It’s been nearly a year since they were first publicly linked – but “People” has confirmed that Blake Lively, 25, and Ryan Reynolds, 35, were married tonight at Boone Hall Plantation in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina.
In addition, we have double confirmed the union, according to a Tweet by Charleston, S.C., radio station 95.1 FM, the pair, linked since October 2011, got married in town at “the Cotton Docks” just outside of downtown Charleston.
And a source told PEOPLE that the two, whom sources spotted in town having dinner with Bette Midler earlier in the weekend, were in South Carolina to get married.
On Sunday evening, a big event did indeed take place in a white tent at the plantation, and Florence Welch (of Florence and the Machine), a good friend of the Gossip Girl star, performed three songs live at a reception. PEOPLE also confirmed that a cake was being driven down from Virginia for the event.
Lively’s mother and sister were also spotted in town.
Reps for the two actors have yet to comment, though they did shoot down rumors earlier in the summer that the two had married.
Lively and Reynolds have been in nesting mode since buying a home in Bedford, N.Y., earlier this year. They have subsequently been seen working out together at a local gym, as well as spending quality time with their families in New York and Vancouver, where Reynolds, PEOPLE’s 2010 Sexiest Man Alive, was born.
The two, who costarred together in 2011’s Green Lantern, have stayed relatively mum about their relationship, though Lively, 25, did tell Marie Claire this summer, “It’s definitely attractive when a man can dress well.”
Reynolds, 35, was previously married to Scarlett Johansson. The couple divorced in 2010 after two years of marriage.
This would be the first marriage for Lively, who previously dated her Gossip Girl costar Penn Badgley.
