Boston Wedding Cinematography | Jess & Gio Same Day Edit Video, Lord Thompson Manor, Connecticut

September 22, 2015

Jess and Gio’s wedding day will go down as one of our favorites (plus it was at our favorite venue!). They spent all the right time on all the right details and to top it all off they were so fun, relaxed and easy going on their perfect day. Of course, Lord Thompson Manor and their incredible staff are top notch when it comes to putting the bride, groom and guests at ease for the entire wedding weekend.

The day started with some outdoor fun at the manor with the groomsmen while the ladies were enjoyed the spa. Jess and Gio decided on a first look which had all the right details including their closest families and friends looking on from the terrace. The bridal portraits with the manor as a stunning backdrop along with the giant balloons made for some epic shots. The ceremony is a serene area surrounded by the woods and the manor, tranquil and beautiful. The toasts following the ceremony were sentimental with a touch of humor, all you can ever hope for. Then the party started kicked off by the band Night Shift. They rocked out for the remainder of the evening keeping the dace floor packed and energetic. They broke briefly to let us play Jess and Gio’s same day edit and then it was back to the party. Like I said, it was an incredible day and we couldn’t be happier for Jess and Gio, congrats you two!
