Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra’s First Wedding Photos Revealed

Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas tied the knot in a three-day celebration at the Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur over the weekend.

Nick and Priyanka had a multi-day wedding that included both a Christian and Hindu ceremony that the actress called 'religious mash-up'.

The Nickyanka wedding has been nothing short of spectacular, but did Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas lose sight of their values in planning the extravaganza?

Talking to People magazine, the newly weds revealed how they couldn't hold back the tears, as Priyanka confessed that marrying Nick was the best decision of her life.

For the Hindu ceremony, Priyanka looked every inch the handsome bride in a traditional Indian outfit by noted designer Sabyasachi Mukherji. Afterward, Jonas' parents flew to Mumbai to meet Chopra's family and celebrate their engagement in a Hindu pre-wedding ceremony called a roka. Priyanka's stunning gown was a hand-beaded and embroidered gown with a 75-foot long veil (!) and she was escorted down the aisle by her mother, according to People.

The custom gown, which took 1,826 hours to complete, features floral and scroll motifs in addition to scalloped sleeves, beads, embroidery and a high-neck collar.

It is a common tradition in India to see the groom, accompanied by family and friends, ride a decorated horse or elephant during a procession to the wedding venue.

Priyanka, who is a spokesman for a campaign to help people with asthma, was earlier lambasted for hypocrisy over the fireworks display on Saturday.

'I think I was nervous and scared.

If you think this cultural clash sounds like it would be ripe for some good-natured fun, you're be right.

Prior to the Hindu wedding ceremony, Priyanka and Nick had traditional mehendi and sangeet functions. Honestly, I could not have imagined it would be as flawless as it was. Chopra and Jonas even advised their guests to take a vacation after their wedding-that's how over-the-top the nuptials were. Jonas himself called the moment "highly emotional" for him.
