Ella’s Décor Barn is a space that was built in reaction to noticing how many specialty items our brides seem to be using lately. With the social media world we live in encompassed with Pinterest, Etsy, and Facebook, brides today are becoming more and more savvy in making their weddings unique and a special event that they want to make sure everyone remembers. We thought about how we could help our brides with items that are an upfront cost to them, but end up becoming items that are just used that one time with no place in their home. For example, those 15 lanterns that lined the ceremony aisle or the 2 wine barrels topped with a rustic door used for a cake table. Some brides might have a special place for that in their home after the wedding, but for many, that time and effort ends after the event. For us, we want to provide the same things, but at a fraction of the cost. If we can rent a bride a $50 wine barrel and save her from purchasing one for $160, then we have accomplished our goal. Even after events where we see something that we may want to add to our inventory list, we ask to purchase it from the bride so it can be used again for the same purpose.
At the time of construction, August 2015, Ella is Jorden and Stephanie Mahler’s 23 month old daughter and twin sister to their son, Easton. Jorden is the Director of Operation and Owner of Briscoe Manor and his wife, Stephanie is a former Event Sales and Coordinator. People ask what will be dedicated to Easton…we shall see some day. We like keep our competitors on their toes by providing out brides with expansions like Ella’s Décor Barn. We must separate ourselves from others in big ways that only our brides will appreciate.
