OMG: Blake Lively & Ryan Reynolds were quietly married in South Carolina

I told you so! Sort of. I predicted some parts of this, but not others. To be fair, many people predicted that Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds were definitely on the marriage path. But I thought that when they did become engaged, everyone would know about the engagement and the wedding would be a big deal, like… the build-up would be huge. But as it turns out, Ryan Reynolds’ dong has magical powers. It can magically turn a once hardcore-famewhore into a demure, 1950s housewife with no desire to famewhore her wedding. MAGIC!

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.

Lively and Reynolds have been in nesting mode since buying a home in Bedford, N.Y., earlier this year. They have subsequently been seen working out together at a local gym, as well as spending quality time with their families in New York and Vancouver, where Reynolds, PEOPLE’s 2010 Sexiest Man Alive, was born.

The two, who costarred together in 2011′s Green Lantern, have stayed relatively mum about their relationship, though Lively, 25, did tell Marie Claire this summer, “It’s definitely attractive when a man can dress well.”

Reynolds, 35, was previously married to Scarlett Johansson. The couple divorced in 2010 after two years of marriage. This is the first marriage for Lively, who previously dated her Gossip Girl costar Penn Badgley.

It’s pretty amazing that they were able to get this done without “someone” leaking all of the details weeks in advance. As for the wedding… it sounds really nice. I would love to know the guest list. I would love to know if they’ll sell (or give away) any photos from the event – my guess is no, they won’t. I’ve already gotten some tweets about how they won’t last… seriously? Blake has been working this angle since the beginning – this was her goal all along. This is what she wanted, and she got Ryan Reynolds down the aisle within a YEAR of dumping Leonardo DiCaprio for Ryan. Face it, ladies and gentlemen: this one is going to last. Blake is really, really into it, and as for Ryan… he just loves a blonde with big boobs. He’s happy. I think Blake will probably get pregnant within a year too, you know.

    I don’t know if it’s going to last given it is still Hollywood. Something about her still doesn’t resonate with me. I don’t follow her work but I don’t know she doesn’t seem to do more than act and bake. But I hope you’re right, I hope it does last. Ryan seems like a nice person and if she makes him happy- that’s great.

  2. phaksi says:

    OH MY GOD! I didnt think they were that serious. If she really is a famewhore like you say Ryan is a downgrade from Leo

  3. Katyusha says:

    She’s quite possibly the first person I’ve ever been jealous of; and that’s pretty hard to do.

    Congrats! Lucky bitch.

  4. Shitler says:

    P.s. Blake should write a dating manual. I would buy that

  5. Tifygodess24 says:

    Don’t discredit a fame whore- once one always one. I would put money on it that we will see pictures very soon in People Magazine , since they were the first ones to break it last night. And I’m sure they will be getting a pretty penny for them since it was such a surprise. It’s not in Blake’s nature to be quiet , but money does talk. I bet this was Planned out for a while.

  6. Vee says:

    I love these two! I wish them the best!

  7. CamColty says:

    Good for them!! But let’s face it. 97 percent of hollywood marriages don’t last.

  8. Lee says:

    Congratulations to them both! I’m not really surprised it was quiet, based on his history. Good for them.

  9. Brown says:

    I’m an SC girl and Mt. Pleasant/Charleston is beautiful. I have always found Blake insufferable but I have to admit, I’m impressed they went so low key with the wedding. Maybe I’ve been wrong about her. Hope it lasts!

  10. emmieapricot says:

    I never paid attention to her age but how is she only 25?! She could easily pass for 35.

  11. Boxy Lady says:

    Awww Ryan Lochte is gonna be crushed. Anyway congrats to them. She has made herself out to be way more domestic than ScarJo which he seems to like. I think they might last longer than a lot of folks think.

  12. Marta says:

    Mr.Magical Dong and Miss.Once Chanel are item. Modern couple looking great!!Congrats

  13. pretty says:

    Blake has a man face.
    Ryan is prettier than her.
    yeah i’m jealous. he’s HOT! ! Damn..

  14. brin says:

    Congratulations….hope it lasts!

  15. Prettytarheelfan says:

    Woohoo! They got married in my town-literally across a couple of fields and tidal creeks! If I had known about the wedding, I would have ditched our RedZone party to stalk like a dork!

  16. Bellabumbum says:

    This will last. They’re both into eachother. He has a lot of female friends which says a lot about his character, he’s a good guy. He doesn’t mind settling down, he’s hot, funny. Neither of them is a brain trust, so they are pretty perfect for eachother, they love fashion and home life.
    May they be very happy and have children with her eyes and his nose.

  17. Mimi says:

    WAIT: Blake was seen working out? Does this mean she drank champagne at her wedding too? The horror!

  18. Rhea says:

    Wow, Ryan seems to get married fast when he’s serious with a girl. I thought after Scarlett he would be more cautious. Congrats 4 them both!

  19. Mara says:

    Beautiful couple but i don’t think will last because they are still young and actors who easily get divorced in Hollywood

  20. QQ says:

    WOW The People from a CDAN gross hook up during their movie Item Go to This?!?!?

    For what is worth she must have turned it around for him and viceversa cause alledgely he was like “sure we’ll hook up again, if there is time” and although she is a BIG ASS Famewhore SHE has toned it down and YET still, This is a guy that was photographed all of 3 times with Johanssen so he too have to have consented to these leaks on some level

  21. NerdMomma says:

    Maybe she fell in love and her priorities changed. They seem like a really cute match and I hope they make each other happy for years to come. I also hope they release pictures. I love to see that girl in clothes.

