They’re married! Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra are officially husband and wife.

Four months after shocking the world with the news of their engagement, the couple tied the knot in lavish Indian ceremony at the Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur, Rajasthan, according to People.

The 36-year-old “Quantico” actress and the 26-year-old singer married in custom Ralph Lauren ensembles. The entire wedding party — which included Chopra’s brother, Siddharth, and Jonas’ three brothers, Joe, Kevin, and their little brother, Frankie — also wore custom outfits by the designer.

Jonas’ father, Paul Kevin Jonas Sr., officiated the Christian ceremony where the couple reportedly exchanged classic Chopard wedding bands.

On Saturday afternoon, the couple took to Instagram to share a few photos from pre-wedding day festivities and released a joint statement regarding their happy weekend.

“One of the most special things that our relationship has given us is a merging of families that love and respect each other’s faiths and cultures,” the couple wrote. “And so planning our wedding with an amalgamation of both was so so amazing. An important part for the girl in an Indian wedding is the Mehendi.”

The statement continued, “Once again we made it our own and it was an afternoon that kicked off the celebrations in the way we both dreamed.”

Today’s affair marks the first of two wedding ceremonies the now-married couple will have.

Following the Ralph Lauren-designed Christian ceremony, the couple will continue their wedding weekend with a Hindu ceremony on Sunday.

“It is super important to Priyanka to have an Indian ceremony that honors her heritage and culture, just as it’s important to also have a Western ceremony that honors Nick’s Christian upbringing,” a source told People ahead of the big wedding weekend. “They are doing both.”
