Paul McDonald and Nikki Reed are married

Nikki Reed of "Twilight" fame and Paul McDonald of "American Idol" floral-embroidered-suit fame were married Sunday in Malibu, capping a March-October romance that has nothing to do with their relative ages and everything to do with the whirlwind nature of their relationship.

McDonald, 27, and Reed, 23, got engaged over the summer after meeting in March at the premiere of "Little Red Riding Hood," when he was a contestant on the most recent season of "American Idol." They'd moved in together in May.

"Yesterday was the most amazing day of my life," McDonald said Monday on Twitter. "[E]verything was perfect. I'm officially a MARRIED MAN! Woohoo!"

The bride and groom "couldn't be happier" after getting hitched on a private ranch, surrounded by about friends and family, they told Us Weekly on Sunday. Reed's gown was designed by Tacari, Us reported, a bridal jewelry brand (yes, you read that correctly) that also designed the couple's wedding bands and her engagement ring.

And though McDonald maybe was amazed, Reed related a slightly different vibe: "Yesterday was the most magical day of my life," she tweeted Monday.

Congrats, kids. Keep smiling -- and come November, maybe we'll see you both on the "Breaking Dawn -- Part I" red carpet.