  22. Feebee says:

    I hope this works for his sake. It’ll be horrible to be under 40 with 2 strike outs.

    Well done on just getting it done… good luck to them both.

  23. Mia 4S says:

    Congrats to Mr. And Mrs. Unbelievably Boring!

  24. Izzy says:

    I don’t get all the hate for Blake. Her styling and acting skills may need work, but many others in Hollywood are guilty of the same.

    Anyway, this wedding is the opposite of famewhore. Maybe she’s just matured! They seem like a pretty low-key, happy couple.

  25. The Original Mia says:

    My money is on a pregnancy.

    Got to admire her, though. She knew she wanted him & has been dogged in her pursuit. But can we please stop with the nonsense that these two didn’t hook up until after his divorce? You know she wasn’t just baking him chocolate cookies on set.

  26. sara says:

    He’s one of those pathetic people who has to be in a relationship all the time. He’s been engaged three time and married twice in five years. Really unattractive.

    • Kim says:

      So it’s pathetic to want to be in a relationship? Really?

    • Lem says:

      It’s been longer than 5 years hasn’t it. Goodness me, I hope so.
      I find I am out put off by type. – even in friendship

    • NM6804 says:

      Only people like JLo deserved to be called out on that. Men like Depp and Pitt also romanced and engaged quickly, but that’s considered romantic. With women it’s desperate. Double standards and all. Although I give Reynolds credit for going after decent people with jobs and not douchebags or leeches.

      In the end, Lively probably saw that he was the type to romance, engage and marry quick so she took her chance. I’m sure they are in love but I agree that it’s not a good look on Reynolds to never take a break in his love life.

      Now the gossip of Theron moving too fast seems kind of a slap in the face to her. Girl just had to take it easy and who knows, she might have been the one walking down the aisle if that’s what she wanted (I think she just wanted a baby).

  27. serena says:

    I don’t really get those two, I mean she is rather meh and has almost no talent. And I can’t get hot looking at him at all, also I really don’t think he’s that big of an actor.

    So is that a big deal?

    Anyway I bet Scarjo is pissed.

    • lulu says:

      why Would Scarlett be pissed? she looks like she is really DONE with him, she is a sexy smart woman why would she care anymore about this duck and his meh wife… I bet this is not going to last, mark my words.

      • TG says:

        I defended Scarlett in an earlier comment today saying I find her sexy and I like to watch her movies and that I don’t hate her because I don’t read too much about her, but I wonder why everyone says she is so intelligent. I guess I was turned off by her intelligence when I read an interview about Scarlett and Stella McCartney was quoted in the mag about how she met ScarJo at a party and Scarlett said something to the effect of “nature vs nurture” as a conversation starter and McCartney was blown away by this and was used to talking to people with no thoughts in their heads she thought this meant ScarJo had real thoughts. For me, I realized in that moment that most of the celebs (acting, singing, fashion design, etc) are shallow and have no intelligence or conversation. It seems like something one would read in Glamour magazine on How To Make People Think You are Intelligent. Like Bridgette Jones did before the launch party with Hugh Grant (can’t remember his name in the flick).

  28. Miss bee says:

    She’s said in more than one interview that she never works out or goes to the gym, yet I have seen photos of her and Ryan in gym gear going to the gym, which is also mentioned in this article. Why is Blake so obsessed with being little miss perfect? girls who actually do have a fast metabolism are not the ones who feel like they need to mention it all the time in interviews…she’s an irritating cliche.

  29. kay says:

    talk about chasing marriage.
    him, not her.

  30. Samigirl says:

    Well, that escalated quickly. Congrats to the happy couple!

  31. L says:

    Wow. Ryan Reynolds sure marries them fast. And always seems to marry them in secret out in the woods (scarjo?) It’s weird.

    He’s a serial monogamist, so I don’t expect this to last, but I expect him to get married again.

  32. menlisa says:

    I’m not a fan on Blake but congrats to the both of them!
    I think they will be one of the longer lasting couples.
    No way will Lively sign divorce papers!

    She got him to put a ring on it within a YEAR!

    Girl got game
    * sheepishly bows down*

  33. Aria says:


    I know this is not a pro Blake site but I root for her. She seems nice, not too talented but nice and I wish her well.

  34. Talie says:

    You’re kind of right though about the 1950s reference…she has been acting very Martha ever since she met him. It’s a huge difference from what we know about Scarlett, who will probably have a melt down over this.

  35. Melanie says:

    Wow! That was fast. They are a gorgeous couple and I wish them the best of luck.

  36. normades says:

    I think it will last longer than most Hwood relationships because these 2 seem to be pretty serious people with similar ambitions. ScarJo was obs not ready to settle down so RR found someone who was (ditto for Blake leaving Leo). They’ll have kids soon and she’ll continue to be insufferable with her goody-goody “I bake cupcakes” shtick.

  37. NM6804 says:

    That must sting for Scarjo! While she was out regretting their divorce, he very much had marriage in mind with his ex co-worker. A woman who loves to play the pr-game and coaxed Reynolds into doing the same. And she succeeded. Ouch.

    • littlestar says:

      The funny thing is, when I heard the rumour last night that they were supposedly married, my first thought was – I wonder what Scarlet Johanson (sp?) thinks?! Haha. Great minds think a like ;) .

