by Juliette McKay | Blush, Color Inspiration, Gold, Ivory, Latest Weddings, Real Weddings | 0 comments We are absolutely in love with Carissa and Ryan’s Lord Thompson Manor wedding. Nestled in the sleepy northeast corner of Connecticut, the historical Lord Thompson Manor was the ideal backdrop to Carissa and Ryan’s wedding day, and the perfect match to their classically elegant eye for fashion. From the light and airy cottage house, to the dark woods of the manor’s billiards room – it seamlessly complimented Carissa’s delicate grace and Ryan’s dapper charm. Every detail of this wedding was flawless, from Carissa’s gown to the napkin...

James & Julie’s Lord Thompson Manor wedding was a beautiful day that was a bit different than most weddings we shoot. It was unique because while the couple is high school sweethearts and are HEAD OVER HEALS in love with each other, they both wanted their day to be less about them and more about their friends and family. This made the entire day, and celebration, certainly one to remember! Sometimes we find that couples want the day to be focused mainly on them and what’s surrounding them. James and Julie...

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...
