    Mays Family Center at the Witte Museum

    Eco-friendly architecture, lofty 17-foot vaulted ceilings, and an abundance of natural light are just a few elements of San Antonio’s newest 10,000-square-foot premier event venue—the Mays Family Center at The Witte Museum.

    The relationship began 45 years ago when the founder and Chairman Emeritus of The RK Group, Rosemary Kowalski, prepared the first Witte Game Dinner—an elite fundraising event featuring delectable dishes using wild game stored by museum donors and members.

    After a long history of success, The Witte Museum and The RK Group, an industry-leading hospitality and culinary service management company, have formed an official partnership at the Mays Family Center.

    “Witte and RK Group are synonymous with great experiences. It was a natural progression that we should come together,” says Jessica Zapatero, vice president of marketing and communications for The RK Group.

    Follow the three-toed prehistoric prints visible to passersby on Broadway until you reach a set of custom-made wrought-iron gates surrounded by petrified trees welcoming guests to what museum staff call “the new Witte.”

    What does this addition to the city mean for brides and grooms? The Mays Family Center at The Witte Museum will function in two ways: as a museum exhibition center and a destination for special events and weddings.

    “This year, from May 14 to September 5, the center will be an exhibition space for the Witte’s show stopping, sensory immersing expo, ‘Maya: Hidden Worlds Revealed.’ Throughout the rest of the year, the center will serve as a special events venue,” explains Account Executive Marian McGrath.

    For the Alamo City, the Mays Family Center provides an unrivaled exhibition and events space. For couples, the center is poised to accommodate large, intimate, and cultural weddings.

    Depending on seating configurations and setup, the space accommodates up to 800 guests indoors and up to 1,250 outdoors, making the Mays Family Center at The Witte Museum one of the largest event spaces in San Antonio.

    Every element was taken into consideration during the building’s southern contemporary construction— from the wineglass-friendly railing width on the balcony to the eco-conscious features like recycled tire carpeting and local lumber porches.

    The spacious room is bookended by two nooks with floor-to-ceiling windows, which Marian and Jessica call “jewel boxes,” allowing ample natural light. With unobstructed 180-degree views, couples can overlook the gorgeous landscape from inside the new facility or book their big day outside in the garden.

    For couples on their way to the altar, this is a dream partnership. With The RK Group’s award-winning services, including catering, event production, design, and management, and the Mays Family Center’s top-notch space, you can’t go wrong when planning your special event.

    “We can create an experience that’s customized to the client and provide them with services they can’t find anywhere else in the city,” Jessica says. “One call does it all.”
