Olivia and Zach’s Rosecliff Mansion Wedding
Olivia and Zach’s wedding was a true fairytale. The bride’s Ines Di Santo gown with a massive train stole the show, and rightly so! Her grand entrance to one of the nations oldest churches, Trinity Church, was just the beginning of the night’s bold statement. The reception was held at Rosecliff Mansion, a 1920’s white stone mansion on the famed Bellevue Avenue. It was a true party with 200 people dancing the night away. The day’s huge thunderstorm only served to make the mansion feel cozy and romantic, all lit up with candles and filled with white roses as captured by photographer Benedicte Verley Photography. The night winded down with sparkling gold fireworks overlooking the ocean out on the back lawn, a festive way to finish a joyous evening!
