Rows of White Chairs at Wedding Reception Hotel Contessa


Over 100 years ago, a cypress tree was planted in that space, and over time the roots of this tree have formed a small island that extends out into the calm waters of the Riverwalk. This island has come to be known as Marriage Island. It is located in front of the Hotel Contessa and is a popular destination for wedding ceremonies.

The island belongs to the city and Downtown Operations oversees the use of the venue for a charge of $200 per 30 minutes. For more information regarding Marriage Island, contact the Ministry at San Antonio at (210) 650- 2436 or by email at theministryatsanantonio@gmail.com.
