After two separate ceremonies this weekend, Hollywood royalty Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra are officially husband and wife.
The bride shared photos and videos of their Hindu ceremony on Sunday, the day after a Christian celebration, reflecting how their relationship has been a blending of cultures from the beginning.
It's been a whirlwind courtship since Chopra, an actress, singer, and Miss World 2000, was first seen publicly with musician and actor Jonas, 26, at the Met Gala last year.
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
There were several traditional pre-wedding celebrations, Vogue reported, including a mehendi session where Chopra's hands and feet were decorated with henna by women of both families.
Earlier this week, Chopra's mother held a puja, an Indian ceremony for "showing reverence to a god, a spirit, or another aspect of the divine through invocations, prayers, songs, and rituals." Another pre-wedding party saw relatives and friends performing a dance, and haldi ceremony meant to ward off evil and bless the couple.
"People will need vacations after this wedding," Chopra, 36, joked to Vogue.

Ralph Lauren, Chopra's long-time collaborator, designed her custom wedding dress for Saturday's Christian ceremony. The designer also outfitted Jonas, along with the couple's bridesmaids and groomsmen.
It was a big family affair with Jonas's brothers, Kevin, Joe and Frankie, along with Chopra's brother Siddharth in the groom's party, and Jonas's dad Paul officiating, Elle reported. The couple exchanged Chopard rings, according to People.
The wedding was held at the jaw-dropping Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur, India, which also hosted Sunday's Hindu ceremony.
The couple made sure all the guests were equipped with a welcome kit that included "Indian Weddings For Dummies" and "Western Weddings For Dummies", because they're courteous like that, Cosmopolitan shared.
The night wrapped up with an impressive fireworks show.
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. pic.twitter.com/KcTD5D4MAw— Nick Jonas (@nickjonas) December 1, 2018
In the lead-up to their twin ceremonies, Chopra and Jonas hosted several events that blended both of their backgrounds.
"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," Chopra posted on Instagram.
They got engaged in August after a year of dating with a traditional Indian roka ceremony in front of their families. Jonas also celebrated Thanksgiving in India with Chopra's family.
