By now, bros and babes everywhere have gone through significant mourning periods, with the news that leggy fox Blake Lively secretly married chiseled dude Ryan Reynolds over the weekend, despite knowing that he was in both Green Lantern and Blade: Trinity. But what a lot of sites failed to report as they came up with cute couple nicknames like BlakeNolds and RyLy was that the actual wedding ceremony took place at the very same place that The Notebook was filmed.
A source confirms to PEOPLE that the couple tied the knot Sunday night at Boone Hall Plantation in Mt. Pleasant, S.C., just outside of Charleston.
The reception took place in a white tent at the plantation on Sunday evening. Florence Welch (of Florence and the Machine), a good friend of the Gossip Girl star, performed three songs live, and there was also a deejay who spun tunes. PEOPLE also confirmed that a cake was being driven down from Virginia for the event.
Florence from Florence and the Machine? That’s baller, yo.
As soon as I read this, I went out on the street and interviewed 100 random girls. I asked whether or not they thought it was strange that Reynolds, an actor, married his actress girlfriend at the same location that was used in filming a romantic drama that isn’t even 10 years old. The majority of them responded, “HELP! POLICE!” because I wasn’t wearing pants, so this poll was actually of no use.
Maybe it’s just me, but I think there’s cheesy and then there’s marrying a girl at a mansion that was used in a film based on a Nicholas Sparks novel. Obviously I’m not much of an expert here, because I’m a dick and I laugh at the end of The Notebook, but this is like if Channing Tatum had married Jenna Dewan at Nakatomi Plaza because, “Yo Die Hardz wuz da mutha f*ckin’ bizznomb bomb, son, WHAT.”
