Nikki Reed is now Mrs. Ian Somerhalder after marrying The Vampire Diaries star on Sunday!

The Vampire Diaries Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed became Mr. and Mrs. in Malibu, CA, this past Sunday, April 26, 2015, surrounded by trees, friends, and family!

The enchanting outdoor wedding was a traditional one with a custom gown by Claire Pettibone of white Chantilly lace with delicate beading and low, plunging back for Nikki, who went for a string of white flowers for her head instead of a veil, and off-white suit with a cornflower blue tie for Ian. The “I Do”‘s were at sunset and their first married kiss was under a beautiful string of lights! After the nuptials they posed for pictures.

According Pettibone, “Nikki was a delight to design for, and I wish the beautiful couple every happiness.”

Well-wishers tweeted their congratulations and love, including Ian’s ex Nina Dobrev. Nina tweeted, “Positivity. Love. Happiness. That is what Im sending out into the Universe, may your day be filled with it…??Namas”

Kat Graham, Bonnie Bennett on The Vampire Diaries, tweeted “I haven’t met two people that were more of soul mates than those guys. They are so absolutely amazing. Everyone loves them, and I really can’t imagine him with anyone else.”

Julie Plec, executive producer of TVD and The Originals, tweeted “T’was a beautiful day to be young and in love.”

Ian also tweeted about his special day, saying “Most beautiful morning ever”!

Ian popped the question to Nikki in January with a beautiful antique-inspired ring with a traditional round center diamond and clusters of small round diamonds surrounding it, creating a floral ring motif.

Although some may think their relationship has been short, and perhaps just an infatuation, they’ve actually known each other for a long time and are passionate about many things, including animal rights and environmental issues. According to Nikki, who Ian presented with an award in February for her work with animals, “What’s actually, I think, nurtured this long friendship that we’ve had is that we are passionate about similar things.”

Nikki continued by saying they wake up every morning and talk about how to make a better place of the world.

Kat Graham thinks they’re the perfect soul-mate couple who is “literally perfect.”

I haven’t met two people that were more of soul mates than those guys. They literally are perfect – from their Humane Society work together to them wanting to make the world a better place. I mean, it’s really exciting when you see two people come together that are amazing.

From the aerial photographs, the wedding was a modest size, with nine tables for 10 guests each. Ian’s TVD family was well represented with executive producers Julie Plec and Kevin Williamson, co-stars Kat Graham, Matt Davis, Paul Wesley, and Phoebe Tonkin. Phoebe is also Paul Wesley’s girlfriend and co-star on The Originals. Nikki’s friend Lea Michele and her boyfriend Matthew Paetz were also in attendance.

Ian and Nikki are both active in many animal-related projects, including the Humane Society, and have adopted a number of pet babies together, including two horses. In lieu of wedding gifts they asked guests to donate to an animal rescue charity of their choice. As for human babies, Ian has stated that he wanted to wait a year until he wasn’t filming anymore. Is this a hint that season 7 may be the last for The Vampire Diaries?
