Forget about all those other secret celeb weddings, this one takes the (probably five-tiered, very elegant and tasty) cake!
Hollywood couple Ryan Reynolds andBlake Lively got married at Boone Hall Plantation in Mt. Pleasant, S.C., just outside of Charleston tonight, E! News confirms.
A source tells E News! that the guests included close friends only, but also some Hollywood types, including Blake’s manager. Additionally, the source says that people around Blake are very shocked that she and Reynolds tied the knot so fast and points out she only within last year “got over” splitting with Leonardo DiCaprio.
The newlywed’s reception took place underneath a large white tent with music from Lively’s friend Florence Welch (yes, the one from Florence + the Machine) along with a deejay. A source told People that the actress’ mother and sister were in town and had been spotted grabbing lunch with Bette Midler—who also reportedly sang at the ceremony—earlier this weekend.
News of the top secret ceremony was first tipped off when a local radio station, 95.1 FM, tweeted, “Hold up, there’s another story that it’s Ryan Reynolds and he married Blake Lively at the Cotton Docks today!”
Kelly Gukanovich, from the radio station, tells E! News, “A few days ago, I heard Ryan was back in town. Then today, lots of signs went up at Boone Hall Plantation stating that it was holding a private event, so no one could get into the area. I also started hearing rumors that a celebrity wedding was taking place.”
She added, “I am being told there were around 60 people at the event and that a local restaurant may have catered it. Ryan has always loved it here and when he got together with Blake, he started to bring her here, too.”
The stars’ reps were not immediately available for comment.
Just a couple months ago, wedding rumors about the duo went wild, but a source confirmed to E! News that the two hadn’t swapped vows—yet, apparently.
The Green Lantern costars’ relationship first went public less than a year ago when they were spotted together at multiple locations. Once word was out that these two were an item, it was like they were inseparable, and they even started nesting together (you know—kinda but not really living together).
Reynolds married Scarlett Johansson in 2008 and the couple divorced two years later, citing irreconcilable differences. Lively’s previously dated Leonardo DiCaprio and herGossip Girl costar Penn Badgley.
Congratulations to the newlyweds!
