While other celebrities were busy getting ready to head to one of the many after parties following yesterday’s Billboard Music Awards, Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas had other plans.
After the awards ceremony, the couple headed to Chapel L’Amour in Las Vegas to exchange vows in an intimate wedding ceremony in front of a handful of family and friends In true Las Vegas elopement style, the pair were wed by an Elvis impersonator.
Nick Jonas and wife Priyanka Chopra, Diplo and fellow Game of Thrones star, Maisie Williams were rumoured to have been in attendance.
Diplo shared videos of the newlyweds on his Instagram story. “I thee wed – and I love you,” Turner could be heard saying in one of the videos.
Turner wore a fashion-forward white silk jumpsuit to the impromptu wedding. The piece was rumoured to be by BEVZA â€“ a Ukranian fashion label that is well-known for their Instagram-famous pearl crop top. Turner paired the understated look with Loeffler Randall’s gold Penny Knot mules. As for the wedding rings, Turner and Jonas stuck to the Las Vegas theme and exchanged Ring Pops.

Save the dates were sent out late last year inviting guests to Turner and Jonas’ wedding in the South of France. According to sources, the impromptu wedding in Las Vegas was done out of legal necessity. As People points out, the US Embassy & Consulates in France states that a “religious ceremony does not constitute a legal marriage” for couples who are not residents of the country.
So while it is highly likely that more formal nuptials for Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas will still take place in the south of France, it’s fair to say the pair haven’t planned as many weddings and receptions as Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra. Jonas and Chopra’s wedding in India included two ceremonies, numerous events, and dinner receptions in various cities.
The wedding also means that all three Jonas brothers are now officially off the market.
