Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton were married on July 3, 2021, at Blake Shelton's ranch in Tishomingo, Oklahoma. Gwen Stefani shared a series of beautiful photos of the pair standing on a cliff, driving in a golf cart, cutting a 5-tier cake, and having their first dance on Instagram, writing, "It is possible for dreams to come true. Blake Shelton is my hero."
Gwen Stefani donned a Vera Wang gown and a veil hand-embroidered with their names, as well as the names of Stefani's sons, Kingston James, 15, Zuma Nesta Rock, 13, and Apollo Bowie, 7. Blake Shelton, wore a tuxedo jacket, vest, and bow tie with his distinctive blue jeans. They then celebrated with an ornately detailed, multi-tiered wedding cake, dancing, and fireworks to round off the evening.
Gwen Stefani later wore a lily-white silk-crepe and tulle strapless dress with crystal and sequin decorations, including hand-sewn love birds and baby birds to represent the couple and their children, to the party. The style was spiced up with a short tulle veil with gentle pink floral embellishments and Le Silla crystal-embellished cowboy boots. Shelton, on the other hand, wore a black tuxedo with a pair of trousers that gave his look a country flair.
Recently, Blake Shelton opened up about something from his wedding day that moved him and was very meaningful to him: Gwen Stefani’s vows. Carson Daly, who officiated their wedding ceremony, had asked both bride and groom to write their vows, and where Blake Shelton wrote his vows in the form of a song, "We Can Reach The Stars" with Craig Wisemen, Gwen Stefani went the traditional way and wrote her vows.
On the wedding day, Gwen Stefani read her vows, and that is when Blake Shelton understood why she took it to her heart and talked about it all the time. Blake Shelton told People Magazine that Gwen Stefani talked about her late brother and dad like she had known them the most. He added, "She didn't make it seem that way, but it felt that way as she was speaking about them. She said she wished they were there and what kind of men she thought they must've been. Man, it hit me. I couldn't believe how hard it hit me. I felt like, at this point, I've kind of gotten calloused. Not only that, but I guess I'm not because that slayed me. It's hard to even remember what else she said. I'll never forget that feeling".
Blake Shelton released his wedding vow song, "We Can Reach the Stars," and revealed that he did it to surprise Gwen Stefani. Breaking down the song, Blake said that in the first verse, he highlighted the couple's first kiss, which he described as "like they were kids." Blake recalls their strong friendship in the song's chorus, singing, "And I know we can reach the stars. That's how far my love will go for you. I know we can reach the stars. You've already hung the moon. "
Blake Shelton shared in a statement that he is very proud of the song, "We Can Reach the Stars," and he feels incredibly honored to be with Gwen Stefani. He said, "That's why we got married in the first place." That's why we wear rings... because we want everyone to know. I'm thrilled to share this song with the world".
The country singer further mentioned that writing songs for him is like going to the dentist sometimes, so the fact that he did that was a complete shock for Gwen Stefani. "Everything happened exactly as it was meant to happen. It was just like, "Wow, we did it." I have a song about my wife. ' It was so exciting to me", Blake Shelton added, "I want to declare this about her to anybody that wants to hear it." Not releasing it didn’t feel right because the song is as important as me wearing this ring. I want to shout it from the mountaintops. I’m married to Gwen Stefani, and I wrote a damn song about it. Listen, if you don’t believe me", the country singer lastly added. Gwen Stefani commented on their social media that it was "the most amazing, beautiful gift I ever received."
Gwen Stefani meticulously boxed up her gown after the wedding, which was an intimate ceremony attended by only 40 of the couple's closest friends and family members. In their family chapel, a church bench personalized by their wedding guests serves as a personal memory of their big day. In October 2020, the couple, who met and fell in love on the set of "The Voice" in 2015, confirmed their engagement.
