After six years together and less than one engaged, Gwen and Blake finally tied the knot on Saturday on the country singer’s Oklahoma ranch.
The couple tied the knot on a chapel on Blake’s ranch, which was built by the country crooner with ‘input’ from his bride to be.

‘It’s really a tribute to their love. They are going to get married in the chapel, most likely early next year.’
Gwen and Blake got engaged in October 2020 after five years together. The two met in 2014 when Stefani became a judge on The Voice. Blake has been a judge on the NBC show since its inception in 2014.

The couple filed for a marriage license in Oklahoma on Thursday, according to TMZ.
The move made it clear that the couple were likely to wed soon, as the license was only valid for 10 days.
While the nuptials took place over the Fourth Of July weekend, sources have told the site that the couple didn’t plan on going all out.

Instead of a big bash, it was reported they would be sticking with an intimate affair for family and close friends, which was safer as coronavirus continues to spread and the more contagious delta variant makes its way across the country.
That doesn’t mean it wasn’t intricately planned, though. In May, Blake joked to USA Today that it would be a ‘pretty classless wedding’ if he planned it, which was why Gwen was taking charged.
‘I want her to do all of that stuff and handle it because it’s going to be great. She’s in the middle of planning the thing, and she’s always so mindful … of me.
‘She’s like, “Hey, I don’t want to just take this thing over.” I think she’s having a blast doing it. I mean, I know she’s having a blast doing it.’

Gwen later opened up about ‘torturing’ herself for months before she uncovered the alleged affair. In an interview with Harper’s Bazaar, she said: ‘Everybody knows what happened next… I obviously know the date.
‘It was the beginning of hell. Like six, seven, eight months of torture, trying to figure out this big secret.’
She added that she wanted to ‘tell everybody,’ but kept quiet about what was going on for the sake of her children.
Gwen went on: ‘What happened was praying. That’s my childhood, that’s how I was raised. And I think I strayed from that. But you know when it gets that bad, you just get desperate?’
BLAKE’S PAST LOVES:
The country singer married his high school sweetheart and road manager Kaynette Williams in a small ceremony in Gatlinburg, Tennessee in 2003.
Blake was married to Kaynette Williams from 2003 to 2006
The marriage only lasted three years, with Kaynette accusing the singer of being ‘guilty of inappropriate marital conduct.’ in her 2006 divorce filing.
It’s rumored Blake cheated on Kaynette with fellow country singer Miranda Lambert who he went on to marry.
Blake talked about falling for Miranda when they performed on stage together in 2005.
In one interview he confessed: ‘I’ve never had that kind of experience with anybody. I was a married guy, you know? Looking back on that, I was falling in love with her, right there on stage.’
Miranda Lambert, 2005 to 2015
Blake went public with Miranda after his divorce was finalized in 2006.
Of feeling the same spark that Blake did when they performed a duet together in 2005, Miranda told Dateline in 2011: ‘I knew he was married. I had seen their wedding pictures in Country Weekly. I knew better, like, ‘this is off-limits’.
Blake married Miranda Lambert in 2011 after nearly six years of dating
Blake proposed to Miranda in May 2010 during a romantic stroll near Miranda’s Oklahoma ranch. After nearly six years together, the couple married in 2011 at a ranch in Boerne, Texas.
But it wasn’t to be, as four years later in 2015 they announced their decision to split.
‘This is not the future we envisioned,’ their reps told Us Weekly at the time. ‘And it is with heavy hearts that we move forward separately. We are real people, with real lives, with real families, friends and colleagues. Therefore, we kindly ask for privacy and compassion concerning this very personal matter.’
While the musicians never commented on the reason for their divorce, rumors have long swirled that cheating – on one or both of their parts – may have played a role.
Blake cryptically tweeted about ‘karma’ in 2018 after reports emerged alleging that Miranda had begun dating musician Evan Felker when he was still married.
