Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds tie the knot

This news came as a surprise to me. I knew that they are an item after their movie The Green Lantern but I never expected that they will tie the knot.

The couple was married quietly on Sunday (September 9, 2012) in Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina.

Though the wedding was kept super secret, all signs pointed to some kind of big event going down in the small town over the weekend. Blake’s family, in from New York, had been spotted dining together with Bette Midler, and there were reports of a wedding cake being driven down all the way from Virginia! The evening wedding reportedly took place on the grounds of Mt. Pleasant’s Boone Hall Plantation, just outside Charleston.

People’s sources said that after the ceremony none other than Florence and the Machine frontwoman Florence Welch serenaded the couple. Blake and Ryan met on the set of The Green Lantern and have been quietly dating for over a year. This is Blake’s first marriage and Ryan’s second; he was married to Scarlett Johansson for two years before splitting in 2010.
