The singers Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani got married on Saturday in an intimate ceremony in Oklahoma.
Page Six reported that the small wedding took place at Shelton’s ranch, where he had previously built a chapel with the goal of marrying Stefani there.
Shelton and Stefani started dating back in 2015 after meeting while they both served as coaches on “The Voice.” They became engaged back in October of last year. Stefani said back in April that she and Shelton are planning to keep their wedding low-key.
“We’re keeping it very simple. Really simple,” Stefani said at the time. “I think the guest list will not have a lot of musicians. It’ll be like my mom and my dad. It’s literally going to be just family. We are looking forward to that, though.”
“It’s going to be fun. We’re going to make it really fun, but it’s not going to be a big [event],” she added. “It’s not like the queen and king are getting married or something like that.”
That same month, Shelton revealed the first song that he plans to dance to with Stefani, after she becomes his wife.
“It’s ‘If You Leave’ from the Pretty In Pink soundtrack,” Shelton explained. “We talked about this. We both love the song. We’re both fans of the ’80s, why not? Don’t you think that would be a great one, though? We’ve literally talked about that.”
Shelton has said that he “absolutely” pictures himself living a simpler life with Stefani someday, out of the spotlight.
“I hope that’s not too far down the road. Ten years sounds like way too long to me,” he said. “I’d like to see that sooner than later. I mean, we’ve both pretty much taken it to the limit as far as our careers go, and touring and now the television thing. It’s been fortunate to accomplish a lot of things, but hopefully at some point we’ll get a chance to live some life. And I think we’re both ready for that, honestly.”
“The older I get, the more I kind of feel like I’m starting to turn into a little bit of a hermit,” Shelton continued. “You know, and just kind of passing on things.”
