Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds' Wedding Details
From what we know so far, Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds' South Carolina country wedding was a romantic (and yes, very private!) affair. Love that southern-chic vibe? Steal a few of these ideas for your day!
Find a Venue With a Romantic Story
Blake and Ryan married at Boone Hall Plantation, the same place the movie The Notebook was filmed. Mansions, estates and historic hotels all have history (read: a romantic past).

OK, we actually don't have any idea what color palette Blake and Ryan used, but we're willing to bet they complemented their southern venue with enchanting décor like this. Get that ultra-elegant style using a soft color palette of blush, lavender or simple whites and ivory.

Opt for an Airy Wedding Dress
Blake wore a custom-made Marchesa dress — and we think this particular design from Marchesa's latest line would have looked stunning on her. Look for wedding dresses with soft silks, delicate lace and elegant beading to fit that romantic country wedding style.

Order a Simple, Ruffled Wedding Cake
We are 95 percent sure that Maggie Austin (of Maggie Austin Cakes) was the designer behind Blake and Ryan's wedding cake. Her designs are elegant and light. Have your baker create a cake like this one with slight ruffles.

Theme Your Cocktail Hour
Rumor is that Blake and Ryan had a carnival-themed cocktail hour. Surprise your guests with a themed event before your sit-down dinner. Maybe it's drinks from your favorite movie or beach-chic cocktails as a nod to your honeymoon.
