When It Comes to Weddings, Each Jonas Brother Has a Style

A decade in the past, when the Jonas Brothers began pumping out the catchy tunes that launched them into the pop music stratosphere, every famously wore a purity ring.

Now all three have traded their purity rings for wedding ceremony bands. But whereas the purity bands have been matching, the weddings that led to the marriage rings — together with the edible Ring Pop that Joe Jonas reportedly accepted final week at his marriage to the actress Sophie Turner — have been vastly completely different.

Joe, 29, the swaggering star Jonas, married Ms. Turner, a “Game of Thrones” star, May 1 in a 15-minute ceremony on the Chapel L’Amour, a room in A Little White Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas. Jesse Garon, the pompadour-wearing Elvis impersonator, officiated. (In a coincidence, Elvis Presley and Priscilla Beaulieu were also married on May 1, 1967, also in Vegas.)

Mr. Garon, who performed more than 600 Vegas weddings last year and was previously unfamiliar with the Jonases, said the wedding differed from what he’s accustomed to mostly in size. “They had a really huge group of 40 people,” he said. “Most people have five or 10.”

Also memorable was the end of the ceremony. “They knew how to have fun,” Mr. Garon said. “When we started singing ‘Viva Las Vegas,’ they got into it. Those brothers could sing O.K.”

If a second wedding ceremony is in the works for Joe and the newest Mrs. Jonas, they will be following in the footsteps of his younger brother. But possibly with fewer sequins, and dresses, and everything.

Ms. Chopra’s wedding dress for the Christian ceremony was custom made by Ralph Lauren and covered in more than two million mother-of- pearl sequins. Topping it was a 75-foot veil that could have doubled as the world’s largest and fanciest tarp.

Nick wore a black double-breasted tuxedo, also custom-made by Ralph Lauren. For the Hindu ceremony, Ms. Chopra wore a hand-embroidered fire-engine red lehenga with hand-cut organza flowers, French silk knots and crystals, according to the Indian designer Sabyaschi’s Instagram post. The groom accessorized his gold hand-quilted silk sherwani with a diamond necklace and Christian Louboutin shoes.

Kevin’s brothers were by his side. As his bride approached in a Vera Wang lace and tulle gown, Kevin, wearing a black tuxedo, fought back tears.

He couldn’t have known at the time that his wedding, with its enchanted forest theme, would one day seem tame compared with his brothers’. And neither did his brother Joe during a toast to the newlyweds at the reception.

“This is crazy,” he said of the elaborate setting. “I can’t top this.”
