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.
More details about the wedding comes from FITS :
According to our sources, Reynolds and Lively were wed in an intimate ceremony at Boone Hall’s “Cotton Dock” – which was decked out Hamptons-style (complete with custom chaise lounges). The ceremony is said to have included a local children’s choir singing Franki Valli’s “Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You” as well as a solo from Bette Midler. Lively’s friend Florence Welch is also said to have performed.
The sit down dinner (for an estimated sixty guests) was reportedly catered by Mike Lata of FIG restaurant – an award winning dining establishment in downtown Charleston.
