Cielencki/Irvin Event – July 8th, 2017

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.
