Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds managed to pull off a top secret wedding in South Carolina on Sunday night. We were all super-surprised at the nuptials, but was she trying to tell us about the wedding before it happened?
“I’ve always wanted a big family,” she tells Allure in the new issue. “Oh, I’d love 30 [children] if I could.”
Hope Reynolds is ready to be a dad! It seems like the Green Lantern actor has done wonders for her self confidence in the year since they’ve been dating.
“Right now, I’m so peaceful,” she adds. “I’ve never been happier in my life.”
It wasn’t always so easy: Lively says she had to make the conscious decision to be happy. “It’s the choice that you have to wake up every day and say, ‘There’s no reason today can’t be the best day of my life.'”
We’re pretty sure Sunday was the best day of her life: Lively walked down the aisle in a custom-made Marchesa dress and Christian Louboutin heels.
“Ryan and Blake wanted the event to look and feel like home,” wedding planner Tara Guerard told E! News. “With décor and live music, we all created the charm, elegance and magic of times past.”
The couple was able to keep it a secret, thanks to non-disclosure agreements signed by vendors, according to E!
“Over the past few months, celebrities have been deliberately going with vendors, planners and locations that are outside of the typical Hollywood wedding game, as a way to keep their weddings secret,” star wedding consultant Harmony Walton told the website. “Smaller vendors know that celebrity events can make or break them, so they’re much more likely to keep their mouths shut.”
Some people — like ex-boyfriend Penn Badgley — didn’t know because they simply weren’t invited.
“I actually didn’t know until last night, but I think it’s fantastic,” he told People on Monday. “I couldn’t be happier for her.”
Some girls have all the luck.