      In all seriousness though, I really would love to know what ScarJo is thinking.

  38. Wizzer says:

    Good Luck to them
    I dunno whether to admire Ryan for his serial monogamy or wonder if he has emotional issues.

  39. really says:

    I don’t care how pretty Boone plantation is, I wouldn’t get married on the grounds where slaves worked and lived. There are even “slave cabins” preserved on the old “slave street”. It’s an important historic place that should be seen and discussed, but I sure as hell wouldn’t hold a celebration there.

    • SmokeyBlues says:

      I thought the same thing. I have a historical mind (sounds like you do, also) and such history makes a place exempt from celebrations like this. I’m sure they meant no disrespect, but yeah it would not have worked for my wedding.

    • Fudge you, I'm going to Guam! says:

      Wow, seriously!?
      I am speechless right now.

      People are seriously sick….I doubt if it was a former holocaust camp people would be so quick to have their wedding there! And I know some will say “but that was aaaaaages ago, get over it! it’s not like it’s a plantation right NOW”.

    • tmbg says:

      Hmm, JFK Jr. and his wife got married in secret in a former slave church in Georgia yet I never thought of the implications of marrying in a place like that. I initially thought it was charming, but maybe not…

    • NM6804 says:

      Thanks for the history lesson!

      How ironic that Florence Welch was there. Maybe she sang her No Light, No Light song. Bet she loved the plantation *eyeroll*

    • Melissa says:

      I see your point, and I kind of felt the same way about even visiting a plantation (Boone Hall happened to be the one we went to), but I figured that if you remember history, you’ll be less doomed to repeat it. I’m assuming the money they paid to rent some of the grounds for the wedding goes to preserving the site and making sure others can visit and learn from the experience.

    • Bodhi says:

      Its not like Song of the South or anything. The plantations aren’t all “Yay slavery, we should bring it back!” The cabins are there as part of the historical record. It would be way worse if they tore them down & ignored that very important part of the history of that particular plantation & the South as a whole.

      If its that upsetting to you, I suggest that you never visit any old city in the South as they were ALL lived in & worked in & on by slaves

      • Fudge you, I'm going to Guam! says:

        Uh, sure, whatever…
        But having a wedding there!? Weren’t slaves beaten, raped and worked to death on that plantation (as in most plantations?).
        That’s not somewhere I personally would ever want my wedding, pretty gross if you ask me.

        And I don’ think anyone is saying to tear it down and pretend like it never happened.

      • videli says:

        I think that the original poster referred to the lack of appropriateness of holding the wedding there, not to the reason of keeping the historical site intact.

      • Bodhi says:

        Ok then, don’t get married at a plantation. Plantations are (generally) gorgeous places, perfect for outdoor weddings. I don’t understand why the 1st association people are making with plantation weddings is slavery. My 1st association is always oak trees & spanish moss. But I’m from Charleston & have been to many plantation weddings, so maybe thats a factor.

        One of the most beautiful places in the Lowcountry is Mepkin Abbey, a former plantation that is now a Trappist monastery. I wager that most people who visit, stay for a service or retreat or even get married there are more focused on the serene & contemplative pace of life there rather than the fact the it was once home to slaves. But I don’t know, maybe not

      • Fudge you, I'm going to Guam! says:

        Of course the plantations are ‘gorgeous’, one would hope so since it was built off of the backs of slaves who were whipped to death if the results were anything BUT gorgeous.
        I get that some people romanticize it and it’s all “Gone with the wind” pretty and you can feel like a southern belle for a day, but it’s icky.
        That’s all.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        *sigh* So much concern trolling.

        I agree with Bodhi-just because something awful happened on a piece of land doesn’t mean we can’t take it back and make it a place where beautiful and celebratory things take place.

        It’s not “erasing” or disrespecting the history of the land-it’s simply creating a new life/new memories for it.

      • Bodhi says:

        Thank you, OriginalKitten. Sheesh.

      • Fudge you, I'm going to Guam! says:

        *Sigh* right back at ya.
        Take what back exactly? What is there to take back? The plantations were built off of the backs of the slaves for a reason….what is there to “take back”?
        In order for us to take back something it must have been something else, something that is “ours”, to begin with…Slaves lived where they worked, that is, the plantation.
        That’s where they were raped, beaten, whipped, killed and had their children stolen from them and it’s also where they were sold.

        How can one “create something beautiful” and more importantly, WHY would someone do that? Would you do the same to a former holocaust camp, and don’t tell me it’s “different” because it’s not.
        Again, no one has said anything about “erasing” history.
        We just think it’s inappropriate to have a celebration there.
        Again, would you create a new life/new memories on a former holocaust camp?

      • OriginalTiffany says:

        Let’s get real. I visited Greenwich in the UK and they have all the slave stuff there too. It made me sick to my stomach. Let’s not forget that the DUTCH AND THE BRITS brought them here in their slave boats. I was horrified.

        But, as detestable as it is, it IS history. Not just in the deep South either, Washington DC, VA, etc. Our early presidents who are revered were slave owners. I like to think of it as a reminder of how not EVER to treat another human being again.

        They should be preserved to teach our children about the cruelty of the human spirit and how NOT to behave. We are not the only country to have slavery. It is just as disgusting wherever it happened.

        History sometimes exists to let us know how not to conduct ourselves ever again.

