Here are photos and videos from Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra’s elaborate wedding(s) in India
Singer Nick Jonas and actress Priyanka Chopra tied the knot this past weekend — and the photos and videos being released of the dayslong celebration are sure to make other brides-to-be green with envy.
The couple, who were wed after a four-month courtship, announced their engagement in August. The 36-year-old Chopra and the 26-year-old Jonas posted festive pictures of themselves on social media.
The couple had two ceremonies in India — one in a style native to that country, and another in keeping with Western traditions — and hosted about 225 guests over four days at the Taj Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur, People.com reported Tuesday.
The couple were married in the Western ceremony on the palace’s lawn on Saturday, Dec. 1, People.com reported. Chopra posted a video on Twitter on Tuesday morning showing her Ralph Lauren gown and 75-foot-long veil, which required almost a half-dozen people to hold up behind her.
The bride was walked down the aisle by her mother; her father reportedly died of cancer in 2013. She held a bouquet of tuberoses, which she said was her favorite flower, and a string quartet played during the ceremony.
Chopra told People.com that she couldn’t help crying: “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.” Jonas himself called the moment “highly emotional” for him.
The couple again exchanged vows in a glamorous Hindu wedding the following day, People.com reported.
Chopra herself shared photos from both events on Twitter.
“I love that our wedding was a religious mash-up,” Chopra told People.com. “It’s been incredible to find the commonalities between our beliefs and figuring out how to blend them in a respectful and meaningful way.”
“We were both filled with gratitude for the effort, the love and the laughter and will carry the memories of this special evening for the rest of our lives,” Chopra wrote on Instagram.

It all began as a fierce song & dance competition between the families but ended, as always, as a huge celebration of love. Nick and I were looking forward to the Sangeet (musical evening), another pre wedding ritual.. and to see what each side had put together. And what a performance it was. Each family telling our stories through song and dance, filled with lots of laughter and love. We were both filled with gratitude for the effort, the love and the laughter and will carry the memories of this special evening for the rest of our lives. It is an amazing start to a lifetime of togetherness for our families and friends...#grateful @nickjonas 📹/📷: @calebjordanlee @josevilla @josephradhik
