It’s official! Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra have tied the knot, marrying in a Hindu ceremony on Sunday.

The “Quantico” actress, 36, wed Jonas, 26, in a lavish Indian ceremony at the Taj Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur, India, the culmination of three days of wedding festivities, according to reports by People and E! News.

The couple had two ceremonies – a traditional Indian wedding and a Christian service Saturday officiated by Jonas’s father – each held in different spots at the palace in Rajasthan.

The couple both wore traditional wedding outfits for Sunday’s ceremony. The day before Chopra and Jonas both wore custom Ralph Lauren for the Western wedding, with the official Ralph Lauren Twitter account confirming Saturday that the designer would be dressing the couple and their wedding party.

The couple has yet to post any wedding pictures but did throw fans a bone. On Monday, both shared a photo from their Vogue photo shoot with Annie Leibowitz on their Instagram accounts.

Typically, Indian wedding rituals last for at least three days, with a ceremony on each day and the last day ending with a cocktail party and reception for the extended family and friends of the bride and groom.

Jonas and Chopra’s pre-wedding events began on Wednesday in India, starting with a puja ceremony at Chopra’s mother Dr. Madhu Chopra’s Mumbai home, according to reports from E! News and Indian outlet the Hindustan Times.

The bride-to-be sported a light blue outfit with cream and pink embellishments, while Jonas opted for a pink kurta. The couple both completed their looks with sunglasses to shield their eyes from the sun.

Jonas’ brother Joe and his fiancée, “Game of Thrones” star Sophie Turner, were also in attendance at the ceremony in traditional Indian ensembles, with the actress wearing red and yellow while the “DNCE” singer rocked blue.

A puja ceremony “is the act of showing reverence to a god, a spirit, or another aspect of the divine through invocations, prayers, songs, and rituals,” according to the Smithsonian Institute.

The couple was spotted out at a dinner in Mumbai the night before the puja ceremony. Chopra rocked a strappy deep bronze maxi dress alongside Jonas, who kept it simple in a white, short-sleeved, button-down shirt.

Chopra posted a photo on Tuesday of her and Jonas surrounded by her family and friends, along with Joe and Turner, tagging the location as Mumbai. She captioned the Instagram shot with a heart emoji: “Friends.. family..”

Jonas spent Thanksgiving with Chopra’s family in India, sharing adorable photos of the visit to the actress’ home country.

Rumors began swirling about a possible relationship between the couple earlier this year.

The two reportedly began dating in May, just months before Jonas popped the question with a stunning engagement ring. Reports circulated about the couple’s engagement for a month before they confirmed it with matching Instagram posts in August. Chopra also posted photos from what appeared to be an engagement ceremony in Mumbai.

She embarked on a boat ride in Amsterdam for her bachelorette party in November to celebrate her pending nuptials alongside sister-in-law and “Game of Thrones” star Sophie Turner.

Chopra has credits as an actress, film producer and philanthropist. The Indian star was the winner of the Miss World pageant in 2000. Chopra became a major Bollywood star, starring in “Aitraaz,” “Fashion” and “Barfi!,” before making her way into American TV and film.

Chopra landed the lead role in the political thriller series “Quantico” as the character Alex Parrish, working on the series from its debut in 2015 until the finale in 2018. She also starred in last summer’s remake of action comedy “Baywatch.”

Jonas rose to fame as one-third of the Jonas Brothers along with his older brothers Joe and Kevin, simultaneously becoming prominent Disney Channel stars and household names. The trio disbanded in pursuit of other endeavors, and Jonas launched a solo singing career.

Jonas has also parlayed his fame into acting projects, recently appearing in the 2017 blockbuster “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle,” alongside Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Kevin Hart.
