Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton Reveal First Photos of their Wedding Ceremony
Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton did more than watch fireworks over the Fourth of July holiday. The pair married on Saturday at Shelton’s Oklahoma ranch, where they have spent most of the coronavirus outbreak. Stefani verified the joyful news by uploading photographs on Instagram Monday night after overhead photos of the wedding appeared late Sunday night.
The former No Doubt singer first uploaded a video of herself putting on her veil on the wedding morning. She then uploaded stunning images from the wedding and reception, showcasing her elaborate wedding gown. She wrote, “Dreams do come true!” and added, “I love you,” to Shelton. On his own Instagram page, the “Minimum Wage” singer shared Shelton’s post.
Stefani, 51, named practically everyone involved in the wedding, including The Voice host Carson Daly, who conducted the ceremony, in her caption. Only close friends and relatives appeared at the wedding, which drew roughly 40 people. Daly meets both of those requirements, as the two had been friends since they first appeared on The Voice in 2011.
On the Today Show recently, Daly remarked of Shelton, “He’s become one of the closest people in my life, to be honest with you.” Daly has become the closest to Shelton on The Voice, and their families have even vacationed together. He added, “Aside from what the show, from an employment standpoint, has done for me and my family, you know, my friendship with Blake is probably the next best thing I’ve yielded by being on the show,.”
According to PEOPLE, Stefani wore a Vera Wang ensemble. Stefani’s initial post shows a veil that was worn during the reception rather than the ceremony. Stefani changed into a new outfit before the reception, which she described as a “custom lily-white Italian silk crepe and hand tumbled tulle strapless tiny dress.”
According to Wang, the gown had “hand stitched silk, crystal, and sequin embroidered greenery softly cascading from the waist down the skirt.” Stefani’s children were represented by three baby love birds stitched onto the garment.
Stefani is married for the second time in her life. From 2002 to 2015, she was married to musician Gavin Rossdale. Kingston, 15, Zuma, 12, and Apollo, 7, are Rossdale and Stefani’s, boys. From 2003 to 2006, Shelton was married to Kaynette Gern, and from 2011 to 2015, he was married to Miranda Lambert. Stefani and Shelton started dating after meeting on The Voice in 2015. In October 2020, they got engaged.
Stefani, who has dueted with Shelton on the singles “Nobody But You” and “Happy Anywhere,” has spent most of the past year in Oklahoma with her three sons. To stay safe during the epidemic, the couple intended to make their wedding small. She said, “It’s gonna be like, my mom and my dad and just literally gonna be just family,” Stefani told Seth Meyers in April. “We are looking forward to that though. It’s gonna be fun. We’re gonna make it really fun.”
