Marriage has done wonders for Nikki Reed.

The 23-year-old starlet couldn't stop smiling as she promoted the latest Twilight Saga film, Breaking Dawn Part, in Rome today.

The brunette beauty has been glowing and grinning non-stop on a European press tour for the film despite having to leave Paul MacDonald, her husband of just two weeks, at home in Los Angeles.

She and the season ten American Idol contestant tied the knot on October 16.

They have had something of whirlwind romance after meeting and falling in love back in April.

Although her face and skin was lit with the natural glow of happiness, she enhanced her look with a fabulous frock, as well.

Also attending the Italian photocall was co-star Jackson Rathbone, who plays Jasper, the vampire brother of her character, Rose, in the film.

There was a lot of love inside the Auditorium Parco Della Musica's Lancia Cafe today as the two co-stars recalled their first meeting.

but sweet words for one another

The 26-year-old actor reminisced: 'I remember the first tiem we met. We were at the airport heading to the film's set. I had my beloved guitar and the agent at check-in did not want me to carry it on the plane, but for me it was really important.'

'Nikki was there and convinced them to let me carry it aboard [the aircraft]. From day one, Nikki was on my side.'

After his touching statement, the actress looked at her co-star and said: You are wonderful.'

He responded: 'You are a beautiful person.'

Despite their words of love onstage, Jackson, along with the rest of her Twilight co-stars, failed to attend her October wedding.

Whether their words are genuine or not remains to be seen, but it's a fact that the two will be spending a lot of time together in the upcoming month.
