Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds opted for an intimate, rustic wedding in Charleston last Sunday — and the bride’s look echoed that vibe.

“She looked very natural,” a source tells PEOPLE. “Her hair was mostly down, but some of it was swept up. She didn’t wear a veil. She wore natural makeup; her skin was flawless. It was a clean look, very fresh.”

Lively selected a custom Marchesa ball gown for her big day, pairing the embroidered silk tulle creation with Christian Louboutin shoes (the designer is a close friend of the actress). “Her dress was simple yet beautiful, slightly off-white, no big bows, no train,” the source adds.

Her jewels were equally understated. “She didn’t wear anything gaudy; no big jewelry,” the source continues. “She had small earrings, and I believe a very delicate necklace, but nothing really prominent.”

After saying their vows, with a promise to “support and love each other and to make each other laugh,” the couple exchanged rings by celebrity jeweler Lorraine Schwartz.

Greeting family and friends after the ceremony, held at the historic Boone Hall Plantation, the young bride truly did glow. According to the source, “She looked wonderful.” For more on Lively and Reynolds’s wedding, pick up the latest issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands now.

Miley’s hair flopped. She doesn’t have the face shape for it.

You know, it’s easy to be skeptical about this marriage, but I hope for the best for them. They seem like decent people and I hope their love is genuine and deep. I want them to make this work. Congrats!

This unnamed “source” has no idea what was going on. First and foremost, Blake was a disheveled mess during the ceremony. Her hair was very chaotic and she was continually shifting her weight from foot to foot. At times she also was observed nibbling on a fingernail.

After the ceremony, Blake gave a perfunctory nod to most of the guests with little if any eye contact.

I can’t wait to hear what color placemats and napkins were chosen. Hopefully in one of the stories People posts tomorrow! LOL. Come ON!?
