This weeks episode of The Originals featured Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) and Jackson (Nathan Parsons) exchanging vows in a beautiful ceremony. From the location to the candles everything was perfect for this occasion and fit perfectly into a New Orleans theme wedding. So who inspired the look and feel of this lovely wedding?
Fellow CW star Candice Accola, (The Vampire Diaries' Caroline Forbes) married guitarist Joe King of The Fray October of last year. The two lovebirds got married in their favorite city...New Orleans. So I'm guessing the writers loved Candice and Joe's wedding too, because that was the inspiration for Hayley and Jackson's. From the reception with all the candles and chandeliers, to the simple but elegant look of the bride and her dress. Check out this video of the beautiful ceremony to see more inspired looks from the episode.
Love the fact that both The Originals and Candice & Joe took all that everyone loved about the city of New Orleans and incorporated it perfectly. This city is beautiful and both parties knew how to showcase that. Now you ask if Candice was okay with them using her wedding theme and even closely similar setups? Originals' writer Carina Mackenzie took to twitter to reply:
Yes...Candice is the coolest. But one thing to add before I post endless pics of both beautiful brides. It would have been a lot cooler if Candice could have been present. Since her character Caroline Forbes just happens to be Klaus' last love. Well...maybe. There's still hope as both shows move into a third & seventh season respectively. Klaroline is not going anywhere....could this be a sign?
The Inspiration behind it all, even down to the second line parade....Such a breathtaking wedding. Both Candice Accola and Phoebe Tonkin make beautiful brides.
