Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas have made their first appearance officially as a married couple today. After a weekend wedding extravaganza at the Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur, the bride and groom were spotted leaving the Indian state of Rajasthan after the celebrations.
Chopra stunned in a green sari with a scalloped trim and gold floral embroidery. The look is by Sabyasachi, a renowned traditional Indian designer known for dressing the country’s A-list. (Just a few weeks ago, Bollywood power couple Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh wore custom looks by the designer for their own lavish wedding.)

Priyanka also wore cat eye sunglasses and jewelry by Sabyasachi. She still had henna on her hands and sindoor (red powdered dye signifying a married woman in Hinduism) in her hair part from the wedding celebrations.
Nick, giving a thumbs up to photographers, smiled alongside his wife, wearing round sunglasses, a khaki jacket and pants, and white sneakers. The couple was flanked heavily by security for the public cameo.
Priyanka and Nick’s nuptials were extremely private (guests were even barred from using their phones), but the newlyweds still shared glimpses of the ceremonies with their fans on social media.
The couple shared photos from the mehendi, the pre-wedding ritual where henna is applied on the bride’s hands, where Chopra wore a vibrant striped dress by Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla. Some of those photographed at the festivities included Sophie Turner, fiancée of Nick’s brother, Joe Jonas, Priyanka’s cousin Parineeti Chopra, and Nick’s mom Denise.

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 of the pre wedding rituals 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
The couple also shared highlights from the sangeet, the pre-wedding celebration featuring music and dance performances by the couple’s families. Chopra and Jonas’ take on the tradition looked like a full-blown concert, with a massive stage and lively sets from their loved ones.
“It is an amazing start to a lifetime of togetherness for our families and friends,” Chopra said in an Instagram caption.

It all began as a fierce song & dance competition between the families but ended, as always, as a huge celebration of love. Nick and I were looking forward to the Sangeet (musical evening), another pre wedding ritual.. and to see what each side had put together. And what a performance it was. Each family telling our stories through song and dance, filled with lots of laughter and love. We were both filled with gratitude for the effort, the love and the laughter and will carry the memories of this special evening for the rest of our lives. It is an amazing start to a lifetime of togetherness for our families and friends…#grateful @nickjonas 📹/📷: @calebjordanlee @josevilla @josephradhik
The couple tied the knot with both a Christian wedding and a traditional Indian wedding this weekend. Photos from those occasions have yet to be released, but based on the couple’s extravagant pre-wedding ceremonies, we can already imagine how dreamy the actual nuptials were.
