As we told you, Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani’s “The Voice” host Carson Daly officiated their wedding this weekend, and now Carson is spilling some more details about the big day.
“It was incredible to be part of such an important moment in their lives,” Carson shared on “Today.” “The best way to describe it is it was perfectly them — the whole weekend and the marriage itself. It was as elegant and refined and cool as Gwen is, and it was as country and down-home and fun as Blake is.”
He added, “They’re an unlikely pair,” noting, “They’re like if you pair delicious fried chicken with a glass of champagne. On paper and on the menu it doesn’t seem to work, but it works. It’s comfort food with class. And everybody roots for that.”
Carson says he encouraged the couple to write their own vows. Gwen had the guests in tears with hers, while Blake turned his vows into a song that he performed on guitar. Check out some of Carson’s wedding photos below.
- Meanwhile, Vera Wang, who designed Gwen’s two wedding dresses, shared details about her looks, including how Gwen incorporated her three sons – 15-year-old Kingston, 12-year-old Zuma and seven-year-old Apollo – into the outfit.
Vera says Gwen accessorized her “custom lily white silk georgette and hand tumbled tulle high low gown with a plunging neckline and a cut away back,” with a “chapel-length veil” that featured, “hand embroidered names of Blake, Gwen, Kingston, Zuma and Apollo flanked by 2 white roses at the hem of the veil.”
Vera also designed a shorter party dress and veil for the big day, which also included a shout out to Gwen’s family with a “pair of hand sewn love birds symbolizing the couple,” which were “joined by 3 baby love birds representing Gwen’s children.” As for Blake, he paired his tuxedo jacket and tie with his signature blue jeans.

- The sorce adds, “Everyone who attended the ceremony was talking about Gwen and Blake’s love for one another,” noting, “They have been so careful because they’ve had their hearts broken and this wedding made everyone feel like dreams do really come true. They have both been through a lot and deserved to find each other. They were meant to be a couple in every way.”
