Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively are the latest celebrities to pull off a secret estate wedding! On Saturday, September 8, 2012, the couple married at the Boone Hall Plantation in Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina.
Sources from People Magazine state that 60 guests were in attendance, with performances from Bette Midler, as well as Florence and the Machine lead singer, Florence Welch.
According to the Martha Stewart Weddings, Blake wore a Marchesa Gown while Ryan wore a Burberry tuxedo.
In her June 2012 interview with Marie Claire magazine, Blake spoke about her future wedding:
“What I planned before I got into the business has changed,” she says. “Now I’m like, ‘Hmm, I wonder what shoes Christian [Louboutin] is going to make me. And which couture house should I go to?”
It can only be assumed that she donned custom Louboutin shoes as she walked down the aisle, but she certainly chose a couture estate for her wedding location!
