It's been nearly a month since her fiancé popped the question, but bride-to-be Candice Accola is still basking in newly-engaged bliss.
"I can't even think about [the wedding] yet," the Vampire Diaries star, 26, told PEOPLE at Midori's Happy Hour Style Event Thursday evening at The London. "We're just enjoying the engagement with our friends and family right now."
Accola, who is the new face of the melon liqueur brand, met fiancé Joseph King (guitarist for the band The Fray) two years ago at a Superbowl event – but she was too shy initially to make a move.

Vampire Diaries costars Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev have called it quits after dating for several years, PEOPLE has confirmed.
The couple were last seen taking a late-night trip to a cat hospital together last month, with no sign then that their own relationship may have been hurting.
Somerhalder, 34, and Dobrev, 24, kept their romance secret during their early days as a couple, despite evidence that they were together.

Ryan Merriman worked hard on New Year's Eve to make his proposal special. First he tried a tiki bar, but that wasn't quite right. And then he tried out a New Zealand nightclub where it was far too loud.
Finally he headed to Auckland's SkyCity and the harbor, where high above the water in an outdoor tower, as the New Year's fireworks display was launched into the night skies, he finally summoned the nerve to ask for Kristen McMullen's hand in marriage.
"I did it on the fly of the moment. Thank God it worked," he told PEOPLE Tuesday at the premiere of his new film, the Jackie Robinson biopic 42 where he plays Brooklyn Dodgers right fielder Dixie Walker, in Hollywood. "She said 'Yes.' "

Temptation is tough – just ask Nina Dobrev.
The Vampire Diaries star, 23, went into filming CW's hit series with every intention of keeping things strictly business. Instead, she ended up with a boyfriend: costar Ian Somerhalder, 33.
"The first time I was on the cover of Seventeen, the cover line said, 'Nina: Why she wouldn't date any of her costars,' " she recalls to the magazine in its October issue. "And then cut to two years later ... it's funny that I said that."

How did Ian Somerhalder spend his birthday?
"I was naked with a beautiful girl all day," the star of The Vampire Diaries, who turned 32 on Dec. 8, tells PEOPLE. "I had a shower scene that led into another scene were I was kind of half-naked and wet."
Though Somerhalder does confirm he was on the set of his hit CW show, he wouldn't say whether his character, the scumbag vampire Damon, finally scored with Elena, who is played by Nina Dobrev and definitely qualifies as a beautiful girl.
"Damon has a long way to go," he says of conquering Elena. "He tried to kill her brother."