        Personally, if I were a descendant of a slave I’d be damned proud to have achieved in 150 years what they have. I’d want that preserved so I could show my kids, yep that’s what they did to us and look at us now. I’m thinking Obama, Colin Powell and Condi. I’d be proud and the South is beautiful, those cabins do not take away from it. Every nation that had serfs, slaves and the like should be held accountable, not just the US. Dutch slave traders were the worst.

      • Fudge you, I'm going to Guam! says:

        The question is, should you have a *wedding* or a *celebration* on the plantations where men,women and children were raped, brutally beaten, sold, and killed?
        I personally think it’s inappropriate.
        I think the plantations should still be there and serve as a reminder of the very ugly past.
        That’s a piece of history right there that should be preserved and used as a lesson so that history will not repeat itself.
        Pretty oak trees and Spanish moss is not a good enough reason to have a wedding where people were tortured on a daily basis for God knows how many years those poor souls lived.
        I understand this conversations makes Americans, black, white and in between uncomfortable, but it’s a conversation that I think is important.
        I apologize if I am “ruining it”, “it” being your fantasy of a perfect gone with the wind backdrop wedding but I am one of those who can’t just pretend like it’s all well and good, it’s just very inappropriate to me…Anyway, carry on…

      • Bodhi says:

        I’m sure there are people all over the world who would find a wide variety of places inappropriate venues for a wedding. Personally, I find resorts & hotels inappropriate because they are impersonal & run by big corporations, which I try to avoid as much as possible. I’m sure some of my atheist friends were uncomfortable at my Catholic Church wedding, but they didn’t pitch a fit about having to go into a church. (A GWtW-type wedding isn’t my style; we like things simple & reasonably priced)
        If you find them so inappropriate, the answer is simple: don’t get married on one. And refuse to attend one that you might be invited to. You are more than entitled to hold any opinion you want, but the bottom line is this: it isn’t going to change anything. The plantations aren’t going to close to weddings & people aren’t going to stop having them there. People don’t plan major life events around the possible sensibilities of their guests.

        Many of the plantations are held in public trusts dedicated to preserving all of the history of all of the inhabitants. None of them deny or gloss over the horrible mistreatment of the slaves. They are places where the public can come to learn the history of the people, the land, & the culture of the times. I don’t find this conversation uncomfortable at all; as I stated, I am a local &, as such, have heard & participated in it my entire life.

        I am curious, though, as to whether you would deem them inappropriate for the wide variety of other events held on the grounds. At Boone Hall alone there are charity events that have raised millions for local organizations, the annual Highland Games, a haunted house/ ghost tour at Halloween, a pumpkin patch, 5k Rugged Manic run (also a fundraiser), a sunrise service every Easter, living history days, & a whole host of other things.

      • OriginalTiffany says:

        Well Fudge you, you had better find another planet to live on. Guess what the Spanish did to the indigenous people? Guess what we did to the Native Americans, what Russia has done, how about South Africa? Europe? Germany? Spain, Italy? England? Humans tend to do those things and we can’t escape it anywhere.

        Let me know when you find a place where people haven’t been raped, enslaved or murdered because as long as the human race has existed, it has been going on. How about those Israelites building the pyramids? Yet people visit and have parties and life goes on.

        Maybe you can have your party or celebration on the moon or Antarctica. Good luck with the guest list.

    • Syko says:

      You know, if you’re going to avoid doing anything on a piece of land where something bad happened, you will never do anything because bad things have happened in every area of the world.

      Slavery was and is wrong. We all know that. But it is still part of American history, it can’t be erased just because it was wrong. If you could do that, you’d have to get rid of all western expansion as well, because the guys opening up the west weren’t very nice to the Native Americans.

      Plantation homes are lovely, restored to their former beauty, and are wonderful places to have a late summer wedding. Like, bringing some joy to a place that has also known sorrow.

      Just grow up.

    • Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

      Keep these precious plantations, that seems to be the only thing that matters.

  40. Madhubala says:

    Surprised but not shocked if that makes sense. They were serious from the get go and have been inseparable ever since. I can see them having a kid straight away too, it seems to be what they both want. Congrats to them, I see this one lasting.

  41. HillbillyintheCorner says:

    I hate when people say it won’t last…they only been dating a year and generally downing the couple….
    Geez…I knew my husband less then 3 mos…everybody said Oh they will be split in a year…..that was 46 yrs ago…
    Give them a chance…

  42. Cody says:

    I wish them luck. As soon one of them has a major change in their careers, either better or worse, then it will be splitsville. Isn’t that the way it goes in Hollywood. Isn’t this the same pattern he had with Scarlett Johanasson. I hope they have a good prenup.

  43. snappyfish says:

    i’ve never seen her in anything, and he seems like a douchebag, but they have great taste in wedding veneues; i live about 20 minutes from boone hall and it is gorgeous.

  44. EmmaStoneWannabe says:

    Would love to know what Leo thinks right about now.

  45. Sunnyinseattle says:

    I always think of 2 Guys, a Girl and a Pizza Parlor when I see him. Loved that show! :-) Anyone else remember it? It was his first sitcom, I think.

  46. Em12 says:

    WOW!! Congrats to them!! They look like a great couple.

  47. bettyrose says:

    Well, the marriage might last, but this will ruin her career. Marriage & baby at 25 is a pretty bad move for someone who has nothing to offer the industry but sex appeal.

