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! Tell us about your beautiful venue. Our reception was at the Lord Thompson Manor in Thompson, Connecticut, a beautiful country estate. This venue...

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...

It was as though a few pages were torn from an old fairy tale storybook, and reenacted play by play. An old fair tale of strapping gentleman and lovely ladies, of class and elegance…but all woven together with a common theme of love and family. Hannah and Jake’s wedding at Lord Thompson Manor was everything we want every wedding to be – the bridal party was AMAZING to work with, their families were both humorous and easy going, each detail was meticulously thought through and planned, the venue staff was...

This summer has been a whirlwind of beautiful weddings and I’ve had such a great time being there to capture it all.  I’ve met so many wonderful families and been there to witness truly intimate and special moments.  I can’t wait to share some of them with you.  I first met Lauren and Brian in Boston for their fall engagement session.  We had a great time strolling around the city and did a TON of walking.  Only at the end of the evening did Brian mention that he’d run a marathon...

Just a few days after the birth of my 2nd son, Cole, I packed up my gear and headed out in the morning, so excited for Taylor and Darren’s wedding at the Lord Thompson Manor in Thompson, CT.  As is often the case in mid-September, the weather was perfect and I was very eager to explore the property and capture this beautiful day.  Taylor was glowing from the outset and her friends and family were so sweet and supportive.  I started out with the girls at the Inn and Salon...
