Prior to officially becoming a member of the Jonas Family, actress Sophie Turner made a very important call–to her parents.

The Game of Thrones standout made it a point to dial her mother on Wednesday, May 1. “Sophie did call me before,” her mother Sally told the Daily Mail after the news broke. “She said, ‘Mum, I’m getting married in Vegas.’”

The proud mom added, “I am absolutely delighted and so is my husband Andrew.”

The couple, along with the other Jonas Brothers (Nick Jonas and Kevin Jonas) and their significant others (Priyanka Chopra and Danielle Jonas), were all in Vegas this week for the Billboard Music Awards on Wednesday night. Jonas and Turner obtained their marriage license in Clark County earlier that day before walking the red carpet.

Following the awards show, the couple made their way to A Little White Wedding Chapel, where they were supported by family members and friends. DJ Diplo ended up live-streaming portions of the ceremony, and the brothers played an integral role in the wedding by standing beside Joe on his special day.

Turner had Chopra serve as her maid of honor, while country duo Dan + Shay performed their smash wedding song, “Speechless.” Perhaps the most “Sin City” aspect of their entire surprise wedding was the couple inviting an Elvis impersonator to officiate the ceremony.

It’s still speculated that the couple will wed in France this summer. Actress Maisie Williams, who plays Turner’s sibling on the HBO series, previously confirmed she’s a maid of honor in the wedding.
