Honestly, where do I even begin with Alyssa and Benson’s Rosewood Estate wedding. Rosewood Estate is possibly the nicest wedding venue on the whole of the Gold Coast. I mean seriously, the views are next level amazing. As you’ll see from the drone pics, the venue is set right on a narrow mountain ridge top with views pretty much any direction you look. I’d been waiting to a wedding at Rosewood for a while and with all this wet weather lately I’d been crossing my fingers for clear skies. And did the weather gods deliver finely.
Okay, enough of me frothing over the venue. What about Alyssa and Benson? They are the loveliest, sweetest couple. There are so many wonderful things I could say. But I might leave you with their get together story, because it’s just as lovely as they are.
Rosewood Estate Wedding Photography
Alyssa and Benson met on a Friday night in 2011 at the Bavarian Bier Cafe at Eagle St Pier. Ben was trying to make eye contact with Alyssa from across the room and Alyssa was doing her best to look everywhere other than at Ben. When Alyssa’s friends went to the bar and left Alyssa guarding the table, Ben pounced. We talked for over an hour and hit it off, before Ben announced that he was working the next day, it was nice meeting Alyssa and left without asking for her phone number. Luckily Hash (groomsman) had been out with Ben that night and approached, asking if Ben had done just that. Hash insisted that Ben did like Alyssa but would have been too shy to ask for her phone number and requested it to pass onto Ben. The first date was a week later, and was followed with a month worth of dates crammed into two weeks, before Alyssa flew to Thailand for a university internship. Three months later, Ben picked Alyssa up from the airport, and the rest is history…
To top if off, Benson proposed to Alyssa on top of Mount Tinbeerwah when they were waiting to watch the sunrise. Seriously, these two!
