Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas surprised everyone with an unexpected wedding ceremony in Las Vegas. The couple who have been engaged since 2017 seems to have taken the opportunity to get married while in Las Vegas for the 2019 Billboard Music Awards, as they went more or less straight from the award show to a local wedding chapel. Earlier in the day, the couple had obtained their marriage license, so it seems as if they had planned the surprise wedding at least for a little while. The Game Of Thrones actress wore a white ensemble that she spruced up with a blinking wedding bouquet and a veil. Joe opted for an elegant, grey suit for the big day.
The wedding might have come as a surprise to many, but Sophie and Joe were surrounded by lots of celebrities such as famous DJ Diplo, singer Khalid, and the county music duo Dan + Shay who performed during the ceremony. Several other friends had accompanied the now husband and wife from the Billboard Music Awards to continue the festivities with their surprise wedding. It was Diplo who was the first to break the news of the wedding as he shared videos on his Instagram story showing Sophie and Joe entering a chapel in Las Vegas, captioning it "Gonna hit up this wedding real quick".
As reported by ET Online, Diplo then continued sharing his love for the couple with the world, by uploading a video of Sophie walking down the aisle towards an Elvis impersonator, and later also the loved up couple reciting their wedding vows. Sophie and Joe have been engaged for some time now, and have hinted at a summer wedding, but it appears as if they could not wait any longer.
The Las Vegas wedding reportedly cost around $600, and the intimate affair stands in stark contrast to Joe's brother Nick Jonas' wedding to Priyanka Chopra last year. That three-day affair is rumored to have cost around $600,000, which would perhaps have been hard to top had they wanted to.
Now, there is the possibility that Joe and Sophie did not want to do the big, expensive wedding, and chose this quickie Vegas wedding instead. However, there is also a chance that they will also do a more traditional wedding later on, with all of their family and friends in attendance, and fans are hoping for a Game Of Thrones themed party.
