Shelton and Stefani’s intimate wedding ceremony took place in July, at Shelton’s ranch in Oklahoma, where he built a special chapel specifically for their wedding.
“It was absolutely a picture-perfect intimate wedding with family. Everyone at the wedding was so thrilled to see Gwen and Blake finally get married,” a source said. “They have been talking about a wedding for so long and wanted nothing more than to officially call themselves a family. It was a fairy-tale experience even for the guests.”
Stefani recently let her love for Shelton be known on their two duet tracks: 2020’s “Nobody But You” and “Happy Anywhere.”
