We now have the photo evidence to back up what we already knew: Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds' September wedding was absolutely beautiful.
Martha Stewart Weddings covered—and helped create—the Gossip Girl star's sweet, Southern nuptials in Mount Pleasant, S.C. On Thursday, MSW gave bridal enthusiasts everywhere a glimpse at the Green Lantern costars' classy I-dos.
Blake's bouquet was personally designed by Weddings' style director, Kate Berry. Select petals from the "lush bouquet of pink jasmine, Andromeda, dusty miller and blushing bride hydrangea" were dipped in gold glitter to "play up the embroidery of the same color on the bride's couture ball gown by Marchesa."
The dessert table was also elaborate and well-executed. Because Blake is "an avid cook, crafter and baker," she wanted "an abundant dessert table overflowing with [her and Ryan's] favorite treats."
The focal point of the whimsical sweets display was the couple's "vanilla–and-sour-cream wedding cake with peach-apricot preserves and Earl Grey–milk-chocolate buttercream made by Maggie Austin Cake" in Virginia.
The couple's guests also enjoyed s'mores bars, coffee-and-cream espresso beans, blueberry cheesecake tartlets, lemon tarts, fruit jellies and mini strawberry shortcakes.
Although the couple celebrated privately and "[remained] protective of images of them on their most heartfelt occasion," they did share a sweet photo showing off Blake's gown and the hand-holding newlyweds' wedding rings.
More details on Blake and Ryan's wedding are in the new issue of Martha Stewart Weddings, on sale Monday.
