Meet Brianna Downey, Venue Manager at Collins Place Venue

I’m the venue manager here at Collins Place Venue. I’m so excited to welcome you to our property and help create an experience catered to the unique needs for your event or celebration.

I’m a Florida girl with New York roots who loves people and hearing their stories. I love telling stories through managing and planning events. I feel this gives us the beautiful opportunity to share our life experiences with one another.

I’m passionate about a strong cup of coffee, having ‘Friends’ on repeat, rejoicing with a spontaneous dance party, and spending time with my pup, Theo. Being outdoors in creation is a breath of fresh air for me and is such a fun way to experience new adventures.

While you are here, we want this to be a luxury experience for you, whether you’re planning a wedding, a celebration, or a corporate event. We want you to feel at home and well cared for during this time. I can’t wait to connect with you and celebrate you with class and grace.

Meet Austin Britt, Operations Manager at Collins Place Venue

I am the venue operations manager here at Collins Place Venue. I’m looking forward to working with you to make sure your event or celebration is exactly what you envisioned.

My wife Savannah and I moved to Cairo, GA from central Florida where I managed properties and events for the same family who founded Collins Place. We currently live on the property with our fur babies Miss May the GSP and Tux the “barn kitty”. During my downtime you could find me in my wood shop building something, going to downtown Thomasville for good food and coffee or hiking a trail with Savannah and Miss May enjoying nature at its best!

As the venue operations manager, I am here to make sure everything is ready for your celebration or event inside and out! We are excited to help you have the day you dreamed about or the event that matters the most to you!
