Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton Are Married! Get Your First Look at the Bride's Wedding Dresses
The newlyweds' family-centric celebration took place on July 3 in Tishomingo, Oklahoma.
Congrats to the newlyweds! After almost six years together, Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton are now husband and wife. As they have throughout their entire courtship, they made their intimate big day, which took place over the weekend at Shelton's ranch in Tishomingo, Oklahoma, all about family. The pair kicked off their packed wedding weekend with a dinner at the country singer's restaurant, Ole Red, People reports. "They looked really happy together and definitely in love," an insider told the outlet, noting that the loving celebration included Stefani's children, Kingston, Zuma, and Apollo, who ate food like burgers, fries, and tacos during the festivities.
During the main event on July 3, the bride wore two Vera Wang wedding dresses. For the ceremony, Stefani sported a white, silk georgette frock with a sweetheart plunging neckline, cut-away back, fitted bodice, and high-low tulle skirt, reported People. She pulled her hair up into a sleek updo under her veil, which was hand-embroidered with the names of her three sons.
Stefani's reception gown also featured subtle nods to the most important people in her life: her now-husband and children. The short tulle, embroidery-filled dress had hand-sewn love birds along the silk, crystal, and sequin waist, which were meant to represent the newlyweds' love. "You need a party dress when you get to marry Blake Shelton," she captioned an Instagram post of the garment; she polished off her look with white stiletto cowboy boots by Le Silla and a veil complete with floral appliqués and a white bow. The frock also featured three baby love birds—yet another nod to her kids.
The bride and groom spotlighted other memorable moments from their nuptials, too. Photos of Stefani and Shelton's first dance have since circulated, showing the dapper groom dressed in a black tuxedo jacket, bow tie, and blue jeans. Another major moment? The duo shared a kiss by their ultra-classic five-tier wedding cake, adorned with a bride-and-groom topper. We even got a glimpse of the big-day locale, thanks to outdoor snapshots that showed a vast, green backdrop of trees and a sunset to cap off their private celebration.
