Perfect day in imperfect circumstances
Like so many others, our wedding plans were impacted by COVID-19. When we realized the impact that the pandemic would have on our event, we made the difficult decision to cancel our wedding reception, but we still planned to marry privately at our original venue. We took another hit when our original venue decided to close through the summer due to COVID. Despite another change of plans, we were determined still to get married. I began reaching out to numerous venues in hopes that they could accommodate our now “micro” or “petite” wedding (as it is now coined). Nearly immediately after my inquiry, Ashley with Briscoe Manor responded emphatically and said that they wanted to help in any way that they could. After receiving fire marshal approval the next business day, Ashley reached out to us with a quote for our event. Two business days later, after some minor adjustments to the timeline due to our requests, of which Ashley/Briscoe Manor were graciously receptive, we had a signed contract. All of this was two weeks prior to our date. A week later we had a site visit and met with Ashley who was SO warm and accommodating from the get-go. We left that meeting with a renewed excitement for our upcoming wedding despite all the sadness we were feeling to not have our family and friends be able to celebrate with us as we had planned for the last year. Flash forward one week later, and it was time for our wedding! I think that for the first time in my life I was able to let go with confidence because I knew that Ashley would have everything at the venue under control. We had our ceremony in their courtyard, and it was breathtaking! Although not what we originally imagined and planned for, I cannot imagine a better backdrop for our day. I was able to get ready in their bridal suite, take portraits in one courtyard and the chapel (also stunning!), we married in the main courtyard, took photos in the vineyard, and returned back to the courtyard for our cake cutting, champagne toast, and first dance. They also helped surprise us with video well wishes from our loved ones that could not be with us due to the pandemic! The beautiful venue coupled with the impeccable service Ashley provided made it a day that we will cherish for the rest of our lives. Although our experience with Briscoe Manor is relatively short-lived compared to couples who are planning on a more traditional timeline and hosting a full-blown event, I am confident that Ashley and Briscoe Manor would provide the same friendly, high level of service that we experienced on our absolutely perfect day!Sent on 06/08/2020

Opinion from a wedding officiant
I was the officiant for the Junek-Lane wedding that took place on Sunday, November 29th. The staff was wonderful and extremely professional. They made my job for the day so much easier. A BIG shout-out for Jamie, the wedding coordinator, who managed a ton of details and made it all work smoothly.Sent on 12/01/2020

Such a Pleasure!
One word: Jamie! She was and is such a huge delight to work with! From the beginning back in April 2020 through Aug 2020, Jamie was so patient with me and my fiancé (oops, now husband) as we were deciding whether if we wanted to do a COVID ‘mini’ wedding. Even though our wedding had less than 20 people, Jamie treated it as if there were 200 people, by going above and beyond her call of duty. She is very responsive, and we cannot thank her enough for everything she did to make it all come together! We highly recommend Jamie and Briscoe Manor to anyone looking to celebrate their big day. The place is absolutely beautiful in person, and we cannot wait for my husband and I to go back and have a photoshoot there since we were unable to fit one into our schedule before our wedding. Once again, thank you so much Jamie and Briscoe Manor for everything!Sent on 09/14/2020
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 :-)
