After the Indian Supreme Court’s historic judgment to overrule Section 377, the country’s LGBTQ+ community has every reason to rejoice. So when this gorgeous wedding started making rounds, Instagram was quick to fall in love with these two grooms who proved that #LoveIsLove. Amit Shah and Aditya Madiraju, are a couple that became famous overnight with their gorgeous matching Anita Dongre sherwanis that the two wore to their Indian wedding ceremony in New York.

On July 19, this adorable couple decided to have an intimate traditional wedding with their close family and friends, and the pictures will leave you in awe of their love! Amit Shah, who owns the award-winning New York-based dance company, AATMA Performing Arts captioned his wedding pictures, “Love is meant to be celebrated” and we couldn’t agree more!
The couple also had a beautiful yet minimal Mehendi ceremony before they tied the knot, the highlight of which was the picture they clicked with their adorable pupper, Adam!
While talking to a magazine, Amit Shah shared their love story, “We met three years ago in a small lower east side bar for a friend’s birthday. Since that night, we have been together.” "Although we have completely different personalities, thanks to our similar interests we hit it off instantly. Aditya is very creative. For me, being in performing arts, that was very important. I desired a partner who is passionate." A year in the relationship, "we realised, we loved each other, and came out to our parents," he added.
The couple wrapped up their wedding ceremony with a sangeet of sorts held at Pondicheri NYC.
“We didn’t realize the impact a simple wedding at a temple would have on people around the world looking for hope. There is no secret to acceptance, tolerance, or happiness. You just have to find the right partner to take the step with. Let the truth of your love speak for itself. Love, Amit & Adi,” the couple shared this inspiring message on their Instagram accounts, proving that a simple wedding surrounded by people you love sends across a powerful message.
The Indian designer who dressed up the grooms for their wedding, Anita Dongre also shared their pictures on her Instagram account with the caption, “Dear Amit and Aditya, as you embark on this journey, building new lives together, we wish you all the love and happiness life has to offer. 💖” How sweet is that!
