Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas Tie the Knot at Surprise Vegas Ceremony
There are what seems like endless celebrations among celebrities every year, especially with a recent survey showing that 71% of people enjoy celebrating their birthday, no matter their age. But some of the most awe-inspiring celebrity celebrations are weddings. Generally extravagant and a major occasion, weddings are a big deal for those in the limelight. However, Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas have recently tied the knot and it wasn’t a big ordeal, like many people expected it to be.
Following the Billboard Music Awards, Tuner and Jonas decided to had to a Las Vegas chapel and make their marriage official. ABout 40% of brides and grooms look for unusual venues that better reflect their personality, clearly, Turner and Jonas are one of them. Like most Vegas weddings, the ceremony was officiated by an Elvis impersonator and took place at Chapel L’Amour inside A Little White Wedding Chapel.
According to a rep for Turner, “We can confirm Sophie and Joe were married in Las Vegas…”
The surprise wedding ceremony was documented on Diplo’s Instagram live feed and Khalid was also in attendance.
According to the video and witness statements, Sophie walked down the aisle in a white silk jumsuit, complete with a fingertip-length veil. Joe was accompanied by his brothers, Kevin and Nick, who stood in as his groomsmen, all wearing matching grey suits.
Their vows were certainly sweet, as they told each other, “I promise you, I will never leave you. I will love and trust you, all the days of my life. In sickness and in health… forever and ever.”
And after their vows were said and Nick handed Sophie her flowers, which featured a blue flashing light, the couple exchanged ring pops in place of traditional wedding bands.
With the ceremony complete, the new Mr. and Mrs. Jonas had a quick photo op on a pink Cadillac in the drive-thru chapel before celebrating with friends, family, and other celebrities.
The newlyweds have been a favorite famous couple since they became exclusive in 2016. They have both made names for themselves in Hollywood, which originated more than 121 years ago. Sophie has a leading role on Game of Thrones and Joe is best known for his part in his band with his brothers as well as TV shows and movies. And after dating for less than a year, Joe proposed to Sophie in October 2017, with a cute Instagram announcement from both parties.
But the Vegas wedding came as such a surprise because both Turner and Jonas have opened up about upcoming wedding plans, with a date set in the summer and plans to marry in France.
Talking about the wedding planning, Joe mentioned on the Zach Sang Show, “We got most of it figured out already. There’s parts of it that I think just naturally are stressful, but you just have to allow yourself to enjoy the fact that you’re doing this. It’s not really about all the little minor details, it’s going to be great and things are gonna go wrong, but I enjoy planning stuff.”
And while it’s true that between 40% and 50% of U.S. marriages result in divorce, with seemingly increased numbers among celebrities, this couple seems to have everything needed for a strong relationship. And although it’s currently unclear whether or not the France wedding is still going to take place, fans of Joe and Sophie are certainly happy for the newly married couple.
