Philadelphia Elopement : Saniya & Eric

Saniya and Eric married in a private elopement ceremony in Philadelphia. Although they couldn’t be there in person, many family and friends joined them via Zoom to watch them say I do!

From their photographer:

Saniya and Eric got married on a beautiful fall day with a touching ceremony where they read their own vows and exchanged rings. They chose The Philadelphia wedding chapel because they were looking for a venue that caters to small wedding and events that was located close to where they live and that was affordable – they found the perfect place! They met in New York City and still have family there, they were able to use Zoom to allow their loved ones to witness their promise to each other.

After their wedding ceremony, they headed to Atlantic City for their honeymoon – the beach in the fall can be so nice!

How they met

Saniya and Eric met in NYC at a birthday party at the bride’s cousin’s house. They dated for two years and they have a genuine and pure love for each other. They are best friends and keep each grounded.

How he Proposed

Eric proposed in a Cinnabon store(one of Saniya’s favorite treats!) and he put a ring in the Cinnabon box. She was surprised and delighted!
