Shades of Pink at Lord Thompson Manor

By: Jessica Robinson

Here's a sneak preview of today's pretty wedding.  The setting: Lord Thompson Manor, Thompson, Connecticut.  Set away from the fuss of the everyday world, it's tucked back on a wonderfully manicured property.  Wind down their gravel driveway into a picturesque and just lovely setting.

What sets Lord Thompson Manor aside from other venues is the weekend wedding idea.  When you reserve their facility, you become pampered for the entire weekend.  Not rushed out the door for the next wedding to take over!
We used a combination of hot lady, cool water, Anna and Faith roses for the entire wedding.  The bride carried a lush hand tied bouquet of white cymbidium orchids with pink throats and ivory garden roses.  I adorned the stems with ivory satin French knots... so pretty!
Jackie, from Lord Thompson Manor will create one of a kind menu cards.  Each of which is personalized with all of your guests names.  A really wonderful personalization.  The manor has a real working fireplace, perfect for that New England autumn or winter wedding.  The smell of real wood burning in a fireplace just gets me.  It makes you feel warm and cozy. 

Enjoy breakfast on their patio or in the sun room and enjoy the company of great friends and family.  Everything in life is so rushed these days, it's nice to take the entire weekend to embrace your wedding.  The details are wonderful for this wedding.  Lord Thompson Manor set up a delicious candy station for the couple with most pink and red candies.  Candles are everywhere which adds so much romance and ambiance.
Of course, these are just a few images I took... dying to see what the fabulous Alissa Dinneen took!


  1. Everything looks beautiful, Jessie! I love the braided ribbon up the bouquet of flowers. I also love the centerpieces that you have on the table. The short glass stand with the strands of crystals are beautiful. What a beautiful wedding! Great job!!

  2. thanks Christina, For you we can wrap your bouquet with a sparkly copper chocolate color ribbon and twist French Knots up the stems with another color. Details are SO important!

  3. That sounds beautiful!! The details are amazing!! I love the orchids in the vase too. Everything about weddings are just gorgeous!
