Watch as Vampire Diaries Star Ian Somerhalder Officiates A Wedding [Video]

A video of Ian Somerhalder officiating his friend's wedding.

Ian Somerhalder officiates weddingIt’s no secret that Ian Somerhalder is a man of many trades. He not only sizzles as Damon Salvatore on The Vampire Diaries, but he also rallies on behalf of the environment and furry creatures everywhere through his nonprofit organization, the Ian Somerhalder Foundation (ISF). Likewise, he’s not only a male model but he also constructs original pieces of furniture with his bare hands through his ecofriendly venture, Built of Barnwood, which he co-owns with his brother Bob Somerhalder. And just when we figure this TVD stud has done it all, he goes ahead and surprises us all by officiating a wedding!

Check out the video below to witness Ian Somerhalder performing his assistant Jessica’s October 27th ceremony in Atlanta, Georgia, and bringing tears to everyone’s eyes while trying to fight back a few of his own. Ian makes an appearance throughout the video but his starring moment begins at 2:30. Enjoy:

Marriage is perhaps the greatest and most challenging adventure in human relationships. No ceremony can create your marriage — only you can do that. Through love and patience and believing in one another. Through supporting one another, to learning to forgive — big one — and learning to appreciate your differences and by learning to make the important things matter and to let everything else go.” (The romantic and uplifting instrumental track playing during the vow exchange, in case you’re curious, is “Howard Sees” the Sky by Kerry Muzzey.)

Seriously, can you imagine Damon Ian — decked out in a crisp tux — showing up to one of your big life events, delivering a touching speech, and then just milling around, sipping on cocktails, and getting down on the dance floor? It’s a dream come true! To be honest, we have no idea how the bride and groom kept it together and manage not to faint at that exact moment. If Ian was saying all these inspirational things while boring his mesmerizing blue eyes into our souls, we surely would have experienced a feverish shock and collapsed right then and there!

Congratulations to the lovely couple — Paul and Jessica — on their marriage, and kudos to Ian Somerhalder for his heartfelt blessings and for helping the newlyweds embark on their life as husband and wife in such a memorable way.

So tell us: What did you think of Ian Somerhalder’s speech? And did you spot Nina Dobrev happily snapping pictures in the background (hint: 2:21)? Comment away!

    Wow, just look at her smile, now that is when you now it’s true love….. You rarely see a girl smile so proudly on her wedding day. You can actually feel the love deep inside you when these two look at each other. That kind of love is not often found anymore, so when you find it, you hold on to it so tight and never let it go.

    Congratulations to the both of you and may you have the life together that you deserve.
