Hollywood stars Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds surprised the world when they announced news of their marriage back on September 9 of this year. The couple, who met while filming The Green Lantern in 2011, tied the knot at an intimate ceremony at Boone Hall Plantation in Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina.
Since the announcement, details about the ceremony have been scarce; the couple decided to work with friend Martha Stewart to release the photos exclusively in the Winter issue of Martha Stewart Weddings. With speculation about everything from Blake’s one-of-a-kind Marchesa dress to the involvement of the couples’ dogs, we’ve been dying to see the photos. Well, consider it an early Christmas present – here they are!
Click through our gallery for your first look at Blake’s cloudlike silk tulle gown with fitted bodice, illusion crystal beading on the shoulders, and rose-gold embroidery. We’ve also got a sneak peek at the couple’s Lorraine Schwartz wedding bands, Ryan’s Burberry suit, the bouquet and the cake. The Winter 2013 issue of Martha Stewart Weddings, with more photos and the full story, will be on newsstands by December 24th.
