Rosecliff Mansion, Diana + Faris

Diana and Faris were married on May 27, 2017. The ceremony took place at St Spyridon Greek Orthodox Church and the reception at Rosecliff Mansion in Newport, RI.

I worked with photographer Alexandra Jarige of Jarige Photography.

Rosecliff is an extraordinary venue for a wedding and one of Newport's most lavish mansions. It was commissioned by Nevada silver heiress Theresa Fair Oelrichs in 1899, architect Stanford White modeled Rosecliff after the Grand Trianon, the garden retreat of French kings at Versailles. After the house was completed in 1902, at a reported cost of $2.5 million, Mrs. Oelrichs hosted fabulous entertainments here, including a fairy tale dinner and a party featuring famed magician Harry Houdini.
