Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas appeared on the cover of People magazine and revealed details about their wedding day! They had two main ceremonies – a traditional Hindu one and a Christian one. Priyanka said: “Every girl dreams of being a princess on her wedding day. But I never had a plan about what I wanted it to be.” She added that the two ceremonies in India to celebrate their different backgrounds really meant a lot. “It melted my heart, being able to have two big weddings, in India, with our closest family and friends was unbelievably special.”
For the Hindu wedding, Priyanka, 36, wore a red sari, while Jonas, 26, was dressed in a traditional outfit and turban. The bride looked stunning in a Sabyasachi ensemble.
The bride carried a bouquet of tuberoses, her favorite flower, designed by Jenya Flowers, which created the floral arrangements for the entire wedding party. Priyanka admits: “I could not hold it in. I think I was nervous and scared. But as soon as the curtains opened, and I saw his face it was just like everything settled and I knew I was making the best decision of my life. It was all tears. All tears.”
Nick added that “the emotions were running high during the ceremonies, I think especially during the Western wedding for me. You know you think your whole life about that moment. Honestly, I could not have imagined it would be as perfect as it was. It was highly emotional.”
After the Hindu ceremony, the newlyweds were blessed by their family in a special Indian ritual. Chopra shared: “I love that our wedding was a religious mash-up. We took beautiful traditions that we both grew up with and personalized them in a way that made sense for us. It’s been incredible to find the commonalities between our beliefs and figuring out how to blend them in a respectful and meaningful way.”
