The groom’s father, Paul Kevin Jonas Sr., officiated Saturday’s Christian ceremony, where the couple exchanged wedding bands by famed jeweler Chopard.
On Sunday, the bride and groom will continue their epic wedding weekend with a Hindu ceremony to honor Chopra’s background.
“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,” a source told earlier this week. “They are doing both.”
Ahead of their big weekend, the couple celebrated Thanksgiving in India together. Days later, they held a puja ceremony to spiritually celebrate the upcoming event.
Following their arrival in Jodhpur, Chopra had a mehndi ceremony, where all the women in the bride and groom’s families and close female friends gather as the bride has elaborate henna designs applied to her hands and feet (guests usually get a few designs on their hands too) and the couple celebrated with a sangeet, an over-the-top party with endless food and drinks and perform songs or dances in honor of the couple.
Meanwhile, the couple first began talking in 2016 via Twitter and met in person for the first time at a party for the Academy Awards in 2017.
In September, Jonas opened up about the beginning of his romance with Chopra during an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. “It was kind of immediate, and I think we just knew it was right and jumped right in,” he said, even revealing their hilarious celebrity nickname. “She likes Prick,” he joked. “I don’t like that one very much.”
Chopra previously told that she was ready to be a mother.
“I am a very ‘live in the today,’ maximum ‘live in the next two months’ kind of person. But [in] 10 years, I definitely want to have kids. That is, it’s going to happen in the next 10 years. Well, hopefully, earlier than that. I’m very fond of children and I want to be able to do that,” she said.
