"True Blood" stars Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer wed Saturday evening at a private residence in Malibu, Calif., UsMagazine.com has confirmed. Guests -- many of them bearing gifts in purple boxes and with purple bows -- included Elijah Wood and "True Blood" costar Carrie Preston with husband Michael Emerson ("Lost"). Paquin, 28, and Moyer, 40, exchanged their vows beneath a tent across the street from the beach.
The couple announced their engagement last August. Connecting over daily breakfasts at a West Hollywood cafe, they began dating a few months after filming first began in 2008 for HBO's smash vampire series, now in its third season. On the show, Paquin (a 1994 Oscar-winner at age 11 for her role in "The Piano") plays Sookie Stackhouse, the psychic, mortal lover to vampire Bill Compton (Moyer); their first kiss occurred onscreen.
But the duo waited until February 2009 to debut their real-life romance -- a delay that was "very intentional on both our parts," British actor Moyer explained at the time. "It was very important to me that the cast and crew we were working with didn't feel it was fickle....We didn't want to take anything away from the show."
