Shruti and I met at a happy hour during the AALS conference in January, 2011. We were introduced by Tax Prof Brian Galle. Shruti and I dated for the next year and a half while we were both living in Washington, DC. This past year we’ve been living on opposite coasts, but struggling with the distance has only helped to strengthen our relationship and our resolve to spend our lives together. We even co-authored a short paper, combining my interests in taxation with Shruti’s expertise in international and comparative business law. Our interfaith wedding ceremony was held at Stewart’s Cove Beach, in Carmel-by-the-Sea, CA, followed by a reception at a nearby hall. Our wedding was a small and intimate gathering of family and a few close friends. In attendance were Tax Prof Mark Gergen and tax lawyers Elizabeth Chien and Ameeta Patel.
