Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds Super-Secret Wedding: New Details Revealed!
Oh, happy day! We're still reeling (read: stuffing our face with cake) over the news that Gossip Girl's Blake Lively (Serena) married her boyfriend of one year, Ryan Reynolds, in a top-secret ceremony in Mt. Pleasant, S.C. on Sunday, September 9. Sob — Loubies for everyone!
In an effort to keep the wedding low-key and private, the entire event was hush-hush, but details are finally starting to emerge. Blake has great taste, so naturally she hired Martha Stewart's wedding minions to plan her affair — and pics of the big event will be featured in the December issue of Martha Stewart Weddings!
“Ryan and Blake opted for an intimate, personalized party, gathering their immediate and extended family at a rustic barn in South Carolina,” Martha Stewart's wedding website writes. “Ryan, who has been a long-time fan of Charleston, chose to mark this special occasion in one of his favorite towns.”
“It was amazing,” Blake's older brother Jason revealed. “I traveled all around the country and rented cars from out of state to keep it under wraps. I think they did a good job. It was spectacular.”
Blake and Ryan exchanged Lorraine Schwartz wedding rings during the ceremony, which was followed by a "fun-filled carnival hour" and reception where 70 guests enjoyed a $3,000 wedding cake by Maggie Austin Cakes in Maryland.
So, what did the bridal party wear? Blake rocked a Marchesa ball gown (designed by her buddies Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig), complete with hand-draped silk tulle at the bodice, with crystal and rose gold embroidery. Her bridesmaids matched her in blush silk chiffon Marchesa with crystal embroidery. Meanwhile, Ryan and his groomsmen wore custom Burberry suits with leather suspenders designed by Christopher Bailey.
Marchesa and Burberry? Sigh, this affair to remember has the Gossip Girl’s seal of approval!
