Blake Lively is a woman who knows what she wants, and isn't afraid to ask for it.
According to Tara Guérard, the wedding planner who organized Blake Lively and Ryan Reynold's secret September wedding, the bride knew exactly what she wanted for the ceremony -- and was determined to get it! Guérard told People on Monday: "She had 250 photos, and she wanted all those elements in her wedding."
The bride was also involved in the creation of her wedding dress, which she helped design along with Marchesa co-founders Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig. The duo told People that working with Lively was a great experience:
"Blake is incredibly stylish, and she really knew what she wanted. It was very much how we do a lot of brides. We started with a lot of sketches, and we sit down and talk through the sketches until we came to the final dress … She just wanted to be romantic and beautiful."
Martha Stewart Weddings will be featuring the celebration in their December issue.
