PRIYANKA + NICK'S WEDDING CELEBRATIONS - THE RECEPTION

We have been busy around here the last couple days so we haven’t had a chance to post about Priyanka & Nick’s reception. Oh how happy they looked! Held at the Taj Palace in the the bustling city of Delhi, the newlyweds celebrated with yet another lavish affair in style. The happy couple were all smiles at the reception full of high profile guests, including Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The happy couple were just glowing as newlyweds. Priyanka made heads turn in a silver and cream lehenga, stacked red-and-white bangles and a draped dupatta (shawl) to match. Her hair was adorned with white flowers and she wore the most beautiful pieces of jewelry – a pair of glittering earrings and a triple-tiered necklace. Her dapper husband looked handsome as ever in a navy-blue velvet tuxedo. How happy do they look!!!?!?!?

Indian weddings are full of colour, florals (lots of florals), elaborate backdrops and classic beauty. They in essence tell a story about the couple. I’m sure Priyanka & Nick had a major hand in planning many of the details that we saw throughout their wedding celebrations. They even had a monogram initials created for their wedding events starting with the roka ceremony.

As we’ve said before.. it’s all in the details!

Well done you two!

PRIYANKA + NICK'S WEDDING CELEBRATIONS - THE SANGEET

The wedding events continued for Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas with a joyous Sangeet celebration!

In simple terms… it’s all-out-huge-dance-party! An intense song and dance competition between the families made for a spectacular, fun and love-filled evening for everyone. Picture this - millions of fairy lights and mirrors lit up the grounds to create an enchanted fairytale land. A stunning backdrop for such an opulent venue as Umaid Bhavan Palace.

Priyanka stunned in a GORGEOUS hand embroidered gold and silver sari while Nick looked like a prince in his midnight blue sherwani with gold thread detailing. Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla you really nailed it. Royalty! Check out the amazing images below and enjoy!

What do you think!?!? Let us know!

PRIYANKA + NICK'S WEDDING CELEBRATIONS - THE MEHENDI

We just absolutely LOVE Bollywood weddings! From fresh, fun and colourful to elegant classic beauty, Priyanka Chopra + Nick Jonas’ wedding celebrations were nothing short of spectacular. A combination of two cultures made this fete one that was meaningful to both bride and groom. Should it be any other way??

Since cultural weddings like this one are multi-day celebrations, we wanted to share the beauty in each one! The first event is called a Mehendi. This ceremony usually takes place a day or two before the wedding where all of the women in the bride and groom’s families, along with close friends, gather together while the bride has elaborate henna designs applied to her hands and feet. Guests will usually get a few designs on their hands as well. Beautiful intricate designs created by very talented artists. Typically an ladies affair, the trend has gone towards having a coed event with both the bride and groom’s family and friends. The more the merrier I say!! An immensely colourful event with lots of singing and dancing typically kicks off the wedding celebrations!

Wearing Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla, Priyanka and Nick looked like rockstars! They both were so happy they couldn’t stop smiling! Personally we are so in LOVE with her dress!!! Absolutely stunning and so much fun!!!

Hope you enjoyed!
