Last month, Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas pulled off the best surprise celebrity wedding yet. After attending the annual Billboard Music Awards on May 1, the couple exchanged vows in front of an intimate crowd at the Little White Chapel in Las Vegas. Now, their sister-in-law Priyanka Chopra has shared an insight into the big event.
“That was so fun. It was so fun! And it’s so Jophie, I call them Jophie,” Chopra told Access. “It’s like, trust them to do that. That is Jophie! And they’re going to have this amazing, beautiful [second] wedding obviously. Was I not supposed to say that?” The couple are due to exchange vows (again) in a ceremony this summer in France.
According to Chopra there was no official dress code for the evening, because guests were literally invited to attend during the Billboard Music Awards. “So it was really funny. We were at the Billboards. Joe, I think, had this idea that he wanted to do this… and he had these little black cards that we all got,” Chopra explained. “We were like, 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’.”
Scenes from the wedding were streamed on Diplo’s Instagram feed, which showed country stars Dan + Shay playing their hit Speechless before the ceremony. “So we had Diplo, DJ Khalid, they were really sweet,” Chopra said. “Diplo Instagram Lived the whole thing, it was awesome. It was so funny! I mean, we were driving around in this pink Hummer limo. I was outside the window. It was just epic. I had long hair extensions that I thought [were] going to fly out of the window. It was that kind of night – a Jophie kind of night.”
Chopra – who acted as Turner’s maid of honour – married Nick Jonas earlier this year in a lavish three-day event in India. Chopra said the very different ceremonies were representative of the two brothers’ different personalities. “It’s exactly who and what we stand for,” she said. “Nick and Joe both are so different but are best friends, and that’s what’s beautiful about their relationship. And you can see that in the weddings as well. It was very reflective of the two of them and us as couples, you know?” Here’s hoping the second celebration in the coming months is just as fun.