  48. GoodCapon says:

    OMG indeed! I know they’ve been together for more than a year, but I really didn’t think they were a ‘serious’ couple.

    Congrats to them, I guess.

  49. Fudge you, I'm going to Guam! says:

    1. Ryan looks like a young Chevy Chase

    2. Blake and Ryan look like they’re the same age

    3. Blake and Florence Welch could be sisters, they look a lot alike!

  50. Mira says:

    Congrats to the couple! Never understood why Blake is called a famewhore? She has done things most women in hollywood do. I think SJo has been a bigger famewhore than Blake.

  51. Lem says:

    If they married last night… That’s not exactly marrying in secret. Sure. I guess they pulled it off without TMZ at the alter, yet still. What is that? Secret for 6 hours?

  52. Ailine says:

    She kind of hinted at getting married in this Marie Claire interview. She was thinking about which designer would design her gown.

  53. Aria says:

    I want to see her wedding dress.

  54. Jayna says:

    Congrats. They’ve been a lowkey couple, no jumping on couches and making out on red carpets. I like that he’s the marrying kind. Many guys in Hollywood are players.

  55. Tiffany says:

    I can’t believe he got married again so soon after getting divorced in 2010 after a 2 year marriage. That just seems a little rushed, hope he doesn’t make the same mistake twice.

  56. pinchofsalt says:

    They seem like a match. And she did’t flaunt the wedding, I’d say that was classy and mature. Hope they have much happiness.

  57. mln76 says:

    Blake is actually pretty smart…Seems like she realized she wasn’t going to be the huge star she was trying so badly to be last year and now she’s put all that ambition into a marriage (and eventual) family. I think she’s better suited to being a Hollywood wife then huge iconic movie star(which we all know wasn’t ever going to happen). In a few years she can rebrand herself with her fashion/cooking friends as a more down home GOOP maybe even get a talk show?

    • normades says:

      Yes, this is exactly where I think she’s headed with all her cupcake baking.

      She would have loved to have Goopy’s early career (oscar and all), but like you said, that probably won’t happen and she knows it. She will rebrand herself as a happy homemaker/hWood wife fer sure.

    • Minty says:

      That makes sense. Her crap of a tv show (Gossip Girl) has one more season and her film career didn’t blow up. She can still shill for Gucci and Chanel for a short while. Hey, she can take much-needed acting lessons when she’s not working. Some actors noticeably improved over time (Farrah Fawcett comes to mind).

  58. Whatever says:

    Well it’s obvious he just wants to be married. Unfortunately this is not the way to do it. She’s too young, and he’s not going to make her a house wife.

  59. Cletus says:

    well, GODDAMNIT. And in my hometown, too! HOW COULD THEY?

  60. Eva (not Eve) says:

    I wonder if Ruan have Scarlett a heads up. Even if you’re over your ex, I suppose the news that he’s married so quickly can be a little jarring. Maybe that would explain her (sort of) canoodling with a lupine-looking Jated Leto at the DNC.

  61. bns says:

    Two planks of wood get married. Good for them.

  62. doubtingthomas says:

    Ryan is male version of JLo. I don’t think it’s that hard to catch him.
    His body is sick, he is cute and funny. But still dull. They are perfect for each other.
    Still doubt it will stand the test of time though.

  63. carrie says:

    as they’re uninteresting as i think since the begining they’re a real couple and congrats!!

  64. Jayna says:

    I love that he isn’t a modelizer like Leo DiCaprio, only dating tall early twenties super models for a couple of years and moving on over and over again.

  65. Swethaa says:

    In the last pic she looks like Jen Aniston … 40ish

  66. Bodhi says:

    Sorry Kaiser, I give this 6 years TOPS.

    I lave that they got married in my home town!! Charleston is a mega destination wedding place & I figured it was just a matter of time til a celeb couple got hitched there too.

    Personally I think Middleton & Magnolia are FAR prettier plantations (their gardens are gorgeous), but Boone Hall is really pretty too

    • Melissa says:

      Since they got married Sunday evening, maybe they had the whole place to themselves and were able to get married under that canopy/walkway of trees. That is gorgeous!

    • ZenB!tch says:

      I think its up to her. He REALLY wants to be married. ScarJo did not turn into the happy housewife which is what he wants. She was the bigger name. Being the so-called Sexiest Man Alive didn’t help his career any. If Blake wants to be the happy housewife, they will last. If Blake gets an acting break and becomes a bigger name than him she’ll be gone.

      BTW: lack of talent and blandness notwithstanding, I don’t think becoming a bigger name than him is that hard. He blew his Sexiest Man Alive opportunity. That was his shot, he’s over. He doesn’t even have a franchise to fall back on like Bradley Coooper does after this weekend’s major fail at the boxoffice.

  67. thatgirl says:

    So, Kaiser I know that you’re really into this relationship and convinced that it’s the real deal, but I don’t know.

    Blake was really into getting a ring. It kind of seems like that’s been her goal all along, with Penn, Leo, and now Ryan. She has what she wanted: a husband.

    What you have here is two people who are in love with love and marriage, not with each other. (IMHO) I don’t wish them any ill will and hope that everything works out for them just as they plan. Unfortunately, I think it takes longer to heal from the end of a marriage (Ryan and Scarlett’s) and I don’t think you should ever marry the first person you went out with after a divorce!

  68. Guest says:

    Congrats to the newlyweds!!

