Just hours after Joe Jonas hit the stage with brothers Nick and Kevin Jonas at the Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas on Wednesday, May 1, the DNCE front man hit the wedding chapel with fiancée Sophie Turner to tie the knot.

Diplo, who performed at the duo’s nuptials dressed in a white tee and a cowboy hat, gave us our first glimpse at the gorgeous bride, 23, via Instagram Stories, as she entered the building in a flow-y white jumpsuit.

“Gonna hit this wedding real quick,” Diplo captioned the video.

The DJ also shared clips of Turner walking down the aisle in a long white veil with a white bouquet that included flashing blue lights at its center to a live performance of “Speechless” by Dan + Shay.

Jonas, 29, eagerly awaited his bride wearing a gray tux with a white flower on his lapel as his brothers Nick and Kevin stood by his side.

Other celebrities, including Khalid, were also in attendance at the big event. (Most of the guests had been at the Billboard Music Awards earlier in the evening.) Sister-in-law Priyanka Chopra reportedly served as the impromptu maid of honor. Turner's mom didn't get to witness her big walk down the aisle, but she did give her seal of approval before getting married. “Sophie did call me before,” Turner's mother Sally told the Daily Mail. “She said, ‘Mum, I’m getting married in Vegas.’”

A call like that might startle some parents, but Momma Turner couldn't be happier about. “I am absolutely delighted and so is my husband Andrew,” she added.

According to court records obtained by People, the Game of Thrones actress and the Grammy nominee, 29, applied for a marriage license before their ceremony Wednesday, which took place at the Chapel L'Amour inside A Little White Wedding Chapel. (So yes, this is an official marriage.) Daily Mail's report suggests the entire affair cost $600.

The Elvis impersonator who officiated their wedding, Jesse Grice, told TMZ that he was booked one week before the wedding but was not told who he would be marrying, so this surprise wedding was a little more planned than we thought. He also said that Joe and Sophie booked the entire chapel from 8 p.m. to midnight so there wouldn't be any competing weddings. Grice sang "Viva Las Vegas" for the couple after they tied the knot on what would have been, as TMZ pointed out, the 52nd anniversary of the marriage between Elvis and Priscilla Presley.

Their vows were reportedly simple and sweet: “I promise you, I will never leave you. I will love and trust you, all the days of my life,” they said. “In sickness and in health... forever and ever.”

People reports that the pair exchanged ring pops for wedding bands before posing with Elvis glasses in the Chapel’s famed pink Cadillac for wedding photos.

Joe and Turner revealed they were engaged in October 2017 with a matching photo of her hand outfitted with a huge pear-shaped diamond resting on his on Instagram.

The Dark Phoenix star explained her decision to get engaged so young to Rolling Stone earlier this year: “I think once you’ve found the right person, you just know. I feel like I’m much older a soul than I am in age. I feel like I’ve lived enough life to know. I’ve met enough guys to know—I’ve met enough girls to know. I don’t feel 22. I feel like 27, 28.”

The Vegas ceremony comes as a huge surprise considering Joe told James Corden in March that his wedding was going down this summer.

He also revealed during an April appearance on the Zach Sang Show that they will be having a ceremony in France. “I mean, we are getting married in France, so a lot of Coors Light is necessary,” he said. “Not hard, really, to get that, but we needed to make sure that was going to happen."

Not to mention, Turner has previously announced that her Game of Thrones' costar Maisie Williams would serve as a bridesmaid, and Williams was not in attendance Wednesday night.

Looks like the pair will be having multiple ceremonies after all (just like Nick and his wife Priyanka Chopra)? “I would say stick to one. One and done," Joe previously joked to Corden.
