Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas are married!
Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra’s Wedding Ceremony in India!
After announcing their engagement in July, 2018, Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra are married. The couple confirmed their wedding on multiple media outlets and shared photos of their nuptials on Instagram. The wedding was held at the Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur, Rajasthan, with the bride and groom wearing wedding attire by designer, Ralph Lauren. Saturday’s wedding was officiated by the grooms father, Paul Kevin Jonas Sr., in a Christian ceremony. On Sunday, the couple will honor Chopra’s Indian background with a traditional Hindu ceremony. It was very important to the couple to have both an Indian and Western wedding ceremony that honored their heritage, culture, and upbringing.
Prior to the couple’s wedding date, Chopra had a Mehndi ceremony, where all the women gather together as the bride has henna applied to her hands and feet. Afterwards, the couple celebrated with a Sangeet, an extravagant party where traditional songs and dances are performed in honor of the couple.
How did the couple meet? Well, it goes down in the DM’s! Nick reached out to Priyanka in 2016 via private message on Twitter and the rest is history! The couple went out on a few casual dates until the relationship became serious in 2018. In one of the couple’s adorable moments, Priyanka gave a nod to her close friend, Meghan Markle, by recreating Meghan and Prince Harry’s engagement portrait at Ralph Lauren’s 50th anniversary celebration.
How does the couple feel about their nuptials? On the brides’s Instagram post today, Chopra states the following: “One of the most special things that our relationship has given us is a merging of families who love and respect each other’s faiths and cultures. And so planning our wedding with an amalgamation of both was so so amazing. An important part for the girl in an Indian wedding is the Mehendi. Once again we made it our own and it was an afternoon that kicked off the celebrations in the way we both dreamed.”
Best wishes to the beautiful couple!
