Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively: New Wedding Details!
People mag has the latest details on the couple’s rustic nuptials at Boone Hall Plantation in a new cover story, including the romantic vows, music and whimsical fun for family and friends at the reception.
A source told the magazine, “They promised to support and love each other and to make each other laugh. [Ryan] said he would treasure Blake; she said she would adore him. The whole time they were beaming.”
Later on, Blake’s eyes “started to well up” as her friend Florence Welch of Florence + the Machine performed “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.”
An insider added, “A lot of people started to well up, actually.”
After-dinner s’mores and a paper lantern sendoff added a touch of fun for guests at the reception.
The bride and groom were spotted days later strolling around Charleston, hand-in-hand, enjoying a local honeymoon.
“They were just being so cute, holding hands, shopping and waving at people who were saying congratulations. [Lively] was so cute! She was smiling the whole time,” an observer, Erin Ponton, toldPeople.
She added, “[They went] into a Louis Vuitton store, not paying too much attention to anyone in the world but [each other].”

Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds’ Wedding: Inside the Ceremony
[E!] Ryan Reynolds is Canadian and Blake Lively‘s from California, but that doesn’t mean they didn’t want a Southern wedding!
The Green Lantern costars said “I do” this weekend at Boone Hall Plantation in Mount Pleasant, S.C., just outside of Charleston. Although reps for the actors are staying mum on their nuptials, we’ve got all the need-to-know info on Blake and Ryan’s special day.
Their Wedding Reception Was Straight Out of The Notebook: No, we didn’t confuse Ryan Reynolds and Ryan Gosling just then. But Boone Hall Plantation was used as the summer home of Allie (Rachel McAdams) in the 2004 film The Notebook. The planatation has also been featured on American Idol, Army Wives and North and South. A rep for Boone Hall Plantation told E! News, however, this is not the same location whereReese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe were married in 1999.
It Was Small but Star-Studded: Around 60 guests reportedly attended the intimate ceremony, but it still had some Hollywood glitz. Blake’s friend Florence Welch (of Florence and the Machine) performed; however, a rep for Bette Midler disputed a People magazine report claiming she also sang at the ceremony.
The Honeymooners: A source tells E! News that the newlyweds are still in South Carolina and have yet to embark on a honeymoon, but plan to do so later this week. They were spotted out in town earlier today.
They Said “I Do” Designer Style: Per Martha Stewart Weddings (who had exclusive coverage of the event) Blake said “I do” in a custom Marchesa gown, while Ryan wore a Burberry tuxedo. Christian Louboutin designed the bride’s shoes, and the couple’s rings were designed by jeweler Lorraine Schwartz. More coverage of their southern wedding will be featured in the December issue of Martha Stewart Weddings.
The Newlyweds Have an Affinity for Chucktown: Perlocal radio station 95.1, there have been “quite a few sightings of Ryan and Blake in Charleston over the past three months.” The couple has been seen “going to restaurants on King’s Street and have become somewhat regulars in the area.” Although they recently bought a home together in Bedford, N.Y., we have to wonder if they’re considering a move to the Palmetto state.
Second Time’s the Charm: While this was Blake’s first trip down the aisle, it wasn’t Ryan’s. The 34-year-old actor married Scarlett Johansson in 2008 in a quiet ceremony in British Columbia. The duo announced their separation in December 2010 and finalized their divorce in July 2011.
Congrats to Mr. and Mrs. Ryan Reynolds! <3

Reps for the supremely-secretive couple have not yet returned requests for comment. But, of course, even if it took a few extra days, the Green Lantern costars are certainly marriednow.
Meanwhile, the Lorraine Schwartz diamond-rocking Lively is already back at work following all the excitement kicked up by her dash to the altar.
