For a wedding more secretive than Area 51, details are everything. That's why Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds chose to hold off filing for their marriage license until after the wedding ceremony.

Documents show that on September 13th, the famous couple filed at the marriage license division at probate court in Charleston, South Carolina. They legally wed the following day.

For the top secret ceremony, even the wedding cake baker was kept in the dark about the identity of the client. A rep for cake decorator Maggie Austin Cake told PEOPLE, "For us, we were simply working for a client like we always do. We are surprised and delighted that we were able to work with them." Non-disclosure agreements were signed by attendees, including the parents of the children's choir from the local First Baptist Church who performed at the ceremony. Cell phones were even confiscated from guests to avoid unauthorized photos.

Though the ceremony details may be under lock and key, witnesses have spotted the "Green Lantern" actors enjoying their honeymoon around the east coast.

The first weekend after the event was held at the Inn at Little Washington in Rappahannock County, Virginia. An eyewitness saw them visiting the Stonyman Gourmet Farmer on Saturday, September 15th. According to the witness, "They were taking some food to go. They took little foods, fresh goods and local cheeses. They said they were going to take a walk together and simply looked like relaxed, real people.”
