True Blood actress Evan Rachel Wood married Jaime Bell surrounded by close family and friends during a small ceremony in California on Oct. 30. Wood wore a custom Carolina Herrera Chantilly lace mermaid gown with capped-sleeves and a ribbon waist detail.

“I am so happy for Evan, she is a timeless beauty, and her gown in Chantilly lace captures this perfectly,” Carolina Herrera told Us Weekly.

Here’s what we know: On her wedding day, Wood tweeted, “Words cannot describe the happiness I am feeling. Overwhelming.” She also tweeted that the couple’s wedding song was “(Today I Met) the Boy I’m Going to Marry.“–a classic from the movie Father of the Bride.
