Wine and Blush Fall Wedding at Briscoe Manor

Greg was smitten when Meredith first messaged him on the dating app, Bumble, and said, “Hi LG!” since only his family called him by that nickname. Fast forward in time, Greg surprised Meredith with a weekend trip to his hometown in San Antonio, TX. It was in his hometown that Greg chose to propose to Meredith on the balcony of the historic Hotel Emma. Unfortunately, just a few months after their engagement, Meredith’s mother was diagnosed with cancer. Unable to make it to the wedding, Meredith and Greg found meaningful ways to honor her.

For their fall wedding, the couple chose to wed at the timeless and elegant Briscoe Manor. Meredith’s father officiated the wedding ceremony in the Briscoe Chapel, accompanied by 275 of their closest loved ones. They exchanged their vows in front of a stunning gold arch draped with florals and greenery. The bride described her wedding as “classic with a hint of modern” and thoughtfully included both wine and blush throughout the ceremony and reception. Even the deer mounts hanging on the bar walls had a wine and blush floral touch! Garden floral arrangements beautifully decorated the tables along with silver dollar eucalyptus hanging from the chandeliers and fireplace. Behind the Bash kept fall in mind, serving up a decadent fall salad with fresh spinach leaves, complete with a carving station offering both herb-crusted beef sirloin and pork loin stuffed with jalapeno cheddar cornbread.  Later that evening, white glow sticks and flower crowns were a hit on the dance floor! One of their favorite memories of the wedding was the fabulous firework display before riding off in a pearl-colored Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud II from Monarch British Limousines.
