Blake Shelton & Gwen Stefani are officially Mr & Mrs Shelton!
Over the weekend and after six years together, the country superstar, 45, and No Doubt singer, 51, have tied the knot during an intimate ceremony in front of their closest family and friends on Saturday (July 3). The ceremony took place inside a chapel on Shelton’s ranch in Oklahoma, built exclusively for the superstar couple to say their “I Do’s.”
This is Stefani’s second marriage following her high-profile marriage to BUSH frontman Gavin Rossdale and Shelton’s third marriage. The “Minimum Wage” singer was previously married to Miranda Lambert and Kaynette Gern.
Shelton and Stefani got engaged back in late October 2020 in Shelton’s hometown of Oklahoma. They first met as coaches on NBC’s The Voice in 2014, following both of their public breakups. The superstar couple began dating in November 2015, just a year after working together as coaches on The Voice.
The couple has gone on to release four duets together throughout their relationship thus far, including “Nobody But You,” “Happy Anywhere” and more.
Below we compiled all of the details you need to know about the Shelton’s wedding.
Carson Daly Officiated
Stefani’s longtime friend and ‘Voice’ cohort Daly officiated the couple’s wedding.
“Here comes the bride… so honored to get to marry two of my favorite people on earth,” Daly captioned a series photos of himself officiating the Shelton wedding, before adding his best wishes to the newly married couple, “may God bless you guys in this new chapter of your lives. We love you!”
Daly shared a series of images from the wedding, beginning with a photo of himself side-by-side with Shelton as Stefani walked down the aisle towards the love of her life. The slideshow of photos continued with a photo of the newlyweds posing with Daly, while the third image was of Daly, his wife and their four children. He concluded the series of images with a group photo of the Daly family alongside Shelton and Stefani.
“It was incredible to be part of such an important moment in their lives,” Carson said Tuesday on TODAY. “The best way to describe it is it was perfectly them — the whole weekend and the marriage itself. It was as elegant and refined and cool as Gwen is, and it was as country and down-home and fun as Blake is.”
Daly has known Stefani for over 25 years and Shelton has become a close friend of Daly’s since working together on The Voice.
Gwen Wore Two Different Custom Vera Wang Dresses
Both of Stefani’s elegant Vera Wang gowns were different styles.
The second dress, which Stefani wore to the reception, was described by the “Slow Clap” singer as her “party dress,” featuring a tulle mini skirt. The look was completed with white cowboy boots, which were designed by Le Silla.
Gwen’s Dresses Paid Tribute To Her Three Children
Stefani’s elegant Vera Wang gowns were different styles, but they each paid tribute to her three children, Kingston, 15, Zuma, 12, and Apollo, 7. The veil of her dresses included her children’s names as well as her and Blake’s name within the embroidered design.
Her reception dress included an embroidered pair of hand-sewn love birds, which symbolized the couple and three baby love birds, which represented Stefani’s children.
Their Wedding Cake Was Five Tiers With A Sentimental Meaning
The beautifully designed five tier wedding cake included swans, elegant designs, intricate piped white icing resembling a ruffled lace look, sugar flowers, chocolate cherubs and an arched cake topper of a bride and groom (wearing a black cowboy hat). The cake was situated on a round table decorated with white roses and was designed by Fancy Cakes By Lauren.
Lauren’s Kitchen is a Dallas, Texas-based baker who was a competitor and multiple gold medal winner on the popular Food Network Challenge TV show, where one of her winning cakes was hailed by the judges as “The best cake ever made on Food Network,” according to the baker’s website.
“This wasn’t just a wedding cake we made for two superstars,” the cake designer shared on Instagram. “Our bride wanted to make a sentimental statement by recreating her parent’s wedding cake. Both of Gwen’s parents were there to see her honor them with this cake. This style of cake has become a lost art of free-hand piping called Lambeth Cake Design. It’s slowing making a comeback in weddings and I’m sure Gwen and Blake have just pushed Lambeth right back into demand with their five-tier beauty. Complete with white swan pillars, bells, tiny sugar flowers, and white chocolate cherubs…. All of the small piping details are layers upon layers of intricate Royal icing that creates an elaborate cake design fit for (literally) America royalty.

Per Daly, “You guys are two of the best songwriters in the world, we want to hear your words.”
“Gwen starts… and she crushes. Not a dry eye in the church… and it was so perfect,” Daly added of the personalized vows being said during the ceremony. “Guitar comes in frame, stool, next thing you know, he wrote her a song, he sings her a song while he’s crying that he wrote especially for her… not a dry eye in the house,” Daly said on TODAY.
