Nick Jonas And Priyanka Chopra Got Married In India This Weekend
After a whirlwind four-month romance, Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas have gotten married in a stunning wedding held at the Umaid Bhawan Palace in Johdpur, Rajasthan.
The lovebirds arrived in Priyanka’s native India last week. Jonas, 26, and Chopra, 36, said their “I do’s” in a Western-style ceremony Saturday officiated by Nick’s father Paul Kevin Sr. On Sunday, they held a Hindu ceremony to honor Priyanka’s roots. Their international list of celebrity guests also partied at the Palace after the ceremonies.
They are committed to honoring each other’s heritage and culture, Chopra wrote in a post on Instagram. She explained: “Planning our wedding with an amalgamation of both was so amazing. … we made it our own and it was an afternoon that kicked off the celebrations in the way we both dreamed.”

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
Both the bride and the groom wore Ralph Lauren. The designer holds a special place in their hearts as they also both wore Ralph Lauren to the 2017 Met Gala, which took place one week before their first date. Famed jeweler Chopard designed their wedding bands. The bridal party consisted of several family members, including Nick’s brothers Kevin and Joe, Kevin’s wife Danielle and Joe’s fiancée Sophie Turner.
Sources say that guests “were given various gifts and a gift bag on their arrival with cards from Priyanka and Nick.”
“The cards are gold-and-white and gorgeous and lay out the itinerary for the weekend. Inside the gift bags is a bag labeled ‘Taste of India,’ which has all sorts of traditional foods, spices and treats from India so guests can get a taste of Priyanka’s culture,” the source adds. “Inside guests were also given ‘The Oh Sh*t Kit,’ which is for people who may have forgotten something or for their hangover. Women were given beautiful totes as well.”

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 of the pre wedding rituals 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
Four months ago, Nick proposed to Priyanka with a $200K engagement ring. Nick popped the question on vacation in Crete, where they were celebrating her birthday. “I got down on one knee, again, and I said, ‘Will you make me the happiest man in the world and marry me?’” Nick told Vogue. “No joke — she took about 45 seconds. Forty-five seconds of silence.” Priyanka has acted in more than 50 films, including India’s first superhero franchise, Krrish. She also founded Purple Pebble Pictures, which develops movies across India’s regional film industries and in its various languages: Sikkimese, Punjabi, Hindi, English. Nick rose to fame as a member of the Jonas Brothers. While they eventually broke up, Nick has gone on to enjoy a successful solo career. He also co-founded Safehouse Records, in conjunction with Island Records and Hollywood Records.
