Nikki Reed & Ian Somerhalder Share New Pics & Details From Summer Wedding

Nikki Reed gets some help with her wedding gown in this gorgeous pic from her recent nuptials to Ian Somerhalder, featured in the October 2015 issue of Brides.

Here’s what the 27-year-old actress had to share about her wedding:

On the vibe: “We wanted a Louisiana backyard-barbecue feel, with food stations and a dance floor for our closest friends and family.”

On what mattered most: “It really was all about the food, the dancing, and the love.”

On the surprise: “We really wanted our wedding to be small, intimate, and about the two of us. We didn’t want our loved ones to show up with any expectations or squeezed into formal attire.”

On the dress: “Claire [Pettibone] was an absolute dream to work with. Not only is she an amazing designer, but she has the most wonderful energy. We were on the same page from the moment we met.”

On the music: “Ellis Hall sang the night away. Live music is so important to us, and we couldn’t imagine anyone but Ellis there with us.”

Ian Somerhalder Talks 'Vampire Diaries' Without Elena Gilbert

Ian Sommerhalder smiles at his adoring fans while making his way through Universal Studios for an interview on Extra on Thursday (July 9) in Universal City, Calif.

The 36-year-old Vampire Diaries star recently opened up about what the show will be like now that Elena Gilbert (Nina Dobrev) is gone.

“The way it was done was great. The way it was done was actually incredible, because it allows people to know that she’s still there…she’s not dead,” Ian said. “In seventy years or however long Bonnie lives, Elena will resurface at some point, although we’ll be very old when that happens.”

Ian added, “We’re actually very excited about telling this story. Mystic Falls without Elena Gilbert is going to be very different. We want to go back to that Season 1 and Season 2 of storytelling… I think that the last scene in the last episode that you see is truly a depiction of what this next season’s going to be.”
