When Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively said “I do” over the weekend, they selected a venue thousands of miles away from the hubbub of Hollywood, but Boone Hall Plantation & Gardens in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, does have ties to Tinseltown.
The place where Reynolds, 35, and Lively, 25, exchanged vows in front of 6o family members and friends on Sunday night has been the backdrop of several movie and TV productions. Most notably, scenes from 2004’s “The Notebook” were filmed there. You may remember that in the movie a young Allie (Rachel McAdams) and Noah (Ryan Gosling) visited her family’s summer home. Well, Boone Hall Plantation served as the family’s lavish estate. It was outside the historic home that they had lunch – and the well-to-do Hamiltons were horrified to learn that Noah, who worked at a local mill, earned a very small salary. Later, Allie and Noah went for a boat ride during which Noah stripped and jumped into the water. Her family looked on displeased as Allie followed suit.
In a funny twist, Lively actually dated Gosling in late 2010. Their brief time together, during which they enjoyed an ice cream date at Disneyland, took place after she split with her “Gossip Girl” co-star Penn Badgley and before she started seeing Leonardo DiCaprio in May 2011. Lively and Reynolds, who met on the set of 2011’s “Green Lantern,” started dating in October 2011 — less than a year ago.
