History
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 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. 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!

    First, our compliments to Monica, the events coordinator at McNay Art Museum. She guided us on our daughter's wedding journey for almost a year, and we will always be grateful for her wisdom. We could not have asked for a more perfect evening. The venue is stunning from the moment you walk through the lush grounds to enter the impressive mansion. And then to be able to offer guests the opportunity to view masterpieces from the world's most significant artists--what a privilege. The atmosphere was perfectly romantic from start to finish. We highly recommend this venue to brides searching for a magical night.
