After almost a year together, the couple tied the knot at Boone Hall Plantation in Mt. Pleasant, S.C., on Sunday night.
Though their reps have yet to confirm the marriage, both People and E! News confirm the pair said “I do” in an intimate under-the-stars ceremony at the sprawling antebellum plantation just outside of Charleston — where, coincidentally, beloved love-story flick The Notebook was filmed.
So why did the New York residents take their wedding celebrations to the South?
“Ryan has always loved it here,” Kelly Gukanovich of Charleston radio station 95.1 FM told E!. “When he got together with Blake, he started to bring her here, too. [And] a few days ago, I heard Ryan was back in town.”
And it’s no surprise Reynolds has a soft spot for the town’s Boone Hall Plantation, a gorgeous local attraction. Open to the public since 1956, the sprawling property boasts picture-perfect Colonial Revival buildings, beautiful flower gardens, and a mile-long drive adorned with blooming oak.
With 320 years of farming history, Boone Hall is one of America’s oldest working, living plantations. Along with private parties and weddings, the venue hosts many events year round, such as the Boone Hall Pumpkin Patch, Lowcountry Strawberry Festival and the Southern Living Taste of Charleston.
Lively and Reynolds reportedly held their ceremony at the plantation’s Cotton Dock House in front of 70 family members and friends.
