Priyanka Chopra walked down the aisle to wed Nick Jonas with a breathtaking 75-foot tulle veil at the couple’s Western wedding ceremony held on Saturday in Jodhpur, India.
As the beautiful bride walked down the aisle alongside her mother Madhu (her father Ashok died of cancer in 2013), five people helped carry her long veil, which could be seen from an aerial shot video captured during the ceremony.
“Every girl dreams of being a princess on her wedding day,” Chopra tells PEOPLE exclusively in this week’s cover story. “But I never had a plan about what I wanted it to be.”
Chopra and Jonas both turned to fashion industry icon Ralph Lauren to design their custom wedding looks for the Western ceremony, which was a sentimental decision for the couple, as they attended the the 2017 Met Gala together as guests of the designer.
“They’re so much a part of our love story for obvious reasons,” Chopra tells PEOPLE in the latest cover story.
“For the Western wedding, we had been talking to a bunch of incredible designers, but ultimately when Ralph Lauren approached us, I learned that Ralph has only designed three wedding dresses in 50 years — one for his daughter, his daughter in law, and his niece,” Chopra explains, adding, “I was blown away.”
Working closely with Lauren and her stylist Mimi Cuttrell, Chopra ultimately fell in love with a hand-beaded and hand-embroidered dress featuring floral and scroll motifs, lace-effect tulle appliqués, scalloped sleeves and a high-neck collar for the Western ceremony. The embroidery took a total of 1,826 hours to complete, according to the brand.
Underneath the long-sleeve gown was a strapless column dress made up of 2,380,000 mother of pearl sequins. She completed her look with the breathtaking veil and a pair of custom Jimmy Choo heels.
As for Jonas, he wore a custom Ralph Lauren Purple Label double-breasted black tuxedo and custom patent lace-up dress shoes.
Stunning. Check out video and more images from their ceremonies below.
