Candice Accola from The Vampire Diaries has married her long-term boyfriend, The Fray’s Joe King. It was a relatively private ceremony, but most of the cast of the hit TV show attended. Main member, Ian Somerhalder, was not able to make it.
The two married on October 18, in New Orleans. For The Vampire Diaries and The Originals fans, it will be interesting to hear that. New Orleans is where the spin off to Accola’s show is set.
Most of the cast and crew took a break from filming season six of the hot vampire show, so Accola could say “I do” to King. She was spotted with Nina Dobrev, Kat Graham and Paul Wesley among others in attendance.
Somerhalder did send his apologies and congratulations to her personally and through social media. He used Instagram, leaving a loving message about missing the ceremony that would be in his home state. The actor was unfortunately on the set of the show, where he plays vampire Damon Salvatore.
Accola plays Caroline Forbes on the TV show, with a storyline possibly revolving around her and Wesley’s character Stefan. There are many fans who would like to see the two together, especially after the moment in the scrap heap towards the end of season five. However, there are strong possibilities that the two will not get together on the show. Some will be happy to hear that, because they would prefer Caroline to have a storyline that does not revolve around a love interest. Others are hoping Caroline will move to New Orleans and be a regular on The Originals.
The 27-year-old actress’ bridal shower was thrown by Kayla Ewell and Claire Holt, both former co-stars on the show. The Vampire Diaries’ Accola’s bridal show was two months before she and The Fray’s King married in New Orleans.
King proposed to his long-term girlfriend in May 2013. His new fiancée took to Twitter to share the good news with her followers. She announced it from the “future Mr. & Mrs. Joseph Aaron King,” and then shared a second tweet showing the two were happy together. The first tweet was later re-tweeted by co-star Dobrev, who plays best friend Elena on the set of The Vampire Diaries.
Dobrev quickly used the chance to find out more about bridesmaid dresses and colors, jokingly making it clear that yellow was not a good color for her. According to People, Ewell was one of the bridesmaids for the big day. She played Vicki Donovan on the show, before her early demise in season one.
This is the first marriage for the 27-year-old actress. It is the second for her new husband. His first marriage produced two daughters. The two met in 2012 at the Celebrity BeachBowl by DirecTV. They started dating shortly after, before King proposed in 2013. She was in the Love Don’t Die for The Fray. His bandmates were in attendance at the New Orleans wedding. From the look of photos, The Vampire Diaries’ Accola certainly married The Fray’s King in style.
