While one might think actress Priyanka Chopra's 75-foot wedding veil was extravagant, the wedding cake was unlike anything we've seen before. Following the first ceremony at the Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur, India on December 1, the 'Quantico' star and husband Nick Jonas surprised their guests with an enormous seven-tier dessert, People reports.

According to Sandeep Khosla and Aditya Motwane, founder-owners of Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla and Motwane Entertainment & Weddings, respectively, the cake's design was inspired by the art deco style of the palace where the wedding ceremony took place and featured a “romantic visual of the couple on the crest." 

The newly wedded bride and groom, who celebrated their nuptials with both a Western and a Hindu wedding to honor both their religions, used a sword-like knife to slice into the cake.

The audience, including Jonas’ brothers Kevin (with wife Danielle), Joe (with fiancée, actress Sophie Turner), Frankie, and Chopra’s brother Siddharth, cheered the couple as they laughed and desperately tried to make the first cut.



 

While both Nick and Priyanka looked stunning in their Ralph Lauren designs, guests dined on food that blended "the classic with the eclectic," per wedding planners.

“Food from the Royal Kitchens of India (with secret recipes passed down generations) rubbed shoulders with European and American menus,” they added. “Comfort street food from around the world added to the mix.”

Speaking to People, Chopra said she loved how the ceremonies honored both of their respective backgrounds. “It melted my heart,” she said. “Being able to have two big weddings, in India, with our closest family and friends was unbelievably special.”
