Priyanka Chopra And Nick Jonas’ Wedding Was A Singing And Dancing Dream Come True
Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas are having an incredible wedding weekend. The couple has had a series of events, including a Christian wedding ceremony on Saturday and a Hindu ceremony Sunday. The photos so far are AMAZING so we definitely had to share.
According to People reports, the couple were officially wed Saturday during a Christian ceremony officiated by Jonas’ father, Paul Kevin Jonas Sr, where both bride and groom wore custom Ralph Lauren and exchanged wedding bands by Chopard.
Saturdany night’s reception included a massive fireworks display over the Umaid Bhawan Palace.
On Sunday, the Priyanka and Nick had a Hindu ceremony.
“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,” a source told PEOPLE earlier this week. “They are doing both.”
Nick and Priyanka both shared photos from her Mehendi ceremony held prior to the weddings…
“One of the most special things that our relationship has given us is a merging of families that 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. @nickjonas”
The Mehendi ceremony is a Hindu wedding ritual that is traditionally all female, with the women from both the bride and groom’s families as well as the bride’s close friends gathering as the bride had henna designs applied to her hands and feet. In this case, Priyanka and Nick both had henna applied to their hands and their event was coed.
Now that’s a great way to swirl it up right?
Another pre-wedding ritual the bride and groom enjoyed was the Sangeet — a musical evening where both sing and dance… You know these two had a ball.
“It all began as a fierce song & dance competition between the families but ended, as always, as a huge celebration of love,” Chopra wrote on Instagram along with a series of videos and photos from the big night. “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”
The Jonas Brothers got the band back together for the big event.
Besides dancing with her hubby to be, Priyanka also made moves with her mom Madhu Chopra, and “Game of Thrones” actress Sophie Tucker. Nick’s “Kingdom” costar Jonathan Tucker was also in the mix.
