Sam and Dan’s Wedding Day-Thompson CT, Sacred Heart Church, Raceway Restaurant and Golf Club

Sam and Dan were married today in Thompson under beautiful skies and surrounded by lving family and friends. The day was marked by a surprise proclamation by Govenor Rell marking their day as Mr and Mrs Daniel Gilbert Day in Connecticut!
They were married at Sacred Heart Church, also known as the Dam Church behind the Thompson Dam, and will be the last wedding performed there before its’ closing

In the meantime, I was watching Sam as she walked down the aisle–and Dan’s expression was memorable.sam-and-dan-151343

The Raceway restaurant as always provided excellent service and delicious food, and was wonderfully decorated by Dan’s family with green grasses planted months ago for the occasion. The true ‘green wedding’!



Many thanks to the Gilberts and Jacksons for welcoming us into your family for the day.
