Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds tied the knot over three months ago, but images from the wedding have finally been revealed on Thursday.
The September nuptials were kept top-secret, and Martha Stewart Weddings (MSW) finally revealed the first glimpses of the special event.
Firstly, MSW offered a picture of the bride's bouquet, personally designed by the magazine's style director, Kate Berry.
The flower arrangement included a "lush bouquet of pink jasmine, Andromeda, dusty miller and blushing bride hydrangea" which were dipped in gold in order to "play up the embroidery of the same color on the bride's couture gown," according to MSW.
Next, an impressive dessert table was revealed and said to have been enjoyed by the couple's mere 35 guests.
The spread included "an abundant dessert table overflowing with [Lively and Ryan's] favorite treats" such as s'mores bars, coffee-and-cream espresso beans, blueberry cheesecake tartlets, and mini strawberry shortcakes, among others.
Among the sweets was the couple's cake, a "vanilla-and-sour-cream wedding cake with peach-apricot preserves and Earl Grey-milk-chocolate buttercream made by Maggie Austin Cake" in Virginia, according to MSW.
Also featured in the magazine spread was a shot of Blake, 25, and her groom, 36, holding hands. Although it is not a full picture of the couple, an idea of Lively's gown is offered.
The magazine explained the newlyweds' "sole wish to have an intimate affair" prevented other photos from being released.
"They wanted to celebrate in privacy, and in style," MSW noted.
Some of the few details about the wedding that have already been revealed include location. The couple said "I do" in Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina, just outside of Charleston, according to E! News.
The venue for the ceremony was the historic Boone Hall Plantation, the very home featured in the romantic favorite film "The Notebook."
An insider offered that the bride "looked very natural" on the big day, according to People magazine.
"Her hair was mostly down, but some of it was swept up," said an onlooker speaking to the magazine. "She didn't wear a veil. She wore natural make up; her skin was flawless. It was a clean look, very fresh."
Furthermore, Lively selected a custom Marchesa ball gown for her nuptials that featured embroidered silk tulle.
"Her dress was simple yet beautiful, slightly off-white, no big bows, no train," the insider added.
Continuing her "natural" bridal look, the "Gossip Girl" actress opted for little jewelry.
"She didn't wear anything gaudy, no big jewelry," People reported. "She had small earrings, and I believe a very delicate necklace, but nothing really prominent."
