Ian Somerhalder and wife, actress Nikki Reed, shared some photos from their very secret wedding, four months after they tied the knot.
The photos from Ian and Nikki’s wedding will be on BRIDES magazine October/November 2015 issue.
BRIDES wrote the couple’s guests were invited to a housewarming party on April 26. Upon arrival at the shuttle location, the group was then transported to a secret ceremony site in Topanga Canyon in California where Ian and Nikki exchanged vows.
“We didn’t want our loved ones to show up with any expectations or squeezed into formal attire,” Reed told the BRIDES.
Guests to the intimate wedding included Somerhalder’s “TVD” co-stars Kat Graham, Paul Wesley, Matt Davis, and Phoebe Tonkin.
The “Twilight” actress wore a Claire Pettibone lace wedding dress while Ian, 36, wore white suit by Nedo Bellucci. Her elegant wedding gown was paired with boho-chic bouquet roses, peonies, wildflowers and lush greenery, BRIDES noted.
Nikki, 27, said, “We really wanted our wedding to be small, intimate, and about the two of us.”
People magazine wrote the couple also sliced a cake, which was custom-made by Vanilla Bake Shop in Ian’s Southern roots. It was a red velvet wedding cake, decorated with white buttercream and pretty pink flowers. On top of it sat two birds under a wreath.
The newlyweds also served guests their favorite drinks, People noted. For Reed, it was a sweet cocktail of pear vodka, St. Germaine, and citrus bitters, while her husband’s favorite mix was a spicy hibiscus margarita.
“We wanted a Louisiana backyard-barbecue feel, with food stations and a dance floor for our closest friends and family,” Reed said.
“It really was all about the food, the dancing and the love,” she added.
Could it be that the wedding photos were released just in time as the Ian and Nina rumors are gaining heat? Probably not, but it will be interesting to see how the story unfolds.
The Brides magazine October/November 2015 issue will hit newsstands on Sept. 8.
