Harshal Sanghvi married his longtime boyfriend Matt in a ceremony officiated by a friend in California.
Harshal wore a white Sherwani, and looked elated.
The two have been together for 13 years. This included a 10 month separation when Matt was pursuing a fellowship in Washington DC. They would both fly to and fro monthly to be together.
The wedding ceremony began with the invocation of Lord Ganesha, and parents of both Matt and Harshal offered flowers to the deity.
This was followed by Jayamala, where the grooms exchanged garlands according to Hindu tradition.
Then Harshal’s sister read out a poem by Rabindranath Tagore
And Matt’s sister read out a poem by George Elliot
Then they exchanged their vows
And exchanged rings and said “I Do”
And then the grooms kissed each other
And lived happily ever after. May God bless the couple
Now watch a video of their wedding below:
