Our Story


Hi There!

I’m Allison and I’m so happy you’ve considered us to share in your big day! My husband, Lee, and I proudly work alongside each other to ensure your wedding is as magical as your love for each other.

Lee takes on the everyday tasks of running the ranch, guiding hunts, and anything in between that needs to be done, he’s my man!

I, on the other hand, have the pleasure of working closely with the bride and groom to aid in keeping your day running as smoothly as possible. When I’m not at the venue, I keep up with our daughters, Evie and Lillie, our four dogs, cows, chickens, and goats!

The ranch has been a hunting venue for around 15 years. It started with my grandparents having the lodge as a place for the family to gather, hunt, and enjoy each other’s company. In 2015, we had the dream for other families to be able to create once in a lifetime memories there as well. My mom and dad, Charlie and Cindy Mancuso, had the wonderful idea of the wedding venue, so as a family we worked day in and day out to ensure it is the perfect place for your wedding. And with that, Bright Star Ranch was born!
