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 arrangement complementedChopra show-stopping gown, ahand-beaded and embroidered creation by Ralph Laurenwith a stunning 75-foot long veil.
Jonas’s boutonniere was made from a few of the same varieties: nerine, tuberose and Salvadora pearl berries.

Per the bride’s request, the names of her fiancé and her parents, Ashok and Madhu, were sewn into the waistband of her skirt in her native language.
