Briscoe Manor was a wonderful place to have our daughter’s wedding. Our daughter was married on July 8th (just over a week ago). The entire process (around 9 months) was very simple. Never thought I would say that, but it was. Stephanie Mahler was our day of coordinator and our first contact with the venue. The one thing I loved about this is that I wanted to plan where the flowers would come from, the cake, music, etc. I didn’t want a wedding planner taking captive my wallet. So I did a lot of research on various vendors and the BM coordinator would answer very honestly if she knew a vendor, how they did if she did know them, etc. Never once did she try to recommend someone that would be out of my price range. My husband and I wanted for our daughter a very rustic, elegant wedding/reception given our family has acreage and have shared this with our children most of their life. It was an important flair for the day. No worries at all (particularly important since I do work a career that requires a lot of hours). Got down to the last few weeks and Stephanie basically told me to hand everything over and she would make sure to touch base with the vendors the last few weeks and also the week of. I had no contact with those vendors at all. The rehearsal and day of went great. I really did nothing as far as making sure this ran smoothly. Stephanie knew what we wanted and executed it flawlessly. Now don’t even get me started on the food by Behind the Bash. AMAZING! We hosted around 180 guests and I will tell you that they all have said over and over again how elegant and fun the evening was. The food was AMAZING – better than we could have imagined, and we have tasted it before. Great Party!!! We have another daughter and will most likely use them again. Worth every dime and I can tell you I did the research. You might as well go ahead and do this cause any other way you slice it, you end up with the same price, but this is a sure bet for a great wedding and reception.

Our wedding day was wonderful at Briscoe Manor. My mom did a lot to make the day perfect, but the vendors and Stephanie (our wedding day coordinator) worked so hard as well. We chose Briscoe Manor for a few reasons. Just driving into Briscoe Manor is absolutely amazing. The gorgeous gates and long road into Briscoe made me fall in love with the venue. Also, the Bridal Suite is perfect!!! Ladies, you will be bringing so many accessories and makeup on your wedding day, you’re going to need a lot of room for you and your bridesmaids to get ready! This is by far the most gorgeous and roomy Bridal Suite I saw when searching for a venue. The Chapel is also stunning! One detail that we loved about the Chapel is that the pews are spaced so that people can walk down the aisle and around the aisle. Stephanie was so organized and kept track of every detail! My mom and I were very picky about everything, but Stephanie always did everything she could to make us happy. I love Stephanie because she has such a sweet and calm personality. On the wedding day, every time she spoke to me, she made me more comfortable and relaxed. Stephanie is a very hard worker, and we are so thankful God gave us her as our wedding day coordinator! We love Briscoe Manor!!! Thank you for everything!

Everything we discussed and decided on were delivered exactly as promised. Briscoe is a great place for any function I could think of. Having my birthday party there made it even more special. Thanks to the staff for everything.

My Husband and I got married on 3/25/2017. From the moment we toured Briscoe Manor I knew it was the place for us to get married. There are so many beautiful venues in the Houston area but what made me love Briscoe, besides the gorgeous venue and landscape, was how amazing the staff is. Every single person is so friendly and eager to help or answer any questions you might have from the moment you walk in the door to after your wedding day! Our wedding coordinator was Ashley Manchaca. I can’t say enough amazing things about her. She was fabulous! She made my wedding day run flawless and I had no anxiety about any vendors or little hiccups during the day because she covered everything! Thank you, Ashley for everything! My day wouldn’t of been the same without you!

Thank you so much for being so wonderful. Not sure we could have planned a more “perfect day” for Kaitlyn and John without you. You were always available to answer all of my crazy emails. Your attention to detail and organization is exactly what kept Kaitlyn and I sane. Thank you for everything. Seriously, you’re the best!

Thank you so much for being the best wedding coordinator! You have been so on top of everything since day 1 when we chose our wedding date last summer. You were considerate of every detail that we had for our big day and even gave us some ideas that added a special touch. We feel like you not only cared about making our wedding day perfect, but about our future as husband and wife. We are so excited to start our life journey together and are glad that you and the rest of the Briscoe Manor staff were a part of it!

I cannot put into words how wonderful you have been through this whole planning process. You made me feel comfortable from the start. You kept me from worrying. I can honestly say that I am not concerned about anything going into this. Anyone who knows me would never believe that I a not worrying…so that says a lot! You are amazing at your job and are the sweetest! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Dear Jamie,

We want to thank you for being such a wonderful coordinator. You truly outdid yourself the day of Callie & Steven’s wedding. You always had a smile on your face and made everyone feel so special and cared for. We had a stress free day because you took care of all of our needs and even the needs we weren’t aware of. I meant it whenever I said whoever gets you as a wife will hit the jackpot! Your kind and compassionate spirit touches everyone who meets you. Thank you for doing your job with excellence and joy! We hope to see you again when pictures come back from the wedding.

Love, Patti Conn (MOB)
