Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra officially made it down the aisle this past weekend on Saturday, December 1st. They even had not one, but two different weddings to celebrate their respective religions. Tons of celebrities made special appearances at their wedding and the whole thing looked like it came straight out a fairytale.
The couple is so cute together that it's easy to forget that they've actually only been together for around six months in total. They got engaged after only two months of dating. This has definitely been the year of spontaneous celebrity engagements, and Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra were one of the many couples who got engaged after only a few months of dating.
While some couples engagements were short-lived (ahem, Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson), we're so happy to see that Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas have joined the ranks of Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin. The couple is officially married and their ceremony was extra in the best way possible.
Their relationship has been an absolute whirlwind, so it can be hard to keep track of how they ended up making it to the aisle. So let's take a walk down memory lane and see just how the couple started and how the events that led to them tying the knot.
Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra first started talking all the way back in 2016. Nick actually first reached out to Priyanka via Twitter and suggested they go on a date. This led to a friendly but slightly flirty texting relationship, according to PEOPLE. However, the pair didn't meet in person until the year after.
The couple's first meeting in person was in 2017. They met at the Vanity Fair Oscars party, and Nick even got down on one knee and he recalled that he said, "I say, ‘You’re real. Where have you been all my life?' Like, loud" – foreshadowing much?
That same year, the pair also went to the Met Gala together, not as a couple but as Ralph Lauren’s guests. A week before they attended the iconic event, they met up for a drink in New York. The actress even invited the singer back to her apartment after but was disappointed when Nick didn't kiss her, according to Vogue. "It was too respectful if you ask me," Chopra told the outlet.
While none of their 2017 encounters led to a concrete romantic relationship, it clearly laid the groundwork for a whirlwind 2018.
Rumours started circulating in May 2018 that the pair was dating. They had kept in touch after their Met Gala date, but it wasn't till 2018 that the couple became more solid. In May 2018, a source told PEOPLE, "They’re flirtatious and have been hanging out and text all the time" and said that Nick and Priyanka's relationship was "very casual" – because casual usually leads to an engagement, right?
They were spotted hanging out together in public on several occasions in public, and there were even some flirty comments left on Priyanka's Instagram by Nick.
The couple made it Instagram official in June when Nick Jonas posted a picture of Priyanka accompanied by a heart-eye emoji on his story. This was the first of many Instagram PDA posts to come, but we are not complaining because the couple is cute AF.
They also met each other's families that month, proving that their relationship had gone from casual to serious real quick. Nick brought Priyanka to meet his family at his cousin's wedding, and weeks after in late June, the singer flew to India to meet the actress's family. "It’s a huge deal that Nick brought Priyanka to his cousin’s wedding," an insider told PEOPLE. "He’s dated a lot over the last couple years but it’s never been anything serious, so this is a big step."
Just two months after the pair began dating, they decided to take things to the next level and get engaged! Fans were absolutely shook because they did not see it coming at all. The couple got engaged on July 27th while they were in Greece, PEOPLE reported.
The pair made their engagement Instagram official on August 19th, a few weeks after Nick popped the question. They both posted the same photo to Instagram. Nick Jonas captioned his post, "Future Mrs. Jonas. My heart. My love" and Priyanka Chopra captioned hers, "Taken.. With all my heart and soul".
The world subsequently freaked out again, with their engagement announcement posts garnering a collective eight million likes on Instagram.
The couple celebrated their engagement and enjoyed the honeymoon phase with different dates and public outings, such as double dating with Nick's brother Joe Jonas and Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner, who are also engaged.
They also continued to show all the love to each other on Instagram, posting adorable pics together.
Proving this engagement would lead to a wedding and not a break-up, the couple reportedly got a marriage license from a courthouse in Beverly Hills, California in November, according to The Blast.
The adorable couple made their marriage official and tied the knot on December 1st. They made people all around the world jealous of their extravagant, beautiful wedding.
If you thought they couldn't get any more extra, the couple had not one, but two wedding, one honouring each of their respective religions. The two also shared photos of the wedding to their Instagram accounts. The wedding looked like an absolute dream and we're excited to see what's next for these newlyweds.
