If I could give LTM 10 stars, I would

It's difficult for me to categorize LTM as a “venue” because it truly is an overall experience. They have perfected the wedding weekend idea. It was so fun/convenient to have our closest family and friends hang out at a single location for the whole weekend (from Rehearsal Dinner to Sunday Breakfast). Huge plus - the Cottage House has an onsite spa where all of the bridesmaids get ready; no need to worry about transporting people early in the morning for hair/makeup.

Aesthetically, the Manor is STUNNING, elegant, yet has such a cozy and warm feel from the dark wood-paneled walls and the fireplaces. The ceremony and outdoor spaces are beautifully landscaped and covered in cabanas, lounge furniture, fire pits, and yard games. The Cottage House is so well-decorated in a neutral palette; perfect for getting ready photos.

But aside from the location itself, the true magic is the team that runs the operation. I was an out-of-state bride and the LTM team made the planning process so simple and easy and the wedding day went by seamlessly. Everyone that works there (the owners, the coordinators, the waitstaff, the bartenders, etc.) is accommodating, attentive and they take the utmost care of their couples and families from the initial meeting to check-out on Sunday. They treated us like family and made the Manor feel like our home for the weekend, which is truly unique from a standard wedding venue. The staff goes above and beyond on EVERY DETAIL and they are proactive to help…e.g., Janice printed a last minute menu customization for one of our guests; My MOH’s dress strap broke as we were heading to the ceremony, and within a matter of seconds, Janice sewed it back on; Jackie went above and beyond and helped one of the bridesmaids get to the airport (because her ride had fallen through) the day we were all checking out…the list goes on. Know that if you book LTM, nothing will go wrong…seriously. They are wedding experts, they have seen it all and they know their venue inside and out. I truly believe that there isn’t a problem that could not be fixed on the fly.

Andrew makes the planning process easy and clear to understand. If you like whiskey, add the whiskey tasting bar! Andrew hosts it and it was the most professional whiskey tasting set-up I have ever seen. A huge hit with our guests!

Jackie has such a creative eye. She put together the most stunning florals and decor and provided so much guidance during planning process. I knew I could trust her to bring my vision to life.

Janice and Ted are masters at the weekend coordination and are just the most kind, caring people that you would want to have by your side on your wedding day. As a bride, I felt so secure knowing that Janice and Ted would tell us where we needed to be and when; everything was on schedule.

Chef Mike’s food is hands-down incredible and he serves plenty of amazing options that our guests loved. All of the weekend meals were so memorable. Chef Mike was extremely easy to work with on any customizations we requested and takes food allergies/dietary restrictions very seriously. Regarding the bar/drink options - amazing. If you love espresso martinis, you will love LTM’s bartenders :)

If you are considering LTM, take a tour; you will not be disappointed. Pictures do not do it justice and you have to meet the team to really understand what makes this place so special. My only wish is that we could have stayed longer.

