Mrs. King has arrived! One day after tying the knot in New Orleans, Candice Accola and The Fray's Joe King shared their first wedding pictures via Instagram. The intimate black-and-white snapshots showed the newlyweds getting emotional during one of their first dances as husband and wife and of kissing in front of their elated guests.

The Vampire Diaries actress, 27, looked beautiful in a Monique Lhuillier gown while the groom donned a Tom Ford tux. Going with tradition of a "French Quarter Wedding," the Mr. and Mrs. kicked off their reception celebration with a line parade in the streets.

"Officially Mr. and Mrs. King! Best night ever!" Accola wrote. In a second pic, King gushed over his new bride. "My wife, she makes me wanna dance," the 34-year-old wrote. The couple — who met at the DirecTV's Celebrity BeachBowl in 2012 — were surrounded by family and friends as they swayed below a rustic tree setting and chandeliers.
