Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton finally got married – and Carson Daly officiated the wedding!
Stefani shared the news on her Instagram on Monday with a clip of her showing off her veil and wearing a white dress with the caption “July 3, 2021 ❤️gx”.
The stunning ceremony took place on Saturday night at the Shelton Ranch in Oklahoma, in a chapel Shelton built for Stefani on the property. About 40 guests attended the wedding – the couple’s immediate family and friends.
Shelton hinted that the wedding would take place this summer when he joined TODAY with Hoda & Jenna in March.
“I’m afraid if she and I wait until next November, then I’ll be in the ‘The Voice’ cycle again, and I really want to be able to have plenty of time before and after, so hopefully this summer,” says Shelton.
The couple announced their engagement in October 2020, after a five-year relationship. Stefani shared a photo on Instagram of her showing off her engagement ring while kissing Shelton.
Shelton shared the same image, writing: “Hey @gwenstefani thanks for saving my 2020 … and the rest of my life … I love you. I heard a YES!”
Stefani, 51, and Shelton, 45, started their relationship in 2015 after getting closer as coaches of “The Voice”.
In January, Stefani shared a laugh with TODAY co-hosts Hoda Kotb and Savannah Guthrie, when Carson recalled telling the couple to “pump the brakes” when they started dating.
Carson, who has hosted “The Voice” since its inception in 2011, has spoken of his friendship with Shelton while reflecting on the 10th anniversary of the singing competition earlier this year.
“He’s become one of the closest people in my life, to be honest with you,” Carson said. “We’re very close, which is ironic because I – obviously, you know, I’m a producer on the show, I’m involved in recruiting coaches. I convinced some people to do the show. And she was the person I knew the least. And so it’s just ironic that 10 years later he’s the one I’m definitely the closest to. Our families are vacationing together at this point, so I am very grateful.
“Outside of what the show, from a job standpoint, has done for me and my family, you know, my friendship with Blake is probably the second best thing I’ve given up being in the program.”
Carson and Stefani are also close, having known each other for over 25 years. Both from Southern California, they met when he was a radio DJ taking the stage and No Doubt had just exploded. Years later, they reconnected when she became a coach on “The Voice” and from there they developed a sweet bond.
“It’s pretty crazy that I’ve known @gwenstefani since 1995,” Carson wrote in an Instagram caption in 2019. “Here she is on my afternoon radio show in San Jose, Calif. #TragicKingdom came out in October of the same year. Now almost 25 years later we are working together @nbcthevoice She is the most realistic, sweetest, talented, coolest person I know. Thank you for our friendship. @ blakeshelton You have a keeper my brother!
