He and his girlfriend got engaged back in May of 2013, but now Joe King, guitarist for The Fray, has finally said “I do.” E! Online reports that he tied the knot with Vampire Diaries star Candice Accola in New Orleans on Saturday.
Joe posted a photo of himself and Candice dancing together on their wedding day, captioning the photo, “My wife, she makes me wanna dance.” Candice, who plays Caroline Forbes on The Vampire Diaries, posted a photo of the two kissing on her Instagram, with the caption, “Officially Mr. and Mrs. King! Best night ever!”
According to E!, the two tied the knot at the Montegut House in the Big Easy, walking down the aisle to famed New Orleans musician Trombone Shorty. Shorty was a featured musician on Joe’s 2013 solo release. Then, the two paraded down New Orleans’ famed Bourbon Street, leading guests to the reception, where they celebrated with Candice’s Vampire Diaries co-stars Paul Wesley, Kat Graham and Michael Trevino. Star Ian Somerhalder couldn’t make it, but he sent the happy couple his best wishes on Instagram.
Joe, who has two children from his first marriage, first met Candice at a Super Bowl event in 2011 and proposed to her in Florence, Italy, last May. The band wrapped up a tour in support of their most recent album Helios in Switzerland this past week.
Back in December of 2013, Joe told ABC News Radio that his New Year’s resolution was to plan his wedding, so it’s been in the works for quite some time.
