19 October,2014:The Vampire Diaries star Candice Accola and The Fray guitarist Joe King are officially husband and wife.
The couple, who got engaged in May 2013, exchanged vows on Saturday in New Orleans.
Groom Joe couldn’t hide his excitement ahead of the nuptials, posting a photo on his Instagram which showed a Tom Ford suit carrier bag. “On my way,”Â he captioned the snap.
Candice’s co-stars from past and previous shows were present on the special occasion, but noticeably absent was Ian Somerhalder who didn’t want to miss the occasion to congratulate the couple.
“Candace and Joe – my brother, my sister. What a magical day this is for both of you. From the eye of the storm I am still with you in spirit!,” he wrote alongside a snap of him with film crew members.
“I am missing my home 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. ”
Candice and Joe first met at a Super Bowl event in February 2011 and went on a date thanks to Candice’s co-star Nina Dobrev.
“I was too chicken to give him my number, so Nina did,” Candice, 27, told PEOPLE in June 2013.
This is the star’s first marriage and the second for Joe, 34, who first married when he was 19 years old. He has two daughters from his first marriage, Ava and Elise.
