Ami Pathak & Rutul Davé on May 18, 2019

By Tracie Seed | Newport Wedding 2020

The love story of Ami Pathak, of Cleveland, Ohio, and Rutul Davé, of Baroda, Gujarat, India, began before they were born. According to the tale’s long version, the groom’s uncle and the bride’s father were friends in their 20s, so the couple met several times while they were growing up until, finally, sparks flew. The short version? Ami’s sister Nisha claims the role of Cupid, because she set up a dinner that led to a love match. The couple got engaged in a lavender field in Provence, and tied the knot in Newport. 

“We chose the Newport Beach House because of its warmth, elegance, and the chance for our guests to party on the beach!”

And the Couple Wore …

Rutul’s custom outfit, called a Lucknowi Kurta, and Ami’s bridal Lengha, were purchased in New Delhi. Her handcrafted ivory gown was fashioned from raw silk and detailed with hand-sewn mirrors. In memory of his late father, Rutul wore his dad’s favorite Jodhpuri suit at the reception.

Coffee, Tea or Champagne

The celebration’s soothing palette was dominated by blush, champagne gold and pistachio green. Ami’s obsession with tea and Rutul’s deep affection for coffee prompted the gifts for their wedding guests: Harney & Sons Rose-Scented Black Tea and Nicaragua Gold Mountain Coffee from Brooklyn Roasting Company.

Put on Your Dancing Shoes

Ami has coordinated several large-group wedding dances for her family and friends. “When it came to the dances for our own wedding, we didn’t know what to expect, because I handed over the reins to my cousins,” says the bride. “We were treated to multiple group dances. It was one of our most cherished memories of the day!”

Where Are They Now?

After spending some time in Greece, where they visited Santorini, Mykonos, Crete and Athens, the couple returned to their apartment in Brooklyn, where Ami works as an attorney and Rutul as the co-founder and CTO of Maxwell Financial Labs, Inc.
