Sophie Turner is now officially Sophie Jonas following her surprise Vegas Wedding to Joe Jonas on May 2. According to the couple's official marriage license, the Game of Thrones actress chose to change her name from Sophie Belinda Turner to Sophie Belinda Jonas after tying the knot.
According to court documents, the couple applied for the marriage license the morning of their wedding day, and the nuptials weren't as spontaneous as they seemed. Their officiant, Jesse Grice (who is also an Elvis impersonator) told TMZ that the Jonases booked the entire venue, the Little White Wedding Chapel, a week in advance.
Sophie, Joe, his brothers Nick and Kevin, and a handful of celebrity friends headed straight to the Vegas chapel following the Billboard Music Awards. The bride wore a Bevza silk jumpsuit and Loeffler Randall Gold Penny Knot Mules.
Diplo was first to share the news via his Instagram Stories, sharing a clip of marie claire Australia's June cover star entering Chapel L'Amour inside A Little White Wedding Chapel with Jonas and his brothers. "Gonna hit up this wedding real quick," Diplo captioned the clip. In other clips, Sophie can be seen walking down an aisle and holding a bouquet.
The performer also went live on his Instagram story, showing the couple reciting their vows to one another in front of an Elvis impersonator. Their Elvis impersonator officiant donned a red suit with the classic aviator glasses, and had Joe and Sophie read back the traditional vows before all their famous friends and family in attendance. The bride and groom exchanged ring-pops and said “I think God he gave me you” to one another and kissed each other’s hands.
A source told People that the Jonas Brother and marie claire Australia June cover star wed in the US so that their marriage is legitimate when they say "I do" later in the year in France. “A lot of my happiness is to do with the person I’ve fallen in love with,” the Game of Thrones actress tells marie claire Australia.
"They had to get married in the States to make it legal, but the wedding is still in Europe,” the source said.
Per the US Embassy & Consulates in France, “At least one of the parties to be married must have resided in France for at least forty days immediately preceding the marriage. This precludes a wedding in cases where both parties are only visiting for a short stay”; furthermore, “In France, a religious ceremony does not constitute a legal marriage.” Because of such residency restrictions, international couples often have a legal wedding before a religious or symbolic ceremony in France.
