Boyfriends Amit Shah and Aditya Madiraju tied the knot in a traditional Hindu wedding ceremony last week in New Jersey and it’s making front page news back in their home country.

People can’t stop talking about “the adorably fashionable twinning grooms” who wore matching pastel kurtas by designer Anita Dongre as they exchanged vows at the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir in New Jersey.

In an interview, Amit explained, “We wanted a proper Indian wedding. At a time when Aditya’s parents, who are based in India, were visiting us in America for the first time felt like the ideal date. It was all completely organic, we didn’t force anything. We are truly lucky to have parents who are so supportive.”

The wedding ceremony was followed by a Sangeet style cocktail party attended by the couple’s closest family members and friends. The newlyweds shared photos from the event on social media.

Afterwards, they took to Instagram to express their gratitude, writing: “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.”
