In a match that seems to be made in vampire heaven, Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed have officially tied the knot. It has been confirmed that the 26-year-old Twilight alum married the 36-year-old Vampire Diaries star on Sunday, in Malibu, California. The wedding ceremony took place in Topanga Canyon and the images showed the couple holding each other tightly while staring into the horizon. Somerhalder wore an all-white dashing suit while the bride was dressed in an elegant fishtail and backless Claire Pettibone gown in white with lace sleeves.
On the morning of their wedding, Somerhalder tweeted ‘most beautiful morning ever’, which is a unique way of expressing his happiness. First spotted together at the farmer’s market last July, the nuptials cap off a good and affectionate year for the two of them. Shortly after being spotted, the couple packed a PDA at Comic Con and later on adopted a horse together a month later that they named Eagle. Eventually, they got engaged in January, after only six months of dating. Reed soon moved in with Somerhalder at his place in Atlanta, Ga where Somerhalder films his vampire drama.
Theirs is a very passionate relationship and doesn’t seem to be waning any time soon as they earlier this month, they were spotted at Coachella making out.
However, the couple has made it clear that theirs isn’t just a case of simple infatuation and their relationship goes deeper than that. In February, Reed told reporters that the reason their friendship has nurtured and lasted is because they share a passion and interest about similar things. This was right before she was presented an award by Somerhalder for the work she does with animals. She also said that it was their habit to wake up in the morning literally and discuss how they could make this world a better place to live. She even said that they don’t fight on anything except on one silly and cute issues; Ian’s eyes.
She said at the event that his eyes seem aqua colored to her whereas he thinks they are ocean blue. The couple aren’t the only one who consider their relationship special. Kat Graham, the Vampire Diaries costar of Somerhalder called the pair ‘literally perfect’. She said that she hadn’t met two people who were more like soulmates than they are. Graham added that it was really nice and exciting to see two such people come together as they are made for each other from the Humane Society work they do, the love for animals they share and the way they try to make this world a better place.
This is the first trip down the aisle for Somerhalder and the second for Reed. She was married to Paul McDonald, the American Idol Season 10 alum and split with him in March 2014, after just two years of marriage. Her divorce was finalized on January 2nd, while she was dating Somerhalder. Their wedding was attended by close family members and friends of the couple.
