Elopement Wedding Highlights
Athena & Suruj's Wedding Story
Athena and Suruj met at UCSD 5 years ago, and are both scientists. Initially, it took a year and a half from the time they met for Suruj to gather the courage to share his feelings for Athena. When he finally did, he brought chocolates in hope that it would win her over, just in case she needed extra convincing 😉 To this day, he is not sure whether it is the chocolate or him that did the trick. But either way, it worked!Read More
Suruj is of Indian descent and his family plans on having a big wedding celebration in India with over a thousand people. COVID initially sparked the decision to have a smaller ceremony. But it quickly became a blessing in disguise, as they both wanted to share a more intimate moment together to celebrate their love.
The couple lives in La Jolla, and for their elopement, they chose a place that has special meaning: Scripps La Jolla. For Athena’s flower bouquet, at the elopement, the couple placed small chocolates in between the flowers. She said yes once again!
After the elopement celebration, Athena and Suruj shared that they loved working with our team. They especially enjoyed having Kristen officiate their wedding, as it was so meaningful and personalized specifically to them. Additionally, they mentioned how comfortable they felt, and how much fun they had with their photographer and videographer. It was a beautiful day and celebration all around!
