Empire star, Kaitlin Doubleday, is officially married and if one thing's for sure, it's that her reception playlist kept her wedding guests on the dance floor all night long — she's a member of the Empire Entertainment record company family, after all! Well her Empire character is, at least... But we're sure even the glitz and glam-loving Cookie would approve of Doubleday's gorgeous, flower-filled big day.
Doubleday and her now-hubby, Devin Lucien, became engaged in Paris, France last year, with the L.A.-based DJ popping the question with a vintage-style diamond engagement ring and the actress calling the romantic moment "the most memorable night of my life thus far" on social media. But we're thinking her wedding day might just have stolen that title!
On Friday May 6, Doubleday and her now-hubby headed to the Ventana Inn in Big Sur, California to tie the knot, and they certainly didn't let the gloomy weather rain on their parade. Despite the drizzling rain, the bride and groom still exchanged vows in the great outdoors, which made for some beautifully foggy wedding photos.
With the bride stunning in a Mark Zunino wedding dress, the ceremony took place under a lush flower arch and the aisle was also lined with white blooms. "I decided on Big Sur because it's all the beautiful things I get from the East Coast and also far enough away we could make the weekend out of it," Doubleday explained to E! News. Beautiful? Well, that's putting things lightly!
Wedding guests included Empire co-creator Lee Daniels and Doubleday's co-stars Gabourey Sidibe and Rafael de la Fuente, who all got up to some boozy good fun, indulging in some delicious noms and sipping on a selection of wedding wines from Winc Wines after the "I do's." Seriously, what's more swoon-worthy? The reception's long banquet-style tables and suspended candle décor or the bride's custom cap-sleeved gorgeous gown...
"Most beautiful night of my life by far," the actress wrote on social media after tying the knot. "Worth every moment of stress and headache. We have the most incredible friends and family and they were all here to witness our love. Thank you to all of you. You know who you are."
This isn't the only star of the FOX mega-hit to recently tie the knot. Doubleday's onscreen husband, Trai Byers, married Grace Gealey in a Caribbean destination wedding just a few weeks ago. There must be something in the water over at Empire Entertainment...
