Alia and Elliot

The stunning Monarch Beach Resort in Dana Point was the perfect setting in July for Alia and Elliot’s truly special wedding day. Alia and Elliott’s love story began when they met in Scotland, and this international couple knew immediately that their love would be traveling with them across the globe. With a great deal to celebrate after Alia passed the Bar Exam, this fairy tale would get the happily ever after it deserved. The Australian groom and Southern California bride shared their big day with an intimate gathering of family and friends at the Monarch Beach Resort’s whimsical Botanical Garden that truly captured the beauty of Alia and Elliott’s union.
