Paul Wesley & Torrey DeVitto were together a fair amount of time before they got married — about four years, actually — though, their actual engagement date is unknown. But, obviously, it didn’t work out in the end, anyway, as they separated in July 2013. Kat Graham and her longtime love, Cottrell Guidry, were engaged for a little over two years, but then eventually called it quits. And, of course, you know that things didn’t work out for Taylor Kinney & Lady Gaga, despite their over-a-year-long engagement.
Perhaps all the aforementioned Vampire Diaries stars could’ve taken a cue from all those celebrity couples with short engagements (though, that doesn’t always work either). ’cause, looking at all the TVD actors who got hitched after less than a year of betrothal, things seem to be going quite well for them. (Take note, Matthew Davis — time’s running out!)
Love came for the blonde Aussie, who played Rebekah Mikaelson, after she left TVD (for The Originals). In April 2014, three months after her last episode, she hooked up with film producer Matt Kaplan for the first time (publicly, anyway).
Shortly over a year later, in July 2015, Matt popped the question... but it took far less than a year after that to walk down the aisle. Nine months, to be precise. In April 2016, Claire posted a photo of the bride & groom kissing, along with the caption, "Mr and Mrs Kaplan. Thank you to our beautiful families for making the day so special."
Believe it or not, the man who brought Elijah Mikaelson to ~life~ on the small screen has been married for over a decade — and to someone you've known since childhood. His wife is none other than She's All That star Rachael Leigh Cook!
The two have been husband and wife for over 12 years. But, the beginning of their relationship was quite a whirlwind. The pair began dating in December 2001, got engaged two years later, then said, "I do," eight months later, in August 2004. Now, they're the proud parents of two beautiful children.
It took Kayla Ewell less than nine months to the altar with her longtime love, too. On September 12, 2015, the young woman who portrayed Matt's little sister, Vicki Donovan, got hitched to her man, Tanner Novlan, despite their holiday engagement less than a year prior.
They didn't rush into this, though, by any means. The two began dating all the way back in February 2010.
It only took five months for Ian to get down on one knee for Nikki Reed, and not even four months after that to don their tuxedo and dress in April 2015.
Clearly, in that short timeframe, he found what he was looking for; something not in his three-year relationship with co-star Nina Dobrev.
Did you know that JM married one of his TVD co-stars? Persia White. If you don't know her by name, you definitely know her as Abby Bennett Wilson. That's right, Klaus Mikaelson and Bonnie Bennett's mom are husband and wife!
The two were together for almost two full years before he popped the question in May 2014. Fast forward a mere two months and five days, and they were vowing to spend the rest of their lives together. WHA-?!
