I was so amazed this weekend and last at the Lord Thompson Manor. We love the venue, but this was the first time we had been there for their wedding showcase. What an extraordinary event! Jackie brought everything together beautifully.

When the brides and grooms-to-be arrived with their families, they were shown to their table, where their personalized tasting menu awaited them.

Each table was decorated with a different theme and all of them were gorgeous.

Love the beach theme with shells and candles for this centerpiece.

I am such a fan of bright colors and especially love tropical flowers. Check out these orchids!

And something a bit more classical, various arrangements including calla lilies, roses, and candles, all in white.

She had her wonderful candy bar all set up, again all whites, a tribute to the winter season.

And the food and service, as always, were amazing. I love the pizzas and the mini-burgers.

Throughout the event, the wedding couples were serenaded with music by either the fabulous string quartet or the rocking band. They toured the grounds and had the opportunity to meet all of their wedding vendors. They could choose to talk with the florist, the fabulous cake designer, the ladies who created custom invitations, a videographer, a jeweler, an officiant, a tux shop, the folks from KISS Spa who will take care of hair and make-up and offer massages, and of course, wedding photographers.

An all around great day!
