Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra got married last weekend, and it looked like a real life fairytale. The couple celebrated their love during a lavish, four-day wedding in the actress’ home-country of India, and we’ve finally got all the deets on the party, the ceremony and most importantly, — the wedding dress!
It started with a traditional Mehendi ceremony on Nov. 30, which is an Indian wedding ritual that typically happens one or two days before the big day. Next was a Sangeet, in which both families performed elaborate musical numbers complete with choreography and costumes, which looked like so much fun. Um, who else is hoping that the three brothers hit the stage together for a mini JoBro reunion?
Then, on Saturday, Dec. 1, the bride and groom were married in a traditional Christian ceremony, where Priyanka donned a breathtaking, hand-beaded and embroidered Ralph Lauren gown with a stunning 75-foot long veil. Holy moly, that’s as tall as some skyscrapers! Nick wore a simple but gorgeous, black Ralph Lauren suit, and the couple looked truly stunning together. And guess who married the pair? Nick’s dad, Kevin Sr. Jonas, who’s actually a pastor!
“It was all tears. All tears,” the actress told People Magazine. “I could not hold it in. I think I was nervous and scared. But as soon as the curtains opened, and I saw his face it was just like everything settled and I knew I was making the best decision of my life.”
Our hearts are literally bursting. As for the former Jonas Brother, he was just as emotional.
“The emotions were running high during the ceremonies, I think especially during the Western wedding for me,” Nick added. “You know you think your whole life about that moment. Honestly, I could not have imagined it would be as perfect as it was. It was highly emotional.”
Ugh, they seriously could not be sweeter. After, the two exchanged vows again in a lavish Hindu wedding on Sunday, Dec. 2. For this ceremony, the 36-year-old literally shined in a gorgeous, sparkly, red sari, while Nick looked handsome in a traditional Indian outfit and turban. They concluded the weekend with a Bidaai, which is a bridal ritual where Priyanka’s family blessed her new life with the singer.
The wedding took place in a gorgeous Indian palace, which was fit for a princess — literally! It boasted 347 rooms and 26 acres of land and used to be home to the Indian Royal family, NBD.
“Every girl dreams of being a princess on her wedding day,” Priyanka told the magazine. “But I never had a plan about what I wanted it to be. It melted my heart. Being able to have two big weddings, in India, with our closest family and friends was unbelievably special.”
All of the couples’ close family members were indeed there, including Kevin Jonas and his wife Danielle, Joe Jonas and his fiancé Sophie Turner, their little bro Frankie, and of course the 26-year-old’s parents — Denise and Kevin Sr. Priyanka’s mom and brother were there too!
“I love that our wedding was a religious mash-up,” the Quantico star explained. “We took beautiful traditions that we both grew up with and personalized them in a way that made sense for us. It’s been incredible to find the commonalities between our beliefs and figuring out how to blend them in a respectful and meaningful way.” Are we tearing up or is there just something in our eyes?
