Gossip Girl star Blake Lively knows how to keep a secret when it comes to her wedding!
Lively, 25, and Ryan Reynolds, 36, tied the knot in ultra-private, surprise ceremony with only 35 guests at Boone Hill Plantation in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina on Sept. 9. Now, they’re ready to share some photos from the special day now — but none with their faces.
“While they remain protective of images of them on their most heartfelt occasion, they graciously let us share pictures of the elements we created together,” Martha Stewart Weddings, who helped create their special day, explains in their new issue.
In one photo, the bride and groom offer a glimpse at their wardrobe while holding hands and showing off Reynold’s wedding band by Jeweler Lorraine Schwartz.
Lively wore a Marchesa gown adorned with crystal and rose gold embroidery. To compliment the look, Weddings’ style director Kate Berry made her bouquet of “pink jasmine, andromeda, dusty miller, and blushing bride hydrangea . . . [and] dipped select petals in subtle rose-gold glitter.
And the magazine made sure to help satisfy the bride’s sweet tooth.
“An avid cook, crafter, and baker, Blake envisioned an abundant dessert table overflowing with their favorite treats,” the magazine writes. In addition to their vanilla-and-sour-cream wedding cake with peach-apricot preserves, the table was filled with s’mores bars, espresso beans, blueberry cheesecake tarts, lemon tarts, fruit jellies and mini strawberry shortcakes.
