A source confirms to PEOPLE that the couple tied the knot Sunday night at Boone Hall Plantation in Mt. Pleasant, S.C., just outside of Charleston.
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.
What makes their marriage even more romantic is that before they got together, Blake spent an entire summer banging Leonardo DiCaprio in Italy until he dumped her so he could go back to plowing his way through the entire Victoria’s Secret catalog. So really, Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively are each others second choices, and that’s what marriage has been about since the dawn of time. Finding another broken, rejected soul to settle with out of fear of dying alone which is why we have to protect it from the gays. This is just for us, you queers, now scoot, skedaddle. Before you make it all fun and not depressing.
