MOST GIRLS SPEND YEARS DREAM­ING ABOUT their wed­ding day and lucky Priyanka Cho­pra got to marry the man of her dreams not once, but twice. After first con­nect­ing with singer Nick Jonas, 26, in 2016 and get­ting en­gaged after just two months of dat­ing, the pair spent a week ty­ing the knot in cel­e­bra­tion with friends and fam­ily.

The “Jeal­ous” singer popped the ques­tion to the In­dian ac­tress in Crete on her 36th birth­day on July 18 after re­port­edly hir­ing out an en­tire Tif­fany & Co. store to pick her ring. But their nup­tials were even more elab­o­rate – filled with A-list guests, henna tat­toos and vi­brant wed­ding at­tire.

Cho­pra daz­zled in a cus­tom Ralph Lau­ren wed­ding dress, with Jonas and the whole bri­dal party sport­ing the same de­signer, with both fam­i­lies fol­low­ing suit. On Dec. 1, the pair said their vows dur­ing a tra­di­tional Chris­tian wed­ding cer­e­mony in Cho­pra’s home coun­try of In­dia, be­fore con­tin­u­ing the fes­tiv­i­ties and hon­our­ing the bride’s her­itage with a Hindu cer­e­mony.

In an In­sta­gram post shortly after the tra­di­tional In­dian cer­e­mony, Cho­pra wrote: “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.” •

A Mehendi cer­e­mony was or­gan­ised by Cho­pra’s fam­ily, held at her Mum­bai home where the bride was dec­o­rated with henna. The happy cou­ple pic­tured dur­ing a pre-mar­riage rit­ual called a Puja, where Hindu de­ity Ganesh is wor­shipped for good luck.

Cho­pra’s brides­maid and cousin Pari­neeti Cho­pra said, “I’m so, so happy that the Jonas and Cho­pra fam­ily are now united!”
