Twilight alum Nikki Reed, 26, and The Vampire Diaries star Ian Somerhalder, 36, exchanged their “I Dos” on Sunday, April 26, 2015, in Santa Monica, California. The loved-up couple, who first got together in July 2014, had an intimate ceremony with close friends and family. Here are four things we loved.

Her gown
Not all of Nikki’s red carpet choices are hits, but we’re giving her wedding dress our firm seal of approval. She chose an exquisite custom couture Claire Pettibone fit-and-flare gown with long sleeves made of Chantilly lace and delicate beading that looked sexy and classic at the same time. The vintage-looking gown may have looked prettily conservative in front, its back revealed a plunging dip, a modified version of Pettibone’s “Elizabeth” design. And instead of a veil, the actress wore a string of white flowers along the back of her head.

His suit
Even if he didn’t appear on a towering white steed, Ian certainly commanded the same attention as his bride on their big day. He matched his piercing good looks with an off-white suit with cornflower blue tie.

The gifts
In lieu of wedding gifts, the happy couple asked guests to donate to their animal rescue charity, which they both share a passion for.

The venue
Whether it’s the balmy weather in California, or the cool sunset ceremony at Topanga Canyon, we’re sure the couple and their guests had a wonderful time.
