Access Hollywood was the first to get insights into Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds’ wedding which was secretly held at Boone Hall Plantation in Mt. Pleasant, S.C. on Sunday. Even though the couple hasn’t made any statement in relation to the wedding rumors, a local radio station in Charleston, South Carolina was the first to share the news.
After dating for almost a year, “Green Lantern” co-stars, Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively tied the knot on Sunday during a private ceremony at the Boone Hall Plantation. The two lovers made sure the press didn’t know anything about their wedding, but close sources have confirmed that the two are now husband and wife.
In addition to family members and close friends, Blake and Ryan invited many celebrities at their wedding. Florence Welch of “Florence and the Machine”, the bride’s best friend, was also asked to perform and keep the guests entertained at the party. Bette Midler was spotted having dinner with Blake’s mother and sister before the wedding day. The American comedienne was present at the reception, too, and sources claim she also interpreted several songs for the young couple.
Ryan met his new wife, Blake, on the set of the movie “Green Lantern”. Tabloids have speculated back then that the two were dating, but the actors managed to keep their relationship away from the media. Blake even stated in a recent interview that she is not involved in a relationship, but she knows the main traits that the perfect man has to have: to be funny and tall. The actress confessed that she likes to wear high heels and being with a shorter man could make her feel uncomfortable. Luckily, Ryan is 6’2″, so the “Gossip Girl” beauty won’t have to worry about being too tall.
This is the first marriage for Blake Lively, who was previously involved in a brief relationship with actor Leonardo DiCaprio. Reynolds, on the other hand, was married to actress Scarlet Johansson between 2008 and 2010 but their marriage didn’t last.
