They got married on the weekend without ever really confirming they were engaged or showing the engagement ring from Reynolds. People.com was the first to report on the wedding; tentatively at first, with a question mark, then with source confirmation and sparse details of the day itself. Us Weekly Magazine was close behind. Today though, there’s information about the wedding, press releases from the designers (with whom the bride and groom are friends), and confirmation that the wedding exclusive has gone to Martha Stewart Weddings. Of course, a glossy magazine, not even a higher-tier supermarket weekly. Stewart’s brand fits with Lively’s revised interview shtick: “I love to bake, I cook for my man, I’m just like you.”
According to the tabloids, all of whom were overlooked in favour of a monthly magazine with a higher quality presentation, Lively wore a Marchesa wedding gown. The dress required a press release, describing the dress as “one-of-a-kind couture bridal gown with a hand-draped silk tulle bodice adorned with crystal and rose gold embroidery.” Women of the bridal party wore: “custom-made blush silk chiffon gowns with crystal embroidered detail,” also by Marchesa, according to the same release. The women all wore shoes from Christian Louboutin, of course. The groom and groomsmen wore “Burberry suits with custom leather suspenders” designed by Reynold’s friend Christopher Bailey, the head of Burberry. The wedding rings were by Lorraine Schwartz.
This past weekend, the Martha Stewart Weddings team was delighted and honored to be part of the wedding of Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively!
Together with the couple and Tara Guérard of Soiree in Charleston, we worked to bring their vision to life. Ryan and Blake opted for an intimate, personalized party, gathering their immediate and extended family at a rustic barn in South Carolina.
Ryan, who has been a long-time fan of Charleston, chose to mark this special occasion in one of his favorite towns.
The bride and her bridesmaids walked down the aisle in custom Marchesa gowns designed by Blake’s friends, Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig, with shoes created for the celebration by Christian Louboutin. The groom and groomsmen wore specially made Burberry suits with custom leather suspenders designed by the groom’s friend, Christopher Bailey. The couple exchanged unique wedding rings by Lorraine Schwartz.
From the heartfelt ceremony to the fun-filled carnival hour and elegant reception, it was a truly enchanting celebration.
We are thrilled to share the exclusive details of their nuptials in the winter issue of Martha Stewart Weddings (it comes out in December, but believe me, it’s worth the wait). And congratulations to the newlyweds; thank you for looking to us for help and inspiration, and for including us on your very special day! - via Martha Stewart Weddings.
