The 26-year-old former Gossip Girl actress, who can be seen next year in the film The Age of Adaline, made her comments to Vogue magazine in an August 2014 cover story posted online this week. The outlet also features Lively in a American frontier-inspired gorgeous photo spread, shot in Wyoming (see photos, below).
She said that while she watched Florence Welch singing at her wedding reception, sparklers were brought out. One of them burned the front of her custom-made Marchesa gown. It was her husband who first noticed that the dress was ruined.
"And later, my dress was hanging up and Ryan said, ‘Isn't that beautiful?' I said, ‘What?' And he pointed to the burn," she told Vogue. "My heart just stopped, because it was such a sensitive little subject. And he said, ‘You'll always remember that moment with Florence singing and the sparklers. You have that forever, right there, preserved.' Now that's my favorite part of the dress."
Lively also the magazine that she thinks 37-year-old Reynolds is "going to be a great father and leader and patriarch." She has joked before that she wants 30 kids.
Lively made headlines recently over her plans to launch her own lifestyle website, Preserve, which aims to "celebrate American craftsmanship," according to Vogue. The blonde beauty told Vogue that Reynolds has contributed material for Preserve, adding that he is "a beautiful writer."
While Reynolds is not seen in the photo spread, the two have often attended celebrity events together. But Lively and the actor, who starred with her in the 2011 movie Green Lantern, are known for keeping their love life private. The two wed on Sept. 9, 2012, without announcing their wedding to the press.
