actor Joseph Morgan and his fiancee, Persia White, tied the knot in Ocho Rios, Jamaica, on Saturday, July 5, his rep confirms to Us Weekly.
Persia wore a stunning Vera Wang gown that she paired with a traditional, cathedral-length veil, while the stylish groom rocked a white silk tux with black lapels by designer Miguel Wilson. “In fact, the bow tie was the first bow tie I’ve ever tied myself, so I was quite proud of that.” The newlyweds seem to have so much in common, and that was definitely represented in their choice of location for their nuptials!
“I think one of the reasons we picked it was because we love the ocean and we both grew up by the sea,” Persia says. And the people of Jamaica are just wonderful.” And so were the guests!
“It was mostly family, a handful of close friends,” Joseph reveals.
“My best man was my best friend of almost 20 years, Matt Ryan.
He actually plays John Constantine on the new NBC show , but we’ve been friends since we were teenagers.” The couple kicked off an amazing night of song and dance by rocking out to Florence + the Machine‘s “Never Let Me Go” at their reception.
They also danced to a fun band of Jamaican drummers.“We had this great group called the Children of the Drums,” Joseph says.“It was six Jamaican drummers, and they got everybody up on the dance floor.At one point, all of our guests were on the dance floor, which is an achievement, I think.” After hopping a helicopter to Negril for their honeymoon, the newlyweds kicked things up a notch by going cliff jumping!“That was what was more daunting than anything else,” Persia says.“And we did it together, so we’re pretty proud of that.” Joseph and Persia already sound eager to begin their next adventure — starting a family of “little cute mini Josephs,” Persia reveals. How about you, Hollywood Lifers — do YOU think Persia and Joseph make a cute couple?
