An NRI couple residing in America - Amit Shah and Aditya Madiraju tied the knot in a traditional ceremony at BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir, Robbinsville in New Jersey America. The wedding was not only stylish but it made everyone sit up and take notice
The grooms twinned on their big day. Amit Shah wore Abhivira Kurta set by Anita Dongre, Aditya opted for the Amartya Kurta set by the same designer. The duo complimented their look with multiple layered ruby necklace.
In an Instagram post, Shah said, "Thank you to everyone who took the time out to congratulate Aditya and I over the last few days. We are unable to respond to each and every message, but we are very grateful for your support. As we fall back into our routine life, it is important to remember that any conversation about same-sex marriage is healthy (whether you agree with the views of others or not.)" (sic)
Shah added, "To open up someone's mind about something they know nothing about takes time and patience. Anger and frustration is never the way to build awareness. Give those uninformed a chance to learn and realise that LOVE is more powerful than any race, religion, gender, or preference. Keep the conversation open." (sic)
Aditya Madiraju said on his Instagram post, "During our 1st year of dating we took a personality test. We turned out polar opposite in our choices. But one choice we both wanted to make is freedom to express our love."
Aditya Madiraju said, "Thank you everyone who took time out to congratulate us. We are unable to respond to each and every message but are very grateful for the support system we have witnessed. As we fall back into our routine life it is important to remember that the right to equality and freedom of expression is a given. No one should be mistreated because they have taken a different route than yours. Humanity and love over hatred."
