Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas have opened up about their emotional wedding after they tied the knot with two stunning ceremonies over the weekend.
Chopra, 36, and Jonas, 26, said their “I dos” at the five-star Taj Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur, throwing a Christian ceremony on Saturday before having an Indian wedding a day later.
Chopra, who donned a gorgeous hand-beaded Ralph Lauren gown for the Western ceremony, told People: “Every girl dreams of being a princess on her wedding day. But I never had a plan about what I wanted it to be.
“It melted my heart. Being able to have two big weddings, in India, with our closest family and friends was unbelievably special.”
The showbiz pair, who got engaged in July after just two months of dating, were joined by 225 guests for the bash, including Jonas’ brothers, Kevin, Joe and Frankie, as well as Kevin’s wife Danielle and Joe’s fiancee Sophie Turner.
Chopra, who wore a deep red lehenga by designer Sabyasachi Mukherji for the Hindu ceremony, continued, “It was all tears. All tears. I could not hold it in. I think I was nervous and scared. But as soon as the curtains opened, and I saw his face it was just like everything settled and I knew I was making the best decision of my life.”
Jonas added that “emotions were running high during the ceremonies, I think especially during the Western wedding for me. You know you think your whole life about that moment. Honestly, I could not have imagined it would be as perfect as it was. It was highly emotional.”
Chopra continued, “I love that our wedding was a religious mash-up. We took beautiful traditions that we both grew up with and personalized them in a way that made sense for us. It’s been incredible to find the commonalities between our beliefs and figuring out how to blend them in a respectful and meaningful way.”
In another interview with Hello! magazine, Jonas defended the duo’s decision to tie the knot so soon.
“Both of our parents actually got married pretty quickly after meeting each other,” the singer explained. “Mine were three months and her parents 10 days. People always say ‘you know when you know’ – but really, ‘you know when you know.'”
