Dear Jackie, Andrew, Ted, Mike and everyone at the LTM,

We and our friends and family are still floating on air from our recent weekend wedding extravaganza. As a same sex couple, we were not sure how such a highly regarded wedding venue as LTM would welcome us. From the moment we first stepped through the door, we immediately felt part of the Manor family, a feeling which only grew through the planning process with you, the wedding itself, and now afterwards. We miss you!

On multiple occasions during our wedding weekend, Andrew asked us if you were able to meet our expectations. Our answer in each instance was the same, “You far exceeded anything we could have imagined.” Our friends and family cannot stop talking about how amazing everything was from the rehearsal dinner, to the breakfast on Saturday, the wedding ceremony, cocktail hour, the after-party and Sunday brunch. Repeatedly, we heard comments such as, “The food was incredible,” “What a beautiful place,” “You guys thought of everything!!!” and “That was the most amazing wedding EVER!!!” not to mention “I need more of that BBQ brisket!” from the rehearsal dinner

None of this could have been possible without the creativity and vision of Jackie, Chef Mike and Ted, as well as the patience of Andrew in keeping everything in order. You really did attend to every detail from providing wonderful Pashminas for our female guests, saving hors d’oeuvres for us to sample, to Ted bringing us sushi during the post-ceremony photos…. the list goes on and on!!!

Of all the compliments our guests had, the most frequently offered both during and after the wedding weekend were regarding the incredible flowers. Jackie and Ted literally blew the roof off with the flowers. Why anyone would use an outside florist is beyond comprehension! We will always recall vividly the multiple creative and beautiful arrangements which adorned the Manor.

We had heard what a challenging and unpleasant process planning a wedding could be. However, working with Jackie as our wedding planner and with Andrew as our finance man, we felt secure and confident from start to finish. Thank you for that.

Most people imagine that their wedding will be the most beautiful, incredible experience of their lives. We are fortunate to say that because of all of you, our wedding truly was. We only wish we could do it all over again – but we would not change a thing.

Thanks again and we hope to see you again soon.

Neal and Andrew