    Now that is a way to make life affirming decisions and actions(whether wise or fool-hardy) and keep it personal. Marriage is not a poll.

  69. silver says:

    congrat to dem…..they really seem like a match…….i pray they last

  70. Nina Kurtz says:

    The union of two great minds…

  71. TG says:

    I agree with many on here. She seems to be a calculating person, not that that is necessarily bad, but I am surpirsed she married him. Is Ryan Reynolds really a big deal in Hollywood? I would think she would aim higher. But, maybe she is sincere. His eyes are too close together so he looks like a beady eyed rat to me. I don’t dislike him or anything just don’t think he is good-looking.

  72. lisa2 says:

    I hardly see Ryan as a downgrade from Leo..who seems like a man/child to me. When I think of a family man I don’t think of Leo.. Ryan yes. and maybe that is the thing. He is a man in his 30′s that wants a family.. OMG the crime. Women are forever whinnying about men not making a commitment. Then we see a man that does and it is all What is wrong with him.. Women need to get a clue. Some men want a family and they look for a woman that wants what they want. Scarlett didn’t seem to be ready for that and LEO sure as hell not. I think and have said it before Blake dumped Leo.. and she was probably attracted to Ryan and he her. Then they were both free so there you go.

    I’m not a fan of either but they look happy and on the same page. And for couples that to me is very important.

  73. Reece says:

    Alright…Congrats. That’s all I got.

  74. barb says:

    Leo D is gay, so Blake was just a beard for him. Guess she got tired of the gig. Love Ryan Reynolds, but this seems awfully fast. He hardly knows the girl really. He does seem to go for women (girls) who are 10 years younger than he is. And why the big rush? Wait another year, usually when the lust factor has worn off a bit, and then you can see if its going to last.

    • Jayna says:

      Leo isn’t gay. Gisele, a top supermodel, a hot Brazilian, would not spend years with a gay guy. That woman looks like she wants sex three times a day. She’s incredibly wealthy. She had tons of men after her back then. There was no reason for her to spend years with a guy who wasn’t all over her. It’s not like their relationship was lived out in the public. He lives quietly. What would she have gotten from that relationship if he was gay? And to say she was just a beard, they were together a lot and she wasn’t out dating other men those years.

    • Liv says:

      I don’t think Leo’s gay either, but Gisele definitely got more famous when she was with him.

      I think Blake and Leo were just PR and probably friends with benefits…there was probably a contract.

  75. Kristen says:

    Kaiser – Do you think that Jennifer Aniston is ‘fame-whoring’ her wedding?

    I don’t understand, if she’s so private, why should even have or announce an engagement. You don’t have to do that. You don’t have to wear an engagement ring around. You could be engaged for three years, then married and no one could ever find out. Does she really just want all the attention?

  76. Puffy Schmuffy says:

    Coincidence or Conspiracy?
    Did Leo D have a heads up?
    Is that why we were getting these 2 blinds about him settling down?
    Was it one up manship? Hmmmmmmm

  77. ctkat1 says:

    I compare this to Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner. She was totally head over heels for him when they filmed “Daredevil” (seriously, go listen to her gush about him on the red carpet and in interviews for that film) but he was with J.Lo and she was with Michael Vartan. So she waited until he was free and then she moved in and was the refreshing exact opposite of J.Lo. I think that Blake, with her cooking and her domesticity and her “I just want to be a great housewife and mother who sometimes acts” is probably really different from Scarlett Johansson, who dumped Ryan R. and left him reeling.
    Ben and Jen are going to make it, probably in part because she makes it really easy to stay with her (the cheating, etc.). I think it’s going to be a similar marriage- kids and lots of “normal” domesticity thrown out as the message.
    I think Blake is calculating enough in her career to realize that “Boobs McLegsly, the maneating famewhore” wasn’t winning her any fans. So now she’s Mrs. Ryan Reynolds/Betty Crocker/Jennifer Garner. We’ll see.

  78. Emma says:

    I will never understand why people hate her so much. She’s sweet and inoffensive. Basically the opposite of La Lohan yet people treat Blake worse than they treat Lindsay.

    Anyway, how awesome that she got Florence & Bette Midler to perform at the ceremony. This girl must be as charming as she seems.

    • littlestar says:

      I agree. She has an amazing body and pretty face, so I think people tend to be jealous of her. I also think how she plays up being a 50s type housewife and all the name dropping she does kind of turns people off. I think she does it to try and be likeable, but people take it as her being a snob or something.

      • Fudge you, I'm going to Guam! says:

        I’m meh about her, don’t hate her or care much about her but I personally do not think she has a “pretty face”. She’s very average looking imo and I sincerely doubt anyone is jealous of her…there are plenty of beautiful actresses out there that one could be jealous of, Blake is not one of them.

      • Emma says:

        She’s an obviously attractive girl even if she isn’t your type. And there’s much more to jealousy than looks. She has it all. She’s thin, rich, on the cover of Vogue, is friends with Christian Louboutin and Anna Wintour, etc.

    • V4Real says:

      Wow! She has you fooled too.

    • ZenB!tch says:

      She’s one of those Hollywood offspring. I tend to dislike all of them until they prove themselves. Having been born and raised in LA, I think they take work away from more talented actors due to their connections. This also applies to the rich buy themselves a path people like Rooney Mara.

      Goop and Aniston and Jolie all prime examples – only Jolie has proven herself.

