In August of last year we learned that True Blood costars Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer had gotten engaged to me married. In August of this year, yesterday to be more specific, Anna and Stephen tied the knot in a fun wedding ceremony in Malibu, CA. Earlier this week we got to see Anna and Stephen posing on the cover with their other TB costar Alexander Skarsgård wearing nothing but blood spatter on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine … so in celebration, the couple decided to get hitched!
True Blood stars Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer wed Saturday evening at a private residence in Malibu, Calif., UsMagazine.com has confirmed. Guests — many of them bearing gifts in purple boxes and with purple bows — included Elijah Wood and True Blood costar Carrie Preston with husband Michael Emerson (Lost). Paquin, 28, and Moyer, 40, exchanged their vows beneath a tent across the street from the beach. The couple announced their engagement last August. Connecting over daily breakfasts at a West Hollywood cafe, they began dating a few months after filming first began in 2008 for HBO’s smash vampire series … But the duo waited until February 2009 to debut their real-life romance — a delay that was “very intentional on both our parts,” British actor Moyer explained at the time. “It was very important to me that the cast and crew we were working with didn’t feel it was fickle….We didn’t want to take anything away from the show.” Moyer proposed to Canadian-born, New Zealand-raised Paquin on a Hawaiian beach, presenting her with a ring — a rustic diamond set in an antiqued platinum inset … “With Anna it’s just about pure trust, on camera and off,” Moyer gushed in the July issue of Playboy. “I have never trusted anybody like I trust Anna.” “I feel so lucky right now,” Paquin says in the latest issue of Rolling Stone. “Life is pretty great.”
Awww … what a nice and very happy surprise! As you might expect of Anna and Stephen, their wedding ceremony was a bit … unconventional. Sure, while celebs like Elijah Wood were in attendance, it was the reception part of the evening that got a little out of hand. After the jump, check out a few photos from Anna and Stephen’s wedding ceremony which took place yesterday evening …
After the couple said their I Dos, Stephen stripped down to his board shorts and went for a dip in the Pacific Ocean while his blushing bride looked on approvingly! It’s a shame that Anna didn’t join him but I guess she wanted to stay dry for the duration of her wedding night. I couldn’t be more happy for these two … they strike me as a very loving couple and I wish them nothing but the happiest ever together! Congrats!!
