Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds got married on Sunday, as we discussed yesterday. When I wrote about it yesterday, I said, “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 was thinking about People Magazine or Us Weekly (never the lower-tier tabloids) when I wrote that – I didn’t even consider the idea that Blake could have organized a photo shoot with a monthly magazine. Not just any monthly either – Martha Stewart Weddings! OMG. Blake truly is a 1950s housewife throwback. Amazing.
Blake and Ryan’s wedding was a good thing. Martha Stewart’s team worked with Lively, 25, and Reynolds, 35, and planner Tara Guérard of Soiree in Charleston, S.C, to create an “intimate, personalized party” for immediate and extended family “in a rustic barn,” according to Martha Stewart Weddings.
“From the heartfelt ceremony to the fun-filled carnival hour and elegant reception, it was a truly enchanting celebration,” according to the magazine, which promises more details in its December issue.
The ceremony took place at Boone Hall Plantation in Mt. Pleasant, S.C., Sunday just outside of Charleston. “Ryan, who has been a long-time fan of Charleston, chose to mark this special occasion in one of his favorite towns,” according to the magazine.
Lively wore a one-of-a-kind Marchesa couture bridal ball gown with a hand-draped silk tulle bodice adorned with crystal and rose gold embroidery.
Her bridesmaids wore blush silk chiffon Marchesa gowns with crystal embroidered detail. The women all wore shoes from Christian Louboutin.
The groom and groomsmen donned Burberry suits with custom leather suspenders designed by Ryan’s friend Christopher Bailey. The couple exchanged rings by Lorraine Schwartz.
The wedding, first reported by PEOPLE, also had a reception held in a white tent at the plantation. Florence Welch (of Florence and the Machine), a good friend of the Gossip Girl star, performed three songs live for guests.
I am in physical PAIN over the fact that Blake wore Marchesa. She was the face of Chanel (purses). She’s the current face of a Gucci perfume. How is it that Blake “Baller” Lively had to saunter and mumble her way through her wedding in a GD Marchesa gown?!? You know she looked like an ice-skater MESS. You know it’s going to be tacky and budget. And Ryan managed to wrangle Christopher Bailey for his suit! Bailey is the head of Burberry – and you know Bailey was probably horrified to learn the bride was going to wear Marchesa. HOW GAUCHE. Seriously. Just to give you a taste, this is what Blake looks like in Marchesa:
