After Joe Jonas performed with his siblings at the Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas, he and fiancée Sophie Turner eloped! Live streamed on Instagram by Diplo, who also DJ’d the ceremony, the Game of Thrones actress was married to the Jonas Brother in classic Sin City style, via an Elvis impersonator.
For those wondering if this Vegas chapel wedding was a big prank, ET confirmed that the couple obtained their official marriage license earlier in the day.
Now, this is not exactly how most fans of the couple saw 23-year-old Sophie saying “I do” to Joe, 29, however, the couple has been engaged for almost two years, and maybe after the massive three day wedding of Nick Jonas and wife Priyanka Chopra, they wanted something quick and easy. You can see in Diplo’s video that both Nick and Kevin Jonas, along with their respective wives, were in attendance for the surprise nuptials at the Vegas chapel.
Sophie wore a classic white wedding dress with a flowing veil while Joe wore a grey suit with a white flower in his lapel. Their Elvis impersonator officiant donned a red suit with the classic aviator glasses, and had Joe and Sophie read back the traditional vows before all their famous friends and family in attendance. The bride and groom exchanged ring-pops, and said “I think God he gave me you” to one another and kissed each other’s hands.
While the newly married couple was then serenaded by Dan + Shay singing their hit “Speechless,” fans on Twitter absolutely lost their mind from the surprise wedding news.
Based on the video available, it’s hard to tell if parents or extended family that weren’t already in town for the Billboard Awards were at the ceremony. Since the couple has been together since 2016, seeking each other’s family approval is likely something Sophie and Joe did when they first got engaged some time ago.
Sophie told ET that she really enjoyed being in a relationship with someone that was also working in the industry. She said, “I think the key is to remember that it’s just like any other relationship and if you’re in Hollywood or if you’re in Africa, it’s all the same. Just love and be loved.”
