Ever been to a wedding where the guy stole the spotlight from the designer-lehenga-clad bride blushing through her 3 layers of makeup? Yeah, me neither. But there are two guys who can give any fashionista a run for their money any day. And of course, when it was their wedding day, they not only managed to be the ‘stars’ for their wedding guests, but also pulled off being the talk of the whole wide world and the whole world wide web. Meet NRIs Amit and Aditya, who when not giving us love goals through their lovey-dovey quotes on Instagram, set some real fashion goals for parties which make Netizens go crazy in no time.
In case you haven’t caught up on this latest Internet sensation, here’s your quick flash through their big fat non-residential Indian wedding. Amit Shah and Aditya Madirajua are a US-based couple who came to limelight when they tied the knot in New Jersey’s temple – BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir. They also got officially married in a civil ceremony earlier this year in January as well. But they wanted the colourful version too in the desi style. And since gay marriage is still not legal in India (what in the world!), the couple had to have it there. They had an awesome time there nonetheless.
Let’s Take a Peep into the World of Ensembles, Designers, and Shoes
It was not the case of a typical straight guy showing up for his wedding with an ensemble his mommy selected for his big day. It was the case of a gay couple who didn’t bail on the presentation factor at all and walked around inspiring us with their utter panache and aesthetics. Going with Anita Dogre as their designer, Amit stole the spotlight with his Abhivira Kurta while Aditya turned up the heat with his ethnic attire from Amartya. And that’s not all, they also donned multi-layered ruby necklaces over their white kurtas. I bet wedding designers took some cliff notes!
A cocktail celebration which looked so much like a Sangeet celebration followed later. And the couple strolled down again, dressed to kill. This time they went with darker shades for their wardrobes though. Both again chose the ethnic wear kurta, paired with a printed jacket in black and blue. Oh, and they nailed their shoe game as well. They opted for footwear from the reputed Christian Louboutin and danced around in all shimmer and glitter.
BTW it was not all about classy and dapper looks. It was actually about deep-deep love the couple is obviously in. The lovebirds took to Insta and pour their hearts out. Their post reads: “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.”
It’s not only beautiful, but it’s also an inspiring quote for all those who are struggling with love issues. This couple has really set an example, both for wedding planners and lovers. Kudos to them!
