I told you Monday was going to be jam-packed with posts! So let’s continue the mega madness with Part I of Jen & Adam’s absolutely spectacular Lord Thompson Manor wedding. Jen & Adam were married on a day where the light was airy, the color was dreamy, and nothing, not even the rain itself, dared interfere with its perfection. It was a day where boy meets girl turned into here and ever after. And we were just the ones lucky enough to winess it.
Married: Jen & Adam
I was a little bit obsessed with Jen’s shoes. Just a little.
And a little more….
And a little more. :) Her drop dead gorgeous gown from The White Dress by the Shore was pretty swoon-worthy too!
Jen got ready at the Spa on site at the Spa at Lord Thompson Manor, which made the whole day so much more relaxing. And the light/backdrop of the spa made for some gorgeous shots!
** J&M Brides Hint: Have the getting ready, ceremony and reception all at one place if you can or at least very close together. Major extra bonus points if the groom gets ready at the same place as you. It makes it SO much easier for us to cover both sides of the getting ready.
Since Jen & Adam did just that, Justin was able to sneak over to Lord Thompson Manor and hang out with the guys and also scout out the ceremony details before the guests arrived.
You can’t go wrong with a classic bow tie.
Adam’s dad looks like a Hollywood Star to me. A lil’ Bogart perhaps.
Adam you are dashing!
And it’s clear where you get it!
While Justin was with the fellas, Julia & I hung out with Jen and her ladies for some finishing touches.
LOVE that rosette belt!
Jen you are everything that is timeless and beautiful. I adore you!
When Jen’s dad came in to see her, it got a lil’ emotional…
…oh yea, Jen got a little teary too. :)
The Lord Thompson Manor has the most BEAUTIFUL grounds for an outdoor ceremony. Love it there!
Adam surprised Jen with a pretty cool ride from the spa to the ceremony!
Now, here’s where it gets really interesting. All morning the dark clouds were looming in the sky threatening to ruin the outdoor ceremony plans. Just as Adam and his dad went down the aisle and Jen was getting out of the car, it started to rain. Guests started throwing coats over their heads….none of us was sure what was going to happen…..
But Jen was getting married. So she got out of the car anyway and started down the aisle. And the rain was coming down with no end in sight.
But just as Jen and her parents started down the aisle, they literally crossed out of rain and into incredible sunshine.
And it didn’t rain the rest of the ceremony or for any of the pictures. It was only once we all were inside safe and sound, that the sky opened up and poured for hours. Now how about that for a good forecast!? :)
LOVE this shot that Julia grabbed of Adam’s face. It says it all.
LOVE that face!
Mr. & Mrs!!
Right after Jen & Adam came back down the aisle, everyone gathered on the grounds for a couple of welcome toasts.
Another Julia shot! She is rockin the house! Love this one!
When Jen’s mom started her toast, I’m not sure there was a dry eye in the place.
