Plantation Where Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively Got Married Responds With Statement: “We Will Always Work To Be A Part Of The Solution For Our Couples”

The plantation where Ryan Reynold’s and Blake Lively got married has responded to the actors’ regrets about getting married there.

Reynolds and Lively got married at the more than 330-year-old Boone Hall Plantation & Gardens in Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina, back in 2012. But the couple apologized for their decision after the “Deadpool” star was called hypocritical in 2018 after saying he supported the record-breaking film “Black Panther.”

Reynolds said their choice to have their wedding at the former plantation is something” we’ll always be deeply and unreservedly sorry for.” “It’s impossible to reconcile,” he said. “What we saw at the time was a wedding venue on Pinterest. What we saw after was a place built upon devastating tragedy.” Reynolds said the poor choice was so massive that it caused him to “re-frame things and move into action.” In June, the couple donated $200,000 to the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund (LDF). He said he tries to stay away from discussing his support for social justice efforts “in part because he worries that white celebrities too often drown out non-white voices, even if that’s not their intention.”

“Representation and diversity need to be completely immersive,” Reynolds said while discussing how his marketing agency, Maximum Effort plans to support diversity. “Like, it needs to be embedded at the root of storytelling, and that’s in both marketing and Hollywood. When you add perspective and insight that isn’t your own, you grow. And you grow your company, too.”

In response to the couple’s condemnation of their past decision, the plantation said in a statement that it supports its couples. “We treasure all our relationships with couples that have chosen to get married at Boone Hall, and, when needed, respond to them in private, honest, and personal discussions to address any concerns they may have. The discussions are heartfelt as we want to listen and put love and respect at the center of any issues that arise. We will always work to be a part of the solution for our couples, not a part of the problem.”
