5.28.2011 – Ashley and Scott These two are adorable and we had just seen them the month before for their engagement session in NYC so shooting with them was still fresh and we all had a blast!  As a wordie, can I call myself that, like a foodie but with words, one of my favorite parts of their marriage is that Ashely only had to change one letter in her name to have his last name!  So fun! They are also super easy to photograph, totally in love, adorable together…that makes our...

You might remember Katie and Ben from the wintery engagement session we posted–we were beyond excited for their July wedding because it was happening with one of our favorite families at one of our favorite places!  I cannot say enough wonderful things about Lord Thompson Manor in Thompson, CT.  It is the perfect country estate for a whole weekend event where friends and family can stay and be together for more than just the wedding reception.  The gorgeous Cottage House, right up the street from the Manor is perfect for getting...

This is one of my absolute favorite places to photograph–if you want glamor and elegance and an all in one place affair with an all hands on deck staff who make the event perfect than a Lord Thompson Manor Wedding is the place for you.  The getting ready space is all white on white on white…which, I’ll be honest, is a photographer’s dream, and sometimes I find myself daydreaming of decorating my own house with all white floors, furniture, walls, linens, decorations, etc…anything you put in the space after that...

When Stefanie & Chris asked me to photograph their wedding, it felt like eons away. Both of them were studying to be doctors and they decided on a long engagement, focusing on their careers and putting in long hours at the hospital. So, I've been looking forward to capturing their wedding day for quite some time now and was over the moon about their gorgeous venue, the Lord Thompson Manor in Connecticut. I was so inspired by Stef's vision of deep hues, fruit on the table, and really cool objects like...

Bridget and Mike had the most flawless summer wedding at Lord Thompson Manor in Thompson, CT. The bridal prep was bright and white with touches of sparkles. The groom and groomsmen dressed in classic black and white tuxes. I absolutely love the combination of a stunning mansion but with a short walk beyond the ceremony space you’re walking in the woods (and a walk you could do in heels!) We got most of the portraits out of the way before the ceremony so everyone could enjoy the cocktail reception with Bridget...

Here is the second part of Lauren and Jason’s beautiful wedding day. (click here to see the first part.) Their wedding was held at Lord Thompson Manor and was just lovely! Every detail was perfection, but what really stood out to me was Jason and Lauren’s personalities. They are one of the most fun and truly happy couples. Lauren and Jason, you’re the best! Thank you for welcoming us like old friends and allowing us to capture your love. And your friends. And your family. And everything in between! Your...

Lauren and Jason are one of those couples who you can instantly make your heart happy! Their day was full of personal touches that reflected their fun personalities. They are the type of Bride and Groom that make us remember why we love our jobs so much! Thanks to all the amazing vendors who made the day so beautiful. It was such a pleasure to see this head-over-heels-in-love couple tie the knot! Venue: Lord Thompson Manor Dress + Veil: Paloma Blanca   Brides Shoes: Kate Spade  Purse: Davie and Chiyo – Etsy Hair and Makeup: Priscilla...

Kristine Vichiola (28 and a teacher) and PJ Cochrane (24 and works in account management) tied the knot in an elegant wedding in Connecticut. The couple originally met through the bride’s younger brother and other mutual friends. For the proposal, PJ surprised Kristine with a getaway weekend to Rhode Island where he popped the question on a cliff overlooking the ocean. “It was a dream come true!” says the bride. As soon as they visited Lord Thompson Manor and heard the venue’s concept of a “wedding weekend,” which includes a...
