Wedding at Lord Thompson Manor

Our most recent event at Sprout was a fabulous wedding at the Lord Thompson Manor in Connecticut. The photos on the Manor’s web site really don’t do it justice. It’s a stunning venue in a “mini Newport Mansion” kind of way.

There are 5 dining rooms each with a slightly different, but neutral color scheme – cream, gold, eggplant…the rooms open one into another just enough to have a connection to the other guests while allowing for really intimate dining.

The wedding was in apple greens and bright pinks, sorely needed color on what turned out to be a very gray and misty July day. We used fabulous peonies as the main flower with roses, sweet peas, garden roses, lime green poms, ladies’ mantle, freesia, and stock.

Our favorite touches were the ring bearer pillow and flower girl basket which were fashioned out of bright green “Anthos” chrysanthemums. It was a treat to make something special for the littlest members of the wedding party!

John Lenis, the photographer, promised us a link to his photos when they’re ready, but until then I hope our snapshots will do!

Stunnin! LOVE the flower girl basket... I may need to borrow that idea for inspiration in Maryland.
