We Have the First Photos (and Videos!) from Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas's Two Wedding Ceremonies
JONAS AND CHOPRA SHARED THE FIRST PHOTOS AND VIDEOS OF THEIR CEREMONIES.
We finally have a look inside the wedding—and it does not disappoint. Priyanka's custom, hand-beaded Ralph Lauren gown was paired with a jaw-dropping 75-foot veil. A bird's eye view in the video, shared on Instagram and embedded from People below, gives an idea of the immense scale.
For his part, Jonas was waiting at the alter in a sharp Lauren suit. The video catches him wiping away a quick tear as his bride walks down the aisle.
The newlyweds also shared a photo from their Indian ceremony. "Happiest day of my life," Jonas added in a caption. "And forever starts now..." Chopra wrote in hers.
CHOPRA SHARED AN AMAZING VIDEO OF THE SANGEET.
The Sangeet is a traditional pre-wedding party in Indian culture. What's not typical is a professionally-produced competition between two celebrity families. Chopra posted about the Sangeet on Instagram, writing that "Each family was telling our stories through song and dance, filled with laughter and love."
The video strings together short clips of the performances, showing Chopra dancing with her mother, Madhu Chopra, and revealing that the Jonas brothers were reunited onstage (although not side-by-side in the video, People reports that they sang together).
THE FIRST OF TWO CEREMONIES TOOK PLACE ON SATURDAY.
Chopra and Jonas planned two ceremonies, each of which will pay tribute to their respective cultures. “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.
The Christian ceremony was on Saturday, and the Indian celebration took place the next day. People reports that Jonas's father, a pastor, officiated their Saturday nuptials. And according to the BBC, fireworks erupted at its conclusion.
Although we don't yet have photos of the event, Chopra and Jonas each posted Instagram slideshows of the pre-wedding Mehendi, captioned with matching comments.
THE BRIDE AND GROOM BOTH WORE CUSTOM RALPH LAUREN AT THEIR CHRISTIAN WEDDING.
The couple's story together started after a shared appearance at the Met Gala, both sporting Ralph Lauren, so it's natural that they'd opt for the designer on their big day. For Lauren, however, it was a bigger leap: he had only previously made custom wedding gowns for his daughter, daughter-in-law and niece. In her recent Vogue cover story, Chopra confirmed this, and hinted that there might even be more than one Lauren dress.
Early Saturday morning, Ralph Lauren's Twitter account congratulated the newlyweds. "Ralph Lauren is honored to have dressed the couple as well as the members of their wedding party," the message read.
THE COUPLE ARRIVED AT THEIR WEDDING DESTINATION ON THURSDAY.
Chopra and Jonas wed at Taj Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur. The extravagant building was once the home of Maharaja Gaj Singh II, and has since been converted into a luxury resort.
They touched down at the Jodhpur airport on November 29, along with Priyanka's future in-laws: Joe Jonas, Sophie Turner, Kevin Jonas, and Danielle Jonas.

THEY'VE BEEN ENGAGED SINCE JULY 2018.
Jonas proposed to Chopra with a $200,000 Tiffany cushion-cut diamond this summer. The engagement came after a relatively quick romance—rumors swirled after they appeared together at the 2017 Met Gala, but they weren't officially a couple until this past May.
Things started getting serious when Jonas reportedly took Chopra to his cousin's wedding in June. Chopra followed suit, introducing Jonas to her family later that month.

CHOPRA HAD A BRIDAL SHOWER AND BACHELORETTE PARTY.
The actress hosted a bridal shower at Tiffany's Blue Box Café. Guests included Jonas's sister-in-law, Danielle Jonas, as well as fellow celebrities Kelly Ripa and Lupita Nyong'o. Chopra opted to wear a white, feathered Marchesa gown for the occasion.
Her bachelorette party, on the other hand, was in Amsterdam. Chopra shared several posts on Instagram, many of which show the actress in a stunning Georges Chakra dress. Sophie Turner, the Game of Thrones actress and fiancé of Joe Jonas, features prominently in Chopra's snaps.
JONAS MADE HIS GROOMSMEN PERSONALIZED E-SCOOTERS FOR SOME REASON.
Well, the reason is probably that Lime is paying him. Regardless, Jonas's Instagram post of five scooters reveals the names of five of his groomsmen: family members Joe Jonas, Kevin Jonas, and Frankie Jonas, Chopra's brother Siddharth Chopra, and Nick's Kingdom co-star Jonathan Tucker. According to E! News, there are six more groomsmen who have yet to be revealed.
CHOPRA SHARED A WEDDING REGISTRY GUIDE ON AMAZON.
In exchange for a $100,000 donation to UNICEF, the actress shared her wish list with the e-commerce giant. Peruse it here—you'll find everything from dinner plates to a dog raincoat.
THE COUPLE GOT A WEDDING LICENSE AHEAD OF THEIR CEREMONY.
Early in November, Chopra and Jonas took care of the paperwork at the Beverly Hills courthouse. So even though their wedding is rumored to take place on December 2, legally, they're already hitched.
