Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively: Married Legally!

by at . Comments

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.

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!

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.
