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.
The pictures depict a Mehendi ceremony, a time before the wedding itself where the women in both families come together and apply henna designs to the bride. The Mehendi for Chopra looks to have taken place Friday afternoon.
Jonas describes its importance to pay respect to these cultural traditions while he and his wife merge their religious beliefs together. As he describes it, they “made it [their] own”.
Fans have been very excited for this union.
Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas really had what seems to be like the cutest wedding and my Bollywood loving self as well as the Disney Channel lover in me is crying rn #NickYankaKiShaadi pic.twitter.com/NNvlm4TW6e

One wedding took place on Saturday; a Christian service officiated by the groom’s pastor father, Kevin Jonas Sr. A Hindu wedding ceremony was held Sunday at the Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur, Rajasthan.
According to People magazine:
“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. They are doing both.”
Many wished the couple well.
Congratulations to the happy couple!

Jonas and Chopra were confirmed as dating in May of this year, but speculation goes back to a 2017 walk down the red carpet at the Met Gala.
They were engaged in July 2018.
