Dance choreographer Amit, who is 32, and his husband Aditya, who is 31 and works in risk management, are both practicing Hindus. Tradition is very important to them. That’s why after dating for a few years, they filled out the paperwork for a civil union in New York City at the start of 2019, and then also decided to have a traditional ceremony in New Jersey on July 19. The pair wore striking kurtas by designer Anita Dongre during the actual wedding ceremony.

“We didn’t realize the impact a simple wedding at a temple would have on people around the world looking for hope,” Amit and Aditya wrote on Instagram. Aditya told Irish News that “Having a traditional wedding is something that wasn’t out of the ordinary for either of us as we come from pretty traditional and conservative backgrounds.”

Meanwhile, Amit explained to Vogue India that the couple first 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,” Amit told the media. He also revealed that the pair ‘came out’ to their parents after dating for a year, and were rewarded with lots of support.
