That’s not a typo in the title! Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas tied the knot twice over the weekend, first in a Christian ceremony and then in a traditional Hindu ceremony. The globe-trotting lovebirds are officially hitched after a whirlwind romance!
Priyanka shared a photo of the laughing couple with a thoughtful caption describing how they managed to celebrate both of their heritages:
“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 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.”
The Christian ceremony on Saturday was officiated by Jonas’ father, who is a pastor. The rest of the Jonas clan was there to celebrate with them. Honestly, it looks like everyone had an amazing time!
Gorgeous Clothes and Epic Parties
Priyanka and Nick wore custom Ralph Lauren outfits for the Western nuptials on Saturday, according to the designer. On Sunday’s Indian ceremony, Priyanka wore this incredible traditional costume in vibrant yellow, red, and green.
The biggest disappointment was that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry did not attend the ceremony. Priyanka is good friends with Meghan and made the guest list for their wedding earlier this summer. Of course, there are major security concerns when it comes to hosting royalty, so it’s understandable.
One of the traditional elements of an Indian wedding is the sangeet—a kind of musical dance-off for the families. You can spy Game of Thrones actress Sophie Turner (Joe Jonas’s girlfriend) wearing red in the photo above. That looks like an amazing party!
A Happy Ending for an Unlikely Couple
Let’s be frank: On paper, Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas don’t make any sense. She’s 10 years older than him, for one thing—36 to his 26. She’s a Bollywood actress who made the jump to American television, and he’s a former boyband popstar.
Gossip watchers were more than a little suspicious that their romance was nothing but a PR stunt. It didn’t help that they announced their engagement only a few months after going public with their relationship. But they seem genuinely happy. There’s enough bad news in the world without raining on their lavish wedding festivities.
