On Dec. 1, the day after Chopra and Jonas had a Mehendi ceremony, where they were both adorned with henna tattoos, and a Sangeet that night in which both families performed elaborate musical numbers with choreography and costumes, the bride and groom were married in a Western ceremony on the palace’s lawn.As a string quartet played, Chopra, wearing a hand-beaded and embroidered Ralph Lauren gown with a stunning 75-foot long veil, was escorted down the aisle by her mother Madhu.The events saw 225 guests gathering, including Jonas’s brothers Kevin and his wife Danielle, Joe with fiancee Sophie Turner, and Chopra’s brother Siddharth.
The couple opted to have two different ceremonies in India to honor their different backgrounds, as Chopra revealed in an interview with People: “It melted my heart. Being able to have two big weddings, in India, with our closest family and friends was unbelievably special.”
Chopra also described the moment walking down the aisle as “all tears,” saying, “I knew I was making the best decision of my life.” Jonas also shared similar feelings. “The emotions were running high during the ceremonies, I think especially during the Western wedding for me. You know you think your whole life about that moment. Honestly, I could not have imagined it would be as perfect as it was. It was highly emotional,” he told the mag.
Pre-wedding traditions included a Mehendi ceremony on Nov. 30, where the couple was adorned in various henna tattoos. Later that night they held a Sangeet, a musical event in which both families performed elaborate dances with choreography and intricate costumes.
The couple exchanged vows for a second time on Sunday for a Hindu wedding. The weekend wrapped up with a bridal ritual known as a Bidaai, where Chopra’s family blessed her new life with Jonas.
