Now THAT’S how you have a surprise wedding!
After a whirlwind romance lasting just over a year, Nikki Reed and Ian Somerhalder quietly tied the knot in a secret ceremony over the weekend.
E! News got the exclusive, and reports that the 26-year-old Twilight actress and 36-year-old Vampire Diaries star said their I Do’s as the sun set on Sunday in Santa Monica, CA.
The famous couple gave little indication of their impending nuptials, though Somerhalder did take to Twitter in the very early hours of his wedding day to share a fairly cryptic message:
According to E!, Nikki and Ian, who are known animal lovers and share a pet horse and kitten, asked attendees to donate to their animal rescue charity in lieu of receiving wedding gifts.
The two ‘vampire’ hotties first stepped out together in July of 2014 and revealed that they were engaged back in January. Prior to meeting his now-wife, Somerhalder famously dated his former Vampire Diaries co-star Nina Dobrev, while Reed was married to Paul McDonald from 2011-2015.
Congrats to the happy couple!
