Remember back in July when Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively got themselves into a little car accident and the police officer listed Blake as Ryan’s wife? Remember there was some chatter that the couple secretly got married and this accident let the cat out of the bag? Well, we know now that the couple were not married back in July … because they went and got themselves married this weekend in South Carolina … and they managed to pull off the nuptials without anyone outside of their inner circle being any the wiser. That’s right, folks, Blake and Ryan got hitched!
It’s been nearly a year since they were first publicly linked – and now Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds are husband and wife. A source confirms to PEOPLE that the couple tied the knot Sunday night at Boone Hall Plantation in Mt. Pleasant, S.C., just outside of Charleston. The reception took place in a white tent at the plantation on Sunday evening. Florence Welch (of Florence and the Machine), a good friend of the Gossip Girl star, performed three songs live, and there was also a deejay who spun tunes. PEOPLE also confirmed that a cake was being driven down from Virginia for the event. Lively’s mother and sister were also spotted in town, and a source told PEOPLE that the two had dinner in Charleston with Bette Midler earlier in the weekend. Reps for the two actors had no comment.
We first heard that Ryan and Blake — Ryley, if you will — were a hot new couple back in October of last year. It wasn’t until the couple spent Thanksgiving together that I knew things had gotten serious (OH and we cannot forget those cute candid photos of the pair lookin’ all lovey dovey in Utah last December). I totally figured they’d end up getting hitched eventually but … damn, they move fast! This is Blake’s first marriage and Ryan’s second (he was previously married to Scarlett Johansson). It took some time but I grew to like these two as a couple. Now they’re man and wife and I wish them nothing but all the happiness in the world! Congrats!!
