On December 1st, Priyanka Chopra, and Nick Jonas were married in a Christian ceremony, and an Indian ceremony. All their celebrations took place at the Umaid Bhawan Palace  in Jodhpur, Rajatha, India.

The bridal fashions were wonderful to watch throughout the three day traditional celebrations. For her western-style ceremony Priyanka wore a custom Ralph Lauren gown, and Jonas‘ pastor father Paul Kevin Jonas Sr., was the officiate.

After the ceremony the bride and groom shared images of their traditional mehndi party the evening before. If you have never been to an Indian wedding, it is a pre-wedding event in Hindu and Sikh culture when the bride has the mehndi body art applied to her palms, and the back of her hands and feet.

The theme for Priyanka and Nick’s Mehndi event, The Blue City, is an ode to the host city, Jodhpur. During the Mehndi event there was a distinct playfulness as the American guests got to watch Indian sports with a cricket match and a baseball match.

Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla the forces behind Khosla Jani are the creators of the event.

Their thoughts about a Mehndi is that it calls for joyous and exuberant celebration. Priyanka’s outfit is a burst of colour. Nick’s aqua is the perfect balance, and they look like a dream together.

Priyanka, 36, is shown in the photos wearing a 48-multi-panel organdy sherwani. It is a long coat-like garment that is embellished with silk detailing. Two organza layer drapes complete this look. The design is folksy in spirit, and radiates joy and sentiment.

Nick, 26, is wearing a pale pistachio green/aqua Banarasi cotton Bakhiya kurta. The embellishment is with the embroidery in various stitches.
