October 18th, 2014, was a magical day for Candice Accola, who plays Caroline Forbes on The Vampire Diaries, and Joe King, the guitarist for The Fray, because this was their wedding day in New Orleans!

In attendance at the nuptials were costars and BFFs Michael Trevino, Kat Graham, Kayla Ewell, Paul Wesley, Claire Holt, and Julie Plec! Unfortunately due to his shooting schedule, Ian Somerhalder couldn’t make it to the wedding celebration, but he did post the following sending his love to them on his Instagram page.

Candice and Joe- my brother, my sister. What a magical day this is for both of you,” Somerhalder wrote. “From the eye of the storm I am still with you in spirit! I am missing my homes state of Louisiana and my city, the great city of New Orleans. Sending you so much love from my shoot in ATL- I’m working hard & I wish I could be there physically, but we have the rest of our lives to celebrate. I love you guys! So. Much.

Julie Plec tweeted about the special day writing “Vampire Wedding. Spectacular!”

The bride was stunning and beautiful in her Monique Lhuillier wedding gown, and the groom was handsome in his Tom Ford tux. And what New Orleans French Quarter wedding wouldn’t be complete without the traditional line parade in the streets? That’s exactly how they kicked off their Mr. and Mrs. reception celebration, complete with parasol and cane!

Candice, 27, wrote about her special night saying, “Officially Mr. and Mrs. King! Best night ever!” and Joe, 34, chimed in “My wife, she makes me wanna dance!” And dance they did, surrounded by friends and family as they danced under a rustic tree setting complete with chandeliers!

The happy couple started dating after they met in February, 2011, at a Superbowl, where Nina Dobrev helped the couple get together by giving Joe Candice’s phone number because she was “too chicken” to do it herself! Joe popped the question two years latter on their Italian vacation in May, 2013. In addition to being a newlywed, Candice is also a stepmom to Joe’s two daughters, Ava and Elise.
