Off the mar­ket! In­side Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra’s five-day wed­ding ex­trav­a­ganza in In­dia.

Meet Mr. and Mrs. Jonas! The eu­phoric cou­ple cel­e­brate their love with mul­ti­ple cer­e­monies, fire­works, star-stud­ded mu­si­cal per­for­mances and (nat­u­rally) a bride vs. groom cricket match


When Priyanka Chopra re­ceived a flirty di­rect message from Nick Jonas in Septem­ber 2016, she had no idea it would lead to a friend­ship, a courtship — then cul­mi­nate in a whirl­wind en­gage­ment of just a few months. The “Jeal­ous” singer, who’s 10 years younger than the ac­tress, al­ways had his mind set on her. “Nick knew he was go­ing to marry Priyanka from early on,” a source re­veals to Us. “He was head over heels.” That fan­tasy fi­nally be­came re­al­ity on Dec. 1, when they tied the knot in her na­tive In­dia. The next day they said “I do” again in a tra­di­tional Hindu cer­e­mony. “Ev­ery­thing ran to per­fec­tion,” says an in­sider. “It was a dream come true.”

For both Nick, 26, and Priyanka, 36, it was im­por­tant to “blend wed­ding tra­di­tions from both cul­tures,” says a close pal of the cou­ple’s. They did so by cel­e­brat­ing their five-day ex­trav­a­ganza with three prenup­tial cer­e­monies start­ing Nov. 28, and then two wed­dings: a West­ern cer­e­mony of­fi­ci­ated by the groom’s dad, Kevin Jonas Sr., and a Hindu cer­e­mony where Nick rode in on a horse. “All the months of plan­ning for the oc­ca­sion cer­tainly paid off,” the in­sider notes. “Ev­ery­one had a blast.” Most of all the new­ly­weds: “Nick and Priyanka,” adds a source, “never looked so in love.”


With the grand wed­ding be­hind them, the duo are ready to take the next step. “Priyanka re­ally wants a fam­ily,” says a source, “and is thrilled that she’ll be do­ing that with Nick.”

Be­fore ty­ing the knot, the pair cel­e­brated their soon-to-be wed­ding at a me­hendi cer­e­mony on Nov. 30. “That’s where the bride gets all of the henna put on her hands,” In­dian wed­ding plan­ner Sonal J. Shah tells Us.

The cou­ple wed at the Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodh­pur. At the Dec. 1 re­cep­tion, the new­ly­weds danced to Roberta Flack’s “First Time Ever I Saw Your Face,” which was fol­lowed by threemin­utes of fire­works.

The Quan­tico ac­tress par­tied with fu­ture sis­ter-in-law (Joe Jonas’ fi­ancée) and Game of Thrones star So­phie Turner at her side. Says a source, “Priyankaab­so­lutely adores So­phie.”

The duo were joined by fam­ily — in­clud­ing Nick’s brothers Kevin, Joe and Frankie — and friends (sans a preg­nant Meghan Markle) dur­ing the nearly week­long run of events. They even cel­e­brated theirnup­tials with a cricket match!

Fol­low­ing the me­hendi cer­e­mony, Nick and Priyanka (both wear­ing Abu Jani San­deep Khosla) took part in an epic dance-off at their sangeet, a mu­si­cal prewed­ding rit­ual.
