"Game Of Thrones" Star Sophie Turner Marries Joe Jonas
Fans of superstar actress Sophie Turner and musician Joe Jonas are celebrating after a recent announcement, though it has nothing to do with movies nor music; the couple wed in a secret Las Vegas ceremony that's only recently been revealed to the public, causing rabid legions of fans to go crazy in celebration.
Following the Billboard Music Awards, the A-list couple headed to Chapel L'Amour inside A Little White Wedding Chapel for a surprise wedding ceremony that was - in true Las Vegas fashion - officiated by an Elvis impersonator. Fans weren't kept up to date on the love ceremony between the two, though the cat was eventually let out of the bag by Diplo, a popular DJ who was present at the ceremony and recorded parts of it with his phone.
According to Good Morning America, the ceremony was only revealed because Diplo was live-streaming the elaborate event on Instagram Live. "[The wedding] was very reflective of the two of them and us as couples, you know?" Actress and wedding-attendee Priyanka Chopra Jones, who is married to Nick Jonas, told GMA.
According to Chopra, the ceremony had no dress code, though the event was attended by a number of major celebrities whose fashionable outfits routinely make tabloid headlines. "We were randomly inviting our friends, like people that we met. We were like, 'alright, we're going to set up this wedding now, we're going to the chapel right from here, and please arrive, please arrive," GMA quoted her as saying.
The evening was culminated with a celebratory drive through Las Vegas in a pink Hummer limo, wherein the couple was joined by Chopra and the brother of the groom, Nick Jonas. Chopra's own wedding to a Jonas brother was well-documented by People back when it occurred in December of 2018, with the traditional Indian ceremony being one of the most-watched Hollywood ceremonies of that year.
Sophie Turner, 23, and Joe Jonas, 29, have both been in the spotlight from the earliest days of their youth; the former starlet made a name for herself playing Sansa Stark on the hit HBO-television series "Game of Thrones," which has claimed the mantle of the world's most popular television show. The series is presently culminating with its eighth season, though critics have panned the show's recent performance.
Joe Jonas gained prominence as a Disney star alongside of his brothers, forming the famous Jonas Brothers band which was immensely popular with young teens. The brothers still occasionally perform together to this day, having performed their new single "Sucker" earlier in the day before the wedding ceremony began. The wedding of the A-list couple is one of the most notable between two young Hollywood stars to have occurred in recent years.
The newly wedded couple, who made sure to take out wedding insurance to safeguard their day, decided to stray from traditional weddings in a number of ways; not only was their Las Vegas wedding officiated by an Elvis impersonator, but the couple also refused traditional wedding bands, instead exchanging candy Ring Pops.
Portions of the wedding video recorded by Diplo are publicly accessible on Instagram through E! News, though only limited footage of the brief event exists. At time of press, the video has already garnered well over 3.5 million views, making what was a private ceremony into a beloved public spectacle.
