by at .

While fans continue to say "No way!" over the news, Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed really did say "I do" last Sunday afternoon.

Much to the shock of most celebrity gossip followers, Somerhalder and Reed got married in Santa Monica, just four months after getting engaged and with no announcement that the big day was on the calendar.

Having already provided a few Nikki Reed wedding dress details, let's go inside the actual wedding ceremony and reception as much as possible, shall we?

Ian and Nikki

According to Us Weekly, the knot was tied on April 26 at the Tuscali Mountain Inn in Topanga, California.

Nikki originally wanted a small wedding. But Ian envisioned a big wedding. She was happy to let him call the shots," a friend tells the tabloid.

Reed was previously married to former American Idol contestant Paul McDonald, while Somerhalder famously dated his Vampire Diaries co-star, Nina Dobrev, for years.

Sources go on to tell Us that the newlyweds posed for pictures on a hillside, with the groom lifting his bride in the air so her custom couture Claire Pettibone gown would remain clean.

Those in attendance included Kat Graham, Paul Wesley, Matt Davis and Phoebe Tonkin, all of whom ate at long tables covered with white blooms.

They later danced to a band.

Moreover, in lieu of gifts, the owners of four dogs, three cats and a pair of horses asked for donations to the Ian Somerhalder Foundation for rescued animals.

It's unknown where Ian and Nikki are headed to on their honeymoon, but both have clear schedules and this source says they are off to someplace "extravagant."

We'd expect nothing less!