      There are male ones too but they are so inconsequential that I can’t think of their names. Michael Douglas proved himself (before I was born).

      • Eléonore says:

        @ Emma: wow you take superficiality to the extreme! I know this is a gossip website, but you seem a little immature in your comments “she has it all because she is thin, rich, and friends with people like Christian Louboutin, on the cover of Vogue etc”…I hope you realize that this is only your definition of having it all and that not everyone shares it! Being thin, on the cover of Vogue and friend with Christian Louboutin (it is a business friendship obviously)is only the dream of some people (and keep in mind lots of girls are thin so I don’t know why you value it so much, it is not uncommon)…and being rich, well, tons of people are much richer than she is so your definition of “having it all” obviously depends on your own personal scale of values!

  79. Onyx XV says:

    Won’t last long. These two are both way too in love with themselves to really love someone else.

  80. Hmmm says:

    Yeah. Like that’s gonna last. She reminds me of Waity Katie.

  81. judyjudy says:

    Quickie secret marriage just a few years after his other quickie secret wedding? How embarrassing.

  82. Shelly says:

    I’m actually really happy for these two. They seem to make sense together. I see their babies being tall and gorgeous.

  83. Bubulle says:

    Me thinks she’s pregnant. Also Lainey is definitely paid by Blake’s PR.

  84. Grace says:

    Once a cheater always a cheater.

  85. Andrea says:

    Wow that was awfully quick! I guess Ryan was itching for a new wife. I dunno this pairing seems odd to be somehow.

  86. storyteller says:

    Wow. They JUST got married and already people are counting down to the divorce! I love gossip as much as the next person but damn, that is cold. And a bit sad. They seem very low key, just going about their lives together. They may not be the greatest actors in the world but they’re not drug addicts, Ryan’s not a womanizer, Blake’s not falling out clubs drunk or getting arrested for drink driving and they’re not flaunting their relationship on tv for money. So why the distaste? Sometimes it feels like people are just hating for hating’s sake.

    Anyway, congrats to the happy couple and the little bundles of joy that will no doubt be on the way soon. Hope it works out for them.

  87. Elena says:

    I know they were serious about the relationship but I’m still taken by surprise. I thought they were going to wait a little longer.

    Anyway, congratulations! I wish them nothing but the best!

  88. Welldun says:

    He should forget his shirt more often…

  89. ruby says:

    I’m on the “it won’t last” team and statistically given this is hollywood chances are I’m right but who knows… Maybe I’m wrong.

  90. The Original Victoria says:

    I personally don’t see anything famewhorey about Blake. But i am tots shocked abt these nuptuials. Ryan has not been right since dumping the goddess Alanis but now that shr has found love, congrats to Blakesey and RyRy. May the divorce be jus as quick and quiet as the marriage. Just saying

    • Liv says:

      1. She calls the paparazzi

      2. Her boyfriends were just actors

      3. Fake nose and breasts

      4. Fake interviews

      Of course there are people much worse than her, but I can understand why most of us don’t like her: she comes across as pretty fake and famewhorey.

  91. vita says:

  92. V4Real says:

    Meli says ScarJo is chubby with cellulite but Blake is toned. I beg to differ, being skinny doesn’t make you toned and I’ve seen untouched photos of Blake in a bikini and she is definetely not toned and I don’t know much about her but her face leaves a lot to be desired. As for the hush hush wedding, well let’s just say; if she’s a famewhore like some people insist she is there’s no better publicity stunt than keeping things quiet to try and prove it isn’t a publicity stunt. If it was so hush hush and they like their privacy than why bother to let us know at all about the wedding. After the ceremony their friends and family should have still remained quiet but a source revealed that they tied the knot. This news is bigger and will get more publicity than if they had announced their engagement.

    • Barbara says:

      Actually a radio broke the news DURING the wedding. I doubt one of the family members – as per Blake wish, as you’re implying – let them know they were getting married while it happened. I suppose someone from the venue and the staff working in the ceremony did it.
      I still have a hard time with people choosing what shit they want to believe. When it’s Brangelina shit they don’t give credit to the magazines, but then when no ones imply Blake slept with Ben Affleck then it’s believable… it’s ridic. There was never any evidence of such. It’s like saying Angelina sleeps with all male leads in her movies. So people love to hate Blake and they’ll buy whatever bullshit Laney or whoever is that said she slept her way up. Which way up? She dated her insignificant co-star in a teen show for three years, they were low key then. It took MONTHS for pics to be taken of Blake and Penn. So yeah, you choose what to believe. I choose to believe what it’s right there to anyone see: Blake and Ryan are crazy about each other and wanted to commit.
      I do agree about Ryan giving a vibe of a serial monogamist. That said, I DOUBT all people who accused him of it love being alone and don’t jump into new relationships fast… I’m absolutely sure of that.
      Hope they last and are happy and will continue for a long time.

  93. Anon73 says:

    i think this marriage is weird, less for Blake and more for Ryan. He has been a little too marriage-happy between the multiple engagements, just divorced / remarried <3 yrs. Ryan has issues. So I feel sorry for Blake on this.

  94. Camille (TheOriginal) says:

    Well played Blake! Congrats to them and well done on getting married without the tabs having any idea that it was going to happen (until after the fact) lol. I wonder if they got engaged at all first and just didn’t tell anyone.

