Fact: : No one dislikes weddings, surprises, or leggy blonde actresses.

That’s why Blake Lively’s secret nuptials over the weekend to People’s Sexiest Man Alive 2010 (that’s Ryan Reynolds of course) was the trifecta of awesomeness. I laud the genetic overachievers for pulling of such a stealth ceremony, but to deprive the prying public of pictures is harsh.

Blake Lively is my absolute favorite modern fashion icon. The woman can literally do no wrong. She rocks everything she dons from slinky red carpet gowns to skinny jeans and t-shirts. Of course she’s most notorious for showing off her gams in flirty frocks and menswear inspired short-short ensembles. The coolest part about her, and I’m gushing like a middle-school girl, is that she doesn’t have a stylist. She picks out her own stuff. Like a normal person!

Word is, she walked down the aisle in Marchesa, which couldn’t be more fitting because some of my favorite Blake moments ever were Marchesa moments. Nobody could have been better suited to dress Blake on her wedding day than Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig, the mastermind designers behind one of my all time favorite couture lines.

To celebrate the bombshell bride, and because it never hurts to feast your eyes on fine fashion, I’d now like rehash some of her greatest Marchesa looks.

Cue the somber song that plays during the “In Memory” slideshow at the Academy Awards.

Here’s hoping Blake and Ryan enjoy years of happiness and that Carl Lagerfeld starts making children’s clothing. Naturally, only Chanel will do for the offspring of these two.

P.S. – Time had fun speculating what her dress may have looked like. Check it out, there are lots more pretty dresses!
