The private couple dated for a year before getting hitched in front of just 35 guests. And news of the wedding came as a surprise, as they hadn't even confirmed an engagement!

As their second wedding anniversary approaches, Blake explains in a new interview that she and Ryan don't buy each other gifts, but make something special instead.

"Normally, we make something for each other," Blake told E! News. "Because that's something that lasts and isn't something you just found and bought in a store."

Blake and Ryan posed up a storm at the Cannes Film Festival in May, looking every inch the picture perfect Hollywood couple. And it seems The Proposal star Ryan has influenced Blake's tastes too.

Blake has recently started up a new lifestyle website called Preserve, and Ryan has been involved every step of the way.

"We're involved in everything that the other does," Blake continued. "But he's influenced my taste so much on things like home design, things that I never loved before I now love because of him.

"That's nice," she added. "It's nice to have a partner in everything."
