The two have been dating for a year after meeting while filming 2011's "The Green Lantern."

People magazine reports that 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, as did singer Bette Midler.

E! News says that news of the wedding was first tipped by local radio station 95.1 FM, which tweeted, "Hold up, there's another story that it's Ryan Reynolds and he married Blake Lively at the Cotton Docks today!"

The station's Kelly Gukanovich told E! News, "A few days ago, I heard Ryan was back in town. Then today, lots of signs went up at Boone Hall Plantation stating that it was holding a private event, so no one could get into the area. I also started hearing rumors that a celebrity wedding was taking place.

"I am being told there were around 60 people at the event and that a local restaurant may have catered it. Ryan has always loved it here and when he got together with Blake, he started to bring her here, too."

Us Weekly reports this would be the first marriage for Lively, 25, who previously dated "Gossip Girl" costar Penn Badgley and Leonardo DiCaprio, and the second for Reynolds, 35, who was engaged to Alanis Morissette from 2004-2007 (they never made it down the aisle) and whose divorce from Scarlett Johansson was finalized in July 2011.
