Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas eloped in Las Vegas after the Billboard Awards.
In photos and videos posted to Instagram by guests including the DJ Diplo, Sophie and Joe can be seen getting married at The Little White Wedding Chapel.
Joe, 29, waited at the altar with brothers Nick and Kevin by his side until Sophie, 23, wearing a white jumpsuit and lace veil, was led down the aisle by an unknown man. Priyanka Chopra, married to Nick Jonas, served as maid of honour.
After Sophie and Joe said their vows and were officially declared husband and wife by an Elvis impersonator, the couple exchanged Ringpop lollies instead of real rings, and kissed.

The Elvis impersonator serenaded them with Viva Las Vegas as they left the chapel.
According to reports the couple booked the chapel on The Strip a week ago, but virtually nobody knew what the couple, who got engaged in 2017, had in store.
Bruce Willis and Demi Moore and Frank Sinatra and Mia Farrow are some of the high-profile couples who married at The Little White Wedding Chapel before them.
After the ceremony Sophie and Joe returned to their accommodation – presumably a luxurious penthouse hotel suite – where they jumped into a jacuzzi in their clothes.

It’s understood the entire wedding cost around $600. It’s already a bargain, and then consider that Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra’s three-day wedding festival in India in December last year is estimated to have cost more than AUD $850,000.
Maybe Sophie and Joe felt Nick and Priyanka’s extravagant wedding was too hard an act to follow. Maybe seeing the excessive expense and planning required for Nick and Priyanka’s nuptials made them want to do the exact opposite.
Whatever the reason, it’s very cool for a celebrity couple to go so low-key. Respect.
