Following the news concerning nuptials for Cobie Smulders and Taran Killam (coupled with one for “Big Brother” winner Rachel Reilly and Brendon Villegas), there are now swirling reports that “Gossip Girl” star Blake Lively and her movie-star boyfriend Ryan Reynolds have tied the knot. This story was first relayed via a tweet from a radio station in Charleston, South Carolina, but there does actually seem to be some validity to this story. Why? There is some mounting evidence that there was a hush-hush event happening in the area at the Cotton Docks of the Boone Hall Plantation.
1. A source tells People Magazine that the couple was in the city to be married, and there was a giant white tent set up at the plantation for a wedding ceremony this weekend. The two were also spotted in the area at some point eating with Bette Midler.
2. Florence Welch of Florence + the Machine performed three songs at the plantation event, and she is a good friend of Lively’s.
3. A number of Lively’s family members were also spotted in town. In other words, there is some pretty big evidence pointing in their direction. (Granted, it’s also possible that someone else in Lively’s family was getting married.)
These two actors (who previously worked together on “Green Lantern”) first started to date last year, and they have been spotted all around the country and the world ever since. However, they have been exceptionally private when it comes to talking about their relationship, and have barely even confirmed it to the press.
Stay tuned, as we will have more on this breaking story as it becomes available. If you want to check out the latest “Gossip Girl” promo, be sure to read the story here.
