We celebrated our daughter's wedding at the Lord Thompson Manor this past weekend and the entire experience was magical. Our daughter had wanted to do a 'destination' wedding but we had too many family and friends and elderly people that could not travel a long distance. LTM was the perfect place. We live in CT and our daughter lives in DE. LTM was close enough for people to make it a day trip but in a perfect location to make a weekend getaway if they desired. The staff took care of every detail and made planning this event a pleasure. Unfortunately, just before the ceremony was about to begin, the weather took a turn for the worse with rain marching across the state. The staff quickly and efficiently moved everything inside and kept our daughter calm and happy. The rain did let up enough to enjoy the patio and fireplaces after the ceremony. Every detail was wonderful. The staff was professional and pleasant. Food was equal to any 5-star restaurant around. Every single detail was attended to effortlessly. I would highly recommend this venue for a stress free, exquisite event.

It has been about 2.5 months since our wedding at LTM, and word cannot describe how incredible our wedding weekend was. Jackie, Andrew, and the rest of their staff really go above and beyond to make it an amazing production. Everything you can think of is taken care of and carefully planned. A special shout out to Kate and Ted, who helpful put everything together and handle anything that came up. If you are looking for a once in a lifetime experience with your family and friends, my bride and I highly highly highly recommend Lord Thompson Manor.

Our 10/11/15 Wedding Day was PERFECT! The price was very reasonable given that we had a Sunday wedding. We booked the venue almost a year prior and by the time it came to having to plan details with the LTM i was kind of spent, and this is where the LTM team excels. Jackie and Andrew (owners) were incredible. Jackie handled the flowers/decor; when it came time to make decisions I had run out of steam and gave Jackie free reign...she nailed it. I'm still getting compliments about how beautiful everything looked. Andrew was incredibly helpful throughout the entire process answering questions re-sending invoices he was just fantastic to work with. The Manor is special because of the team that supports you. Ted (all around coordinator), Danielle and Kate (personal wedding day coordinators), Priscilla (hair and Makeup), Mike (chef). We lucked out and had all of the aforementioned team at our wedding. This is what makes LTM truly special, they have been in business for about 20 years (give or take) and they have weddings down to a science. Our day was flawless and it went off without a hitch. All we have been hearing from guests both day of and since is that it is the most beautiful wedding they have ever been to, even one of my bridesmaids (whose wedding was far more expensive) said "I hate to say this but your wedding was nicer than mine". We also have not stopped hearing about the food, which was truly out of this world. Chef Mike is truly gifted. My only regret is that we can't get married every year because although we only spent one day with the LTM team they have made an impression on us that will last forever.

Andrew and Jackie, the owners of the amazing Lord Thompson Manor, truly outdid themselves with our wedding this past weekend. We are forever grateful to them for creating and aiding in the planning of such an amazing, outstanding and beautiful rehearsal dinner, ceremony, reception and brunch--truly the wedding weekend of our dreams! Jackie handled the flowers, decor and gave expert coordination during the day and Andrew handled the finances and any and all questions we had. The Manor employs truly the best people of all time--Ted was amazing at anticipating our needs on Saturday and Kate at the Cottage House was so fantastic my bridesmaids and I all decided that we "need our own Kates" in our lives. AMAZING. We are so happy and thrilled with everything at Lord Thompson Manor and will not hesitate to recommend to everyone we know! Thank you thank you thank you all!!!! Love, Caroline & James

It's been almost 3 weeks since our wedding and we still haven't fully processed just how amazing Lord Thompson and their staff was. Every time we think about the weekend, we remember new details of how great they were. Jackie did our flowers and decor and she just knocked it out of the park- my flowers were exactly what I wanted, she goes to such an extreme with the details its amazing (an example of this- they spent time "blowing out" some of the flowers to make them look more open and larger since I really liked a variety of bloom sizes, I had never even heard of this!) She put so much thought into every detail and it truly made the day infinitely more special (she bought a canvas LOVE print to display at the wedding that reminded her of my invitation and then let me keep it after the wedding!). Andrew handles the finances and also ran our scotch and cigar bar which was a HUGE hit. He was wonderful to work with and made sure we felt comfortable with every expense. Chef Mike is so talented, the food he created for our menu was unbelievable. Unlike other venues, LTM encouraged you to customize the dining experience with food you love and Mike will make it better than you ever imagined. Kate, the host at the Cottage House (their sister property where my bridesmaids and I stayed and got ready) was so wonderful and helped coordinate every detail to make our stay easy and enjoyable. Ted, the host at the Manor was unreal- he constantly checked in with us throughout the night and made sure everything we wanted was taken care of. He even sang to me as we were headed to the ceremony to help relieve any pre-ceremony jitters. The only bad part of the weekend was leaving, we were so sad it was over and didn't want to say bye to the wonderful staff. We truly hope friends of ours use Lord Thompson Manor for their weddings in the future so we can continue to come back to this magical place again and again.

