    The venue (place, catering, tables and chairs, bar) was one of the least stressful parts of the wedding. Everything was under one roof!

    This venue went above and beyond to make our special day happen. They helped us save money wherever we could. Gave us upgrades and perks when available so it would be easier for everyone! Was willing to talk through all the different options and was always available for the never ending questions I have! Couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful or special place to get married. We wanted somewhere that was the heart of San Antonio and we found it!

    We are so happy that we had our dream wedding here at The Depot! All staff made sure we had every detail the way we wanted.

The staff and service was very accommodating all night, Rosemary's Catering was amazing, and it was definitely a dream come true. Strongly recommend!!
