FOr the next time, if you don't have a spare tile to check the results of an enhancing sealer, wet it down well with some water. This tends to darken marble, and make any veining more prominent. On some stone, it can make dramatic differences that you may or may not like. But, once it's applied, because it penetrates, there's nothing you can do to change it back.

I think I'd seal then caulk, but I'd first read the fine print on both products, and I'd wait to hear what others said! The sealer instructions often require a wait between applying the grout and then the sealer to allow the excess moisture to evaporate from the grout (and maybe tile) before adding the sealer. This is in the order of days, not hours.
