After she tied the knot with the 37-year-old Turbo star in 2012, Blake's wedding dress got tarnished by a big burn mark at the reception. The former Gossip Girl star told Vogue Florence Welch sang at their reception and sparklers were brought out during the performance. As she watched her sing, "I look down and my wedding dress has a big burn mark from one of the sparklers. Right on the front! And it was just so heartbreaking to me," she said.
Her hubby, whom she said changed the way she thinks about things, helped calm her down about it. "Later, my dress was hanging up and Ryan said, 'Isn't that beautiful?' I said, 'What?' And he pointed to the burn. My heart just stopped, because it was such a sensitive little subject. And he said, 'You'll always remember that moment with Florence singing and the sparklers. You have that forever, right there, preserved.' Now that's my favorite part of the dress." What a sweetheart.
Ryan's attitude towards life is just one of the reasons why the couple works so well together. The 26-year-old actress said Ryan isn't officially a part of her new Preserve website's team, but he will be helping. "He's a part of it because everything we do in life we do together," says Lively. "If I'm working on a movie, he helps me with my character; I do the same with him. Picking out a coffee table. What we're going to eat. He's a beautiful writer-he's written a lot of stuff for us. And he's got a great barometer and he knows me, so he will tell me if it's not as good as it can be."
She also gushed over how her husband will be when they have children, saying, "He's going to be a great father and leader and patriarch - he's so meant to be all of those things. The fact that he lived so much before we got together, he's the exact realized person that he should be. And so I get to share my life with the person he's become, and we get to grow from there."
The couple celebrated their first anniversary in September 2013 with a weekend in the south, wining and dining in Charleston, S.C. and Savannah Ga. Blake and Ryan married in a top secret ceremony at Boone Hall Planation right outside of Charleston, S.C. in Mt. Pleasant.
We wonder what they have in store this year!
