Creighton-Elizabeth Radcliffe Boggs and Avinash Yadav were united in marriage on Sunday, September 17, 2023, in San Clemente, California. The double ring ceremony was conducted by Pastor Joshua Kapchinsky in the garden overlooking the Pacific Ocean at San Clemente Shore. The bride’s wedding ring was designed to pair with her heirloom engagement ring, a gift from her mother, which had belonged to her mother’s great aunt, Susie Rodgers Theodore of Columbia, S.C. She wore a long strand of aquamarine stones, created by Sophie Koffler, originally worn by Katie Albert Bolton at her wedding to William Burnside Bolton, cousin of the bride.
Dinner and dancing followed the ceremony as the sun set over the coast. Attendees hailed from India and many states across the U.S. All guests received wedding favors of custom-designed stained-glass hearts created by Cindy Brantley Day of Blythewood, S.C., longtime friend of the bride’s mother.
Because her father’s health issues prevented his attendance at the wedding, the bride was given in marriage by her mother. She carried a charm containing a photograph of her father attached to her bridal bouquet as she processed. Heather Brehm of Pasadena, California, served as Maid of Honor. Bridesmaids were Stephanie Dieter of Los Angeles, California; Gale Haselden of Columbia, South Carolina; and Camila Conte of Richmond, Virginia.
