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

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.
On Wednesday, Priyanka spoke to NDTV about her wedding and revealed the most special moment from her wedding. “The most special moment was when the curtains opened and I saw him at the altar and life was okay in that moment,” she said.
Regarding life after marriage, the actor said, “Women are always expected to have to shift their focus after love or marriage, but Nick didn’t expect me to do that. I’ve never had a guy who has said be ambitious and do what you want to do.”
Speaking about her outfits at both the Hindu and Christian weddings, she said that it was not about fashion but a personal choice. “I wanted something unique. Both the dresses – red and white – were personalised for me… I wanted the longest veil in the world and I got that. The outfits were personal choices,” Priyanka shared.
