Best Wedding Venue EVER
Briscoe Manor is by far the best wedding venue around!!! Deciding to book Briscoe Manor for our wedding day was easily the best decision we made – literally not one regret! Thanks to their amazing staff and our OUTSTANDING coordinator, Ashley ---- my wedding day dream became my reality!! From start to finish Briscoe Manor and their staff exceeded all our expectations and were there for us every step of the way. We booked Briscoe a year out from our big day and no lie I sent them 1 million emails throughout the year with random questions and they ALWAYS got back to me immediately with a response and never left a single question unanswered. We originally worked with Jamie when we went to tour the venue and my goodness did we connect well with her. Jamie has such a bubbly personality and a way of making you feel welcomed and comfortable from the second you meet her. We worked with Jamie for about the first 9 months of our planning and she did an amazing job of booking and handling every random thing we threw her way. Again, she was always super quick to respond to every email sent – even on her days off! Talk about incredible customer service!! Then, a few months out from our big day we were assigned Ashley as our coordinator and O-M-G we we’re instantly amazed and connected so well with her. Ashley has such a calming personality and a way of making an anxious bride and demanding mother-of-the-bride feel such at peace. I honestly have no idea how I could’ve survived my wedding day without Ashley and her organized self! Ashley was literally my saving grace the entire month before our wedding, leading up to the week of our wedding, and all the way to the day of! She knew I was extremely anxious and even provided me with her personal cell phone number to contact her at any time the week of and the day of our wedding, which she didn’t have to do but goes to show how invested she is in her brides! Needless to say all thanks to Ashley and the entire staff at Briscoe our big day was everything and more than we could’ve ever imagined!!!!!! Our guests are still raving about how delicious the food was, how well kept the entire property was, and how it was “the most beautiful wedding they’d ever been too!” Thank you Ashley, Jamie, Rachel with Behind the Bash, and the entire staff at Briscoe Manor for providing us with the best wedding experience ever!!Sent on 05/14/2019

Loved working with the Briscoe Manor team. Not only did they take care of the couple and make sure everything was running smoothly that asked multiple times if we needed anything.
J&A Entertainment loves Briscoe Manor as well as all the wonderful ladies that coordinate every wedding. Briscoe Manor is a facility that always seems to impress me when I walk through the doors. The Chapel is 2nd to none, the reception ballroom is not only beautiful but has an amazing back patio area to watch the fireworks blast the night away. J&A Entertainment is happy to have taken part in several events at this location. If you're looking for a beautiful venue with class as well as employees who are passionate about making your special day absolutely perfect well Briscoe Manor is your destination :-)