All of the vendors we had for our wedding were 5/5s, wonderful, everything we could have asked. Still, Lord Thompson Manor was head and shoulders above all of them and really made our wedding weekend a dream come true. Jackie and Andrew were extremely helpful along the way in our wedding planning (and for those of you thinking of LTM, you don't need a wedding planner, these two tell you everything you need to know, and they, along with the staff, take care of everything on wedding weekend and wedding day). They were extremely flexible, and while we took some of their suggestions, we also had plenty of our own ideas which Jackie, Andrew, Ted, Chef Mike, and the entire LTM staff worked tirelessly to make sure all of our desires were realized. Jackie put together all of the flowers for our wedding, which were even more beautiful than we hoped, and when we arrived the Thursday before the wedding, Ted served as our host for the weekend and was unbelievable. He made sure every one of our guests, those staying at LTM and the Cottages, or not, had everything they needed, and whenever we needed something he was right there for us, getting water, helping with sports equipment for us to use, even singing songs. From our perspective, we wanted the wedding weekend to just be a weekend of fun, happy times with the people closest to us, and thanks to Lord Thompson Manor's accomodations, grounds, and incredible service, we got everything we could have ever hoped for our wedding.

At the Lord Thompson Manor, Jackie, Andrew and their incredible staff created the most memorable, magical day we could have ever hoped for. Their attention to detail and natural skill at pulling of a wedding is incredible. They did everything imaginable to make sure the day was perfect. Through the whole thing, they were calm, patient, and responsive-- a true joy to work with. And you couldn't pick a more beautiful, elegant place for a wedding. I would HIGHLY recommend the Lord Thompson Manor to anyone.

We and our friends and family are still floating on air from our recent weekend wedding extravaganza at the Lord Thompson Manor. As a same sex couple, we were not sure how such a highly regarded wedding venue as LTM would welcome us. From the moment we first stepped through the door, we immediately felt part of the Manor family, a feeling which only grew through the planning process, the wedding itself, and even afterwards. On multiple occasions during our wedding weekend, Andrew (one of the owners) asked us if they were able to meet our expectations. Our answer in each instance was the same, "You far exceeded anything we could have imagined." Our friends and family cannot stop talking about how amazing everything was from the rehearsal dinner, to the breakfast on Saturday, the wedding ceremony, cocktail hour, the after-party and Sunday brunch. Repeatedly, we heard comments such as, "The food was incredible," "What a beautiful place," "You guys thought of everything!!!" and "That was the most amazing wedding EVER!!!" not to mention “I need more of that BBQ brisket!” from the rehearsal dinner None of this could have been possible without the creativity and vision of Jackie, Chef Mike and Ted, as well as the patience of Andrew in keeping everything in order. They attended to every detail from providing wonderful Pashminas for our female guests, saving hors d'oeuvres for us to sample, to Ted bringing us sushi during the post-ceremony photos.... the list goes on and on!!! Of all the compliments our guests had, the most frequently offered both during and after the wedding weekend were regarding the incredible flowers. Jackie and Ted literally blew the roof off with the flowers. Why anyone would use an outside florist is beyond comprehension! We will always recall vividly the multiple creative and beautiful arrangements which adorned the Manor. We had heard what a challenging and unpleasant process planning a wedding could be. However, working with Jackie as our wedding planner and with Andrew as our finance man, we felt secure and confident from start to finish. Most people imagine that their wedding will be the most beautiful, incredible experience of their lives. We are fortunate to say that because of everyone associated with the Manor, our wedding truly was. We only wish we could do it all over again – but we would not change a thing. Anyone who is looking to get married in Connecticut should RUN to the Lord Thompson Manor. In addition to being an absolutely breath-taking location, the food, service, flowers (you should use Jackie and Ted as your florists - they do truly amazing work and are VERY cost effective), and wedding planning, they make planing a wedding so easy and enjoyable. You will not regret anything!

There is no superior venue to the Manor. Your every need is addressed, before you even think of it, throughout your wedding weekend. My guests continue to rave about the event. The physical location, the food, and the staff are amazing and no other wedding venue can compare with the attention to detail. Your event is not one of several in a week so it's something they're planning for as much as you are.

They were absolutely amazing! Our wish was their command. They went so far above and beyond what we could have imagined - everything was absolutely perfect. As soon as you start to think that you want something, it's being handed to you. At 2am we were still sitting outside around the fire and we see Ted come out, thinking he's going to say that we need to pack it in, but instead, he brings us a huge bowl of popcorn. Not only that, but we forgot our cake top in the fridge when we left and Ted brought it to us over an hour away!
