After a false alarm a few weeks ago, I initially wasn’t going to fall for reports that Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds were married. Since they’re both beautiful celebrities who don’t talk about their personal lives, rumors are bound to fly about their relationship. However, with actual details of their wedding being reported by People, I think this time it’s legit. The couple has been dating for about a year after they worked on 2011’s The Green Lantern together.
Back in July, TMZ acquired a police report from an incident in which Reynolds believed that a photographer was following him in Bedford Hills, New York, where he shares a home with Lively. The report says that a police officer spoke to Reynolds and “his wife,” but the name of the wife in question was redacted. It was assumed that the name originally on the report was Lively’s because the two were photographed together on the day of the incident (perhaps by the photographer following them?). The Internet jumped on this assuming that it meant that Reynolds and Lively were already secretly married, but Lively’s rep confirmed that they were not. Bedford Hills police wouldn’t comment on what made them think the couple was married. Once I recovered from the heart-stopping thought that Ryan Reynolds was off the market again, I decided that it wasn’t worth following rumors about these two.
With all of that, you can imagine my surprise when reputable news outlets reported the pair’s marriage just under two months later. Lively and Reynolds tied the knot on Sunday, September 9th in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina. Sundays are typically cheaper…I wonder if they got a discount. Sundays are also not booked as far in advance at wedding venues. Just speculating here.
It all went down at Boone Hall Plantation, with the reception taking place in a tent. Florence Welch, also known as the singer of Florence + the Machine and friend of the bride, performed three songs. Musical duties were otherwise handled by a DJ. People reports that the cake was driven all the way from Virginia. That’s not just around the corner; were there no good bakeries in South Carolina? Was the cake in Virginia the best they’d ever eaten?
To help confirm wedding suspicions, the stars’ relatives were seen in the area. Lively’s mother and sister were seen in Mount Pleasant. They were in Charleston earlier in the weekend having dinner with Bette Midler because famous people stick together.
This is Lively’s first marriage, but the second for Ryan Reynolds. He divorced Scarlett Johansson in 2010 after two years of marriage. Well, if we came to terms with his first marriage and his engagement to Alanis Morrisette back in the day, we’ll recover from this marriage, too.
Reynolds was People’s Sexiest Man Alive in 2010, and Lively is gorgeous enough to have dated Leonardo DiCaprio between supermodels. Any children that may result from this marriage will give the Jolie-Pitt spawn a run for their money in a genetic beauty contest.
