To celebrate their wedding, the 'Bullet Train' actress shared special snapshots of her romantic festivities with her director husband
Joey King had a destination wedding fit for a princess!
To celebrate their wedding weekend, newlyweds King, 24, and Steven Piet shared special snapshots of the joyous occasion. The Bullet Train actress' longtime friend and stylist Jared Eng filled in PEOPLE on the gorgeous looks worn by the newlyweds.
"We started this journey probably a year and a half ago," Eng said of the wedding planning, which began following the announcement of their engagement in February 2022.
King and Eng began with a search for the perfect gown that the bride could walk down the aisle in while escorted by her mother.
"I brought Oscar de la Renta to the table because I know that one of its creator-directors, Fernando [Garcia], was a huge fan of Joey," Eng continued, recalling how King searched through the designer's bridal collections and fell in love with one dress in particular, a classic ballgown with a sweetheart neckline and texture reminiscent of flowers.
“I knew instantly they were perfect,” King told Vogue of the outfits she chose for her nuptials.
"We flew to New York. It was me, her mother, her friend Sabrina ... and we tried on that dress and a whole bunch of other dresses," Eng recalled. "It got emotional. We all got teary-eyed, and we just knew it was the perfect dress."
The wedding venue, La Fortaleza was built in 1628 and is a historic fortress high on a hill. It afforded the newlyweds the perfect location to capture the sunset as they exchanged self-penned vows in front of around 100 guests.
“We were looking for something unique and private and that felt grand yet intimate at the same time,” King told Vogue of the venue. “We found La Fortaleza in Mallorca, and it feels like the Spanish version of The Great Gatsby. It’s historic without being dated. It felt timeless, the same way we feel about our love for each other.”
The ceremony took place atop the fortress's lower-terrace swimming pool. "It's super romantic," Eng said. "If you could look it up, it's where Rafael Nadal got married."
“Looking out from the altar at all of our friends and family was an unforgettable moment,” King told Vogue. “We truly felt so perfectly present, and soaking in every detail was pure magic.”
For the reception, comfort was king, with Eng saying King intended to "dance until the wee hours of the night." For their first dance, the couple performed a choreographed number to Cat Power’s rendition of “Sea of Love.” King changed into a shorter dress paired with sneakers for the number.
King's two older sisters, Kelli King and Life in Pieces actress Hunter King, acted as bridesmaids, wearing custom gowns by Self-Portrait. Hunter's gown featured a cape, while Kelli's had spaghetti straps with feather detail on the back.

As for the groom's wedding attire, Piet, who directed the 2015 indie movie Uncle John, wore a suit by Italian designer Brunello Cucinelli, with the jacket monogrammed on its inside with his name and the wedding date, per Eng.
King told Vogue of her wedding festivities, “The best part was seeing all our friends who didn’t know each other just melting into one another and instantly connecting. We are surrounded by the best people, and seeing them all together was infectiously joyous.”
