Paparazzi photos from the ceremony began to circulate on Twitter early Monday (27th April) morning.
The cute couple’s nuptials come about 9 months after they first started dating and almost 4 months after they got engaged. The couple first sparked romance rumors when they were spotted getting their PDA on in July at an L.A. farmers market. In addition to their obvious chemistry, the duo bonded over their love for animals.
Shortly after hooking up, they proved they were getting serious fast by adopting a horse named Eagle together. They also adopted a pet kitten together.

The newest addition to the family. Her name is Sohalia. Thank you @iamnikkireed for finding us this amazing kid in Conyers Georgia. Unfortunately this little kid was wildly mislabeled as "feral/not friendly", and had Nikki not gone in and opened her cage regardless, we would have never found out that she is the most loving kitty on the planet and she may have been put down. The point is this; because shelters are so understaffed, this happens more often than not. Let's encourage the people who work at shelters and people whom make policies for shelter workers to take more time to get to know the animals that are brought in, so they can properly inform potential adopters. Also, if you are thinking about adding a new member to your family, know that there might be more to the animal than what's written on their cage!!! Go have fun and adopt! Send me pictures please! Thank you- Love, Ian
In fact, as confirmed by E! News, in a loving gesture that in lieu of gifts, wedding guests were asked to donate to the newlywed’s animal rescue charity.
And apparently, animals aren’t the only passion they have in common. They also started a production company together several months ago. Ian said of the production company to E! News:
Nikki and I are starting a production company and we’re going to be able to tell even more stories that we really want to tell, everything from documentaries to TV shows to movies…all kinds of stuff. Having the success of a television show like “Vampire Diaries” really allows you to be able…now I get to start spreading my creative wings as well. It’s going to be awesome. Listen, it’s about telling stories and it’s about creating the content to tell those stories and whose going to distribute that content.
Aww, we’re so happy for them, finally sharing a life together and all that jazz.
Congratulations, Ian and Nikki!
Here’s to a long and happy marriage 🙂
