiress, an artist and a collector. She turned the house into her own private museum during her lifetime. In 1950 when McNay left her residence, she turned it, along with her collection of 700 works, into the first museum of modern art in the state of Texas.

I couldn't have chosen a better venue for our wedding! It was unique to San Antonio and the staff couldn't have been more accommodating for our guest that night.

I hardly had to buy any decor for the outside ceremony we had on the grounds of the McNay, just some signage and flower pedals for the aisle. The outside itself created the vibe and feel I wanted. ... Read more Everything went so smooth, my guests loved the open gallery for cocktail hour and being surrounded by art all day! We utilized their projector they offer at a certain rate, to project our favorite photos of us behind the indoor bar! I could go on about just how beautiful my wedding day was, so I highly recommend you see the venue for yourself!
