OMFG! Pop the champagne! Our beloved Gossip Girl star Blake Lively tied the knot with beau Ryan Reynolds in a secret wedding ceremony this weekend. A source told People magazine that the event took place Sunday night at Boone Hall Plantation in Mt. Pleasant, S.C., just outside of Charleston.
At the reception — which took place under a white tent at the plantation after the ceremony — Florence Welch (of Florence and the Machine) performed three songs live (she and Blake are really good friends). Bette Midler also sang. And, there was a deejay who kept the party going after the live performances.
Word is that the celebration included close friends and family only (around 60 guests), but some Hollywood types including Blake’s manager attended.
Local radio station 95.1 FM’s Kelly Gukanovich told 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… Ryan has always loved it here and when he got together with Blake, he started to bring her here, too.”
This is Blake’s first marriage and Ryan’s second (he was previously married to Scarlett Johansson).
