This Vampire Diaries star got married in secret yesterday!

They may have only been engaged for a few months, but Hollywood couple Nikki Reed and Ian Somerhalder didn't waste any time in tying the knot.

Vampire Diaries star Ian wed his sweetheart in an intimate outdoor ceremony yesterday morning, and the first pictures emerged just hours ago via Twitter.

In one gorgeous photo Ian is seen looking lovingly at Nikki, and in another the couple share their first kiss as husband and wife.

That dress… beautiful.

Although not many details about the ceremony have been announced, Ian tweeted on Friday to let fans know he'd arrived back in his home state of Louisiana, so it's very possible the wedding took place there. 

Ian also tweeted last night to share a sweet message about his big day, simply writing, "most beautiful morning ever":

Ian and Nikki began dating last summer, almost a year after his long-term relationship with co-star Nina Dobrev came to an end. The couple's January engagement came just weeks after Nikki’s divorce from singer Paul McDonald was finalised after three years of marriage.
