Back in June, we learned that American Idol‘s season ten contestant, Paul McDonald, who was known for his flashy suits and raspy sound, asked Twilight star, Nikki Reed to be his wife after only a few short months of dating. According to sources, the couple tied the knot this weekend! Read on for all the wedding details!
American Idol’s season ten contestant, Paul McDonald spent the last 6 months as an engaged man, and now he is officially a married man! According to US Magazine, the 27-year-old crooner tied the knot with Nikki Reed this weekend in Malibu, with about 100 guests on a private ranch. Paul McDonald told the magazine of the wedding: “We were surrounded by our family and friends. We’re so glad this day has come!”
The couple met back in March, at the premiere of “Little Red Riding Hood” and they felt an instant connection. A month later, they moved in together, and in June they were engaged. According to Nikki, Paul did most of the wedding planning as she told MTV earlier this year: “He’s doing a lot of it, he is. He’s, like, taking control. He sits with his computer in between songs and is kind of on a roll with everything.”
The couple’s love story is not something Paul McDonald expected, but he was pleasantly surprised when he fell for Nikki Reed. Paul gushed to MTV: “She’s amazing. She’s the perfect girl. We fit each other; when you know, you know, and she’s the one.” Congratulations to the happy couple!
