Sophie Turner & Joe Jonas' Engagement Party Included A Jonas Brothers Reunion & Other Famous Guests In NYC — PHOTOS
In mid-October, the House of Stark revealed that a new member would soon join its midst. This means, of course, that Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas got engaged, and the couple held a party to celebrate on Saturday, Nov. 5. According to E! News, the two stars invited friends and family for an intimate dinner at the exclusive restaurant MAMO in New York City and out for dancing after, and it seemed to be a fun-filled evening for all in attendance. Guests included Joe Jonas' fellow DNCE band members Cole Whittle and JinJoo Lee, as well as fellow celebs like model Ashley Graham and Ansel Elgort.
The most important appearances, however, might have been Kevin and Nick Jonas, who showed up to wish their brother well. The family reunion was well documented in pictures from an event photo booth, and the engagement party was a rare chance for the Jonas Brothers to get the whole group back Jonas and Turner haven't shared much from the party on their own social media, but friends and family took the opportunity to wish the couple well online with the hashtag #Jophie. Kevin Jonas attended the evening with his wife Danielle Deleasa, and posted a series of the black and white photographs from the onsite booth to Instagram. These included a picture of the three Jonas brothers reunited at last.
The caption read, "Celebrating love with family and friends!” Nick Jonas also shared a pictures from the event to Instagram, and in addition to posing with his former brothers and bandmates, his picture includes the youngest and often forgotten member of the fam, Frankie Jonas.
Nick Jonas appeared in lots of pictures from the evening, and he can also be spotted with DNCE's JinJoo and other Jophie pals. The Jonas Brothers reunion wasn't the only moment from the engagement party that will make fans emotional, as the memories and wishes from friends were so adorable. In one Instagram picture, TV producer Jeff Kaligheri, who reportedly introduced the couple, wrote a nice message for the two stars in addition to his pictures from the night.
He wrote in the caption:
“Love these two people and when I introduced them last year I did it knowing that @sophiet has one of the biggest hearts in the world & @joejonas would respect her and recognize her for how amazing she really is & would be smart enough not to let her go once they met. I also knew she would immediately realize how incredible & rare a find that he is, absolutely one of the good ones, & she was smart enough to say YES lol."
In addition to the family photo, Nick posted plenty of Snapchat videos of the festivities. In one, Sophie and Joe can be seen holding dramatic sparklers while they dance and in another they shout along to "Wannabe" by the Spice Girls. It's clear that this couple loves to dance, and if these Snaps are any indication, the wedding will be equally lit. (Meaning literally, like these flaming champagne bottles.)
According to US Weekly, one of the highlights of the evening was the musical performances, including a rendition of "Cake By the Ocean" sung by Joe Jonas for his future bride, and a friend covering Meatloaf's "I Would Do Anything For Love." Nick Jonas can also seen snatching the mic to sing his single "Let Me Love You" on a friend's Snapchat at one point in the evening.
Mamo restaurant apparently pulled out all the stops for the couple. E! News reports that the engaged celebs shut down the restaurant for the private event, and the whole place was romantically lit with candles. Guests were able to dine on specialty foods like truffle pizza and truffle ravioli (casual) and the drinks were elegant as well. In between dishes, family and friends reportedly gave moving toasts for the newly-engaged couple.
Turner and Joe Jonas were first romantically linked in in November, 2016, when the couple seemed comfortable together at the MTV EMAs. The couple didn't make their relationship Instagram official until January of the next year, when Turner posted a picture of Jonas on what seemed to be a romantic outing in Miami. In an interview in July, she confirmed the relationship but reiterated a desire to keep things private.
The soon-to-be-married couple announced their engagement in a joint Instagram post on October 15th. Turner's caption read "I said yes", while Joe's said "She said yes." The relationship definitely turned serious rather quickly, but while the engagement came as a surprise, friends, family, and fans flooded their matching posts with support.
These engagement party shenanigans prove the Jophie have tons of fun together. It's clear that Turner fits in well with the Jonas fam, and they can't wait for the wedding to make it official. If this party is any indication, fans can be looking forward to yet another Jonas Brother reunion at the wedding.