The Wedding of my Dreams

Where do I begin? The whole LTM team made sure my entire wedding wknd was not only stress free, but also a perfect depiction of a vision I had in my head of what my wedding would be like. To say I am thankful for this is an understatement. We spend years dreaming of our wedding, imagining what it will look like, asking for things we aren't sure are achievable. I had about 1,000 of these details in my head, and LTM did NOT miss a single mark. It was unbelievable and I am quite literally in shock one month later. From the stunning decor, to the magnificent food- the wknd was one no one will never forget. From the moment we pulled up to the manor for our 1st tour appt with Andrew, I knew we had found the venue of our dreams. Furthermore after walking in the front door, you immediately pick up an energy that I had never felt anywhere else. It was warm, cozy, familiar, and it felt like home. I wanted everyone I knew to see this spectacular hidden gem of the earth we had found. Andrew was so thorough & concise and just knows everything there is to know about how to host the perfect wedding. Then the ever so talented Jackie, the photos of her work online had my jaw on the ground, I was so excited to finally meet her. Her extensive and impressive collection of dinnerware, decor, linens, and more can give anyone a beautiful event. The cottage, which is a space you can only dream you will be lucky enough to get ready in on your wedding day- is managed by Janice, I remember talking to her on my tour about everything to expect the wknd, how the morning of getting ready would go, and heard her devotion to making her brides happy. She brought me to tears that day already knowing we would become super close and feeling relieved to know I would have her by my side from day 1. Ted, is also fantastic- his smile lights up the room. He has the voice of an angel and a heart of gold. I could never imagine the wedding planning process to be so fun seeing what some of my friends had gone through. I would talk with the team all the time, we really built a lovely friendship throughout the process. Jackie and Janice were always VERY on top of my details and plans. Whatever advice or crazy requests I had they were there to help me figure out. Before I knew it, it was 1 year into the planning process and time for our tasting! They went above and beyond we had the best day seeing our table decor for the first time which was PERFECTION! It was an exact replica of all of the inspo photos I had shared before, so unique. The tasing was the first time we met Chef Mike, but we had been talking for weeks prior about a bunch of crazy requests I had for my wedding weekend- which you wont be surprised to read were ALL executed beyond perfection once again on the weekend. This consisted of a live hand piped cannoli and Napoleon bar, a live hot pasta chafing station, an Italian inspired interactive charcuterie table, a potato latke station, a NY bagel bar, and more!!! Mike and his team absolutely killed it and ALL of my guests said it was BY FAR the best event food they had ever had. Moving into decor and florals, I loved how the manor had different vibes depending which part of the property you were in, and I wanted to capture that mysterious excitement for my guests with how I decorated each space. My inspo for the rehearsal was Positano Romance, and Jackie literally transposed the Amalfi Coast into the outdoor area of the manor. MULTIPLE guests came up to us to tell us the felt like they were in Italy, it was spectacular, quite literally amazing. The side garden felt like a fairytale to me, my Inspo for this space was Alice in Wonderland, low and behold once again the mark was hit! In the dining rooms I wanted romance and elegance, guess what? CHECK! Candles everywhere, soft florals, you could feel the love no matter which dining room you walked into. The party turned up after dinner and we danced past 12am! Brunch sunday was the perfect send off and it was hard to leave, but it was see you later, not goodbye for me and this group! We will be back!!!

Thank You Lord Thompson Manor!

Back in 2021, we came to view Lord Thompson Manor as our first wedding venue. Afterwards, we only went to one other venue, and decided that there were no more that we wanted to go see. Lord Thompson Manor was the one for us. We loved the uniqueness of Lord Thompson Manor, because we are not ballroom people! We are thrilled with our decision and wish we could relive the weekend over and over. Everything was absolutely perfect. Everyone within the Lord Thompson Manor staff was so accommodating and beyond caring and kind. The staff truly made us feel like we were family. It was so hard to leave on that Sunday! The attention to detail was immaculate and hasn't gone unnoticed. Many friends and family members have taken the time to reach out to us and our parents letting us know how Lord Thompson Manor was the most beautiful venue and how it was the best wedding they have ever been to. Jackie will take your vision, and make it a reality. Ted and Janice will make you feel like family and will make sure that everyone is okay and has everything they need. Andrew will answer any and all questions you have, and takes the time to explain everything you need to know. What a spectacular venue! Thank you again so much to everyone at Lord Thompson Manor! We are forever grateful for the amount of work and care you put into every single wedding that you have there. Thank you so much!

I love Lord Thompson Manor so much..I got married there myself! I am a wedding photographer and seriously folks, Jackie & her staff are playing on a whole different level when it comes to wedding day details. I've seen everything, photographed everywhere. They are second to NONE. You will never want to leave the place.

At The Lord Thompson Manor, the staff, the service, the setting itself all work in harmony to create the kind of wedding couples dream of. I had the honor to officiate for a couple married there last year and will officiate again for another couple soon. As delighted as I am, I can just imagine how thrilled couples are to know they can trust the details of their special day to the owners of such a competent and caring venue.
