On August 21st, True Blood
costars Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer made it official, tying the knot in an intimate, nondenominational wedding ceremony in Malibu, CA. This quirky couple infused their own offbeat style throughout the special day, and we've got all the juicy details!
True Blood Officiant
: Paquin and Moyer’s vows were officiated by a True Blood
Paquin's Bridal Style
: Anna was casually beautiful in a cream-colored, ankle-length halter wedding dress
, and added some serious bling with Neil Lane jewels. 3-carat stud diamonds adorned her ears, and a 50-carat vintage-inspired
necklace finished the look. To add a little True Blood
, gothic flair, she donned dark purple nails, and a rich red frock for the wedding reception.
The Dapper Groom
: typically it’s the bride who pulls a wedding day style “presto chango” from the ceremony to the reception. But Stephen Moyer pulled a Houdini of his own, sporting two wedding day looks. A dark, traditional suit for the wedding ceremony
, and then blue and white swim trunks (yes, swim trunks!) for the reception. And forget about the cocktail hour between the ceremony and reception. Instead, Moyer and six friends gave “taking the plunge” a whole new meaning, sprinting into the ocean after Moyer said I Do!
: the wedding reception venue
was a 6,000-sq-ft, beachside private residence in Malibu’s gated Colony. And the wedding color palette was a monochromatic mix of unique purple hues. For the wedding flowers
, Paquin and Moyer kept it simple, with white, purple, pink and green hydrangeas. And in the spirit of going green
, wedding guests were treated to a totally organic dinner menu.
