It's been nearly a year since they were first publicly linked – and now Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds are husband and wife.

A source confirms to PEOPLE that the couple tied the knot Sunday night at Boone Hall Plantation in Mt. Pleasant, S.C., just outside of Charleston.

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, and there was also a deejay who spun tunes. PEOPLE also confirmed that a cake was being driven down from Virginia for the event.

Lively's mother and sister were also spotted in town, and a source told PEOPLE that the two had dinner in Charleston with Bette Midler earlier in the weekend.

Reps for the two actors had no comment.

Blake Lively managed to fly under the radar – not even getting photographed – during a private, four-song concert by pal Florence Welch and her band, Florence + the Machine. Lively and the musician were attached at the hip after the Belvedere-sponsored performance at the Boom Boom Room atop New York's Standard Hotel, sharing drinks (think: martinis!) and lots of laughter. Also at the bash: Kanye West and Emma Roberts, who was surrounded by girlfriends. – Jessica Wedemeyer

Christina Aguilera Kicks Off Grammys on a High Note

Christina Aguilera showed some respect for Aretha Franklin at Sunday's Grammy Awards.

One week after the pop star's big Super Bowl fumble – she flubbed the words during her National Anthem performance – Aguilera opened an all-female tribute to the Queen of Soul at L.A.'s Staples Center alongside Jennifer Hudson, Florence Welch (of Florence + the Machine), Yolanda Adams and Martina McBride.

Standing in a row, the ladies swapped harmonies, alternating lead vocals during the 10-minute run-through of many of Franklin's hits.

After leading off with "You Make Me Feel (Like a Natural Woman)" as a collective, Aguilera belted out "Ain't No Way," accenting the tune with plenty of melisma and her trademark vocal trilling. She stood confidently as she sang and ended the performance on a (sustained) high note – literally.
