Both Priyanka and Nick wore traditional Indian outfits for their Hindu ceremony. Happily posing with the newlyweds and congratulating them on the start of their new journey, PM Modi was caught sharing a laugh with Priyanka and Nick. She looked straight out of a dream in her one of a kind Ralph Lauren wedding gown for her Christian wedding ceremony.

Some details are obvious at first look, like the stunning hand-beading and hand-embroidery, the enormous, 75-foot veil, and the sheer volume of mother-of-pearl sequins - 2,380,000 in all. Inside of the purple lapel of the tuxedo, he added a small piece of lace from the bride's dress embroidered with the Urdu words "My Jaan" which translates to "My Life". "It melted my heart", Chopra told People of the idea.

Nick, on his emotions during his wedding: "The emotions were running high during the ceremonies, I think especially during the Western wedding for me. All tears", said the actor, who carried a bouquet of hyacinths and tuberoses designed by Jenya Flowers (NYC), which created the floral arrangements for the entire wedding party. Priyanka's mother Madhu and her brother Siddharth were in attendance along with Jonas' parents, grandmother and older brother Joe Jonas and his fiancée Sophie Turner, who dressed for the occasion in her own peach-colored lehenga. While no photos of the nuptials have been released yet, the stars did post pictures of their mehendi and sangeet ceremonies.
