Blake and Ryan get married (and she doesn’t tip off the paparazzi!)
I’m heading to Charleston, South Carolina, for a wedding next year, so I’m feeling a little proprietorial about the news that Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds got married on Sunday night at Boone Hall Plantation. just outside of Charleston.
The mansion was the setting for the 2004 romantic tearjerker, The Notebook.
Blake hinted Ryan was The One last month, tweeting: “Nothing would ever compare to that single moment when I first kissed the guy of my dreams and knew that my love would last forever.”
She’s also been suggesting babies might be on the way, tweeting: “Maybe there is a bun in the oven, maybe there’s not…..”
The couple initially met while filming The Green Lantern in 2010. They started dating a year ago.
People magazine reports that the reception took place in a white tent at the plantation on Sunday evening. “Florence Welch (of Florence and the Machine), a good friend of the Gossip Girl star, performed three songs live, and there was also a deejay who spun tunes. PEOPLE also confirmed that a cake was being driven down from Virginia for the event. Lively’s mother and sister were also spotted in town, and a source told PEOPLE that the two had dinner in Charleston with Bette Midler earlier in the weekend.”
Of course, it’s not like Blake could let the occasion go by without some spotlight time (it’s generally acknowledged among gossip columnists that she tips off the paparazzi to her whereabouts) Martha Stewart Weddings will be running the official photos of the event.
Martha Stewart Weddings reports: “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 Marchesagowns designed by Blake’s friends, Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig, with shoes created for the celebration byChristian 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!”
Rihanna’s shock tattoo
Rihanna has revealed a huge new tattoo on Twitter. And it’s a tribute to her grandmother, Clara “Dolly” Braithwaite, who passed away on July 1.
She tweeted on Sunday night: “Goddess Isis- Complete Woman – Model for future generations-
#GRANGRANDOLLY – always in and on my heart”
Wow, that’s EXACTLY what my grandmother would have wanted me to do in her memory. Natch!
PS Dlisted says: Because nothing says “I love you forever” like an under titty tattoo that in 50 years will look like a mangy, tattered pigeon that was shot down by a pellet gun.
Bynes pulled over by the cops!
Yep, this so isn’t going to end well. Actress Amanda Bynes, already busted over two hit-and-run incidents, has been pulled over by police in Los Angeles. And there’s video footage to prove it.
Reports TMZ: “Amanda Bynes was pulled over in L.A. last night after her driver’s license was suspended — but somehow, she didn’t end up in jail. Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, Bynes was pulled over for driving without her headlights on. We’re told she was given a verbal warning and sent on her way. It’s unclear if officers ran the actress’ license — because if they did, they might have noticed it was reportedly SUSPENDED last week after the actress was slapped with two misdemeanor hit-and-run charges. She also refused to take a breathalyzer after being busted for DUI, and that triggers an automatic 1-year license suspension. It’s unclear if the license has since been reinstated — but with such a short time frame, it’s VERY unlikely. Calls to Bynes’ camp were not returned.”
Talk about not learning your lesson.
Peaches’ baby takes a tumble
Peaches Geldof is copping flack for not ending a mobile phone conversation when her baby took a tumble out of his pram.
Reports TMZ: “Someone get Peaches Geldof‘s baby a helmet … because his 23-year-old mom just dumped his ass out of his stroller while blabbing on her cell phone in London … and she didn’t even hang up. Peaches seemed to have the whole stroller-pushing thing down pat — until she hit a pothole, and the stroller flipped upside down … with her 5-month-old baby still inside. The kid tumbled out onto the sidewalk and Peaches jumped into action — all without hanging up her phone. As far as we know the baby’s fine … for now.”
See the pics here.
This is Peaches’ response on Twitter: “Im not going to let bitter tabloid scum marr the memories of it [my wedding day] by trying to ruin the days after it with rude stories about my mothering ability because London’s roads are so crappy and dangerous. My babywas and is fine, but I guess because I seem to be one of the only ‘celebrities’ who actually pushes their own baby in his pram instead of a nanny or assistant (I have neither) doing so, I deserve scorn if the pra, tumbles over a massive hole in the pavement. Yawn. Grow up.”
