Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively — who met making the 2011 movie "Green Lantern" — tried to keep their romance under wraps after they started dating later that year following Ryan's divorce from Scarlett Johansson and Blake's split from boyfriend Leonardo DiCaprio, so it wasn't a surprise that they tried to keep their wedding ceremony top secret too. The couple exchanged vows at Boone Hall Plantation — where one of the most epic romance movies of all time, "The Notebook," was filmed — in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, on Sept. 9, 2012. Blake dazzled in a custom silk tulle Marchesa gown adorned with crystal beading and rose gold embroidery. For their rustic reception, the newlyweds treated their 60 or so guests to a luxe dessert bar featuring everything from blueberry cheesecake tartlets to s'mores bars to coffee-and-cream espresso beans, but the pièce de résistance was the vanilla and sour cream wedding cake with peach-apricot preserves and Earl Grey milk chocolate buttercream.

But the real showstopper of the night was Miranda's custom Dior haute couture gown inspired by iconic Old Hollywood star Grace Kelly.
