Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively's secret wedding September 9 wasn't actually official. The pair tied the knot, legally, five days later in Charleston, S.C.

Say what now?

Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds married in an intimate ceremony a week ago Sunday, but legally, the happy couple wasn't hitched until September 14.

Lively and Reynolds

Documents show Reynolds, 35, and Lively, 25, applied for a marriage license on Thursday, September 13, and actually got married the following day.

The law mandates that there be a 24-hour waiting period between filing an application for a marriage license and the time the license can be issued.

A couple is also required to apply for the license in person. The cost of a marriage license: $70. This certainly helps explain how they kept it secret.

Everyone involved was asked to sign non-disclosure agreements, from the children's choir to the cake makers, and phones were confiscated at the door.

Congratulations again to the newlyweds! And well played!

In the week since Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds exchanged vows, their fans have seen next to nothing of the gorgeous, super-private newlyweds ... until now!

Check out this photo that surfaced of the two of them kissing the day after they got married in South Carolina. They look very much happy and in love.

Also, it looks like Blake's wedding ring is not small ...

The ring, which was designed by jeweler Lorraine Schwartz, has not been present in any photos from the set of Gossip Girl, which Blake films in New York.

Then again, Serena's not married ... at least not at the moment.

Coincidentally, a secret wedding involving Blake's character is the rumored plot of the Oct. 8 premiere! Art imitating life? Not really, but fun. Congrats again!

Gossip Girl star Blake Lively covers the new issue of Allure. In the mag, she discusses how happy she is, and how she'd like nothing more than to have 30 kids.

She also shows off her amazing legs in some insanely short shorts.

Before Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds married in a top secret wedding in South Carolina over the weekend, she was already overcome by pre-marital bliss.

"Right now, I'm so peaceful," says the Gossip Girl star, 25, whose romance with Reynolds, 35, went public last October. "I've never been happier in my life."

After seeing these photos, Ryan is probably thinking the same:

  • Blake Lively Legs
  • Blake Lively Allure

The down-to-earth Lively says she'd rather be happy than flawless any day:

"I obviously have plenty of imperfections on my body, but I'd rather have a bit of cellulite and go do a food trip and try every ice cream place in the South."

Happiness, Lively says, is a conscious thing: "It's the choice you have to wake up every day and say, 'There's no reason today can't be the best day of my life.'"

Profound. While she didn't mention Ryan by name or divulge any wedding plans (clearly), she was clearly in a family state of mind. The girl wants kids.

"I've always wanted a big family," says the actress, who is the youngest of five children herself. "Oh, I'd love 30 [children] if I could."

They'd probably be the hottest kids ever.

How did a couple of huge celebrities - possibly even the hottest couple ever - like Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively possibly get married in secret?

The answer to that question is several-fold:

  • Lovely Blake Lively
  • Ry-Ry

1. Location, location, location. Charleston, S.C., where Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds married Sunday night, is about as far from L.A. as you can get.

2. Local vendors. An E! source says in recent few months, "celebrities have been deliberately going with non-Hollywood planners, caterers and locations."

Moreover, "In the South, wedding planners are used to being hush-hush and low-key about events no matter what. It's just how they do things."

3. NDAs. This is just speculation, but stars often have any staff sign very strict non-disclosure agreements, punishable by seven-figure fines.

4. Marriage license maneuvering. An employee working at Charleston County clerk's office said straight up that, "We didn't do Blake Lively."

Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds secretly got married at Boone Hall Plantation in Mt. Pleasant, S.C., just outside of Charleston, on Sunday evening.

We know, right. Whoa!

Lively and Reynolds have been together for about a year, and recently purchased a home together in Bedford, N.Y.. Still, who saw this one coming?

Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds

The couple, who co-starred in 2011's Green Lantern, have stayed mum about their relationship; there was no engagement announcement of any kind.

The wedding, while secret, did feature some star power.

Florence Welch (of Florence and the Machine), a good friend of Lively, performed three songs live, and there was also a DJ spinning tunes.

Ryan, 35, was married to Scarlett Johansson from 2008-2010.

It's the first marriage for Blake, 25, who previously dated her TV co-star Penn Badgley and Leonardo DiCaprio. Gossip Girl Season 6 kicks off October 8.

Congratulations to the newlyweds!

Apparently Gossip Girl star Blake Lively smells as good as she looks. Or close.

Soon, we'll know for sure: She's the face of Gucci's fragrance Gucci Premiere!

"I admire the qualities of the Gucci Première woman and feel honored to represent the fragrance," the 24-year-old actress said in a statement Tuesday.

Lovely Blake Lively

"It is a pleasure to collaborate with [Gucci's creative director] Frida Giannini."

Giannini said: "In conceiving this fragrance I was inspired by timeless Hollywood glamour and the iconic leading ladies of Hollywood's golden era. Blake Lively's unique style and charisma brings that allure to life in a very contemporary way."

Gucci Premiere hits stores in the U.K. in July and worldwide in September.

Lively hits the big screen this summer in Oliver Stone's film Savages and the small screen this fall in Gossip Girl Season 6, the CW series' swan song.

Stop us if you've heard this one before, but gorgeous Gossip Girl cast member Blake Lively is apparently nothing like her character on Gossip Girl! Crazy!

Primary case in point: Blake does not party or get around.

The 24-year-old actress tells Marie Claire that “People like to draw parallels between my life and the scandalous stories on Gossip Girl."

"I do dress similarly to my character, so they think, She lives this life on and off set ... I recently shared how many boyfriends I’ve had [four], and people were like, ‘That’s impossible!’ But it’s true."

"I’ve been with very few people. If I’m not with somebody who really excites or inspires me, then I’d rather be by myself.”

Those four guys would be Ryan Reynolds, Leonardo DiCaprio, Penn Badgley and ... the guy before Penn Badgley. Lucky fellas!

On preparing for her Savages role, Blake told the magazine, “I went to the gun range and learned how to shoot a gun for the first time."

It looks as thought Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds are totally nesting.

Just a few days after reports surfaced that they were house hunting in Connecticut, the Gossip Girl star and her beau reportedly did buy their own place.

The couple, who were first linked late last year, "bought a beautiful country home" in Bedford, N.Y., a source tells PEOPLE. Spoiler alert: It's not cheap.

"The house cost more than $2 million," a source said of the property.

Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds

The two actors, who starred together in the super-hero film The Green Lantern, have been seen in Boston, New York City and New Orleans in recent months.

It looks like Bedford, N.Y., is their new spot of choice, however.

Just 45 minutes outside New York City, but offering privacy in a country setting, it will serve as the perfect respite for the couple of ... several months.

They have been spotted around town doing everything from horseback riding, to buying chocolate milk and dining at the Bedford Post Inn. Quite cute really.

Blake Lively Quotes

I once heard someone say that I'm similar to Paris Hilton, since I have a dog and blonde hair, that must mean we're alike.... I don't go to clubs, I don't party, I don't dance on tables, and I don't like sex tapes.

Blake Lively

At the end of the day, I want to go to dinner and watch a movie. I don't want to go to a club and not wear panties.