    Years back when RR and ScarHo got married my hubby and I both said they wouldn’t last, and they didn’t. But I get a different feeling about these 2. I give them 7-10 years together at least. I wish them lots of luck.

  95. lori says:

    some sites r saying she wore Marchesa? Maybe this will help them get Weinstien jobs? Horrible! I need a pic!

  96. mimi says:

    Note to Brangelina: this is how its done (when you actually want to marry someone vs. PR thing.

  97. FingerBinger says:

    So Ryan Reynolds is the male version of JLo. Overlapping marriages and relationships. This is the second time he has married a 24 year old actress,but I do hope it works out.

  98. the original bellaluna says:

    I don’t particularly care for either of them (or for having to read over 220 comments, so forgive me if this is a repeat of prior sentiments), but I hope it works out for them.

    Sometimes, it’s just “right” and you know it. (Doesn’t mean it’ll STAY “right,” but I digress…)

  99. Franziska says:

    Is it bad that I’m really jealous? Blake and I are the same age, but I’ve been with my boyfriend for 4.5 years and would love to be married right now. Ahh, the difference millions of dollars will make.

  100. Shoe_lover says:

    Alright- I haven’t read all the comments yet so someone else may have said this but here is my theory.

    I think they have been together longer than a year. Green lantern filmed from March 2010 to August 2010 and RR & SJ announced their split in December 2010. What if BL & RR were having an affair during filming and that’s why RR & SJ split and all those blind items were about Ryan and not Ben Affleck. Then for some reason BL & RR split in 2011 and she starts dating Leo. Then RR is all “baby I miss you. Let’s get married” she ditches Leo, because the whole idea was to get RR jealous and if that didn’t work a trade up to Leo and the rest as they say is history.

    No matter what really happened I think we can all agree that Blake Lively has game

  101. Aubra says:

    +1 to whoever said Blake should write a book!

  102. Kosmos says:

    I don’t care for either ScarJo or Blake, but as far as faces/bodies go, both have their assets & liabilities, neither has it all. I was never sure of the ‘real’ reason that RR & ScarJo split, and I honestly have to say I think it’s a bit too soon for these two to marry. Someone seems anxious for marriage, I wonder which one? Maybe they are both a bit insecure and think that marriage will make everything okay, but we’ll have to see.

  103. Ally says:

    I can’t believe gerbil-face managed to land two young, blonde hotties. He must have a great personality.

  104. Ruffian9 says:

    Any bets on who Ryan’s next wife will be?

    Too soon?

  105. Sam x says:

    Was on twitter earlier, apparently Ryan and Blake’s wedding photos will be appearing in the December issue of Martha Stewart’s magazine, MS confirmed on her twitter account they got married and word on the streets is she helped them organise their wedding too.

    Congratulations to the happy couple and I really do hope this works out for them! :) I don’t know about you ladies I want to see what she wore!


  106. Lee says:

    aww does anyone else miss famewhore-y Blake? The Blake who would show up to events practically falling out of her dress in a biscuit grazing hemline? The one who charted around the world to visit fashion houses and walk red carpets?

    *sigh* she was way more fun than ‘slightly condescending post Reynold’s dong’ Blake.

    That being said – congratulations to the happy couple. I hope their wedding was amazing and that they find happiness with each other.

  107. Fashion Spy says:

    … ” been seen working out together at a local gym”

    Really? But Blake doesn’t work out …

  108. Bek says:

    When I first saw this, I was surprised, but after thinking about it, I don’t know why that was my first reaction. They both like being in serious relationships and they’ve been together for (at least) a year.

    I’m happy for them and will look forward to seeing the wedding photos, even if she wore Marchesa. Let’s hope it’s not a ice skating outfit or a circus costume.

  109. The truth says:

    WHAT is the fuss about her?!!!
    Her boobs are fake, she has no lips, sagging eye lieds, dyed eyebrows and her hair is as a mess. She can’t act just mumble. she was with leo only to leave him for ryan and tell she dated dicaprio. and laney is like ‘oh my god shes so awesome, how did she do it!!’

  110. mln89 says:

    good for them. i’ve often thought about getting married in secret or eloping and then telling everyone about it because i don’t want a huge circus of a wedding. i’m shocked that they managed to keep to keep the wedding until after it happened. that’s kind of amazing.

  111. Emma says:

    It’s strange that people say she’s so boring and they don’t like her yet her posts always get tons of comments analyzing her every move. People have the weirdest and illogical conspiracy theories about her. Like how everything is a game and she plays everyone. Lainey seems to think she’s some ethereal intelligent being who played everyone. I don’t get it? Costars fall in love all the time. Blake does nothing different than any other actor in HWood yet she’s deemed as this media manipulator famewhore. She almost never goes to events that aren’t her own movie premieres and she’s hardly ever papped when people like Minka Kelly are papped daily. She never talks about her relationships or says anything controversial. People just have some crazy mob mentality hate for this girl. People always hate the nice girl.

  112. lady_luck says:

    I don’t particularly have a problem with this girl. Sure, she is vapid and famewhoring (aren’t most of them?) and mumbles like she’s drunk and on valium, but I MUCH MUCH MUCH prefer her to that lowly skank Scarjo.

    And as much as gerbil eyes doesn’t do anything at all for me, and I think he’s as boring as as they come, at least he shows he isn’t afraid of committing to a woman – unlike long life bachelors Looney Clooney and hamster-faced Di Caprio club.
