Revisiting Priyanka-Nick's love story, on their first wedding anniversary
It was on this very day that Priyanka Chopra and American singer Nick Jonas tied the knot in a dreamy affair at the Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur. Ever since, fans can't seem to get enough of their sizzling chemistry, adorable public appearances, and fairytale like pictures. On their first wedding anniversary, we take a look at the couple's unforgettably amazing love story.
Priyanka and Nick met for the first time in February, 2017, at the Vanity Fair Oscars Party, where the 27-year-old singer reportedly got down on his knees, and said to Priyanka, "You are real. Where have you been all my life?" In May, the same year, much to paparazzi's delight, they showed up at the Met Gala together, for designer Ralph Lauren.
According to Vogue, the duo didn't see each other for an entire year, following the Met Gala 2017 appearance. They finally met again at the subsequent Met Gala in 2018, and made headlines! Thereafter, speculations about the two dating each other spurred as they kept posting suggestive pictures and flirtatious comments on each other's social media accounts.
Interestingly, Nick proposed to Priyanka on her 36th birthday in Crete, Greece. "I got down on one knee, and I said: Will you make me the happiest man in the world and marry me?" Nick once told Vogue. "No joke, she took about 45 seconds. Forty five seconds of silence," he added. No points for guessing, it was a yes from Priyanka.
On August 18, 2018, Priyanka and Nick had a traditional Roka ceremony in Mumbai, which was attended by their respective families. The two then made their first public appearance as a couple in September, 2018, during the New York Fashion Week. And, they got married on this day in Jodhpur, according to Hindu as well as Christian rituals. Happy anniversary, Priyanka and Nick!
One of the most special things that our relationship has given us is a merging of families who love and respect each other's faiths and cultures. And so planning our wedding with an amalgamation of both was so so amazing. An important part of the pre wedding rituals for the girl in an Indian wedding is the Mehendi. Once again we made it our own and it was an afternoon that kicked off the celebrations in the way we both dreamed. @nickjonas
