Well, the rumors were true. Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani did indeed get married over the holiday weekend, just in time for their first Independence Day as husband and wife. “The Voice” couple tied the knot in an intimate ceremony at Shelton’s Oklahoma ranch. And Stefani took to Instagram, sharing some adorable photos from their first moments as a wedded couple.
The ceremony reportedly took place on July 3. It confirms the wedding rumors, which started circling last week following the revelation that Blake and Gwen filed for a marriage license.
In the first photo, we can see what appears to be a portion of the church that Blake Shelton had built on the Oklahoma ranch property. Blake embraces Gwen as they stand on the precipice of a rocky cliff. The soft pinks and purples of twilight can be seen on the clouds in the background.
The second shot finds Blake Shelton behind the wheel of a golf cart, Stefani looking overjoyed with a bridal bouquet in hand. The newlyweds look picture perfect as they presumably make their way from the church to the reception area.
In the third picture, Blake and Gwen kiss behind a towering wedding cake and tote champagne glasses. The intimacy of the whole affair is on display here, as it doesn’t look like the scene is set for tons of guests. The cake, however, is incredibly intricate and goes nicely with the white flowers, house, and wedding dress.
Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani Fans Can Hardly Contain Themselves
Despite the early wedding photos, the people want more. And we can’t blame them. Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani’s wedding was a long time coming. The seas of adoring fans they’ve gained via their music and their roles as judges on “The Voice” are invested.

The Wedding Ceremony Itself
After announcing their engagement in October, fans and friends alike couldn’t wait for the couple to finally tie the knot. But only a select few were invited to the small ceremony.
Among the guests invited were Gwen Stefani’s parents, and several musician colleagues of the couple.
Thankfully, the weather behaved and the holiday weekend proved the perfect time for the couple to say their vows. Congratulations to the happy couple! We can’t wait for more pictures.
