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. An important part 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. @nickjonas

We hope Priyanka shares pictures from her first of the wedding ceremonies soon. Priyanka wore a customised Ralph Lauren gown for the wedding and Nick too was dressed in the same label. Outfits for the Chopras and the Jonas were all courtesy of Ralph Lauren.
Meanwhile, a second wedding ceremony as per Hindu rituals is scheduled for tomorrow.
Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas' Christian wedding was attended by the Ambanis, Arptia Khan Sharma and YouTuber Lilly Singh, among other. Arpita arrived in Jodhpur in time for the mehendi but Nita and Mukesh Ambani along with their daughter Isha, son Anant and his rumoured girlfriend Radhika Merchant landed in the evening in time for the sangeet.
The guests at the wedding have been asked not to bring mobile phones with the camera and the entry to the Umaid Bhawan Palace is strictly restricted by invitation.
Congratulations, Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas.
