Nick Jonas And Priyanka Chopra On Their Unique Wedding Celebration: ‘We Made It Our Own’
They’re officially husband and wife! Just five months after their whirlwind engagement, singer Nick Jonas and actress Priyanka Chopra finally tied the knot. On Saturday, Dec. 1, Nick and Priyanka got married during a gorgeous Western ceremony in India, Priyanka’s home country, according to People. The newlyweds took to social media to share their thoughts on their incredible day.
“One of the most special things our relationship has given us is the merging of families that love and respect each other’s faiths and cultures,” they both revealed in a joint statement on Instagram. “And so planning our wedding with an amalgamation of both was so so amazing.” We can only imagine.
They also explained a little about their traditional Indian ceremony. “An important part for the girl in an Indian wedding is the Mehendi,” they continued. “Once again, we made it our own and it was an afternoon that kicked off the celebrations in the way we both dreamed.” Are y’all crying yet, or what? Cause we’re seriously emotional here.
The couple, who started dating back in May, married at Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur, Rajasthan, and the ceremony was officiated by Nick’s dad, Paul Kevin Jonas, Sr. The bride and groom both donned custom Ralph Lauren (a big fave of Nick and Pri) and exchanged wedding bands designed by Chopard. But, potentially the coolest thing about this huge milestone for the couple? They’re about to do it all again tomorrow because they’re celebrating their nuptials all weekend long.
According to a source close with the newly married couple, having two ceremonies is actually pretty crucial for the pair. “It is super important to Priyanka to have an Indian ceremony that honors her heritage and culture, just as it’s important to also have a Western ceremony that honors Nick’s Christian upbringing,” the source revealed to People. So the couple will reportedly pause the partying, do a second ceremony on Sunday to honor Pri and her Hindu background, and then start up the party yet again! Sounds like a seriously good time if you ask us.
There’s been quite a bit of celebrating in the Jonas/Chopra camp over the last month or two, as Priyanka celebrated her bachelorette party in New York, and her bridal shower in Amsterdam. Then, the couple traveled to India for a Thanksgiving celebration, followed by a traditional puja ceremony for the couple a few days later.
Watching Nick and Pri in the lead up to their wedding has been so fast and so slow all at once –– it seems like just yesterday they went public with their relationship, and now they’re full-on married. The JoBros are finally all grown up, it seems!
Congrats to the beautiful couple, we’re just so happy for you guys.
