‘Empire’ Costars Trai Byers and Grace Gealey Get Married in Caribbean Beach Wedding

It’s an Empire wedding! Trai Byers and Grace Gealey tied the knot in an intimate beachside wedding on Thursday, April 14, on Grand Cayman.

The costars celebrated with close friends and family at the small reception on the Caribbean island, but didn’t invite any of their Empire costars.

“They just wanted to get away and do it small and simple, without making a fuss,” a source tells Us.

Guests dined on steak and lobster and danced to hip-hop, disco and reggae music throughout the night, according to TMZ.

As Us Weekly previously reported, the happy couple got engaged in July 2015 on Gealey’s 31st birthday. “He popped the question and she was totally surprised and elated,” a source confirmed at the time. “She can’t stop looking at the ring! They celebrated all night.”

The musical duo started dating early last year, shortly after they met while shooting the hit Fox series, on which Byers, 32, plays Andre Lyon and Gealey portrays Anika Calhoun.
