A few hours later, Priyanka treated her followers to a dreamy carousel of photos that seemed to be from a pre-wedding celebration in Mumbai, Maharashtra, which sits on the West Coast of India. “The only way to do this… with Family and God,” she wrote along with the cheery snaps. “Thank you all for your wishes and blessings”. The future newlyweds put their love on display in the photos, which show them posing in customary attire both with each other and beloved family members. Hanging behind them was an oversized-golden emblem of the letters “N” and “P”, almost melded together, clearly representing their names.

The pair participated in a Roka ceremony, which is the traditional way to mark an engagement in India. After the incredibly significant ritual, a couple generally sets their wedding date, though Nick and Priyanka’s has yet to be confirmed. Roka is considered to be the first significant step toward marriage, and is generally followed by a big engagement party. This makes it likely that the couple will throw an epic bash with their family and friends in the evening.
