News came in just a couple days ago that while musical artist Joe Jonas and Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner were in Las Vegas for the 2019 Billboard Music Awards, the two managed to tie the knot in Las Vegas. They got their marriage license on the 1st of May and that’s when we assume the two officiated their married life. Sophie Turner’s been walking around town in Los Angeles wearing a “Just Married” sash on top of her white shirt; this must be more than enough to substantiate all the marriage rumors.
How did we catch wind of this? Well, post award show, Diplo’s social media stories started to become ever so much more interesting. The first glimpses of the couple’s surprise nuptials can be found on Diplo’s Instagram stories where footage of 23 year old in a bridal get up with a veil (Sophie Turner) is seen walking down the aisle. The ceremony was conducted by a marriage officiator who had an uncanny resemblance to Elvis Presley and the wedding performances were done by Dan + Shay who also performed their infamous song “Speechless.”
The wedding was far from traditional and surely far from what we’ve seen go on with Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra not too long ago. The couple got married on a hitch in Vegas and when it came time to exchange wedding rings, instead of exchanging actual rings, they exchanged ring pops instead. That’s surely untraditional but also not at all unexpected.
Before the wedding went down, back at the 2019 Billboard Music Awards, Joe Jonas was on stage with his brothers Nick Jonas and Kevin Jonas when the trio performed their first hit song back together as the Jonas Brothers called “Sucker.” In this moment, Sophie Turner was found seated up ahead cheering on her man alongside her now sisters-in-law (Priyanka Chopra and Danielle Jonas) who were supporting their own respective men as well.
Here’s some fresh footage of the ceremony recovered by E! on their official Instagram account.
This wedding comes after over a year and a half of having been engaged. The couple got engaged in the October of 2017. On the occasion of the commitment, Sophie Turner said to Marie Claire last year that
I’m still like, Holy s–t! I’m engaged. There’s this weird misconception that being married is the greatest thing that’ll ever happen to you. But I’ve always found that my career is something I work for, and when I achieve something, there’s a sense that this is the greatest thing I’ll do in my life. It’s lovely to be engaged. Not like I achieved anything, but I found my person, like I’d find a house that I love and want to stay in forever. There’s a sense of peace that comes with finding your person. But there’s a drive that comes with your career.”
While Joe Jonas’s brothers were all in the city when he and Sophie Turner tied the knot, several other guests who would’ve been expected to attend the couple’s nuptials were missing. Sophie Turner’s best friend and Game of Thrones co-star Maisie Williams was nowhere to be seen (she’s someone who we expected to be brides maid or maid of honor). That in mind, we can expect that the couple may come back home and host a more official and proper wedding ceremony or reception with all their loved ones, family, and friends.
