Reed’s gorgeous custom wedding dress
Nikki Reed decided to don a couture Claire Pettibone gown during her wedding to Ian Somerhalder on Sunday.
The 26-year-old Twilight actress wed 36-year-old The Vampire Diaries actor Ian Somerhalder on Sunday April 26 in Santa Monica, California.
Nikki donned a couture Claire Pettibone gown to the nuptials, which featured beading and Chantilly lace, and the designer loved working with her on the stunning dress.
“Nikki was a delight to design for, and I wish the beautiful couple every happiness,” Claire wrote in a statement issued to People magazine.
Several photos of the bride emerged on social media Monday morning and in these images Nikki is seen wearing the stunning white gown, which is decked out with lace sleeves and a billowing white skirt. She wore her brunette tresses down and wavy. The design, which is a modified version of designer Claire’s Elizabeth style, was specialised to include a plunging low back. Nikki decided not to wear a traditional veil, instead choosing to string lovely white flowers in her hair.
Wearing matching attire, her groom Ian looked dapper in a white suit, topping his outfit off with a cornflower blue tie.
Ian proposed in January and while asking for her hand in marriage, he presented Nikki with a vintage-inspired diamond ring. The band features a round centre diamond surrounded by smaller stones, with the shape taking on somewhat of a floral pattern.
“It’s so gorgeous, and I’m very lucky for many reasons, but I look at it every day and just think, ‘Wow,’ ” Nikki gushed to People previously about the ring. “I don’t even know what to say. Is that not the most beautiful thing you’ve ever seen in your whole life?'”
