It was a big surprise this weekend the couple eloped in a famous Vegas wedding chapel at a ceremony which cost just $600 and was officiated by an Elvis Presley impersonator.
DJ Diplo, 40, took to his Instagram Story to share videos of the nuptials which took place hours after the 2019 Billboard Music Awards were held in the same city and saw the Jonas brothers perform.

Elvis then instructed Sophie to kiss the ring, but as it was a candy ring, she decided to give it a big lick, which amused Joe immensely.
Elvis then told Joe: ‘You may kiss the bride’, which he did as the guests whooped and hollered.
In the couple’s marriage certificate, obtained by TMZ, the Game Of Thrones actress will now be going by the name, Sophie Belinda Jonas.
After the happy event, the newlyweds celebrated with their friends by jumping into their hotel hot tub fully-clothed, keeping the party going late into the night.

‘It’s obviously a huge adjustment for everybody, talking about us getting back together as a band and then working together so much again.
‘These incredible women have handled it so well and for each of us, individually and as a group. To get to share that with them is a really amazing thing.
‘And the family’s just getting bigger and bigger, and that’s a beautiful thing. We love including our loved ones, our family, in everything we do … our house is for everyone, our doors are always open. That is, in my opinion, how it should be.’
