So this one time, well, this past weekend to be exact, there was a wedding at what I believe is one of the very best venues in the state. The Lord Thompson Manor. It’s a place where the staff is so great, every single piece of the property is always… Well??? It’s just always perfect. Gosh. And the food… Gosh. I’ll be totally honest, it’s one of the few venues I will actually eat at. All I’m saying is that Lord Thompson Manor and any couple who is lucky enough...

This wedding at Lord Thompson Manor was just unreal. It’s really hard to describe this day… Amazing fall weather combined with gorgeous Bride and Groom, the setting at Lord Thompson Manor and the energy of the guests made it just perfect. We started with bride and groom prep, first look, some wedding pictures here and there, wonderful outdoor wedding ceremony, awesome speeches, and the day ended with everyone rocking out to Wilson Stevens Band. Loved everything about this day and we couldn’t be happier for Sunny and Michael. Cheers to...

Emily & Steve’s Elegant Lord Thompson Manor Wedding Emily and Steve got married on a manic (albeit gorgeous) weather day in October at the Lord Thompson Manor in Thompson Connecticut. There were storms scattered all around the area that day, and there were even brief moments of sunshine while the two said their “I do’s.” Emily was absolutely stunning in a simple dress, and Steve was totally at ease, it was like he’d been waiting all his life to marry Emily. They chose incredibly adorable details that went perfectly with the...

This wedding is definitely proof that when you pick a spectacular venue like the Lord Thompson Manor, the hard work is just about done for you. Isn’t this place incredible? This was a traditional, romantic celebration that was a perfect fit for the Manor itself – just like the bride’s cathedral length veil and tiara!  The only extra decorations required?  Florals in a pretty, fresh palette of white and peach.  See more below!

Raja & Christina’s Welcome Dinner was a special night of celebration. Family and friends came from all far and wide to celebrate their joy and love on this summer eve. Lord Thompson Manor’s impeccable staff served the al fresco meal while the wedding party toasted the upcoming nuptials of the Bride & Groom. It’s always a pleasure to document this night of festive anticipation before the wedding day begins. ...

Most of the time, I come into writing my posts with thoughts on how I can do the day justice, with some words and my photos. And while photos can say 1000 words, and my words, well…. The way I ramble on can be a few thousand words… I’m truly unsure I can do this wedding justice. It was, pretty much, perfect. There was a delay in the day when a transportation shuttle didn’t do any transporting but I guess there needed to be a slow down somewhere in the...

Every time we post a blog of Lord Thompson Manor, we fall in love all over again.  This truly is a magical place.  Jackie & Andrew (the owners) and Ted (your on-site personal attendant) are some of the most spectacular people we’ve ever met.   When Kat & Brian, who found LTM on our blog, reach out to say they had booked the Manor, we were ecstatic.  We knew it would be an epic collaboration.  Together, Kat & Brian are perfect for one another because he’s caring and easy going and she...

Brendan + Ryan were married this fall at Lord Thompson Manor, one of my very favorite places in Connecticut to work, of so many reasons. The way they treat everyone just makes me never feel like I am ‘working’ it feels more like a family all pulling together for our friends. Brendan + Ryan are also two of the most open and loving people, with such style and attention to detail it made my heart and eyes sing so loud! No detail was left out- and between these two lovelies...
