It's been two years since Twilight star Nikki Reed and American Idol alum Paul McDonald tied the knot, and on Oct. 16, the couple celebrated their anniversary with a date night full of pampering.
"We kept it low key this year," Reed told PEOPLE at the Unlikely Heroes Award dinner and gala Saturday night. "So we went to a midnight spa session. It's amazing. This place called Voda Spa on Santa Monica. We did a couples thing."
Reed, who also performed on stage with her husband at the event to raise awareness against human trafficking, says she's learned a lot about marriage over the past two years.

Guests at an event in West Hollywood were in for a rare treat from Nikki Reed and hubby, Paul McDonald on Tuesday night.
The former Twilight actress and American Idol alum performed three co-written acoustic songs at Erik Wahl's UNthink: Rediscover Your Creative Genius book launch, where Reed couldn't keep her eyes off her man while they were on stage.
"At the event, they talked about how they have polar opposite pre-performance rituals," a partygoer tells PEOPLE. "He's a 'rock 'n' roller' who drinks whiskey. And she isn't much of a drinker, so she just meditates and takes deep breaths before going on stage."

Nikki Reed is a happily married woman, but she says a successful Hollywood relationship doesn't come easy.
"I feel like especially being in this crazy, weirdo world that we're in, where we're making movies and people are on tour, it's just so easy to lose track of what's important," the Twilight actress, 24, recently told PEOPLE.
But Reed and her American Idol alum hubby, Paul McDonald, 28, do their best to beat the odds of failing at an industry marriage.

After meeting and greeting throngs of fans waiting for hours outside the San Diego Convention Center, the stars of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2, Ashley Greene, Kellan Lutz, Nikki Reed and more, headed to Hard Rock Hotel's Float Lounge to party.
While some (like Peter Facinelli and new dad Jackson Rathbone) skipped the red carpet, newlyweds Reed and hubby Paul McDonald walked together, and the former Idol contestant waited patiently, sipping a drink while his wife did interviews. When she finished, he snaked his arm around her waist, then Reed gave her hubby's butt a little pinch before heading inside the party, where the couple mingled with fellow guests.
Lutz seemingly started the night with dessert: he was spotted snacking on frozen yogurt inside a VIP cabana, though he later grabbed a slider from a waitress's tray.

Nikki Reed stands by what she said in November shortly after getting hitched: She and her American Idol alum hubby Paul McDonald want kids "one day," but definitely not any time soon.
"Maybe I'm wrong, but I feel like it's a mistake for people to get married and then just [have kids right away]," the Twilight star, 24, told PEOPLE last week at the MTV Movie Awards at the Gibson Amphitheater in L.A.
"I feel like it is the pressure of the family making them do it. We want to travel and be able to fly on an airplane without a baby and just have freedom."
Aside from their own personal preference not to dive right into parenthood, the happy couple doesn't really have the time.

And they're in no rush to expand their family any time soon.
