The newly-married couple has a lifetime of happiness to look forward to, after their intimate ceremony in Malibu last weekend. US Weekly has details on the wedding, as well as reflections from friends and family.

About 150 guests were in attendance, including True Blood castmates Ryan Kwanten, Sam Trammell, Carrie Preston, and Rutina Wesley, as well as series boss Alan Ball. Immediately following the 20-minute ceremony, Stephen celebrated by running into the ocean for a swim with a few friends. The reception that followed was purple-themed, from the flowers to the tablecloths. An all-organic menu including truffled grilled cheese with apricot mustard and beef Wellington with smoked ketchup was served by Eco Caters. Todd Lowe, who plays Terry Bellefleur on True Blood, provided music with his band, Pilbilly Knights.

Their fellow actors on the show and members of the crew recall how long it was before they knew anything about Stephen and Anna’s relationship, but now it’s so obvious in their on- and off-screen chemistry. Cathy Waterman, who designed Anna’s diamond engagement ring, as well as the wedding bands, says,

“To watch Stephen glow as he and Anna fell in love was simply gorgeous. They are lovers and friends and make the world a sunnier place.”

Everybody agrees that they are such an atypical Hollywood couple because of how comfortable they are with each other, whether it’s holding hands as they stroll near their Venice, CA, home, or relaxing with friends and family at a party. As friend and costar Carrie Preston says, “[Anna] really feels like this was all meant to be.”

Looking to the future, Anna has mentioned that she would love to have children, “if I’m blessed with a body that will give them to me. Or even if I’m not. There are many ways to make a family.” She already has a great relationship with Stephen’s kids, Billy and Lilac. Lindsay Haun, who plays Sookie’s cousin Hadley, mentions that Stephen and Anna have talked about childproofing their home:

“I’m sure a baby is in their future!”

In the near future, though, Stephen and Anna are scheduled to present an award at Sunday night’s Emmy Awards, after which they are expected to take their honeymoon.
