The wedding photos and video of Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas' grand wedding are finally out. The couple sold the rights of the photos to People magazine prior to their wedding and the magazine's latest issue gives sneak peek into the grand wedding.

For the white wedding, Priyanka chose a white Ralph Lauren gown with a long trail which was 75 feet long. Even Nick wore a Ralph Lauren tuxedo. The choice of the designer was symbolic as the two had first met at the Met Gala in 2017 while representing Ralph Lauren on the red carpet. Priyanka is also the first woman the designer has designed a wedding gown for. He has earlier only made wedding gowns for own family members. 

“Every girl dreams of being a princess on her wedding day,” Chopra, 36, tells the magazine in their cover story. “But I never had a plan about what I wanted it to be.”

“It melted my heart,” adds the Quantico actress. “Being able to have two big weddings, in India, with our closest family and friends was unbelievably special.”

Hosting an epic wedding weekend for 225 guests including Jonas’s brothers Kevin (with wife Danielle), Joe (with fiancée, actress Sophie Turner) and Frankie along with Chopra’s brother Siddharth- the couple held court for four days at the Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur.

For the Hindu wedding, both chose Sabyasachi Mukherjee designs. While Nick wore a golden sherwani, Priyanka looked stunning in a red lehenga-choli.

“It was all tears. All tears” says the actress, who carried a bouquet of hyacinths and tuberoses as she walked down the aisle. “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.”

“I love that our wedding was a religious mash-up,” says the actress in the interview to People. “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."
