Mr. and Mrs. Jonas in the house, y’all!
It finally happened! Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra are now officially a married couple.
The 36-year-old Quantico star and the 26-year-old “Find You” singer have tied the knot over the weekend – not just once, but TWICE!
As previously reported, the loved-up pair had planned their wedding to celebrate both their Western and Hindu traditions, and their glamorous three-day wedding festivities in Jodhpur, India is the stuff of dreams!
The couple shared the happy news on their social media, sharing photos from their wedding and looking like they’re having the time of their lives.
The wedding festivities took place at the Taj Umaid Bhawan Palace. And here are some highlights from their wedding weekend:
- The loved-up pair kicked off the celebrations with the pre-wedding ritual called the Mehendi on Friday (November 30), where, as part of the Hindu wedding tradition, the bride gets henna tattoos prior to her wedding.

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.
E! News reports that their colorful Mehendi ensembles are Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla Couture dress – a 48-multipanelled organdy sherwani embellished in silk detailing and containing two organza layered drapes for the bride-to-be. The groom-to-be-wore a traditional Hindu, aqua Banarasi cotton Bakhiya kurta, embellished in finest threadwork embroidery in various stitches.
And Priy’s cousin Parineeti Chopra’s caption about Nick as she welcomed him into the family totally has us swooning.
“THE MEHNDI. The job of us bridesmaids was to make sure the bride was happy and comfortable at all times. But we didn’t have to worry about it – coz Nick promised to do it all his life. Welcome to the family Nick jiju!! Im so so happy that the Jonas and Chopra family are now united!!!”
Nick promised to make sure his bride will be happy and comfy all his life. Awww…how sweet is that?!?
2. The Mehendi was followed by a Sangeet celebration, a musical evening designed to bring together the families of the bride and groom. It was a night of music and dancing, with performances put together by both sides of the family, and of course, the bride and groom!

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
3. They tied the knot in a Christian ceremony on Saturday (December 1). Nick fam was there – mom and dad, Denise Jonas and Paul Kevin Jonas Sr., with Kevin and his wife Danielle, Joe and his fiancée Sophie Turner, and Frankie. Nick’s dad, who’s a pastor, officiated their Christian wedding ceremony on Saturday (December 1).
According to Vogue, Priy looked absolutely stunning in a Ralph Lauren gown.
Awww…this is bringing on major nostalgia – remember their first red carpet together at the 2017 Met Gala when they both wore Ralph Lauren?
4. Priy took part in a few pre-wedding rituals a few hours before their Hindu wedding – which include the haldi ceremony, where the haldi paste is applied to ward off the evil eye and bring good fortune; a chooda ceremony, in which she is gifted 21 bangles from family members; and a safa ceremony. The Time News Network reports that the color scheme was pink, orange and purple, and the decor included marigolds.
5.The Hindu wedding took place on Sunday (December 2) on the palace grounds. And following tradition, Nick rode in on a ghodi (horse), and the couple also rode on an elephant prior to the varmala or garland exchange ceremony.
The ceremony also featured a 40-foot high wedding mandap or canopy decked out in red flowers, according to the Hindustan Times. And Priy was totally rocking a stunning Sabyasachi ensemble, per the Times News Network.
An insider told E! News that Priy looked “breathtaking in her traditional red Indian wedding outfit,” adding that, “Nick did a beautiful job following the customs of a Hindu ceremony, it was lovely seeing how they honored both of their heritages.”
Wowza! Definitely on event for the books!
“People will need vacations after this wedding,” Priyanka previously joked to Vogue.
Congratulations and best wishes to the newlyweds!
