Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas’s wedding was picture perfect by the looks of Instagram, but turns out not every moment went as smooth as it seemed.

Chopra Jonas recalled recently on Good Morning America about a panic attack she had moments before walking down the aisle.

"Right before I was supposed to walk down the aisle—I remember them putting the veil on me. The veil was like 75 feet—I was like, 'I’m going to strain my neck muscles like the mother of dragons,'" she said. "But I had a freak-out moment when I was standing right behind the curtains and they were going to tell me when to walk out and the music was going to start playing,"

She eventually calmed down when she set her eyes on her fiancé. “I just started having a panic attack and then the doors opened and I saw him,” she said. “And I cannot forget that moment."

Despite that small case of cold feet, the two seemed to enjoy their many wedding celebrations. (The couple had four receptions.) But this bride is officially over it: "In India you have so many people," Chopra Jonas said. "My mother was like, ‘How can I not invite like my jeweler to the wedding?’ And I was like ‘Mom, we’re trying to keep it small!’”

She continued, "So we had to do a bunch of receptions for everyone and family and friends. I was just weddinged out by the last one."

Luckily, these two are finally getting back to some normalcy and settling into married life. "There's a big difference between a husband and a fiancé," the newlywed said. "I didn't understand the gravity of that when I got married. But it’s a good thing to be married to a good husband.”

Since tying the knot, she and her “good husband” have been getting back to work but also having a little fun. After a brief minimoon to Oman, Jonas and Chopra Jonas celebrated their nuptials with an official honeymoon in the Caribbean.
