Dream Wedding Venue
We chose to host our dream wedding at the San Antonio Museum of Art and it was an incredible experience. We looked all over San Antonio for a venue that fit our personality and style and nothing compared to what we received with SAMA. The event coordinator, Albert, was wonderful to work with. He was an excellent communicator and was always quick to answer any questions we had. He was also there for the big day to ensure everything went smoothly. Him and the entire museum team did a phenomenal job of making us feel welcomed and special. The grounds itself are gorgeous. We viewed this venue as a blank canvas with several courtyards to choose from. We opted for the West Courtyard with the River Pavillion. It was a perfect fit. The views of the river alongside the historical architecture of the museum made for a pretty spectacular evening. I would highly recommend hosting your wedding or next big event at SAMA. Your guests will be in for quite the treat!

SAMA was exceptional as a location for our wedding ceremony. From the start to the final day, the staff, especially Albert, was the best. The value of this location is a hidden gem in the city.
